Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
Having waxing done on Saturday. Its years since I had one and the whole area is rather wild and bushy. What do I ask for? Want it sort of neat and tidy, some left in middle though, not baldy and a bit off at the top. Help me wise waxers. Also, what to wear, knicker wise?
They may have paper knickers for you to wear (mine always does, and I still fit in them despite being hugely fat and 6 months pregnant). If wearing your own, pick ones that aren't too tight and are easily pulled aside. Bring another pair for after in case wax gets on the first pair.
Would suggest ibuprofen rather than paracetamol, taken 1/2 hours before the appt. Good for reducing swelling and pain.
I never know what 'style' to ask for either, so usually just end up describing what I want as you have in the OP. They're used to it. Better to describe and point at exactly where you want the line to be rather than announce 'I want a Brazilian' (as I did my first time) when you don't know exactly what that entails!
