This post is for the ladies:
We all know what a chore it is to keep the downtown area… managed. I’ve always been one to try hair removal creams, razors, or heck, let it be. But recently, my MOTHER of all people has been trying to convince me to put my big girl panties on (or rather, shed those little girl undies) and get a wax. A full Brazilian wax.
My first thoughts: TERROR!
You mean to tell me that I’m supposed to disrobe, expose myself to another female, and lie there as she spreads hot wax on my most private areas and then RIPS it off?! No thank you, I’m no masochist.
I started asking around to see if any of my friends were bold enough to go bald. I found out that about half of the girls in my circle of friends had indeed tried it. Their general consensus was that it was indeed painful, but worth it to be hair-free and carefree!
So like a high school band nerd, I gave in to peer pressure. I went to the European Wax Center, and for those of you thREADERS in Texas, there’s just about one on every corner it seems. They have an offer where you get your first wax free for pits, bikini lines, and under arms, half off for the full sha-bang. Never wanting to do anything half way, I walked in and made an appointment for them to take it all off.
Sister to sister, It wasn’t that bad. But I don’t know if I should feel like a woman for enduring that OR a child in the sense that my va-jay-jay could be confused for that of a child’s now that it’s completely bare. For those of you a little creeped out by the resemblance to a 5 yr old gina, the wax technician (fancy huh?) can leave as much or as little on the face as you want. BUT: brace yourself when it comes time for the lips. OWIE. That’s where they get ya. Also, at EWC, they’ll throw in the butt for free. And believe me, compared to the lips, the butt is a breeze! Girl, if you can handle eyebrow waxing or threading, you can handle this.(And if any of you thREADERS decide to go to EWC, tell them I referred you!)
Two final tips:
Pop two advil before you leave the house. That’ll make the pain go away faster.
And if you have a man, don’t tell him what you’re up to. Make it a nice little surprise and let him find out on his own 😉 Plus, this is supposed to last a full four weeks!! I now fully endorse being bald, bare, and BRAVE! Goodbye razors and creams, I’m now a slave to the wonderful wax!
