Pit Stop - DIY Underarm Waxing

In the very early 1900’s, the word “underarm” was considered a taboo, as this would not have been a visible body part in polite social company at the time.  Enter The Roaring 20’s and the sleeveless dresses that came into style during this era, freeing women from the “covered to the wrist” concept of clothing.

Bare or Bush - what's your style?

There has been a lot of news about Cameron Diaz and Gwenyth Paltrow taking a stand on letting your bikini line grow "au naturel", so I thought I'd put a few cents worth in as well...

Wax Factor - easing the ouch

Having satin-smooth skin that lasts for weeks at a time is one of the major advantages of waxing, especially as bikini season approaches! We think waxing is a walk in the park compared to something like wearing heels all day! But for any nervous waxing virgins out there, let us put your mind at ease with some Parissa tips to reduce the ouch-factor!

So, you're an average dude, bombarded with images, whispers and mysterious words about manscaping - and to be honest you barely know what most of it means. Or, more importantly, what it means to you. Here’s Parissa’s Waxing Guru speaking the truth about fixing the furry forehead.

Armpit Nirvana

I have to admit I hate using the term Arm Pit, but it sounded better than "the-area-under-your-arm-where-super-dark-coarse-hair-grows nirvana".  It feels like time to speak out about the divinity of not having to touch fingertips to the ceiling and blade to skin on a daily basis, just so I can wear tanks, tee's or tubes. Yes, I have thick hair, in fact I've grown more since I started typing - but the fact is that most of us have thick *ahem* armpit hair and inevitably have to shave it regularly.

Here's my advice - STOP THAT!

DeMystifying Waxing

What is it about the topic of waxing that brings out rumours, myths and horror stories? We think it's time to get that big hairy monster out from under the bed and debunk a few follicular fallacies, so here's The Waxing Guru speaking the truth about your unwarranted waxing worries.

Waxing Myth: "If I start waxing, my hair will grow back darker and thicker"

You deserve low maintenance soft skin.

Most of us are familiar with the basics: shaving, cream depilitories or going to the salon to get your waxing done. But if you've ever read a woman's magazine, you've likely also heard about do-it-yourself body waxing kits. So, why aren't you trying them? Perhaps it's not understanding exactly how well they work, or maybe uncertainty about how to do it yourself. Let's face it, nobody wants to spend time and money on something that isn't going to turn out. Fair enough.
