Confessions of a Brazilian Waxing Queen

Confessions of a Brazilian Waxing Queen

ebookYou’ve never heard stories like these before! Unless, that is, you’ve heard them from me ,Svetlana Burckhardt, Sydney’s renowned Brazilian Waxing Queen.

While the 1990s’ Sex and the City popularized the “Brazilian look,” the discomfort of the procedure led to a decline around the globe… until I led the movement to bring it back with my very own unique “Seven-Minute Brazilian” technique. By making the procedure simpler and quicker, I was able to give my clients the best possible experience – and keep them coming back again and again.

IMG_0952Now, in my book, Confessions of a Brazilian Waxing Queen, I dish out stories from below the belt. From the new mom who fell asleep on the table to her special touch with nervous first-timers and others who need just a little special TLC, I am literally sharing secrets – including diet, hair-care and beauty tips – from over 14 years in the beauty business operating my own successful salon.

I wrote my book because I had accumulated lots of stories from my experience working with people.

Clients come looking for more than just tips for keeping their hair under control – from styling eyebrows to perfection to almost any other area of the body. They also confide about all aspects of their lives. That’s why I published the book, to let others know that they are not alone.

I hoped to help women. I work with women all the time, so I know we all share many of the same problems, their concerns, and worries. We’re just at different points in our lives.

So who chooses the Brazilian look these days? You’d be surprised. Even the most reserved and professional women love to remove their hair ‘down there. Unless you’ve taken a peek around the ladies’ locker room, you’d never guess.

I am originally from Uzbekistan, a Muslim country in the former Soviet Union, I grew up admiring the beautiful, exotic look and careful grooming of the Muslim women around me. Today, I bring that exoticism and admiration to Australia, where I am a proud migrant who was forced to master English before I could open my own business.

I simply adore the freedom Australia provides women, and whether as a beauty professional, author, blogger or professional speaker, I want and wish to help women get the most out of the rights and freedoms they enjoy here. I want to give women the chance to get what they want out of life.

As an independent business owner who has built up my practice and reputation from rock bottom and difficult personal circumstances, I am glad to finally be giving back to the community through my books and speaking engagements.

It’s amazing to be able to share something!


Speaking & Activism

Speaking & Activism

My greatest joy in life is empowering migrants, teenagers and others. Is your life headed in the wrong direction? Have you reached a dead end, and don’t see any way out??? Stalled and you need a plan?

I can help you turn your life around. Instead of wallowing in problems, let’s find SOLUTIONS!

Through my talks, I empower and inspire groups by speaking about relationships, escaping emotional control and abuse, business and independence for women, and the power of fashion and beauty to turn your life around. Get what you want out of life by putting more of yourself into life: I can show you how.

Don’t settle for FORGETTABLE! This is a message you and your group need to hear.



I’m not just a beauty expert… I’m a teacher. Sure, I’ve picked up a ton of secrets over the years, but I’d be selfish to keep them all to myself. I want to help train YOU in the beauty work that I do!

I don’t have to tell you that this is a crowded field. The right training and certification can make the difference between “same-old, same-old” and the most successful independent business you could imagine. Being able to run my own business, have my say, and offer superior services to my clients has made my life meaningful and (dare I say it?) fun!

WAKE UP! It’s time to invest in yourself. If you’re looking for true independence, take the next step and become one of the most in-demand beauty professionals in YOUR area!
