Warning: this post will be described in excruciating detail. A Brazilian wax is not a joke, ladies and gents.
Firstly, some of you (who have been living under a rock) might be wondering what a Brazilian wax is. It is basically a beauty technician using soft wax on your kitty area and ripping off all the hair down there. And yes, it is from the top of your pelvic bone to the top of your ass crack – everything in between that gets waxed.
Having had my first Brazilian wax just yesterday, I can only describe it as a torturous 45 minutes. There were some shouts, minor screams, heavy breathing, clenching of muscles and a possible slap to the beauty technician. While she did try to take my mind of it and talk to me about random things, it did not work.
Even though it was a process to go through, I would highly recommend you try it at least once in your life. If you are planning on getting one for the very first time, here are some things to take note of:
Someone is going to be staring at your lady bits, very intimately
And when I say stare, I mean under a very, very bright light. You are required to strip off your pants and underwear and put on a skirt that is provided. You’re then asked to hop onto the table and lie down while she opens the skirt and then proceeds to stare at your hooha under a bright light. But things don’t just stop there, she then proceeds to open your folds up to inspect the hair length.
Cue the awkward blush. Let’s be honest, even when you’re doing the deed with bae, the lights are switched off or dimmed down and he doesn’t stare at it while he’s going to town at it. So, yes, a random stranger will be inspecting parts of you that you probably don’t even inspect yourself.
