Getting The Guts To Go Bald

20 Jan


Put on Those Barely-There Panties Girl!

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!

    We applaud your attempt at new landscaping, YouHeardItHereFirst. I'm sure your man will appreciate the fully moved lawn.

      I don’t suggest any woman do this for the gratification of a man! This is something you do for yourself first. But like I said, if you have a man, he better appreciate it!

    Might I also add that Brazilia Waxing Spa on Guadalupe is also very good as well and they have cheap prices if you’re a college student. Plus you get to support a local business if you’re into that.

    The first time is the most painful, but once you get a routine (going every 5-6 weeks) then it gets better. I always find that I have a little pep in my step after I go. Like I have a little secret that almost no one knows. 😉

      This girl gets my point! It’s wonderful to be no hair-don’t care if for no other reason that it makes YOU feel a little bit sexier down south… even if you’re the only one who knows it 🙂

      Now, a few questions for a pro like yourself:
      1. Is it true that it grows back less coarse?
      2. Is it like pringles? You know, once you pop, you can’t stop?
      3. Have you ever been burned (literally)? Bc that’s a huge concern of mine. Seriously.

      Let us beginners know miss wax sensei!

        PRINGLES?!? LMAO!

        1. Yes, in my experience it does grow back less coarse. As long as you are going every 5-6 weeks.
        2. Yes! Girl I have a waxing plan. Buy 3 waxes get the 4th free. I would see if your place offers it.
        3. No thankfully I have not. You are going to EWC which is a really great place from what I hear so you shouldn’t have that problem there because their technicians know what they’re doing.

    Don’t make me break out “A Trip to South America”. Lol Wow at his post, though.

    Just exhale as the wax comes off. Lol. Once you go brazillian you can’t go back. I love EWC!!

      EWC is rocking my world, because they are clean, professional, and quick! Did I mention that a regular price wax is 40 bucks? I’ve seen pricing at fancy schmancy salons anywhere from 60 to 80!

      There are no candles, no relaxing music, no fu-fu elements at EWC… and that’s fine with me. I’ll keep a couple 20’s in my pocket to do without 🙂

      And thanks for the breathing tip! I’ve heard that helps. Also, I’ve heard that you shouldn’t go anywhere near that time of the month bc you’re more sensitive. True?

    I’d be afraid of the comeback itch. Tell us how that goes.

      In my experience I’ve never had any itching problems as long as you are exfoliating down there.
