Media Release: Scottish women don’t dare to bare

THE thought of waxing a delicate bikini area has many women reaching for the pain-killers; however, few ladies realise that de-fuzzing the delicate bikini area can be less eye-watering than removing a sticking-plaster!

Says a spokesperson: “According to specialist lingerie and beauty emporium, Odyssey Boutique, maintaining a regular waxing routine, rather than shaving or using DIY-at-home wax kits, ensures a slower, finer re-growth and smoother finish for longer.”

Sarah Connelly, director, Odyssey Boutique, said: “Most women only wax as part of pre-holiday preparations, preferring to use home treatments like shaving.

“We use Australian Lycon Hot Wax with an essential-oil pre-wax product that creates a fine protective film across the area.

“Strawberry or chocolate scented hot wax is then applied in layers, the wax shrink wraps around the hair as short as 1mm and doesn’t stick to the skin so there’s no painful sting.

“The hair is removed directly from the root so there is no hair breakage, in-grown hairs, bruising or redness. Essentially, clients can go directly from our beauty room to the boudoir or beach.”

Responding to clients blighted with bikini blemishes, Odyssey Boutique has recently introduced ‘Easily Extracted’ a unique extraction service offering a solution to painful in-grown hairs.

Home treatments often result in nicks, cuts and painful in-grown hairs as the hair is snapped or cut at different angles.

Promising immediate results, problem areas are scrubbed and steamed before the therapist releases trapped hairs and finishes with an application of bump-busting, skin-soothing solution to unblock pores and prevent future in-grown’s.

Odyssey Boutique opened in Edinburgh’s West End in 2010 to offer women everything they needed to look good, naked.

The boutique offers great-fitting beautiful lingerie from Mimi Holliday, Pleasure State and Simone Perele, year-round swimwear and a capsule collection of specialist beauty treatments including; waxing, lash extensions, Shellac manicures and pedicures and Fake Bake spray tanning.
