    I am SO glad this thread got started...I've always thought about getting a Brazilian, but was too scared to ask around about the experience!

    I think I might get this done before the wedding...how long before would be ideal? I don't want to get it too close and be irritated, but I also wouldn't want it to start re-growing before the wedding! Any ideas?

      I'm a wimp! I've never even gotten my eyebrows waxed. If there any other wimps out there, I recommend Nair bikini. It smells like rotten eggs while you have it on, but 5-10 minutes later you are smooth sailing. for me, it lasts about 4-5 days but it's totally painless : )

        I find that the eyebrow and lip do tend to cause little pimples.

        Nothing like that with legs or bikini though.

        Frankly, I use a depilitator on my legs (think epilady, but they are so much better these days), and I swear by it. Yes, it hurts, but there is no regrowth for almost 2 weeks. And I can do it whenever I want, and it doesn't cost me $45 a session. That being said, I can't use it on my bikini. It's not as quick as waxing, and just too OWWIE!

        Happily married since 2008

          For those that are getting eyebrows waxed, I recommend finding someone who can do it by "string". Once you get your eyebrows/lips done by string you will never go back to wax. I love it.

          The esthetician sp? takes a thin string and pulls the hair. It doesn't hurt and IMO it looks cleaner.

          This process is used by different ethnic groups but its becoming a trend.

            I believe its called 'threading' at least around here it is. My daughter pays $3 at one of the local Indian beauty shops.

              so happy - that sounds interesting! Perhaps I will check it out before my wedding, so I dn't have to worry about my few strays and then the blonde ones that might shimmer in pictures.

                  my BF does the threading for her eyebrows, it looks way better than waxing, but she says it hurts more. I guess everyone's pain threshhold is different. Mine is zero!
