So, I have to admit, I haven't shaved my legs in about 3 months..... LOL I know, I know that's horrible. But I had grizzly legs and did not care. It was winter time anyways, I always wear pants. I've never waxed before so I thought why not do it in Korea, new experience so why not.
Waxing is big in North america, so of course it would be big here. But, it took me a good hour to find a place that waxed, all the stores I went to directed me to another store... Very annoying. I walked around to the other side of town to go look at shoes and just as I was giving up and going to walk back home, I passed a store called Nail St 93, that was just opening and decided to ask if they wax.
They did! I was so happy, but I had to come back in 4 hours for 5 pm, which was great. I was going out tonight to celebrate a co-workers birthday so I could go home, do makeup then go and wax. Which is exactly what I did.
So when I came back to the nail salon the girl took me up to the second floor which overlooks the store. It was very nice and fancy looking. I'll have to go back there to get my nails done. Anyways, this was my first time waxing so I wasn't sure what to expect. But after I got undressed and got on the table I was so nervous. She started putting the wax on I started thinking about what the pain would feel like.
OUCHHHHHH! I think that was worse than tattoo or piercings pain because i'm used to those. The whole time I was thinking why the hell am I doing this, I can't believe girls do this all the time. The worst part was the back of my thighs and inner thighs! I wanted to cry it hurt so bad. It took an hour to wax both legs, by the time she was done my legs were actually red and in pain.
The funny thing is i'll probably do it again because I hate shaving and the razor bumps and this will last longer. My legs also feel soooo smooth! She did a very thorough job as well. But it was quite pricey, I paid 90,000 won ($90). Back home i've seen some places about $45 a leg but I was hoping it would be cheaper here. But that's okay i'm satisfied! Hooray no shaving for 3 weeks!
