Waxing

Recommended Posts

How many of you have had a reaction (with either really bad redness & swelling or those white bumps) when having a wax job. I really want to get my eyebrows & possibly my upper lip (I know, how gross, but I've been blessed with all these little blonde hairs there & I HATE it) waxed 2 days before we leave so I don't have to worry about it so much. I just don't want to have a reaction or some bumps, so I want to hear your stories ladies. Thanks so much in advance for your replies!!!! Happy Friday friday.gif

How long does the waxing generally last for you?? If you have it done a week before, do you worry the hair will be back?? I made an appointment for Friday & we leave Sunday, do you think I should move my appointment up??Sorry for all the ??, but I've never waxed, I always just spend hours plucking (not really wanting to do that in Maui :) THANKS!!!

If it's your first wax you will find the hair might come back a bit sooner. You might find regrowth within a week but it's hard to say. My first wax the hair started to grow back within a week but it wasn't too bad plus it came in thinner. However I agree with MegaShay that the redness or bumps would be far worse than having to pluck! I might move your appt to be safe!

I too have never been waxed either but made an appt for my brow and lip before I leave for Mexico blush2.gif Am I supposed to refrain from plucking until then? Thanks ladies!

It's not a bad idea to refrain from plucking just so the wax can grab every available hair and you have a nice tidy wax. I guess it really depends how fast your hair grows back.

I used to wax, until I found the great world of threading. When I used to wax, I would get red bumps and it would usually go away within a day, but just to be safe move your appointment. And like everyone else said, I would rather pluck than having to deal with redness or white bumps in your wedding pics! Yikes!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
