Most Merciful Bikini Waxer
"Dee Dee Heidarian at Dee Dee's Skin Care on Van
Nuys Boulevard in L.A. She's as gentle as they come."

The first question a lot of people may have about bikini waxes is exactly
what they are.
A bikini wax is when a licensed cosmetician, like Dee Dee Heidarian,
owner of Dee Dee’s Skin and Body Care, applies hot wax to your pubic hair
with a spatula-like instrument,
leaves it on for a little while and then pulls it off really quickly.
Voilá! According to Heidarian, this popular cosmetic procedure removes
unsightly hair poking out of the sides of your bikini (hence the nifty name
“bikini wax”) without leaving the weird red bumps left after shaving.
With a bikini wax, hair grows in much more slowly.
“Bikini waxing is much better than shaving. People get irritated with
shaving. Bikini waxing makes the hair grow slower,” Heidarian said.
Heidarian does waxing for both men and women with the exception of bikini
line waxing for men. However she does all other forms of waxing for men clientele
such as back, brows, arms, etc.
The most popular bikini wax for women is the “playboy wax”, followed
by a regular wax and a full wax.
“A playboy wax is when you get most of the hair removed and leave one strip
in between; we get lots of requests for that,” Heidarian said.
“A full bikini is when you remove all of the hair off.”
If done right, bikini waxes shouldn’t hurt. And if you’re into that type
of thing, Heidarian can wax shapes into your pubic hair, like hearts,
diamonds or even words”
