New Jersey’s Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling is contemplating a recent proposal to ban genital waxing in the state. If this proposal is passed, salons and spas will no longer offer the painful Brazilian wax to customers. Also known as summer waxes custom bikini, which can cost anything between $50 to $60 per session, women ask for these genital waxes so that they can flaunt their revealing bikinis in summer.

Highlights of the proposal
a. This proposal was put forward after two women complained to the Board that they were injured and hospitalized after the procedure.
b. One of them sued the clinic.
c. However, 2 South Jersey hospitals and a few dermatologists refused to comment on the issue.
d. According to one dermatologist, genital waxing irritates or tears the skin which results in infections.
e. Apparently, genital waxing has always been illegal in New Jersey but there are no statutes that spell this out.
f. The Board of Cosmetology will next meet on April 14, 2009.
