Bikini waxes.....for pre-teens?!?!
« on: October 9, 2008, 04:09 PM »
WTF?!

Waxing body hair — from the simple shaping of an eyebrow arch to the painful transformation of the bikini line — has long been a rite of passage for adult women. But now, more mothers around the U.S. are taking their tweens — kids 10 to 12 years old and some even younger — to salons to get body hair removed. 

“For waxing, 12 years old is the ‘new normal,’ ” Engle said.

The International Spa Association reports that 16 percent of teens who have visited a spa have had a hair removal procedure done, but the organization has no numbers for younger children because they aren’t allowed to survey them. Several salon owners around the country told TODAYshow.com that the number of kids 12 and under coming in for waxing services has increased dramatically over the past three years.

Surely this was a proposal from Barack Obama?   ???

I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a Brazilian Wax.

must be from all the crap/hormones in the food making preteens go into teens before they're supposed to.

This totally complicates things for those of us who use the phrase "if there's grass on the field, play ball" as a moral compass.  >:(

Look on the bright side...your sons (and daughters, possibly) won't have to deal with the "seventies bush".
