What’s the Best Position to Adopt for an Intimate Wax

What’s the best position to ask clients to adopt during an intimate wax to reach those difficult areas?

Positioning is vital in intimate waxing because if you get it wrong you can make your client uncomfortable in more ways than one – pain as well as embarrassment. It can also leave the therapist unable to reach all the hairs that the client expects to be removed during treatment.

The most difficult and awkward hairs to reach are those around the back. Therapists are often taught to flip the client over and get them on all fours, but at nkd ( ) we use a different technique.

In Brazil, the nation which invented the Brazilian wax, you’d rarely get turned over on to your front because this pose can make the client feel exposed and vulnerable. Instead, we ask clients to adopt the “backward roll” position – where the client lays on their back hugging their knees to their chest.

This allows the client to stay lying on their back for the duration of the wax, which is far more comfortable, and gives the therapist good access to those difficult-to-reach areas. For clients who are less flexible, we ask them to lift each leg up in turn.

Occasionally we will ask a client to turn over onto all fours, if, for example, they have mobility issues or are pregnant. Also, if the client has a lot of difficult-to-reach hair around the back, turning them over may be necessary to make sure you reach every hair. For this reason, we do generally get men on all fours for intimate waxing, but not women.
