Hair Removal | Brazilian waxing

Some claim the origin of the concept Brazilian hairless privates date back to a letter written by Pêro Vaz de Caminha documenting Pedro Álvares Cabral's voyage to Brazil in 1500 AD, which says: "...suas vergonhas tão altas e tão çarradinhas e tão limpas das cabeleiras que de as nós muito bem olharmos não tínhamos nenhuma vergonha" (English translation: "their private parts were so exposed, so healthy and
so hairless, that looking upon them we felt no shame").

The style as it is known today was all but invented in the late 1980s at J. Sisters salon in Manhattan, New York. While the salon is operated by several Brazilian sisters, the style has been reported to have been named simply because it 'sounded exotic.'
