Definitely have some wine beforehand! My waxing salon is fabulous – they provide all the wine you can drink (which, my first time in, was a LOT). Also, I suggest going in four weeks before the wedding and then having it redone just before the wedding day. It hurts a lot less after the first time, and because the hair grows in unevenly you’ll be smoother after the second waxing than you were after the first.

By the way, it’s totally worth every penny. In My Humble Opinion.

Oh! Exfoliate daily after the wax. And get some ingrown hair solution (your waxing professional can suggest a good one). Use it once a day after exfoliating, works like a charm.

Meeeeee. My appointment is Tuesday. So far i’ve done 2 regulars and I am in LOVE. Why have I not done this forever?!?! I go to a really chic spa (worth it! Only $35) and the girl is in her mid 20’s and really fashionable and doesn’t make me weird for being all kinds of nakey on a towel for her to examine. Her wax is soooo smooth. She gives me Aveda oil and it smells so nice. No residue, either!

She said she just does the B-wax from the laying down position and wont make me do things like get on all fours and put my legs up, like the horror stories i’ve read. That was mostly why i’ve been scared to do one! Being manhandled by an aesthetician with gloves and powder in hand doesn’t really do it for me

I figure a) hotter hm nights, right? and b) no shaving or razor burn on the honeymoon. Razor burn+ocean=lots of pain

Yes for sure!  I can’t imagine NOT going to Brazil before my wedding day!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve been curious about Brazilians but I’m too afraid of the pain. Which is odd because I’ve been getting my eyebrows waxed for like 15 years and they don’t hurt, but I’m still afraid of it hurting down there when they rip it out ๐Ÿ˜ฎ  Interestingly enough, my fiance has been mentioning for a few months that he kinda sorta wants to try a "manzilian" (a Brazilian, but for men, lol). If he does it, then I’ll suck it up and do it too, regardless of the pain, haha!

That’s awesome! My Fiance thinks we are all crazy for putting wax on such places. I think he’d slap me if i mentioned HIM getting one.

Mine didn’t hurt. It kinda bit a little bit, but i was like, "really? that wasn’t so bad…i was expecting a lot worse"

If you expect the worst, you know it’ll be better =]

Yes, manzilian. There’s even websites and everything! A quick googling gave me this one, for example: http://manzilian.com/faq.html ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh, I wanted to post on this, but I wasn’t sure how to word it! I want to do it before the big day, but I’m a little scared. I’m not really sure where to go, I figured if I pick a salon/spa for my hair that’ll be the place I try for my "trip"

I just forwarded that manzillian website to my Fiance – his response was "What kind of metro idiot invented that"

certainly, but I like to keep on this regardless of the wedding.

it hurts the first time and then less and less each time after, which I am not sure is a good indication of how much sensitivity remains. 

But I much much prefer how it feels and looks.

I use Headshed, a great exfoliatant but I am thinking because there might be um, well, a good reason to get the balm they offer. I’ve never had problems with ingrowns, but I will diving in a drysuit for a week and I can forsee a need to provide a little maintenance.

 

 CellarDoor –  do you have recommendation for pdx?

I have started going to the Dermaspa in Bend and it’s pretty good, but I don’t think it’s the best. And I am always on the hunt for the "best brazilian". I used to like Bellini’s on 23rd when I lived in Portland. 

When you live out here in the middle of nowhere you try and find the best waxing salons in the cities you visit so you don’t have to make special trips (ie 6 round trip just for the waxing).

Use Tendskin to prevent ingrown hairs.

I would rather wax anyday of the week than shave down there. Just suck it up, it hurts for two seconds and the most painful part isn’t anywhere that you’d think! It’s right on the top of your pubic bone, or whatever you wanna call it. I’ve done it 3 times now, and i only fear about 3 strips of wax. Just something I personally do, I shower right before I leave and use one of their little wet towel things to make sure it’s all clean. If they are gonna be down there it sure as hell better be clean! And to people in Co, and I go to this place called wax in the city, and i love it! It’s 45 dollars, and they have the tip already added in so you don’t have to worry about it.
