The Brazilian Wax | It’s That Time Of The Year

As much as I love the fro, when the sun shines and the clothes start to come off, the fro below has got to go! Okay.. okay not so much a fro, but you know what I meant!

 I am rather new to the art of the Brazilian wax, having only had a few prior to my experience today. I was always deathly afraid of the experience, and yet loathed the idea of razor bumps and shaving. Now as I look forward to my upcoming vacations, and my increase in bathing suit purchases I am excited and yet loathing the experience. The reality is, waxing that area hurts! But it doesnt last after the “procedure” is done, if performed properly!

Here are a few tips to having a mildly pleasant experience:

  • Take 2 Tylenol about 30 minutes prior to your wax
  • Keep the hair short 1/8 to 1/2 inch
  • Rub a little Orajel on the area about 20 minutes prior to numb the skin
  • Make sure the esthetician applies pressure after each pull **so important**

When its all said and done! The pain is worth it, that is until its 6 weeks later and its time to do it over again! I have only had experience with honey wax, I hear hard wax is the way to go. Anyone have any experience?

How do you prepare for a wax job? And I call it job, because its just as much work for me as it is for them.
