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.
BuzzFeed Life spoke with makeup artist and esthetician for Bliss Spa Leyda about all of her weird and wonderful tricks for making waxing less painful. Whether you're going to the salon or you're more of a DIY wax person, these tips will save you from all kinds of hurt. If you're doing your arm, start with an area the size of a large watch.
