Vajacials, Vajazzles and Vatoos – Where does it stop?

The revolution of bikini waxing has produced a whole new language describing things I had never contemplated doing to my lady parts.

A ‘vajacial’ is the newest and is set to hit the UK in late January, when brazilian specialist salon Ministry of Waxing will put the treatment on their menu.

It’s basically a facial, for your brazilian.

It’s the newest treatment in a long line of frankly bizarre ways to make your bikini area more ‘glamorous.’

You can get your hair shaped, coloured and if you haven’t got anything left there you can even get diamante studs.  According to Marie-Louise and Danielle Featherstone, the sisters who set up Strip waxing bar,

“Some women who are starting to go grey like to dye their bushes back. And, for special occasions, some might dye their landing strip red and put diamanté gems either side to make it really glamorous.”

I’m not really sure what occasion requires red pubic hair, but maybe I’m just out of touch.

Waxing seems to have become a normal, accepted way of life for modern women.  The testimonial page on the website for Strip salon gives recommendations from people such as Sienna Miller, Victoria Beckham and Jo Wiley.

Personally, I don’t really see the attraction.  And is it just me, or is the idea of making yourself look simultaneously like a porn star and like a prepubescent girl really not that desirable?

Tell me what you think:
