Bikini Wax?

Recommended Posts

question ladies...do they use the strips with wax or the hard wax on you? if you've had both, which one is easier? the couple of times i went, she used the hard wax so i was wondering if there was a reason for using one method or the other. thanks!

My lady uses the strips. I heard the hard wax was better but couldn't find any salons that used it. My waxer used to use the hard wax, but her opinion was that it didn't do as good a job / last as long. I didn't really care if it lasted less if it hurt less, which is what I heard! But now that I've gone 3 times, it's much better anyway.

I had the strip wax for years and then when my girl went on maternity leave recently, I tried a new salon that uses the hard wax. I love it! I find that the regrowth takes longer, it hurts less but it does take a little bit longer. I love it so much that I may not go back to my old girl when she returns :)

Carolina, my aesthetician uses a both waxes. She uses the hard wax for the more delicate areas and the strip wax for the larger areas. I think the hard wax is more painful but it could be where its being applied. She says the benefit is the area can be applied with less likelihood of irritation unlike the strip wax.

 

I'm thinking about trying the laser hair reduction just to reduce my trips to the salon but can't commit to that decision.

thank you ladies, guess I'll stick with the hard wax.

 

wendy: I want to do the laser hair removal too!! don't know if you've seen this thread, but it's answered some of my questions. I'm just scared because they say it works better on lighter skin tones. I'm gonna set up a consultation after the wedding, since I won't be in the sun after sept.

I did laser hair removal before my wedding and it def had an impact (still 2 years later), but it def wasn't permanent. My hair is thinner and comes in less, which makes it easier when I get waxed, but it was by no means permanent. My waxer was surprised at how little hair I had that grew in 4 weeks between appts. Which also make it less painful, but it wasn't worth the money for me.

I didn't even have to think of shaving for my entire vacation and weeks after! The armpits I would definitely recommend... it was so nice not to worry about it ...or have any type of "shadow" perfect for wedding day!! I will be doing this again!!

I'm glad you recommend it! I'm thinking of going for the Brazilian and armpits for my wedding. Question, do I start now? My wedding is in October, how soon before we leave should I do it so that it's at it's peak smoothness but not red and blochy. Also, how long do I actually have to 'grow it out' to get the best results? That part frightens me just as much as the actual wax, lol. Sorry if that's TMI.

You should have a few waxes definately before October....first few times are tough but you get used to it. As far a letting the hair grow out....in my experience the bikini area just needs to be a little more than visible and they get it smooth. the longer it is you can be sure all you growth is out so keep that in mind. As for the armpits---grow those babies out if you are going to wax them. that hair grow in all different directions, lenths, thickness. Attempt to have mine waxed when they weren't long enough (she should have said NO). She ended up using tweezers---OUCH!!!

I just finished reading thru this whole thread and I just don't know if I can bring myself to do a brazilian...I don't know how you girls do it?! But I do give you credit. I def think I can handle the pain part. I have no problem getting my legs or armpits done at all. But when it comes to the bikini area, I think I'd be too embarassed to spread my legs and be all exposed in front of some stranger!! But would love to do this for the wedding and I'm sure FI would love it too!

Im loving sugaring...way over waxing! Its totes awesome! Some of the girls mentioned sugaring to me on the forum and now Im hooked! U get a brazilian, full legs, and eyebrows for way cheaper than waxing and my hair growth is way less with sugaring and much finer. I have my next appointment this monday and its been 6 weeks! Im utterly impressed!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
