Waxing

Okay for starters I have never had any kind of waxing done other than my eyebrows. I would like to get my legs and private area waxed so I am "clean" for the wedding and honeymoon. How soon before should I go?

    Since it's your first time waxing, go now (since the wedding is 6 months away).  You don't know how your body will react and it's not something you want to try for the first time right before the wedding/HM.

    I'd say just a couple days. If you want to be really smooth, I wouldn't do it more than a week before your wedding. ETA: and what Jager said. Do it once now and see how you like it and how long it lasts.

    The first time I waxed, it grew back quicker. I'd definitely try it before. The worst part for me is waiting to 3 weeks for it to grow out.

    I agree with PPs to go now and see how your body reacts. There have been a few occasions where I've broken out from waxing.  

    Are you planning on doing an airbrush tan for your wedding?  If so, that will play a part in when you get waxed.  My MUA (who also did my airbrush tan) recommended that I get waxed at least 24 hours before my appointment.  My wedding was a Friday.  I went for brow and bikini waxing the previous Saturday, then for my tan that Wednesday.

    Maybe just try the "airstrip" wax to see how it goes.  Then you can do the full monty if that goes well.

    Great thanks everyone, I will make an appointment and see how it goes

    Do it now like the ladies said and see what you think.  Take a pain reliever about 20 min before your appointment.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Waxing : The "airstrip" literally waxes everything else EXCEPT the strip on the front, including the labia and anal area.  It is what most salons consider a Brazillian.  If OP just wantes the sides cleaned up, she should do a Bikini.  If she wants something between that and a Brazillian or BW, she needs to talk to the salon and see what her options are and what the charges are.

    That's true.  A bikini would be better for a starter wax or like you said talk to the salon and see what else they have for her to choose from.

    I got my second wax ever about a week and a half before the wedding.  I recommend going only three or four days before the wedding.  I just got a bikini and it was starting to grow back by the last few days of the honeymoon (about 3.5 weeks later).
