Bikini Wax: At Home

If you're not into putting it all out there for a stranger (or shelling out the salon price-tag, for that matter), doing your bikini wax in the comfort of your own bedroom or bathroom may be less intimidating.

There are a few essentials you'll need to get started. Look at a local beauty supply store or drugstore for a waxing kit to get you started.

You'll need:

  • wax;
  • heater;
  • strips;
  • applicators;
  • powder; and
  • wax remover.

Getting Started

Just as with a salon bikini wax, you can't attempt to remove your hair if you don't have enough of it. For fine hair, make sure length is 1/4 inch, with 1/2 inch for coarse hair. If that's a go, you'll want to first clean the area. If your waxing kit came with a cleanser, use that. Otherwise, pre-epilation oil is best; but remember, don't over oil.
