Getting any part of your body waxed is an intimate process. It’s one that requires trust between two people, and one of those people is going to get all up in your business and get to know you on a whole new level. Your waxer is like a BFF, except they only deal with your hairy side. Or maybe it’s hairy sides, if you’re the kind of woman I am. The point is: your waxer is about to get personal with you. Why not spark some conversation and get personal too? Here’s a list of perfect topics to get your wax-only BFF’s thoughts while they’re peacefully ripping hundreds of tiny hair follicles from your skin.
Ask Them About Their Ideal Waxing Destination
Is it Hawaii? The Tower of London? Perhaps your waxer has lofty dreams of waxing by the Pyramids. It’s up to you to inspire your waxer’s goals, and that includes destination waxes. “Get your legs waxed at the Coliseum” has a nice ring to it. Besides, you might find yourself on a summer vacation with your waxer, and that’s just convenient.
Ask Them What Famous Person They’d Like to Wax
This is a surefire way to get on your waxer’s good side. Of course they want to discuss the potentially hairy or not hairy parts of Brad Pitt’s groin. Maybe they’d rather wax Helen Mirren’s bush, who knows? You’ll never find out until you ask.
Ask Them What Their Favorite Waxing Snack Is
The best tasks in life are accompanied by snacks, and of course your expert BFF waxer knows this. Surely they have some salty pretzels, buffalo peanuts, or jalapeno poppers just before every wax session. Better yet, bring your waxer a savory snack the next time you have an appointment. Dusty fingers are their favorite.
Ask Them if They Would Wax the Sasquatch
We’ve all spent Saturday morning brunch wondering whether or not a Sasquatch gets a wax, right? Is the Sasquatch a Brazilian kind of creature, or would they wax their whole body? For that matter, maybe you should ask your waxer if they are the Sasquatch, perfectly waxed.
Ask Them if They’ve Ever Used a Razor
It’s a rumor, if not a fact, that the razor is the waxer’s mortal enemy. Better find out if your waxer has ever touched one of the cursed blades of evil. Verify by asking them about their favorite place to get waxed themselves. And if they say they use a razor, find out what brand it was, because your waxer only breaks the rules for good reason.
Ask Them What Their Favorite Time of Day to Wax Is
Does your waxer prefer to wax in the morning, or are they a night owl? Your waxer could be at their most powerful during a full moon, when they wander throughout the night hunting werewolves to wax for practice. Or perhaps they wax best when the sun is rising over the sea. Whatever their answer, you should schedule your next appointment during that time, because after this conversation it’s going to be hard to book another visit. -CH
