Last Friday during the Beat Breakfast I went to uptown Waterloo to see Laurie at Bare Essentials waxing. She gave me my very first bikini wax- I even tried to read the Geddes Gossip during.
(The fun really starts around the 6:30 mark)
I have never wanted to get waxed because I figured if guys don’t wax their manhood why the heck should I? Also I have thick, coarse hair (anywhere except for on my actual head… thanks for that, genes), and I’ve attempted an at home wax once and it did NOT GO WELL. My hair also seems to grow back at super speed.
I also thought it’d be weird having your bits out for someone else to groom- fun fact: You can get a bikini wax with your underwear ON! And the whole thing took LESS time than it took to read Geddes Gossip (2-4 minutes), so it’s all over before you feel awkward anyhoo.
One week later… I can say with confidence I’d STILL have no problem putting on a bikini and walking around- not worrying about any kind of visible stubble, red marks, or ingrown hairs. I didn’t quite believe Laurie when she said between waxings you have to wait FOUR WEEKS- but I get it now, even with my thick hair you still can’t see a thing!
If you’ve ever wondered about getting waxed but were too nervous to do it- I did this for you! I 10/10 would recommend. I’m looking forward to having a summer where I’m not constantly worried about whether my bikini line ‘shadow’ showed up or freaking out because I didn’t pack my razor.
Oh- and by the way.. I’ll DEFINITELY be getting a Brazilian in the near future too. Laurie at Bare Essentials says theirs takes only about 15 minutes... when an average waxing place can take up to 45 minutes!
If you want to try it out, here’s the Bare Essentials website... I’ll see you there in 3 weeks!
