Waxing lasts about 4 weeks.  My advice is that you get it done asap so you aren’t all red down and around there!!!

When I got my waxing down there, I bruised. And took a few days to clear up. But went almost a whole month! Have you waxed there before? Either location.

You won’t have any stubble, but if you wait to long you may have irritation.  In My Humble Opinion I wouldn’t wait until Saturday to get it done.

I waited until the day before my wedding to get my armpits waxed and the person doing it messed it up. I ended up with horrible burns that required medical attention… by some miracle no one noticed and you can’t see them in pictures, but they were SO painful!!

So yes, I would suggest getting it done a a few days earlier, just in case.

i wouldn’t risk having red/bumpy armpits!  when i waxed down there is took like four days for the redness/bumps to go away.  i’ve never done my pits though.  i’m getting waxed down there the tuesday before the wedding.  i’m getting married the 17th too!!!

Just a tip – right before that time of the month is the MOST painful time for a full-on wax! Is there any way you can wait a few more days? Trust me – the girl behind the wax has seen everything, and as long as it’s a fairly light day it won’t be an issue at all, just ‘tuck the strings up (sorry to be graphic).

And … my underarms always hurt WAY more than bikini. It is such a sensitive area, so be prepared for quite a bit of redness. Also – make sure she’s dilligent in tweezing any strays! That’s one area you can’t do very well yourself!

@peacheslea: Agreed, I get brazilians and the woman tells me to wait until the last day of my period of RIGHT after it because it’s the least painful, and that before your period is the worst. She said they can handle anything. I’d wait – for pain purposes. The hair won’t grow back by your wedding.

As someone said, please for the love of god tuck the string in. I actually accidently removed a clients tampon while waxing her brazilian. We still laugh about it.

Have your technician use either talc or pre wax oil to prevent skin irritation. Request hard wax, it is much more gentle on sensitive areas.
