As an intimate wax specialist I’ve heard tons of crazy Brazilian wax stories from other professionals. I’m always left wondering...what about the client?! Trust me those stories go both ways. I came into the beauty industry through my journey as a consumer so I, unfortunately, have stories of my own.
Oh, the things I’ve gone through for a decent to good - but never really GREAT - Brazilian wax! I’ve traveled behind the not so private curtains of noisy nail shops packed with unsuspecting customers and the aroma of acrylic powder and nail glue. I’ve been greeted by dirty wax stations and techs with questionable sanitation practices and license status that gave me patchy services (literally). I’ve even had my hoo ha burned and practically ripped apart by inexperienced licensed technicians in higher end salons - you know those places that offer the full rainbow of services but don’t really specialize in anything. Hello!? There is a reason that Doctors, Lawyers, and other licensed professionals choose a specialty in their field! And do you KNOW what happens when someone uses a poor quality hard wax filled with plastic fillers and other petrochemicals on your nether regions? I do! Instead of it coming off in one pull and quickly removing the hair from the root, the wax breaks apart. Then what?! Well, you have no choice but to lie there as they chip the remaining wax off...bit...by...bit...while you hope and pray that nothing important gets snatched off. And let’s not even mention the damaged skin and ingrown hair issues left behind from improper waxing technique.
BUT, I’m a sucker for punishment and smooth lady parts so I continued my search for the perfect Esthetician to perform my Brazilian wax services. After SE-VER-AL years I finally found the one! Her name was Maria and she was the Brazilian wax expert that showed me the light. And by “light,” I mean she introduced me to the way things SHOULD be. I followed Maria around to 3 locations, and a brief moment at her in-home treatment room. But I eventually gave up on commuting up North from the south side of Chicago. I mean, I love the north side and all, but I honestly hated driving 45+ minutes through downtown traffic AND THEN driving around for ANOTHER 15 minutes to find parking. Yikes!
