The first time I went to get the bottom half of my legs waxed was the most embarrassing time ever.
I went with my aunt and after I left decided I never wanted to go to another wax salon ever. So my aunt decided to buy her own wax kit and ensured me it wouldn't be difficult to do and just to stay still.
So I laid down on the bed and lifted my arm up as she was going to do my under arms. So she applied the wax strip and counted to three and ripped it of at the count of 2.... She ripped half of it off and the other half was left there and stuck.
I was in so much pain while she was in stitches laughing over me. So she ended up ripping the other half off.
After that experience I have never got waxing done again.
I was about to go to a party and my friends were telling me they had gone for a Hollywood wax and that I should come along and get one. I didn't have enough time though you know what us girls are like getting ready!
So i went to my aunties house as she lives a couple doors down and owns her own wax machine and decided i was going to do it myself how hard could it really be right?
so i went into the backroom and in my mind i was thinking ok all i need to do is apply the hot wax, put a strip on top and pull? If only life was that simple!
So i applied the wax and put the strip on top and i was a bit scared of the pain so i pulled it off quite slowly and was making a mess with the wax it was literally everywhere.
I tried again but only this time with more speed but when i tried to pull it it just hurt and no hairs came off and the wax was still their i kept trying and trying but onli like 10 hairs came out i didn't understand why it wasn't working and i was to embarrassed to ask my auntie to do it for me.
i had 30mins till i had to leave for this party so i thought forget it im going to jump in the shower and scrub this wax off and get ready. BUT the wax wasn't coming off with water!!! i scrubbed and scrubbed even with one of them painful silved sponges but it just hurt.
I had 10 mins left so i had to just get out of the shower and go to the party with my underwear literally stuck to me! it was the most uncomfortable night of my life! Now i go to a professional to get it done and my therapist told me that you have to pull the strip the same way the hair is growing. LOL!
