Tips N Toes - 5 Common Waxing Myths Busted - Nail salon 29607
Before we get started, let's get one thing very clear: People have hair on their bodies. Women have hair on their bodies. It's completely natural and totally healthy. If you have an issue with women who have body hair — or women who talk about having body hair — turn back now.
Now let's get more specific. In addition to having hair on their heads, women have hair on their arms, legs, underarms, and, yes, pubic area.
Many women are embarrassed about having pubic hair, but there should be absolutely no shame about it. We all have it.
That said, many women feel uncomfortable with their pubic hair and decide to get rid of it in some way or another — and that's totally OK! The most beautiful thing in the world is feeling confident in your own skin, so if making minor cosmetic changes to your body makes you feel more confident, go for it.
Whether you let it grow, trim it down or remove it all, what you do with your body hair is a personal choice and anything goes. However, if you choose to remove your body hair then there are even more choices to think about – shave, wax, epilate? In the world of hair removal, waxing and shaving are entirely different. Wax swiftly pulls hair from the root through repetitive tugs. Shaving is more of a trim, only removing hair from the surface of the skin and leaving the root intact.
For most of my adult life, I've stuck to shaving, since it's the most convenient and inexpensive method. In recent years, though, I've become more interested in waxing. In case you don’t know, waxing is the most popular hair removal method in any nail salon near me (or near you).

If you decide you want to go the waxing route this season, you’ve probably heard a lot of myths about getting it done.
1ST MYTH: Waxing will hurt, A LOT.
As waxing involves the hair being pulled from the root, it’s obviously going to hurt more than simply shaving it off. But is the pain from waxing unbearable? The truth is that everyone’s pain threshold is different, so what might be too much for some is barely noticeable for others.
It’s like pulling off a plaster. If done quickly and efficiently, it’s not that painful. Plus, it’s always worse the first time. Most people report that the pain from waxing lessens significantly each session, and it’s also worth mentioning that our pain thresholds can change due to different factors. We may be more sensitive to pain when run-down or ill, and women often feel it more a couple of days before their period. If you plan your wax at a good time and choose a professional, then there’s no reason why the sting should put you off waxing.
Another way to make your waxing experience less painful is to wax regularly. Having frequent sessions, about every 4 weeks, will not only give you visibly smoother results, but it will also be less painful. Why do we recommend regularity? Because there are 3 different stages of hair growth and each stage grows at the same pace. Just imagine, if our hair only had one stage of growth, then all the hair would grow together, fall out together and then, after a month, re-grow… Can you imagine how often our bodies would be bald because, don’t forget, what happens on your body, happens on your face too… Think about your eyebrows!
2ND MYTH: You have to let hair grow for weeks and weeks before.
People who choose to remove their body hair probably aren’t the sort who relishes letting it grow long for weeks beforehand – especially during the leg-baring summer months! Fortunately, nowadays hair can be waxed at much shorter lengths than ever before. Hair only needs to be showing with enough length for the wax to grip – around a quarter of an inch is all that it really takes for legs and the bikini line, and an eighth of an inch is all that’s needed for brows.
3RD MYTH: You cannot wax when you’re pregnant.
If you’re expecting, don’t worry, you can still be hairless! You’ll be pleased to know that it’s still safe to maintain your usual waxing routine. It’s safe to wax at all stages of a woman’s pregnancy. We recommend starting waxing in the early stages of a pregnancy so that by the time you’ve finished your first two trimesters, the hair will become finer and thinner, and fingers crossed your waxing will become more comfortable during your final trimester.
4TH MYTH: Waxing is bad for your skin.
Your skin might be sensitive, red or even a tad is swollen immediately after a wax; but none of these effects are long-term. In fact, waxing is often seen as better for the skin than other hair removal methods. It essentially acts as an exfoliant, getting rid of the top layer of dead skin, and can also reduce the chances of ingrown hairs and irritation post-shaving. However, it’s still essential to listen to the aftercare advice of your therapist in the hours following your wax to ensure no problems develop.
5TH MYTH: A bikini wax will be embarrassing.
Bikini lines are one of the most annoying areas to keep in good shape, but some people do not like the idea of letting a therapist near such an intimate area. The important thing to remember is that Regis beauty therapists do this day after day – and will likely have waxed several bikini lines before yours that day! If you are feeling uncomfortable, simply explain this to your therapist and they will be happy to alter their method to give you more modesty when you need it.
Have you ever heard about the Brazilian Wax?
Think of a Brazilian wax as a step beyond a bikini wax. While traditional bikini waxing removes only the hair in areas that wouldn't be covered by a bikini (closer to the thighs), a Brazilian wax removes the hair on every part of the pubic area (including toward the butt hole).
Waxing such a sensitive area can be uncomfortable, especially for first-timers. However, since waxing removes the hair from the root, it makes it grow softer and finer, resulting in each wax becoming less painful.
While some clients opt to remove every single strand, the term Brazilian covers everything from a “completely nude look” to one that leaves “a neat triangle, strip, or square on the front. Talk with your waxer about the exact style you want, make sure to be vocal and communicative here.
