Have You Heard Of The “Hollywood”?

I was reading Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones’ latest crazy rant (today the subject is unwanted body hair) and it was just as bats**t and entertaining as usual, until I came across the following description in regards to a cousin of the Brazilian bikini wax:

“Then there is its more extreme stablemate the Hollywood, which takes away everything, leaving the bearer distastefully childlike. My waxing specialist in London now does ‘seven or eight Hollywoods a day’ – a 70 per cent increase on this time last year. Completely Bare, the American chain of spas dedicated to hair removal, has seen requests for a Hollywood quadruple in the past 12 months.”

How did I miss out on this terminology? Was I absent that day during beauty school? Now don’t get me wrong. I understand that some women are going completely bald down there, but I had no idea just how many of them were and that it was even called that. And I’ve even visited Completely Bare, the spa Jones is referring to (though not for that). What I need to know immediately is this: Are you getting this (presumably extremely painful) procedure done? And did you know it was called a “Hollywood”? Oh and dudes, are you like, into this or find it totally disturbing? [The Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Sherri Shepherd Loses Her Bikini Wax Virginity

Brave, brave Sheri Shepherd shows us how hilarious a bikini wax can truly be. Not only do you feel her pain, but you feel so wrong for laughing at it. First of all, I’m surprised she was not told in advance, or even worse that she didn’t ask what kind of wax she was getting. It only adds to the tragic situation. I’d say it’s a nice break from the sporadic morning cat fights on “The View.” Cringe, laugh, cry, and enjoy. Keep reading »

Working Girl: How To Stay Sexy At The Office

Unless you are lucky enough to work at The Frisky, chances are, you have to tone down the fashion factor for your work wardrobe. Sadly corporate culture condemns otherwise stylish girls to hide their individual look and makes them and conform to Dr. Evil-esque suits. What is an adventuress girl stuck in a boring suit to do? Well…what your boss doesn’t see won’t hurt her. Here are a few ways to keep your fabulous fashionista under wraps until 5p.m. Keep reading »

New Jersey Might Outlaw Brazilians

If you live in Jersey and want to get a Brazilian wax in preparation for bikini weather (or a big date), you might soon have to travel to another state to get your hair down there removed. If a proposal is passed by the New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling, genital waxing would become explicitly illegal there. Currently, statutes allow for waxing of the face, neck, arms, legs, and abdomen, and officials say that genital waxing has therefore always been illegal but wasn’t spelled out. If full bikini waxes get banned, we suspect the mob will set up a black market for women who insist on going bare. Too bad Tony Soprano isn’t around anymore, because he would take care of the situation — we can’t imagine him standing for Carmela or Gloria going around ungroomed. [Philly.com] Keep reading »

It includes: a wax, followed by a 24k gold spray and Swarovski crystal decorations (you can either get a heart of your significant other’s initials). Oh, and if you’re single but don’t want to miss out on the waxing fun, you can get a broken heart or a skull and crossbones instead. [Couture In The City] Keep reading »

    Weird Guy Trend: Total Manscaping

    After yesterday’s “Men’s Summer Fashion Trends We Hate” slideshow, I was reading Us Weekly and came across one I didn’t even know about. “I wax my privates,” says Sean “Diddy” Combs. As in BALD. Beyonce’s beloved, Jay-Z, also goes for the hairless look. A representative for the Pink Cheeks Salon in L.A. says, “Sexually, you can’t beat it.” Yikes, really? I’ve heard of guys trimming their area significantly because it makes their weens look bigger, but I don’t think I could handle a totally hairless groin. It’s too gay porn star for my taste. What do you ladies think — guys going bald below the belt, yay or nay? Keep reading »

    Poll: How Are Your Hedges Trimmed?

    I have never had a bikini wax. Something about it scares me. The only people I allow near my vagina is the boyfriend and my gyno and unless one of them decides on a second career, I probably will never have one. Or so I have always thought. Lately I have been considering giving the ol’ wax a try, if I can muster up the patience and itch-resistance to grow out what hair my pathetic attempts at shaving have removed. But before I do so, I am curious: how are your pubes maintained? Keep reading »
