What It's Like to Wax Your Armpits

That's not NO hair....

That's not NO hair....

The idea of waxing my armpits gives me the willies. 

Precisely why I decided to do it. 

Luckily, I'd spent weeks growing out my armpit hair for a beach vacation. I know what you're thinking: hey, isn't that the opposite of what most people do? 

Why yes! Of course! But I am not most people, and wanted to know what it was like to go to Mexico, sans razor. As it turns out, no one noticed. Kind of anti-climactic. Since I'd taken the time to grow out this hair, I decided to try a more long-term hair removal solution: waxing. Namely because it scared me.

Not sure I'll be an armpit waxing convert, but this experience was 100 percent worth it just for the excellent screams/laughter. Hopefully this video brightens your day. 

Thanks to my friend Dusti for filming this quick yet torturous experience; thanks to Sandra for the hair removal. Enjoy!
