Getting Bridal Bare

Madeleine is back with answers to some hairy questions some of you had about keeping your "garden" and the rest of the property well maintained....

I've never been waxed & I think I want to get everything waxed before the wedding?
I always caution aganst trying anything new right before your big day- since you & your skin are already stressed & you don't know how your skin may react.. I recommend scheduling a trial waxing about 6-8 weeks prior to the waxing you'd want right before your wedding to make sure your skin isn't irritated. That way you can plan accordingly to be bump & hair free for your perfect day.

How long does my hair need to be?
I promise that your esthetician wouldn't whip out a ruler & measure your hair length! However if your hair is too short you are wasting both your & your esthetician's time. What's important to remember is that the hair needs to have enough length for the wax to be able to grip onto & pull it out. So when it doubt- try to wait it out! Also if if you tend to shave, the follicle is coarser & more difficult to remove- so make sure you have at least 2 weeks of hair growth for your technician. Though it does require some patience- being completely smooth for the big day & your honeymoon is the reward!

Thanks Madeleine, as always for your sage advice and beauty expertise...looking forward to more answers to the time old beauty questions, and if you have any beauty questions or problems you want Madeleine to address, leave a comment or shoot me an email at!
