    First time wax!

    Hey! Don't worry about having your legs waxed, after the first few strips being removed you get used to it! It's slightly painful, I won't lie, but no pain no gain! You really should wait 48 hours before exposing the waxed area to the sun, as the area will be sensitive and the follicles are...

    Complaint about new therapist

    Hi! It sounds to me like your new therapist may not be as confident as others? Is this her first job as a Beauty Therapist? If so then I would say that she may be feeling slightly nervous and maybe she's making a few mistakes as a result (leaving residue of wax, not removing all hair growth)...

    Take your darn underwear off!!!

    In that case I would suggest that they leave their thong on, if you feel comfortable doing that? Once they are there in your presence and they see how professional you are, then they will feel more at ease and you can talk them through it face to face. It's not like you've not seen anything like...

If it were me, I would explain the treatment thoroughly and that you get a lot better results if you do not wear any underwear. How else do they expect you to...
