Um, so I've decided I want to try brazillian waxing. But for various reasons, I'm pretty scared about trying it. I don't want to go and be humiliated if the waxing lady mentions something about the darker skin color where my thighs touch or my hair texture or something, or worse, is wondering why I bother. I have a bit of a tummy apron and I'm wondering if it's even possible for me to be waxed, given the skin issues and all that?
So, i guess my questions are as follows:
- how does one go about finding a fat-friendly waxer/aesthecian? (previous experience with underarm waxer was not pleasant -- I think she was grossed out by me) I don't want to be a burden/problem for the aesthecian any more than I want to be embarassed by her.
- Is there a polite way to ask when calling/inquiring if the aesthecian has experience working with plus size women?
- if I am unable to find one, is it possible to do at-home waxing? there is the issue of not being able to see everything, and having areas touch that wouldn't necessarily do so on a thin person.
Basically, there's a salon I like for manis/pedis near my house, but it's right next to a gym and everyone that works there is thin and I've pretty much worked myself into a panic about even asking them if they have experience working with someone who isn't thin. The only other salon I've ever had experience with is very shi-shi and I just know
the girls there would be mean.
