2  weeks should be good if it is currently trimmed.

The hair should be a quarter inch or so in order for the wax to grip it, but not too much longer.  I would try it out before the wedding because you might have an unexpected reaction.

man, i was just thinking this same thing.  no topic is original here.  i’ve never had any wax at all tho, i’m always worried about puttin’ it all out there for some stranger.  i liken it too much to going to the obgyn.

is it horrible?

quarter inch should be good. Any longer and it will hurt more. If the hair is shorter than that the wax might not be able to grab the hair and you won’t have a smooth finish. Take some ibuprofen before hand, it helps with the pain and make sure to use some kind of lotion or aloe on afterwards. It’s not that bad and everytime after that it hurts less and less. By my 3rd time I barely even felt it!

Smitten_and_giddy: I thought the exact same thing when I went for my brazilian, but just kept telling myself…they see tons of these daily, my business won’t be any more special then someone elses! 

 

Its not that bad at all! I was the same, by my third time I didn’t really feel anything, and the no maitenance is SO worth it!

@specialklove: Do it at least 4 days before you get married. You shouldn’t have sex the day it gets done, and you want to make sure the irritation is gone. Some places charge more if they have to trim your hair… so as weird as this sounds, you may want to measure it yourself and trim to a quarter inch by yourself. 🙂

@elyamcc: How long does yours last? The first time mine seemed to last for a while! But I got mine done the Monday before my wedding, and it seemed to grow back immediately. Like during my honeymoon there were visible long-ish hairs… even though it was smooth before. I’m not sure if it’s the wax she used or what, but I feel like it grew back faster than before. Maybe I’m just fooling myself!

One shot of Tequila and make sure you go to a salon with hard wax and you ladies will be fine.

Just beware…they do wax in places you didn’t know you had hair! The first time I got a Brazilian it was fine…just stung a bit. The second time I went somewhere else…and she waxed my butt. IN my butt. It was less than relaxing, I’ll leave it at that…

I STRONGLY recommend getting sugaring instead of regular wax. It hurts soooo much less (although it still hurts a lot) since it doesn’t stick to the skin, only the hair. So it doesn’t remove layers of skin. That means less irritation. I didn’t even get bumps or ingrown hairs! Also, my hair started growing back about 5 days after, but a couple tweezings here and there and it was back to smooth.

@pinkandsparkly:  hehe i actually found that I felt NOTHING when they did that part.. maybe because I was numb/or in shock from the zaps of pain I had just endured lol

I think I’m just plain not OK  with it. I guess it is the norm, and the other times they didn’t do it. I’ve also had an “LA” bikini wax, which is “just what can be seen from the front”. AKA no butt waxing.

I’ve been a beauty therapist in the UK for the last 8 years and always recommend to clients to leave a growth of at least 3-4 weeks after your last hair removal. To be honest, its very unlikely your hair will be too long to wax down there but in the past, I’ve had to turn many people away if its too short. Please let it grow. You’ll get a lovely clean result and also, take a couple of ibuprofen beforehand.

You’ll be fine! – Oh and also, please make sure that you actually request  a brazillian when booking, not just a regular bikini wax – as alot of therapists don’t do the full thing!
