Sugar wax is 100% natural, water soluble and can be less irritating than traditional waxes as it is made purely of Sugar, water and lemon extract and is applied at body temperature. Strips are used to remove the sugar wax.
Warm wax is applied thinly to the skin with a spatula, a strip is then applied and removed with a swift pull which removes the hair.
This type of waxing is best for larger areas such as the legs, arms and back.
Despite it's name hot wax is only slightly warmer than warm wax. Hot wax is a much thicker consistency which is applied in a circular motion onto the skin to surround the hairs, it then drys and is flicked off without a strip. This means it can remove even the finest of hair including vellus hair (peach fuzz)!
Hot wax is much better for delicate areas ie. The hollywood or brazilian as it doesn't pull the skin and grabs the hairs from the roots meaning less irritation and ingrown hairs!

Ideal for a first time waxer, the bikini line touch up is exactly as the name would suggest, a tidy up around the edges. A good option if you want to keep things on the natural side, but prefer a little more definition. Hair is removed from anywhere outside of a modest panty line - so around the tops of thighs and any hair above your knickers.
A French wax differs from other styles like a Brazilian as most of the hair is taken from around the front and sides, but the middle (labia) and around the back is left alone.
If you want down there to be smooth and clean of hair, without feeling too bare, French is the way to go.
The shape of the hair at the front is completely up to you, but the landing strip is a classic option. Other popular shapes include a tiny triangle and a postage stamp, but feel free to ask for whatever style you prefer.
Brazilian waxes are one of the most popular options when it comes to intimate waxing.
When you go Brazilian the hair is removed from the sides of the bikini line and all the way under and around the back, too. If you want to feel smooth and sculpted, go Brazilian. Just like with a French wax, when having a Brazilian you can ask for whatever shape you like.
The Hollywood. This leaves you with no hair. If you want to feel totally smooth and hairless choose Hollywood.
