Truth is, getting your first bikini isn’t going to be a whole lot of fun for you. However, considering the increasing number of women opting for wax by the day, I’m pretty sure no one would be willing to step into that new territory if it didn’t have its benefits.

Waxing gives you a smoother skin over a long period without the itchy feeling due to slower regrowth.

What's It Like Getting A Bikini Wax?
As a newbie to bikini waxing, you must have heard a lot of scary stories and are probably wondering what it’s like. Well, for me I think the build up was the worst, as I didn’t know what to expect or what it was going to be like - this not knowing was the worst part of my waxing experience the first time. As soon as the job was done, I found out it wasn’t as bad as I had thought it was going to be.
I’m Embarrassed Stripping Off, Any Advice?
I admit, the thought of lying naked on the table while having a total stranger all up in your leggy business feels a bit awkward, but the reality is that there really is no need for you to be nervous or embarrassed. If it makes you feel any better, they are professionals and just like your gynecologist, they have literally seen so many “va jay jays.” They don’t care, they are only interested in getting the job done.
Will It Hurt?
There’s a whole lot of stories accompanying bikini waxing, especially about the pain. Well, as much as I hate to tell you this, waxing is uncomfortable, especially the first time. The good news is it gets easier! If you wax regularly, the less uncomfortable the experience becomes.
There you have it, ladies. Remember, don’t be afraid to speak up. Tell the waxer which style you would like and how little or how much hair you want taken off.
