The 5 Phases Of Getting A Bikini Wax

If beauty is pain, then getting a bikini wax wins the pageant. Give it the glittery tiara and the sash — because that thing straight-up hurts. No matter how much hair you elect to take away from your crotch (or how many Ibuprofens you pop), you can expect to wince and make a series of guttural noises.

Plus, it's awkward. You're basically having a stranger interact with your lady bits. And are we all just gonna pretend the names of the styles on the menu aren't weird? I'm looking at you, landing strip.

In this short video, we explore the inner thoughts and feelings you may have while getting a wax. Just remember that if you're gonna get it done, do it for yourself.
