Comp Beauty Prep – Stage 1: Hair Removal

20 Oct

Okay, so when I step on stage next year I have to be hair free.  Every little hair shows up under those harsh stage lights and in the all important official comp photos too!  Hence, I have a dilemma… I’m really hairy.  It’s all blonde hairs though!  But yeah, let’s just say I’m covered in a fine blonde fuzz.

I have heard that after your first couple of waxes the pain is less intense and also the hairs grow back finer.  This appeals to my interests greatly.  So I decided to give arm waxing ago.  By myself.  Oh, hell no, I’m not paying for someone to wax me when I can do that shit myself!  Yes – cheap skate.  Have mentioned this before.  You should not be surprised.

Why not shave or use hair removal creams, you may ask?  Well, because after applying copious amounts of tan it tends to stick to the stubble (especially around the *cough* groin) and that can leave you looking like a spotted freak.   I’m not really looking for that look.  So not hot right now.

So, I bought the wax strips and set about waxing my arms.

And I filmed it.

And here is that footage.

Enjoy!

WARNING: Extreme language ahead! (Come on now, it’s me here…)

Note: Yes, I came *thisclose* to smacking myself in the face on the first rip.

Note 2: Don’t ask me why I ended this video like a phone call.  I was delirious.

Note 3: On my other arm I placed the strip around my arm rather than lengthways up my arm.  Much easier to go in the opposite direction of the arm hair this way.  Noob.
