Hi everyone, this is a short note to let you know that from today, blog posts will appear every other day or two until I get back on my feet. I had a rough day yesterday and I don’t have the mood, inspiration nor inclination to blog about beauty just right now. Things will go back to normal soon, but till then, I don’t want to leave things in the lurch so slowing down is the best compromise. Emails and comments will take me a while. Thanks for bearing with me 🙂 xx PB
I love MWS readers. They ask the most interesting questions and give me loads of ideas for blog posts and some of you have also given me some good ideas on blog layout (which I’ve been working on and tweaking, if you’d like to take a look at the navigation bar above 😉 ). But today, its about a question that reader pondsandleaves asked in her comment on a post 2 weeks ago.
My post was about hair removal where so many of you lovely ladies chimed in with your interesting ‘hair-raising’ experiences (since I have none to share). But Pondsandleaves wanted to know what you thought about bikini waxing. I thought it was very interesting, so here it is.
What are YOUR views on bikini or brazilian waxing?
I’ve tried going the full monty and I’ve even shared my experience with you and even tips on what you can expect, going in for a brazilian wax. I’ve only been to 2 waxing salons locally – Strip! and Apronbay, and I too have shared my experiences at both with you.
But then, silence. No more waxing salon reviews. Well that’s because I chose not to do it anymore.
Having experienced it, I can understand why people do it. It does feel cleaner down under but I also somehow feel weird. I feel that we were given hair down there for a reason (hygiene being one of it i.e. keeping stuff out) so if I didn’t get rid of my eyebrows because they don’t seem to serve a purpose (they do, to keep sweat from getting in your eyes and also because you’d look weird without eyebrows 😛 ) then I shouldn’t get rid of my hair down there either.
Bikini waxing is a little different from a brazilian wax, in that not all the hair is removed. Its just trimmed so it looks better when you wear a teeny tiny bikini bottom (theoretically speaking). If you wear shorts then erm… no need for any trimming then, is there? 😀
That said, having been for a wax, I can tell you that hair re-growth is much thinner so I can expect that if you do it often, you’d be able to slow down your hair regrowth and thickness quite substantially. Its the same principle with waxing your legs or arms. It was a good experience, but I guess that was it in the end – an experience 🙂
What say you about bikini and brazilian waxing? Are you a die hard fan of either and would like to champion the cause?
I can understand why people do it and if you do wear bikinis, please do trim or shave or wax because it just looks better. Brazilian waxing is, in my humble view, optional. That said, what do I know eh? 🙂
