We know that all-too-familiar pain of getting that monthly wax. While you’re at the mercy of the (over) friendly neighbourhood parlour ‘aunty,’ it’s easy for your mind to drift from one thought to the other. Here are 6 things you’ve probably thought of during that dreaded trip to the salon.

#1 This is going to be painful

Ouch! It doesn’t matter how many times over you’ve gone through the routine; it doesn’t make it any less painful. So, as you watch that heating pot of wax with growing trepidation, you can’t help but cringe. Somehow, it’s just not easy to get your head around the idea of your hair being pulled out by piping hot wax on a strip, by a stranger no less.

“So much ingrowth—where did you get your last wax done?”
“Tch! Tch! Very dry skin! Go for chocolate wax!”
“Should I book you for a spa pedicure after this? Your feet look like they need it!”
Sounds familiar? Well, you’ve probably been visiting the local parlour too often then. While you’re at the edge of your seat with the idea of what lies ahead, judgemental comments about the state of your skin, hair and everything in between don’t help matters!

#3 Should I have just shaved instead?

It’s girl’s night out and you planned everything including that dress to the T. But now that you’re here, you wonder if it’s even worth the trouble. From now on, you’ll just make wiser clothing choices.

Yes, fries are the answer to everything in life. A plateful of your favourite crispy, curly fries seems like just what you need to numb the pain. So, a call to your favourite takeaway for a good dose of deep-fried goodness is in order.

How often has this been the occasion to curse all the men that you’ve known? Men got it easy because waxing is a pain like no man will ever know. You will hold on to this fact and use it as ammunition the next time you’re having an argument with your boyfriend!
