A Guide to your First Bikini Wax

by - January 12, 2017

If you're reading this then its safe to assume that you are interested in trying the bikini wax but, at the same time want to be fully prepared and a few months ago, I was like you so I know exactly how you feel right now. Getting a bikini wax for the first time can be scary so I'll share some tips with you that'll make it less scary and a better experience.

Price: The price range is around  400 - Rs. 2500 depending upon the place and the type of wax they'll be using on you. 
I personally get it done for  400 with the normal honey wax. However, I have a high tolerance for pain and if you have a lower tolerance I'd suggest you try the Chocolate/Rica wax for your first time. 

Before you get an appointment

  • Look for a good place
You should look for a good place to get your bikini wax done from. I'd suggest you look at online ratings of the parlour/salon and ask your friends about the places they'd suggest. Make sure you go to a place that you can afford and ask if they're offering any discounts. If you're a student, ask for a student discount.
  • Research which kind of wax is better for you
There are several different waxes to choose from and it totally depends upon the type of skin you have, your level of pain tolerance, etc. Do as if your parlour uses the particular kind of wax and the charges for it. Rica and Chocolate wax is usually more expensive than the sugar/honey wax.

On the day of the appointment

  • Wear a clean cotton underwear
Try not to wear the sexy lacy thongs, satin underwear, etc. you are better off wearing the ugly (but clean) cotton granny-panties instead since they are more breathable and comfortable. You will want to feel comfortable during your first every bikini wax. 

  • Schedule it according to your cycle
You would want to schedule your first bikini wax around your mid cycle since your pubic area is more sensitive a few days before your period. 

  • Do not trim/shave your hair
It will be harder / more coarse if you trim your hair a few days before or on the day of your appointment and it will definitely hurt more. Just don't do it. 
  • Pop an over-the-counter pain killer
If you're one of the girls who hurts a lot getting her armpits waxed then, girl, you need to pop the OTC pain killer at least 20 minutes before your appointment. 

My Experience

My first experience of the dreaded bikini wax was rather good. I had been told a lot of horror stories from my friends which turned out to not be true. On a scale of 1-10, the pain was a 6 at the most and from my experience the pain lessens every time I get it done. Right now, its a 4 at the most for me. 

I hope that this post was helpful for you and I wish you all the best for your first bikini wax. Believe me, it is not as scary as they tell you.
