Stay Hairy, Stay Healthy

Have you heard about that law that New Jersey wants to pass? The State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling is considering banning bikini wax after two women got hospitalized for infections.
In theory, the Brazilian wax or bare-it-all wax has never been allowed. Only neck, abdomen, legs and arms are permitted. But, bikini wax generates a lot of money with a procedure going from $50 to $60 and millions of American women -and men- get bikini waxed. Beauty salons are,therefore, not willing to see their revenue fade away.
What may cause an infection is the hot wax that can irritate or tear the delicate skin in that area and result in infection and in-grown hairs and rashes. But, banning Brazilian wax would only encourage people to cross the state border and get the procedure in another state. Regular bikini wax would still be permitted though.
