bare down there ... adult content

Well kind of! I went in for my first brazilian last night and it was awful! I went to a reputable spa, and the lady who did it was experienced. The wax was too hot, so it hurt going on, and she even apologized for it being so hot, then she ripped off the sheets so slowly and kind of in a jerky motion - ouch! She left tons of little patches behind, and I noticed this morning that I'm actually bruised in some spots! It cost me $80, and I do a much better job with a razor! I wanted the experience, but I think maybe I'll just wax it myself in a couple months!! Any other horror stories out there?

  • I've seen quiet a lot of questions about brasilia wax on here lately. ... So now, at least I know what it means. Thank you.
    Sorry it was so awful.

  • I saw Wanda Sykes talking about getting on. And when she said she thought it was down, and then she had to turn over, that sold me on NEVER doing it...LOL I don't even like getting my eyebrows done ;)

  • I'm too chicken to try it, I'll stick with the razor! Sorry for the pain. Ouch!

  • There is no way I would ever get something like that done. I am a wuss when it comes to pain. I will either shave or pluck with some tweezers.

  • I've never waxed, i just couldn't bring myself to do that. But I am in the process of laser hair removal. Its not a happy experience but at least its permanent.

  • I could never do it. I'm way too scared. Ouch. If I were you, I'd call the spa and speak to a manager about the bruising and your experience.
