First Time Waxing Appointments


To survive a Brazilian wax, you will need some hot tips from a seasoned pro to take on your journey to enlightenment. First thing to know: as you can imagine it isn’t particularly… fun. How bad does a Brazilian wax hurt? It’s definitely not great when it’s your first time. Eventually, you do get used to it, and some people even consider it less painful than leg waxing. Here are 7 first time Brazilian wax tips:

1. Grow Your Garden

This may sound counterintuitive but in order to get a good ol’ shiny vaginy, you need to grow it out until your hairs are about a grain of rice in length (¼ of an inch). It can be longer, too. The length is needed so the wax can grip the hairs. Whatever you do, do NOT shave before your appointment. We must surprise them when they’re least expecting it. And when they’ve thought they’ve won.

2. Scrub-A-Dub

In general, it’s probably a great idea to clean and exfoliate that area pretty regularly, but most definitely when you’re gonna have a technician all up in your business. I feel like we all kinda all knew that, yeah? Cool. A shower beforehand is preferred, but if you’re in the middle of your day, baby wipes can be your hero.

3. Parting the Red Sea

Growing up, my parents called periods “Fred” and that has plagued my mind for 14 years, so this knowledge is my gift to you, my friend. Fred sometimes came knocking a little early, so the real question I guess is can you mixy mixy with the period and the undercarriage wax? We strongly recommend waiting until after your time of the month to come in. Sometimes you have a thing and you gotta do what you gotta do, and our waxing specialists are skilled at avoiding tampon strings, but for sanitation and sensitivity purposes, rescheduling is probably best for everyone. If you have too many cooks in your kitchen, everyone’s gonna have a bad time—luckily, you can cancel your appointment up to 24 hours in advance.

4. Let Your Bits Breathe

Prepare for the warzone. Your bits are not gonna be happy for about a day—soreness and a little redness is normal. If you’re a masochist, feel free to wear tight pants and lacy panties, but for everyone else, grab your softest undies and some sweatpants because giving things some breathing room should really be your number one priority.

5. Warm Up Your Muscles

You are limber. You are strong. You can spread for that 25-minute rip sesh—we believe in you. Stretch everything you can and practice your best butterfly pose before going to your appointment. Car yoga is a thing… right? Warrior 5? Cross console bridge?

6. Just Breathe

Preparing to have all your cooch follicles kidnapped from their homes isn’t something anyone is really ever ready for, especially if it’s your first time. Once you’re spread eagle on the table, though, there isn’t much more you can do to prepare yourself other than to just take a deep breath and ask your local politicians for guidance through the next 24 hours. The best way to fight pain is to squeeze something so tight that it hurts, and I'm not talking about kegels—bring a stress ball for SURE. Relax. What doesn’t kill you makes you sexy, right? Or something like that.

7. Prepare for the Final Countdown

So you have the pain tolerance and emotional capacity of a small lemon, what do you do? Modern science gave us painkillers for a reason. But if you’re not a fan of my #1 homie ibuprofen, you may find yourself gravitating towards a shot of fermented potato juice to take the edge off—try to hold yourself back. Alcohol—and caffeine for that matter—make the process more painful and sometimes can even cause bleeding. If you're going to take a shot anyway (c’mon y’all), just do NOT mix it with painkillers.


Since we are dealing with sensitive bits here, it’s important to get a Brazilian wax done by grooming professionals with extensive experience down under. At The Boujee Bee Luxury Waxing Salon & Spa, our technicians can give you the best waxing experience for an affordable and accessible price. We offer several types of waxes to choose from so you can get everything done in one place! How long does a Brazilian wax last? You can expect to make a regular pilgrimage to get your fuzzies removed every 3-4 weeks. Talk to your doctor before coming in for waxing because bleeding can happen, and some medications do not mix with waxing.
