that one day when i waxed seriously.

believe it or not, i've been told i don't write enough blog posts.

i have fans people. like...very popular.

or not so much. anyway...

as i was pondering what i could POSSIBLY blog about i was stumped.

i don't cook. i don't garden. i don't craft...what's a girl to do?

and then i thought...i am pretty crazy. why not blog about that one time i waxed myself?

i'm not going to tell you too many details. nor am i going to share any pictures.

you're welcome.

but please know that there are a few rules you should abide by:

1. for the love of god please ensure the wax is just the right temperature. nobody likes second degree burns on their who-ha.

2. pre-cut your strips of fabric. there is nothing more unsightly than having your wax applied, one leg propped on the counter and a crazy pair of scissors waxed to your hand.

3. apply the wax in the direction of the hair. enough said.

4. quicker is better. once the wax is applied, get that strip of fabric on there and give it three firm rubs to ensure you have good connection. then...with no hesitation and a good it off in one smooth action. do not pause halfway through.

5. watch a single tear drip down your cheek to the countertop below.

5. have no expectations. if you're picturing yourself looking like you've just left a professional...think again. you'll start with a rough draft, revise two or three times and you'll still finish disappointed, sweaty, and bruised. seriously...i bruised.

6. go to a professional. i've already made my appointment in le big city.


  1. Thanks for sharing. I too tried myself and it didn't work out so well. I think it's best left to the professionals!

  2. I have always been scared to wax myself so thanks for the tips!

  3. I am one of the ones thinking "I wish she blogged more!" This is hilarious, I would never dare try on my own, definitely used a professional the few times I had it done!

  4. I tried this one time and it was the worst experience ever. Halfway through I decided I would have to stop and just have one half fuzz free and one half gob of wax because I was NOT pulling that puppy off. Definitely cried. Still havent been brave enough to go to a professional yet...haha

  5. Ha Ha- Good tips for sure!

  6. Ahhh, ouch! Love this post, thanks for mixing it up :)

  7. Ouch! I do my eyebrows myself but I leave the rest to the professionals.

  8. Haha, I'm sorry but I was rollin' over laughing picturing you standing with one leg propped up on the counter and having scissors stuck to your hands! I thought that kind of thing only happened to me!
