With over seven years of experience, Megan Hodge is an elite waxer and specialized skin consultant. Just like the importance of hiring a size-friendly care provider , you want to work with an experienced waxer or esthetician not a nail tech who has worked with larger bodies. As body positive influencer CeCe Olisa shares, having a waxer who makes you feel comfortable is so important when getting a plus size Brazilian wax! Along with asking your friends, Groupon is a great place to start when trying to find a skilled waxer. Be sure to look at ratings via Yelp and Groupon if you go that route to make sure there are positive reviews. Have a consultation before being waxed.

So you've booked your first bikini wax. Now you're probably wondering what happens next. Waxing the bikini area is much better than shaving it. Put down your razor! You'll be ushered into a private room and left alone to remove everything from the waist down.
Bikini waxing is the removal of pubic hair using a special wax, which can be hot or cold, that adheres to hairs and pulls them out when the wax is removed quickly from the skin, usually with a cloth strip. While the practice is mainly associated with women, male waxing is sometimes done to remove men's pubic hair. A bikini line is the area of the upper leg and inner thigh in which pubic hair grows that is normally not covered by the bottom part of a swimsuit. Pubic hair can be removed in a number of ways, such as waxing , shaving , sugaring , electrolysis , laser hair removal or with chemical depilatory creams.
