Whats the difference btw brazillian waxing n normal waxing. Anyone introduce me a place to do full body waxing for wearing bikini one?
Include price and location pls 8)
Will waxing cause my hairs to be thicker? Pain? :shock:

Wow questions questions...

Brazilian wax IS painful. I won't deny it. I'm lying if I say it's just an ant-bite.
First if you haven't had any form of waxing at all and the B-wax is your first wax job...*erm* good luck.

But if you've waxed underarms/legs before, then at least you roughly know how it feels like. The pain is intense but it will subside soon. You just need to hug a pillow (Strip provides one) really tightly if you're afraid of pain.
How high is your pain threshold? If you can tahan underarm, then B-wax is about 5 times higher. The most painful part is the very middle, above the clitoris. The rest is still bearable.

Ceres: B-wax specifically refers to the pubic hair. Full stop. No where else. B-wax does not mean bikini line. It means P.U.B.I.C. area. And they will wax all the way back to your asshole. In the end you feel damn clean.

2 of singapore's more famous Waxing shops:
1) Strip. (holland V, Wheelock)
slightly more expensive than Wax Affair, but waxing is less painful. Plus they apply nice smelling stuff after the wax to soothe the skin. Regrowth is slower than WA. But they take ages to wax. *damn*
2) Wax Affair (beside Subway in Holland V)
Cheaper than Strip, slightly more painful waxing. Very quick waxing. B-wax is done is 10 mins. The waxer dares to proclaim herself as the fastest waxer in town!

I"m too lazy to give the numbers so do a YellowPages check yeah? :D

FYI, constant B-waxing will not do much to hair thickness. It will even help close some pores so u won't have so much hair.

waxing is painful, period! however, no pain, no gain.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Screech.

Painful beyond belief, though it's over quickly. Embarrassing as they see EVERYTHING. You have to hold the skin taut so that it doesn't hurt even more.
Lovely afterwards and looks great but I gave it up for shaving. Have to do everyday but I couldn't face the waxing again, sorry.
