How Butt Waxing Helps Soften And Thin Out Hair

The butt wax is very common, and we’re here for it. If you're wondering what a butt wax entails, we’re going to cover everything you need to know. Keep reading to learn about the butt wax, the benefits of getting one, and the best time to book your appointment.

What is Buttocks Waxing?

Buttocks waxing is a treatment that will leave you smooth for weeks. It’s included in our Brazilian and Manzilian treatments, called The Zillian V and P™. We also offer below-the-belt treatments for just the butt, between the cheeks, or with the bikini line (The Deep Kini™).

Buttocks Waxing vs Between the Cheeks

At Fuzz Wax Bar, we offer every type of wax service. You can request the buttocks wax which includes outer and inner cheeks. Or you can wax just between the cheeks. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable!

That Sounds Painful, How Bad Is It?

Getting your butt cheeks waxed feels like any other wax service. We use a soft wax which is best for larger areas of the body and can remove very short and fine hair. That, coupled with our speedy waxing method and your Fuzzologist-assisted breathing technique, will help to ensure a pain-free and pleasant experience.

Will I Develop An Itch?

Getting an itch is a common sensation when you shave instead of waxing your butt. That’s because shaving only superficially removes hair from the surface of the skin. Stubble can grow back in just a day, leaving you itching to remove it again.

This contrasts waxing which completely removes the hair from its root. Easy and itch-free. 

What If I Just Want The Crack?

At Fuzz, we do it all. Just the cheeks, crack, bikini, Brazilian, or all the above. We offer something for everyone. During your appointment, you can tell your Fuzzologist exactly how far you want to take the wax.

Does This Really Thin Out Hair?

Waxing is an effective way to not only remove hair but thin it. When your hair gets waxed, it’s removed from the follicles. This makes your hair grow back thinner and softer than before.

Why Hair Regrows Thinner And Softer

Overtime, your follicles become damaged from waxing. The more consistent you are with waxing, the less your hair will grow.

3 Key Benefits Of Buttocks Waxing



This wax treatment is popular for a reason. Waxing your butt can give you tons of other benefits that no other hair removal method can. 

1) Lasts For Weeks, Where Shaving Doesn’t

If you’ve considered waxing your butt, you’ve probably tried shaving it first. Shaving is a band aid solution to remove hair. The more you shave, the more often you have to shave again. And you’ll know when it’s time to because the stubble will give you a prickly poke you can’t ignore. 

With waxing, your skin stays smoother for longer. About 3 to 6 weeks, give or take. It’s all dependent on your hair growth cycle and how often you wax. We suggest retiring the razor once you start waxing. Otherwise, you might prolong your time between appointments.

2) Lower Odds Of Ingrown Hairs, Compared To Shaving

Chafing is one of the most common reasons to get a butt wax. Shaving can worsen the chafing and even cause ingrown hairs to form. A butt wax avoids all of that. It removes hair from those hard to reach places without irritating your skin.

3) Less Discomfort When Hair Grows Back

Gone are the days of prickly stubble. It’s an uncomfortable sensation you won’t have to worry about again when you get a butt wax. As long as you keep up with a consistent wax routine.

What Should I Do Before My Appointment

Pre- and post-wax care is important for getting and maintaining a desirable result. Before coming into your appointment, we recommend freshening up the area with lukewarm water. You’ll also want to avoid using lotions or oils before your appointment. If you don’t have time to shower, we got you. We offer hypoallergenic wipes to help you freshen up before the wax. 

We recommend exfoliating the area the day before your appointment. This can enhance your results. Ensure your hair is long enough to wax (about ¼ of an inch) and your skin isn’t cut or irritated. You can take pain medication a half hour before if you have low pain tolerance.

How Long Should I Wait Between Appointments?

You can expect to enjoy smooth, hairless skin for 2 weeks before hair growth begins. Your result will last around 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your personal hair growth cycle. Remember, the more you get waxed, the slower and thinner your hair will grow.

We recommend booking your next appointment 4 weeks later after the last. Try to resist the urge to shave between appointments. Shaving would only prolong your time between waxing, hindering your long-term results.

Conclusion: Does Buttocks Waxing Really Help Thin Out Hair?

Once you try waxing, you won’t want to go back. Butt waxing is a safe and affordable self-care practice you’ll be happy to add to your routine. You’ll enjoy long-lasting smooth skin and fewer ingrown hairs.
