My First Brazilian Wax Experience - from a Customer's Perspective

You want to finally take that leap and get a Brazilian wax but don't know where to go or what to expect...

It's a story I am very familiar with from personal experience. When I first started searching for where to get the best wax I landed on a local salon. BIG MISTAKE!

I thought a higher price tag meant better service. Well, 19 year old me did at least. I go in and the ambiance was great seemed high end and everything. That wax definitely hurt but it was my very first wax of any kind. I was still unsure of what I was supposed to be doing or what to expect. Nonetheless I went home glad that I made it through my wax mostly tear free and promptly hopped in the shower to clean up. It was at that point I noticed a lot of hair left behind for a $80+ service.

I thought to myself, "what do I know? I'm not an expert maybe this is normal."

Spoiler alert: It wasn't normal!

I now know, after seeing Jacquelyn at BARE Body Waxing Studio that it can be normal to have some small superficial hair left behind after your very first wax because your hair grows at different rates and cycles throughout the year. So, not all of your hair can be grabbed by the wax at that first appointment. But to have entire patches of hair missed is just bad service.

19 year old me should've gone back after that and explained my concerns. Sadly, I didn't and I didn't get waxed again for another year because why pay that much to still have bad service?

When I decided to try again I went to a larger corporate franchise thinking these guys are definitely experts. I mean the word "Wax" is in their name!

I was surprised they did get the majority of my hair but they took a long time to wax just my Brazilian and it hurt just as bad if not worse than my very first wax! Not to mention the pain I felt when she tweezed individual hair on the most sensitive part of my body. I left thinking to myself surely waxing doesn't hurt this bad every time or people wouldn't do this monthly. Once again after the intense pain and overall experience I wasn't too keen on returning. After another couple of years I decided to bite the bullet and try again after having so many ingrown hair problems it hurt just to wear panties. That's when I happened upon the BARE Body Waxing Studio Facebook page.

I booked my first appointment and haven't missed one since the summer of 2020!

Ladies, your first wax will hurt (you're literally paying someone to rip your hair out.) But if there is one thing I've learned in all of this it's that it doesn't have to be a 7/10 on the pain scale. It can be a 2/10 and still be effective at removing the hair AND it only has to take 15 minutes. When you see an experience esthetician who cares they'll wax you and teach you how to care for your skin.

I never have to worry about any problems I might experience because the BARE Wax Team is always ready to answer any questions or address any of my concerns especially surrounding ingrown hair problems I might experience.

Now what are you waiting for? Get on the books and see for yourself why all of my friends say they are so glad I told them about BARE Body Waxing Studio!
