Brazilian Wax in Atlanta
The oh-so-popular brazilian bikini wax had its beginnings on the beautiful beaches of Rio de Janeiro. It was in Rio where bathing beauties first donned the thong bathing suit, which required a thong-type-waxing to make it wearable. The date of the first brazilian waxing is unknown, but likely occurred in the 1970s or 1980s, in the sultry South American country of...you guessed it...Brazil.
How did this waxing technique arrive in the United States? Research indicates that credit for bringing brazilian waxing to the U.S. goes to seven, Brazilian-born sisters. Their names are Jocely, Jonice, Joyce, Janea, Jussara, Juracy, and Judsela Padilha, also known as the "J Sisters".
In 1986, the J Sisters opened a small waxing salon in New York, bringing with them the idea and the techniques to remove much or all of the hair in that region to make it possible to wear today’s thong underwear and thong bikini styles.
Many people use the different waxing style names interchangeably; they accidentally ask for a Brazilian wax when they really want a Hollywood wax, and vice versa.
For us a Brazilian means to wax right from the back to the front and then maybe leave a little strip of hair at the front - or a landing strip - which is basically like a little moustache. It's just a style.
With Brazilians, people love that every bit of hair is gone, they want their money's worth, they want it to be very clean-looking, so we keep on waxing until every hair is gone. It takes about half an hour and costs $35. It needs to be maintained about once every four weeks.
Why Is Brazilian Waxing So Popular? Many just enjoy the clean feeling that comes with being hairless. Some who did it just to wear a bikini now keep it up because "it just feels great"!
