I think winter time is the time for me to start this. How long (ballpark) does a waxing last? Would I be down to barely getting hairy legs by next March if I start doing this in let's say October? I just don't know if I can let them grow long enough to have it done. Hubby complains

Tell him to suck it up (that's what I did) It took me about a week, maybe a little longer to grow it out. She told me it would last 4-6 weeks, maybe longer.

depending on the texture of your hair and growth rate.. 4 weeks is about normal..
but the more you wax.. the less you have to in the long run..
Eventualy over a period of years the root will die and you are fur free..

Well I am going back for round two of leg waxing. Chris is right, it grows back baby fine! So I am going back today, to a different place that I hope will be much nicer.

WOW!!! How bazarre(SP) this thread reappeared. Just 2 days ago I had ny eyebrows done for the 1st time. Yes it took 30 years but I finally did it. I admit I was VERY nervous (wimp in the pain department) but it honestly was not bad. Maybe I will do the legs this winter.

Okay this time was much MUCH better than last time. The young woman who did the waxing was more...well, professional I guess, and FAST. Full leg wax took 30 minutes as opposed to over twice that at the other place. She was also very thorough, making sure to go over with a magnifier (the lit kind used for facial treatments) and tweezing any strays. Yay for smooth legs! I think next time I will buck up and go for the bikini also. Has anyone here ever had underarms done? How does the discomfort compare to legs (less, more, same)?

Underaarms are sensitive.. but it is real quick.. it is a bit tender at first.. but the root in the under arm area will weaken more quickly than the leg area will..
The hair is different.. not as tuff...
I haven't really shaved for years ...
I wax maybe twice a year now.. no more stubble.. no more hair to speak of..
Waxing is the way to go in my opinion..

Glad you found a great place to Go Tan..
it's worth it.. let me ask you did she charge you a bit more than the other place?

Waxing is definately the way to go. I've been having my legs done for a few years now. I can go about 4 weeks and then I need to get it done. Chris is right, it grows in less and less the more you do it.

Eyebrow are definately much better waxing. When I think of all the years I tweezed. OWWEEE! However, they do tend to grow in quicker than the legs or underarms. Also every 3 weeks I get them tinted along with my eyelashes.

Just started doing my underarms last spring. The first time was a little painful but not too bad. But it was so smooth! I loved not having to pull out that razor in the shower!! Actually, the hardest part was letting it grow out enough.
