they actually do a great job of just making small talk and not letting it be awkward.   you just kinda, don’t talk about it, but i even made a joke about it and we laughed and carried on.  it helps a lot to just laugh it off.

Where I go they are super professional about it. I always feel embarrassed lying there until the woman comes back in and she is super professional about it. 

Make sure you go somewhere hygienic, and take an anti-inflammatory one hour before. Also you may be red and uncomfortable after so do it at least a week in advance. I would get one done 10 weeks before the wedding to make sure you don’t react and then another a week before.

it’s awkward. it hurts like hell.

i’ve been fully waxed a couple times. it’s great. every time, they’ve been super professional about it. but god, it hurts. i don’t think it’s worth the pain.

How long do they typically last? I’ve never had it done either but I want to for the wedding night and honeymoon (we are going away for two weeks) just wondering how often it should be done before the wedding, in case doing it more makes it last longer?

Definitely do it at least 15 days before the wedding. Otherwise you might end up with irritated red bumps on your wedding night! Also…don’t shave…it’ll itch like freaking crazy during your honeymoon!

KapOct18:  you can try to wax yourself. That’s what I do because I’m too chicken and too cheap to have someone do it for me. It’s not too bad if you use good wax, just do small sections at a time. The only thing I can’t handle is armpit waxing – I can’t stand watching the veins pulsing and the bleeding :/

I’d get a trial waxing for the first time 2 months in advance and see how long it takes the swelling to go down and how long hair takes to grow back.  For me, I’m red for 2 days after.  I see some re growth starting 2 weeks after waxing, so I wouldn’t do it a full 2 weeks before your wedding, because you might have some hairs popping up on your honeymoon.

Pop an Advil half hour before your appointment and that helps. Also yes, your first time is the worst, but as you go more often the hair gets thinner and they’re not as bad. I’d recommend finding a place that uses hard wax as well.

You know your skin, if you ofen get irritation or have reactions do it well before, otherwise I’d say no closer than 3 days before is good.

As others have said, the girls are super professional about it. They have one of their own! And to them it’s really just skin. It’s better than going to the doctor in my opinion.

KapOct18:  Do your research and find a reputable brazilian salon. Do NOT go to a regular eyebrow waxer or nail salon. If you get the right salon/person, it barely hurts, and they make it really comfortable for you. I recommend going every 4 weeks for two-three months before your wedding. Your first time may leave you red and uncomfortable, but every time after that will be better. So get the bad ones out of the way before the wedding, lol.

KapOct18:  please, please find a reputable and legit salon/skin care center for your Brazilian. i would check out yelp and find a well reviewed business near you.

and trust me, it is not awkward at all. the estheticians are always super professional and laid back.

i would go at least a week before your wedding day and be sure to load up on aspirin about an hour before your appt. you will never want to shave again. 🙂

I’ve been wanting to try waxing as well, can any of you lovely ladies answer a question for me? Do I need to be, um, “full bush” to get it done? I normally shave, so what, er, length does the hair have to be for waxing to work?

SilverWire:  some will trim the hair down for you, but if it’s a first time you should shave a week or so before to get about half a cm of length so the wax can grip. If it’s too long it will hurt more and might break the hairs instead of pulling them out (so will grow back instantly like shaving).
