    @CupCakeMeg: take some ibuprofen about 45 min before your appt… and just relax πŸ˜‰

    @kperry3: idk what kind I had the last time I did it… it wasn’t too bad though. Just wished it would’ve lasted longer. lol

    I wish the cost weren’t so prohibitive here to get it done by someone competent. Who knows, maybe one of these days I’ll luck out with Groupon.

    @kperry3: I love it. The first time was long because she was telling me everything about it and telling me how to breathe. It wasn’t bad at all. Every time after that was like 15 minutes and didn’t hurt at all. Love it!

    Waxing feels less painful the more you do it, so that could be why too. I agree that I love hard wax though. I wax at home and have used both. I prefer the hard wax for doing your own bikini line…less mess, quicker, and less painful.

    @CupCakeMeg: Check out yelp to find a good ethsitician. Agree with PPs about taking ibuprofen ahead of time and being ready for  it to hurt. It’s a bit far from the OC, but if you happen to be up in LA, Queen Bee Waxing is fantastic – they are really fast, friendly, and pretty affordable.

    I am reallyfair with blond hair and ALL wax hurts me ALL the time.  It has gotten better after about a year. But my esthetician uses sugar wax and hard wax. It still hurts and for a long time she would tease me a bout it, but then she told me recently she read in a skin magazine that people who are fair with blonde or red hair have more nerve endings and waxing tends to be more painful for us! I felt much better beacuse I can tolerate some serous pain (having endometriosis I deal with serious pain every month). Just thought I’d chime in πŸ™‚

    @kperry3: Not to high-jack your thread but…

    We finished the pre-marital counseling series with the Pastor on Sunday and I had one of my “OMG we’re getting married” moments.  But I’m not really nervous quite yet.  LOL.
