History of The Brazilian Wax

Even though Brazilian waxing became popular in the United States in the late 1980’s, the history of the Brazilian wax can be traced as far back as 3,000 years ago in Egypt! They used their form of Brazilian waxing for pre-wedding (and other) ceremonies, using a sugar paste mixed with lemon (this has led to another form of Brazilian waxing, called sugaring).

Brazilian waxing was brought to the United States in 1987 by seven sisters from Brazil. Throughout the past few decades the desires of the smoothness from a Brazilian wax has increases astronomically! Today's underwear, swimsuits & lingerie have gotten increasingly skimpier, drawing a need for the removal of more hair around the bikini area!  Brazilian waxing is a great solution for that problem.



The seven sisters who brought Brazilian waxing to the United States opened the J. Sisters’ International Salon, named after all the sisters’ names. They introduced the Brazilian waxing techniques! For these ladies, Brazilian waxing had always been regular routine their entire lives.  Since these Brazilian waxing techniques have been introduced, getting a Brazilian wax has become a common practice for women of any age.


In more recent years, forms of Brazilian waxing were also used in to keep cool in the hot weather climates, as well as maintain personal hygiene!

The Brazilian wax origins also has everything to do with the fashion trends of skimpy bathing suits and lingerie. Since New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world, it makes sense that getting a Brazilian wax started off in New York City!
