I was walking around in Bangsar and saw a store called Ministry of Strip which is a store that does waxing, including brazilian waxes. I was quite surprised to see it, for things like Brazilian waxes arenâ€™t things that are advertised openly here.
For the uninitiated, a Brazilian wax is the waxing of the pubic hair or bikini area. Sounds painful eh? It is, I heard. Someone I know tried to do it herself instead of paying a professional, and could not get out of the house for a week! I’m not kidding! You don’t really want to be messing around with hot wax or wax strips down below.
If you have heard of a Brazilian wax and are interested to try it, it would be a good idea to do some research about it online first, so you have an idea what to expect. You could read my Brazilian Waxing Guide to read up about what it is and what it entails.
A Brazilian wax is a scary thought for me. However, it might not be for you, especially if you enjoy wearing bikinis or swimsuits that are cut high on the legs. Getting a Brazilian wax may be the best way to hide any unsightly bumps from shaving, or unwanted stray hairs.
If you have had a Brazilian wax done, I would love to hear about it!
Update: If you’d like to read about my experience of a Brazilian Wax or my tips on how to prepare for a Brazilian Wax session please read my post here. I will have reviews on waxing salons to come too!
