I advise at least 3 weeks growth after shaving, but be aware that it may take a few treatments to get best results. I prefer to trim my client's hair rather than get them to do it themselves as there is always a risk they'll cut it too short, but if your therapist refuses to do it for you I'd advise no shorter than 3/4 to 1cm (grade 3 on your clippers). Some folks can get away with a bit shorter, but try that for starters.

Just out of curiosity, why won't your therapist trim it for you?

Have you thought about going to a therapist who specialises in Brazilians? The length of hair wouldn't be an issue as they'd trim it. Also, you need to feel at ease and not as though you're being lectured. Are you pleased with the results that you get or are you new to Brazilian waxing?
