    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

      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 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've never done a lip wax before. I do have a friend who uses Nair Face Cream regularly with no problem, so this may be an alternative.

                  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!
