I would love to get a Brazilian Wax but I hear it hurts like crazy. Does it hurt?
And..in which position you have to be while they wax you? I can't seem to get the picture in my head.
Yes it does hurt, but not enough to make me stop. I normally go every 4 weeks. Take an advil about an hour before hand. For me, the first time hurt the most, but I didn't go to the most experienced waxer. After that it was no problem. I guess it depends on who is waxing you as to what position you'll be in. I start on my back, with my knees bent and spread. Then turn over and hold the cheeks open. That's it.
The first time is the worst but it really isn't that bad. I didn't scream or anything just kind of uncomfortable pain that is over quickly, but then you do it however many times to get the job done! I thought the worst part was the anticipation of each pull of the strip! But definitely take pain meds before. Also, go to someone experienced! My first one was a girl who started only a few months before and I mean it wasn't too bad but it took her like 25 mins to finish. Then the next time was the owner of the place who has been doing it for years and years, it took her five minutes! It was great!
My position is on my back and I bend one leg up one at a time depending on the side she is doing. Then I lay on my side with one cheek spread at a time (if I want them to do that part). Also, I do help with the tightness of the skin. So, they may ask me to pull on my stomach or leg to make the skin tighter which helps decrease the pain.
I haven't read the response posts so if I repeat anything I apologize.
I get Brazilians using sugar wax. It is sooo much less messy than hot wax but when using it correctly it is actually applied against hair growth and removed with hair growth (the opposite of hot wax) It hurts, I won't lie but the pain is relieved extremely quickly. The 1st time I had it done I did want to cry but as soon as I looked at it I knew it was worth it and the pain immediately began to subside.
I've found position differs with waxers. W/ my waxer I lay on my back for the front and flip on my stomach for the back. My friend however goes somewhere else and her waxer has her get in a doggie style position. That would be too weird for me.
yes, it hurts
start on your back, end on your stomach.
i didn't like looking like a child after it was done so i'll probably stick with regular bikini waxes going forward
it hurts like hell but it only hurts that bad for a few seconds. I've only gotten the first one and they say it hurts less the next few times. I'm going again this weekend.
and make sure you get it done 1-2 weeks before the wedding. I got mine done 3 days before and it was a total disaster.
