    So it sounds like it's tolerable
    I'm such a chicken though.
    I would rather them put me to sleep then I wake up & voila it's done!!

        New growth after only a week? I thought it was supposed to last much longer. Does this mean that after a week you either have to start shaving again or go get another wax? How long do people typically wait in between waxings? I'm thinking about getting my first Brazilian done next month and I'm super nervous!!

          Well...it's been 2 weeks since my brazilian and I am barely starting to show. I have to go weekly or every 10 days for my underarms. But I will go 4-6 weeks for my legs. It all depends on how long you have been waxing for, how fast your hair grows & how dark your hair is. Also, keep in mind that when it starts to grow back it's not like when you shave & it grows back - it is softer, finer & they don't all grow back all at once & at the same speed. It's not like a stubble! I will also tweeze a few hairs if they are missed, or grow back quicker.

            So I finally decided to get it done before the wedding, is it ok to get it done the day before we leave? I cant think of any reason not to right.

              I would do it a few days beforehand. It might still be red the next day. Give it at least a few days to heal, and then you should be super smooth.

                  Hey Jen, I was just at a wedding at Gran Bahia, Akumal....it was beautiful!!!

                  Anyhow back to the waxing...you also need to stay out of the sun for about 24 hours or so after and I was warned not to tan within 24 hours prior to the appt as there is a chance the skin will be more sensitive and you can get a scab. It's rare and likely won't happen but it's good to be aware of these kinds of things before you go in for your appt.

                      I'm ready to get one too!
                      Now, Is there anything you need to do beforehand?
                      I think I read you shouldn't shave for 2 weeks before you go in for a Brazilian Wax? ANybody know of anything else in particular?
