    Me and my friend are considering getting a brazilian wax and we just wanted to know how old you'd have to be to get one done at a salon because we're too scared yo did it ourselves. We're both 15 and we're turning 16 in a couple of months, I read somewhere that if you're 16 you have to get parental consent but the idea of asking my mum about that mortifies me!

    You should probably call a couple of local salons to see whether they want parental approval. If they do, you either have to tell your mum or go to another salon and tell them you're 16...

    Is it just me or is there something odd about a 15 year old wanting a brazillian wax? :erm:

    I don't know for sure, I'm sure the manager of the salon would make the decision if there's no law on it.
    But I doubt you'd get one under 16 seeing the only reason you'd want one is because you have some intention of having sex, and sex with under 16's is illegal.

    I doubt there's an actual law on it. But salons might have their own rules about a minimum age.

    Indeed.

    You shouldn't be having sex at that age and the main reason to have one done is to be tidy for your partner. Although I did trim at that age, but what was to make periods less messy . . .

    Me and my best friend went at 15 and no one asked for parental permission, I would never have guessed you might need it!

    Kids don't get to be kids these days.

    I was still messing around and having a laugh and goofing off with my friends at 15, not caring about having a perfectly hairless crotch. You have the rest of your life to worry about that kind of thing, I have no idea why teens want to grow up so quick...

    OK one reason for waxing is to be nice for a partner, but it's not the only one. Periods as you say are another. There's also liking the look or feel of it for yourself, and fitting in with certain kinds of clothing. For example, I was a keen athlete at school and ran in bikini-type racing briefs which pretty much require waxing due to the risk of stubble/razor burn with shaving. Others might be gymnasts or dancers who wear leotards, or swimmers.

    I'm not sure if there is an age limit, but it's a bit unfair on the beautician to ask her to wax an underage crotch. It would probably be quite uncomfortable for her. I wouldn't be willing to do it and I know a lot of my beautician friends would find it strange.

    The salon I use doesn't allow anyone under the age of 18 to get them so I'm unsure. Why do you want to get it waxed anyway? If you're too embarrassed to talk to your mother about pubic hair then you aren't old enough in my opinion. If you also can't understand the concept of ringing a local salon to ask or find that too embarrassing then you also aren't old enough.

    I don't know, something about it seems uncomfortable. If you want to remove your pubic hair just shave until you're 18. I can't see a reason why you would want waxed genitals at 15.

    Excuse you, rude much? I have no intention of having sex, I just wanted to know how old you had to be because I was considering doing it AFTER I turned 16. I don't appreciate you jumping to conclusions when you know nothing about me, okay?

    No idea.

    It's a little unsettling that you'd want to get a brazillian wax at 15/16 though.

    I started getting it done in a salon when I was 17, but nobody ever asked how old I was so I don't think there are specific laws on it or anything. I would imagine it's just up to the individual salon's discretion. Your best bet would just be to ring and ask.
