Bikini Removal Descriptions
Bikini line standard : a simple tidy-up to remove hair that may be visible whilst wearing a bikini from the panty line, top of the waist band and upper thighs areas.
Bikini line extended : as above, but takes more off from around the panty line and top area, shaping it in to more of a triangle.
Brazilian : removes most of the hair from the front, leaving a small triangle or strip. Also takes all the hair from underneath and the back, so no hair would be visible when wearing a thong bikini.
Hollywood ; completely removes all hair from the front, underneath and the back.
