OUCH! Is that what you think about waxing? Actually it isn’t that bad. Today I went to Johannes’s school and got my eyebrows and arm pits waxed. I get 50% off of services there so I figured I should give them a try. I have done both eyebrows and armpits before so I knew what to expect and they did a great job.
Here are some of the things I have learned about waxing. I am not an aesthetician so make sure you ask lots of questions while making an appointment.
-Take Tylenol or Advil 30-60 minutes before waxing.
-Make your appointment for a few days before an important event. This will allow time for any bumps or bruises to heal.
-Hair should be 1/4 inch long. Ask when making an appointment for hair length every location is different. 4-6 weeks is normal
-Hair will grow back slower and thinner than with shaving. Over time, hair will grow finer, with less hair.
-Do not wear deodorant for 24 hours
-Do not go swimming or use Hot Tub for 24 hours
-Do not touch the waxed area for 24 hours
I feel it is well worth the time and “pain” to get these services done. If you haven’t ever been waxed, give it a try. Its not so bad!
Did you really think I would put a picture of my "hairy" armpits on here? Isn't he handsome!!!
