It’s summertime! That means it is time for shorts and bikinis!
Have you taken the plunge yet and come in for your first Brazilian? If not, it’s time!
When I tell people what I do, they either are super psyched or they seem terrified. So many people want to get waxed and they are either nervous or they have had a bad wax experience. Well, rest easy…we have seen it all!
There are 2 things that I have found that most women get nervous about when they think about getting their first Brazilian: the pain, and the embarrassment. I am here to tell you…you have nothing to worry about. Yes, there is some pain, but it is so fast and SO worth it! In my experience, we mostly here guests telling us at the end of their Brazilian: “Wow! That was so much better than I imagined!” After the first wax, the rest are smooth sailing.
Now, let’s talk about the other fear: you have to take your clothes off in front of someone! A stranger! In a bright room! Eek! Sometimes I think that we (your waxers) forget that feeling of embarrassment and modesty because we are SO used to being around people’s parts. It seems totally normal to us! And, I can assure you that we see it ALL! There is really nothing that phases us…least of all, your body! We love all shapes and sizes, and to us, it’s all just skin and hair!
Very early on in my career, I realized that we ALL have our own body issues. I remember, many years ago, I had a beautiful young gal come in for a Brazilian. She could have been a swimsuit model, and yet, when she hopped on the table she cautioned me: “Ugh don’t look at my cellulite!” I was shocked…not only was she cellulite free, but it occurred to me that we ALL look at ourselves and mostly focus on what we hate about ourselves and what we would like to change. These are things that probably seem so minute to the rest of the world, but we all have those things about ourselves that we wish we could change.
Waxing, and being around so many naked bodies, has taught me that there is so much beauty in everyone. Confidence and feeling good about yourself is better than all of the exterior alterations. As I have gotten older, I laugh at all the endless hours I fretted about parts of me that I hated. What a waste!!! Do you know what I realized? NO ONE CARES! No one thinks about you as much you think about you. When I realized that, when I finally understood that we are all just running around focusing on ourselves (mostly) it was actually quite liberating!
So…challenge yourself! Get naked and take a good loving look at your bod. What do you love about it? What makes you proud and happy? Go to a yoga class and see all of the different body types. Go to a beach or better yet…a nude beach…and see all of the differences. Notice that the people that seem the happiest and most free may not be the ones that are physically perfect…but the ones that seem the most confident. I encourage you to not waste one more minute worrying about what anyone else thinks about you and your beautiful self!
Get a Brazilian! In my experience, once people have their first wax they seem incredibly liberated! You did it! You got naked in front of a stranger! And…it was actually amazing!
My favorite thing…above all else as a Waxxer…is the ability to connect with another person, to validate them, to put aside their fears and insecurities, to affirm them. It is so gratifying to connect with another person.
Ready to try it? There’s no better time than the present, babe!
