In my stupid high school years, which was longer ago than I would like to admit, I foolishly thought that I could handle doing leg waxing on myself.

They sold the kits at the stores and I was a pretty bright kid, so it should have been a no brainer. Boy, was I wrong. It started out ok, but once I got deeper into the self leg waxing I was screaming in pain and ended up with half of a waxed leg and a whole bunch of pain. Phone calls were made to those that said I should be able to do it with no problem, and they all laughed and said that they wouldn’t be trying it for themselves. It was from that moment that I decided to leave the leg waxing up to professionals.

Leg waxing in salons is fairly inexpensive. To a high school or college aged girl it seems like it is one million dollars, but really if you beak it down it is most likely less expensive to get leg waxing done than it is to purchase insanely expensive razors every few weeks.

Pricing depends on the type of spa or salon and your area, but keep in mind that leg waxing does last up to six weeks and the more you get it done, the finer your hair will grow back in and the less often you will need to have it done. So while the initial cost does seem a little high, you may end up saving money. Not to mention, the pain you will spare yourself is beyond priceless!

Professional leg waxing is usually done by hot wax being brushed or spread onto your leg. The professional will then press down a sheet and ripping it off quickly. The first few times hurt like hell, but once you get past the initial pain it really is not that bad.

If you want to get really adventurous you can move from leg waxing on to bikini waxing. That skin is much more sensitive, so the pain factor is higher. Once you have mastered the bikini waxing, you can move on to the oh so trendy Brazilian wax which will leave you completely hairless in your nether regions – and you can bet it will hurt. If you really want to be like Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, the less painful way would be to go out and buy a dog or designer cell phone.

If it were me, I’d skip the Brazilian wax, even if it is done by a professional.
