    I really want to get my legs waxed, but how much does it hurt? also, do they do the top part of your legs? because I have Stretch marks on the top of my legs, which I’m really embarrassed about, and I don’t/wouldn’t like to show them to anyone

    At a salon it doesn't hurt really at all as it's hot wax. The therapists have seen it all before so I wouldn't worry about stretch marks. I have some and I have my legs waxed properly and I've never even thought about them. The therapist usually makes you feel very relaxed and comfy and they are very discreet..they fold towels over you and stuff so theres no exposure thats unneccesery.

    Hope this helps a bit

    It doesn't hurt at all. Not to say you can't feel anything, but it certainly isn't particularly painful. People always make it out to be so much worse than it is.
    And don't worry about stretch marks...there are more people than you can imagine who have them (me included) so it's nothing to be ashamed of

    Good Luck with it!

    Legs arent really painful, not in the horrid extreme pain kind of way, but other areas can be....
    its worth it, because you start seeing thinness of hairs pretty quickly....
