A well-groomed bikini line never goes out of style. Whether you just bought a new suit for that mid-winter's jaunt to the tropics, or you just want to keep things down there "debris free," a good waxing session can do wonders.

For a surefire way to get a smooth bikini line that will last (up to 6 weeks) waxing is the way to go, although it's not without its quirks. So whether you've already booked your appointment at the salon, or you plan to work with wax at home, take a look at some of the things you need to know to ensure a blunder-free bikini wax experience (or, almost).

Bikini Wax: At the Salon

If you're a bit intimidated at the thought of methodically ripping up the hair from your sensitive lady regions, you're not alone. Lots of women opt to let a technician do the work while they sit back and (attempt) to relax. (Tip: a sip of wine or champagne beforehand can work wonders.)

The most important thing to know before you go to the salon for a bikini wax is which type of bikini wax you want to get. Every salon may have slightly different names for their services, so in order to know what you should get, you'll want to brush up on a little bikini wax terminology.
