43% of men prefer this style!

French Bikini Wax - €35

A French wax is not quite as daring as a Brazilian, but takes the majority of hair off the front except for a small strip and stops before the back.

Brazilian Bikini Wax - €50

Brazilian waxes differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between. Brazilian styles will leave a small landing strip or triangle in the front. 17% of men like this one

Hollywood Bikini Wax - €50

Hollywood wax is different from the standard Brazilian because it removes everything from the pubic area; front, back, top and bottom. Bottom line; you won’t have any hair down there. 12% of men prefer this style

Some common questions about Brazilian Waxing.

"I’ve never had a Brazilian Wax before, I’m nervous and embarrassed what should I expect?"
You will be asked to undress from the waist down and lie down on the treatment table. Relaxing music and a beautiful room with a comfy treatment table will settle your nerves a bit. In true Thai style Sawai will pamper you so you have nothing to worry about. A soothing oil will be applied to your skin to serve as a barrier between your skin and the wax and help make the hair removal easier. The wax will be applied in different sections and then removed. For most Brazilian waxes, a hard wax is used, but a strip wax can also be used. The hard wax is applied and is left for a few seconds to harden. It is then removed quickly, removing the hair. This wax shrink wraps around the hair and is gentler on the skin, making it less painful. Strip wax is the other option, which involves applying the wax and then applying a pellon strip on top and then the strip, wax, and hair is removed. You will be asked to move your legs from either side and to bring your knees to your chest. It’s pretty obvious that everyone is curious and nervous about this part! It’s really not as horrifying as you might think. You don’t have to be a gymnast or Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City to get into the positions needed to get your wax! Once all hair is removed, a soothing gel will be applied to calm your skin. Then, you’re out the door and on your way, feeling clean, accomplished, sexy and ready to take on the world!  
"How often should I wax?"
For best results, you should wax every 3 – 5 weeks. Don’t shave between waxes, as this disrupts the process. If you wax regularly, you will notice the hair growth will be less, the hair will be finer and more sparse, and the waxing process itself becomes much more comfortable.  
"I normally shave, how long do I have to wait to get my first wax?"
At least two weeks. This will ensure that the hair is long enough for the wax to remove the hair.  
"I usually get ingrown hairs from shaving, will I get them with waxing?"
Most clients find that their ingrown problems subside or stop altogether with waxing. Although, there are some clients that have a predisposition for difficult ingrowns. Exfoliating on a regular basis can help prevent ingrown hairs, and there are also products available for purchase that can help. Get The Bump Outta Here is one of our top selling products and does an amazing job preventing and treating ingrown hairs.  
"What will my skin look and feel like immediately after my wax?"
Your skin may be pink and have small bumps. This is very normal and will subside within 30 minutes to 24 hours. The bumps are the inflamed follicles and will return to normal. Your skin may feel warm or slightly tender to the touch. This also will subside within 30 minutes to 24 hours. Applying a cooling gel, cool compress, and avoiding heat will help speed up this process. It is also normal to have some short/stray hairs after your wax. We do our best to remove all unwanted hair, but because hair grows in different stages, some hairs may have been too short for the wax to remove. We suggest leaving those to grow so they can be removed at your next treatment.
"My friend had a wax somewhere else and said they burned her!"
The Lycon waxes used at Thai Touch are specially formulated to be used at lower temperatures than many other waxes. The temperatures are consistently checked and re-checked throughout the day. Lycons stripless hot waxes shrink-wrap and remove hair as short as 1mm! It’s perfect for short, stubborn hair. Lycon hot waxes have natural and soothing ingredients that nurture the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and completely hair-free.
"I had a wax somewhere else and it was a terrible experience, what makes your waxing different?"
Sawai has many years’ experience in waxing and training from Lycon so her application process has been perfected. The focus and specialty is providing the safest, most comfortable wax you’ve ever had. Specific techniques are used when applying and pulling the wax to ensure this. Used at an extra low temperature our Lycon hot waxes can be re-applied 5 - 6 times on just waxed skin, without discomfort or irritation.
"How soon after my wax can I have sex?"
Because your skin will be slightly tender and after your wax, it’s best to wait 24 hours. It’s also important to avoid because the spread of bacteria can cause unsightly breakouts.
"Do you offer men’s waxing?"
No, Thai Touch is ladies only! A place where women come to get away for it all, relax and have their treatment in comfort.
Things to know about waxing.
When you arrive for your appointment you will be asked to fill out a form. This is important because we need to know if there are any contraindications to your waxing service. Certain topical creams, prescriptions and health issues can affect and damage your skin and it’s important to make sure waxing is a safe option for you! Do not shave for about two weeks before your first wax! Hair must be at least 3mm for waxing. For best results do not shave between waxes. Return for waxing every 4 – 5 weeks for best results. If you do this, hair will grow in finer and slower. It will also make for a much more comfortable waxing experience! No client on Accutane will be waxed at Thai Touch. If you have taken Accutane in the past you must have stopped using it at least 6 months prior. Waxing cannot be performed while you are using Retin A or any prescription retinoid/vitamin A product. You must stop using these products at least 10 days before your wax. Many prescription acne products contain this so please check with your doctor first.
Things to Avoid before and after waxing.
  • No tanning 24 hours before or after your wax.
  • No steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs or hot showers for 24 hours after your wax.
  • No waxing over varicose veins.
  • Exfoliating with a loofah 24 hours before and after, and then on a regular basis, can prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid the gym, hot yoga, outdoor activities, etc. that will cause excessive perspiration for 24 hours.
  • Wait 24 hours before applying self tanners.
  • For underarm waxing, wait 24 hours before applying deodorant.
  • Avoid getting waxed the week before your period. Your skin will be more sensitive during this time.
  • Avoid caffeine before your wax. This will make you more sensitive, also.
