Brazilian waxing in Brazil

In Brazil, 'waxing' is referred to as "depilação", and has different names to distinguish the area of the body as well as the amount of hair to be removed. The full Brazilian Wax is a "complete groin". The waxing style which leaves a small strip of hair is known in Brazil as cavado, a word that means "to miss peripheral material" and is also applied to bikinis, pants and shirts. In Portuguese, "to wax" is depilar, which means "to remove hair", regardless of method.
