    I have had the blue wax for my eyebrows and love it! But I moved and no one around here uses it.

      Dude, I've called/emailed so many salons it's not even funny. I work over an hour away from where I live, so I tried both areas and NADA!

      I guess I'll just have to stick with the strip wax, but it makes my eyes tear remembering!

        Carly, if you can't find someone who regularly has/uses hard wax then I would stay with hot/strip waxing. I had one person use hard wax and made me cry, when another aesthetician came in she asked if she could try it, it was much better.

        The perk to hard wax is the same area can be re-applied if good depillation (?sp) didn't occur. If you keep reapplying hot wax to the same area, it will become more sensitive (and red/irritated the next day). This is what I was told anyway, I'm not an expert.

        My aesthetician uses both types for bikini/brazilian waxes.

          I must admit, I am a little afraid to take the plunge too. I figure I should for the wedding since I will be in bikinis and all that. Yikes!

            Just finished reading this thread from start to finish, too funny!
            I've been getting brazillians for 6 years now, and they still hurt me like a MOFO!! I don't think it gets any easier, but it's SOOOOOOOOOOO worth the pain! Smooth like a baby's butt, no shaving, looks sexy and feels great for you and him
            My girl has got me putting egg whites on the area before bed the night of the wax. It's suppose to tighten up the pores etc. I noticed if i didn't do it, the redness and bumps were worse, so there's something to it.. start to exfoliate and moisturize a few days after the wax to reduce ingrowns
            Tip: help her keep the skin tight by pulling on your tummy or thigh

              Ok i am SO not ready for a Brazilian, but I hear that it is better for certain (ahem) experiences

              Maybe I will do the regular and work my way up to Brazilian by the big day! I will try the egg white thing, and I also heard taking Ibuprofen beforehand helps too

                I'm not really sure that anything can help! I took ibuprophren AND a half a percoset and I cried like a damn baby. But it was worth it and I'll be going for my second in a few weeks.

                But I AM going to try that egg white thing anyway! Cuz I'll try anything to make it less painful.

                    I don't mean to scare you off, b/c it was def worth it and I'll be going back, I just think you should be prepared!

                    Oh, I think it was mentioned alredy too, but you don't want to go right around your period b/c your more sensitive then and it hurts more. I know this is true b/c I once got my eyebrows waxed like 2 days before my period and it hurt way worse then normal, my eyes swelled up and evrything. It was the woman who always does then, so I know it wasn't anything she did, but she mentioned about my cycle and don't you know, she was right!

                      I am blessed to have a place in Houston that uses natural agents such as sugar and lemon to wax. It doesnt pull the skin, only hair, and its not painful. I go every 5-6 weeks for brazilian (landing strip) and my under arms. GL
