What is a Brazilian wax???

It's when everything is removed, front and back. (In Brazil the women all wear thong bikinis; hence the name.)

Brazilian wax....

I get my legs and underarms waxed on a regular basis.

It really hurt the first time but I've gotten used to it

Make sure the person who does your waxing is experienced.

The bikini part of the leg waxing will only take 1 to 2 minutes.

The hair grows back slower and finer

I think the pain level varies from person to person.

I've gotten various waxes and it stings for a minute or two, but it's definitely not an "8" with a 10 being childbirth

A good way to prevent bumps/"razor burn" is to make sure the salon doesn't use oil or oil-based lotions afterward. Oil will clog the pours.

And go to a good salon. I went to an incredibly snobby one once and the woman did a shoddy job on my legs and it hurt. I learned if the beautician doesn't make me feel comfortable I won't put myself in their hands.

Well, I don't know if I will chicken out or not - I saved my underarms anyway, I think I could handle that. We'll see how it goes.......

A bikini wax does hurt, but the results are worth it. And the pain level depends alot on the skill of the person doing it. The first pull of the wax is a shock but once you get into the waxer's rhythym and learn to exhale when she pulls the wax off, you can somewhat control the pain.

I had one experience pretty damn close to childbirth level pain but that was a fluke...it's usually bearable and you do forget about it once its over. You will be able to go about your day afterward without even thinking about it.

A few tips:

Do not have it done the week before your period

If you are retaining water, it will hurt more

Take a few Tylenol before you go

My grandma said the same when I was learning how to use a tie!

May they both rest in peace.

You are so silly. Of COURSE I have perfect eyebrows, because I get them waxed and shaped every 3 weeks!

I do not wax ALL of the eyebrows silly.. just the middle and some off the top and bottom... you know I am Italian, gotta get rid of that unibrow and bush of a brow I have

I tried Brazilian a couple of times as a special treat for a certain someone. It was not fun. They go right up your bum! Not for the shy and faint of heart!

Now I just get a regular wax, which is very nice and tidy. If I can't find a salon I like (still haven't found one here in MD), I use Nair, but that doesn't last very long.

Brazilian is too painful and too EXPENSIVE to do more than once a year tops. I've never taken Tylenol before, not a bad idea!

When I was in SD with Char, we went to get our nails done and the lady at the salon asked (suggested) I get my eyebrows waxed. I have been waffling about that for ages. Paul loves them the way they are, but they aren't exactly shapely. Then again it seems that everyone gets theirs waxed. I'm not sure if I want the bother of the maintenance. Now I only have to pluck the odd stray hair and its one of the only things I never bother with!

Jury's still out on that....

I inherited my father's unibrow. I have to wax them every 2 weeks and/or pluck them almost everyday.

^^uhh, I wouldn't say it's 'up the ass', but the Brazilian gets basically ALL stray hairs in the nether-regions, other than a small landing strip front and center.

Well, I survived - I was brave enough to go for the underarms and the *regular* bikini wax, and it really wasnt much worse than eyebrows other than a few more rips. And I honestly wasn't thinking about it at all the rest of the day!

It was really a decadent day - VERY swanky day spa, started with an hour-long swedish massage, then the waxing, then a lovely lunch, followed by a nice long relaxing pedicure and manicure. BIG bucks for my boss for the 3 of us girls to do this

Sadly, 12 hours later, I don't feel like I had all this done just earlier in the day. It was horrible having to go into work after all this - not a single simple exam with vaccines, *every* cat was sick today. I'm ready to crash.........

But thanks so much for the advice, and I'm glad I conquered my fear - the esthetician says I'll be addicted now, we'll see

And Jess - you should have your eyebrows done at least once in your life. If you're really good, you can keep up with it at home with plucking for a long time afterwards to keep the shape. If you think of the eyes as the window to the soul, the brows are like the frames - try on a new set of frames, I bet you'll love it!
