It’s that time again…the beach is calling. As much as I love the beach, the scariest part is definitely the pre-beach waxing session that has to occur.
I’m pretty tolerant of pain and I usually just go all out for a Brazilian wax, but here’s why I’m thinking that, for now, a bikini wax will do:
1. Bikini waxes are always cheaper, usually by about $20. In Manhattan, a good, “cheap” Brazilian wax can cost anywhere from $55 to $70. That’s a lot of bank to get the hair ripped off my area.
2. I can probably pass with just a bikini wax. Come on, Brazilian waxes only got big a few years ago. People were definitely wearing bikinis before Brazilian waxes became all the rage.
3. Sometimes it just feels weird to have no hair left down there. You’re supposed to have hair down there, it’s natural. Sometimes I feel like a prepubescent little girl when there’s nothing going on down there. Not to say I don’t trim or take care of that area, but no hair can get a little…naked.
4. Ingrown hairs start to show. For those of you who don’t have ingrown hairs, I am incredibly jealous. It takes a lot of maintenance to avoid them. They’re not really painful as much as I think they’re ugly. Leave it to someone with dark brown hair and incredibly fair skin to get tons of ingrowns. Not cute.
Lovelies, which do you choose — Brazilian or bikini — and why?
