The Brazilian refers to completly removing all the hair in the pubic and not just the bikini line.
That being said let me offer a small bit of advice, in the name of fighting ignorance and all.
Bikini Area+ hot wax= Hire a professional.
This stuff in the wrong hands can be quite painful.
Having waxed my legs and pits on numerous occasions I decided to try to do my bikini lines. I’m sure the resulting nightmare was largely my fault probably having to do with the angle of removal and some other complicated formula of which I was totally ignorant. I read the direction and followed them to a T. I applied said hot wax to my … uhm… outer labia area, rubbed the strip over that and while holding the skin taut(no easy feat if you are doing it to yourself and are not double-jointed and are trying to hold a mirror so you can see exactly what you are doing but can’t really see cause your hands are in the way, but I digress)and I guess I didn’t have the skin taut enough and OH MY GOD THE PAIN of having all your pubic hairs yanked at the same time with enough force to bring tears to your eyes but apparently not enough force to remove them.
Ok, I thought to myself, apparently I’m doing something wrong. (YOU THINK?) So I reread the instructions and made a second attempt at removing the now cold wax;I grabbed hold and let 'er rip. YEEEEOOWWWWW I yelped and when I was able to breath again I grabbed the mirror and looked at Muffy to assess the damage. It appeared I had removed the strip but a good portion of the wax remained and was now sticking TO THE HAIRS ON THE OTHER LABIA. I literally began to cry. Then I did the only thing left to do; I called my sister up and told her it was an emergency and she had to come right away, I didn’t tell her the reason why.
Well she got there in about ten minutes and, after laughing so hard she nearly wet herself, she helped me cut the remaing wax out with scissors.
:Shudders at the memories:
:collapses sobbing and weeping:
:regains composure with much effort:
Now I use Gentle Formula Nair. It works great, lasts for about 2 weeks and is real easy. I’ve tried to forget about that whole ordeal, but Muffy never forgets…
