How was your weekend? Mine? Extremely relaxing. I have been hanging out on the couch for pretty much the whole weekend preferring the fireplace to the cold and rain that currently holds a firm grip over the Low Countries.
I just came out of the shower, and I’m snug behind my computer with my favourite hole ridden John Varvatos sweater (classic menswear) and my ripped jeans that slowly begins to give up its ghost.
It was a quick shower this time, and I’m impressed with the results. The results?….yes, I had a wax the other day. There has to be a first time for everything and thus I decided to give waxing a try given that a new salon has popped up in Haarlem….Smoooth, on Wilhelminastraat 25 in Haarlem.
When you give things a try you have to really give things a try, so I decided for legs and Brazilian…yes the intimate (if not ultimate) wax job that was all the rage back in the SATC heydays but for some reason escaped me. Don’t get me wrong here, I am familiar with razors, but it can be a hassle if not the occasional disaster.
Jacomien made me feel very comfortable, starting with my legs. As I couldn’t shave for a week prior to the treatment, my pins had seen better days undoubtedly. Did it hurt? No, not at all and afterwards my legs looked indeed incredibly smooth.
We moved on to the more intimate parts. I am rarely embarrassed (comes with age I suppose). Needless to say I looked pretty hairy down under too (if not the wax won’t work). But the wax job went really well and near painless I would say. The result is even more compelling. In fact 3 days onwards and not a single hair on the horizon. The result is to last for 3-4 weeks….well I am sold. Saves a lot of time in the shower, not to mention an ultra smooth experience :).
