    Ugh, heading in for my 4 1/2 hours of head-to-toe waxing and primping next Friday. A little bit worried about the legs-- I've only done it once before, and as a regular "Brazillian waxer" I definitely thought it was WAAAY worse.

    The shins-- they hurt so bad. However, it is worth it. My advice: pop two advil 20 mins before you go. It'll help ease the of it.

      Really? I didn't think that it hurt very much at all! Obviously we have different pain thresholds! lol Maybe a brazillian won't be so bad if you think shins are worse!

        Only 2 ibuprofen?!? I used to take 4 ibuprofen (800mg total) before I waxed! LOL! The shins were the worst! But not having cactus for legs was worth every bit of pain

        I don't wax anymore since I decided to get laser hair removal. It was BY FAR some of the best money I've ever spent. I only have to "touch up" shave every 10 days or so, and the hair I do get is very fine and not very dark. I started with super coarse black hair, so I'm thrilled! Lasering hurt about twice as bad as waxing IMO, so I went in to my appointments with a nice thick layer of Lidocaine cream on and numb skin, which made it a piece of cake! The things we women do to ourselves in the name of beauty...

          I shave my legs but get brazilians done regularly. I will say that I only get sugar waxing done bc it is less painfull. The first time always hurts but after that not bad. I usually do my own brazilians now with a sugar wax called Moom from drugstore.com. I would definitely get one done professionally first (any waxing) before you do it yourself just so you can see how to pull and which direction. Hope that helps

            JEALOUS! Lasering is definitely something I'm considering. I actually have agood friend who is a laser tech at an esthetic/ plastic surgery place who said she could give me a great deal. I think I might just have to take her up on the offer-- I'm NOT a huge fan of waxing every six weeks.

            P.S. I'm totally taking 4 next time! Thanks

                How long are you alowing hair growth prior to your app't? I usually go about 1 1/2 weeks to make sure it's long enough-- is this too long? I HATE having stubbly legs for that long, but I always thought it was a must.

                  I think that's about how long I waited, even maybe 2 weeks because I was lazy! lol She told me that it was just right. I guess it depends on how fast your hair grows too!

                    ** Update **

                    It has now just been over 2 weeks and the hair is starting to come in slowly. I am very happy with my trial as I'm heading to Jamaica for 2 weeks, I probably won't have to worry about shaving until the very end of my 2nd week, if that! WOOOO HOOO!!!! lol

                      Two weeks, wow! How long has the wax lasted for some of you other ladies? I am regular bikini waxer, but I have never done my legs. What is the pain compared to a regular bikini or brazilian wax?
