Hi, I'm Summer Vasilas. I'm going to teach you bikini waxing for beginners. Getting started. This service can seem intimidating but I'm here to show you how easy this experience can be. Let's get started. The first thing is you want to make sure that your hair is long enough. If you've been shaving, you want to make sure that you're letting that hair grow at least two weeks before you start to wax. This is going to make your waxing easier. The second thing is you can look for a numbing cream. You can get that at any beauty supply store. Typically those need to be applied about 30 to 45 minutes before you wax. Apply that before you start. Also exfoliate at least the night before or the morning or before you start to wax your bikini area. Once you've down those three things, then you can go in to your service. You want to start with applying a little bit of powder. You can use a talc free powder such as corn starch or a talc powder such as baby powder. You want to make sure that's rubbed in really well. Then you want to break it in to small sections. This is going to be easier for you to handle from a pain factor and it's going to be easier for you to pull those smaller strips on yourself. You want to start on the outer sections and move in. I'm going to look for an area that has hair to no hair and that's going to be my starting point. I'm applying my wax in a thin layer and I'm creating an edge around my wax. That is going to allow me to pick it up easily to pull off. Notice my piece sizes are about two finger width. Very small and controllable. Pull it off and apply pressure afterwards. That's going to help take that zing away. Then you just want to keep moving forward. We have this top section here, we can do that in one piece, and this middle section. Always work out and as you get that outer section completed, then move inner. When you're just starting out, don't get overzealous. Do one piece at a time. Take your time and get it right. Your body will thank you for that. One of the things I'm watching is you have this tendon right here and that's my breaking point. So you have this lower section below the tendon, and the upper section above the tendon. If you make that your splitting mark, it's going to be easier for you to apply and remove these pieces versus taking a piece and starting all the way up at the top and applying wax all the way to the bottom. It's good to determine where your bikini line is. A good rule of thumb is one palm width is your bikini line. And that's where you want to use this hard wax. After that you're getting in to your leg territory. The nice thing about a hard wax is if you have a piece that's too thin such as this one here, you can go back and build it up. Just apply more wax on top of it. If that wax is too thin it will break. So make sure that it's thick enough. After you've completed your wax, you'll want to go through and see if there's any missed hairs that you need to tweeze out. And then you'll want to apply an ingrown hair inhibitor. This will help you from getting ingrown hairs. You want to use it directly after you wax. And then continue using it in between your next waxing services two to three times a week. Once that's dry, you'll want to apply a post soothing oil. And there you have your bikini waxing for beginners.
