Sooooooo I’m considering getting a brazillian for my wedding/cruise honeymoon. HOWEVER, I’m faced with a dilema. I’m doing a boudior shoot and I’d rather not wait till a week before the wedding to do that, but do I really want to worrying about shaving on the cruise? Did any of you ladies wax? How long did it last? Would you do it again and if you didn’t wax do you regret it?

@KT_Hime: Can you do your budoir shoot 4 weeks before your big day, to give yourself adequate grow-out time?
I got a full Brazilian, and I am SO glad I did! DH loved it, I loved it, and it was great not having to worry about my horrifying Italian-Hungarian jungle while we were in the Carribean!

For me, waxing lasts ~1 week. BUT, for pretty much everyone else on the planet, I think it’s supposed to last 2-3 weeks, so depending on your scheduling it may be feasable for you. I’m guessing your wedding date is wrong? You have to let the hair grow out for a couple weeks in between waxes (once it starts poking through the skin again).

I’m totally pro-waxing, but there’s a couple of things worth noting.
1. The first time is going to hurt. Like a b*tch. And there’s no way to avoid it :-/
2. In order to go for the first time, you have to have about 3-4wks of growth.
3. You have to keep up with the waxing (no shaving inbetween!) otherwise it’s all for naught.
I personally have waxed continuously for the past 2 years or so, and I love it. It typically lasts about a week before you start to see grow-back. One of the perks of keeping up the waxing is that your hair will come in smoother and thinner, making the effects last longer and the waxing process much less painful. And then when you keep up waxing, depending on how quickly your hair comes back, you’ll go about 3-4 weeks in between appointments. Hopefully this helps answer any questions! Let me know if there’s any other advice I can help with!

Thank you so much ladies! You have been very helpful, I like the idea of doing the shoot 4 weeks before so I think I’m going to go ahead and do that and then wax!
