Waxing advice - ladies only (unless you are a boy who's had a bikini wax)

My boss is sponsoring a belated Christmas gift of a day at the local spa!

We will get a manicure, pedicure, massage, and some other treatment of my choice (I turned down a facial - too stressful on my horrible skin when I have to work later in the day). I will probably have a wax of some sort - do I go for my first bikini wax? Will I hate myself later walking around the rest of the day or is it not that bad? Any advice for pain other than taking a Tylenol beforehand?

Any sassy comments made by boys will be punished

Re: Waxing advice - ladies only (unless you are a boy who's had a bikini wax)

My girlfriend got a Brazilian wax a couple weeks ago and did a tequila shot beforehand. She said it hurt, but not *that* much.

The whole time leading up to it, I was like a kid on Christmas eve, but I kept trying to "act cool" about it (and mostly failing) because I knew she was the one who had to endure it.

Thank goodness she did!

I don't think I'm brave enough to go for Brazilian - probably just a regular

What is a Brazilian wax???

And don´t you normally shave for getting rid of hair? What´s the difference to a wax?

I didn´t know I´d still have something to learn being 30+

BLS it sounds scary to me. Don´t do it. :scared:

brazillian you take everything off

Waxing is when you rip the hair out by the root, so very different from shaving.

and hiphop, if you're wondering why someone would want to get waxed, it's because the results last a lot longer than shaving. and if we're talking brazillian waxing, there's much less risk of painful ingrown hairs.

this thread has reminded me i need to get my eyebrow waxed. yes i said eyebrow, i'm starting to look like bert.

oh god i can't pluck mine. i've got naturally thick eyebrows, which would be great if it were 1988 and that was still in style. it would take me hours if i were to pluck my eyebrows.

I only pluck when I have a few hairs, right now I too need to get my brows waxed. Too many hairs to pluck.

Someone on "Oprah" called a Brazilian wax on a pain scale of 1 to 10 (childbirth) an "8"...lol.
