Default I have a hairy back. How much should a "professional" waxing job cost?

Anyway, title says it all. I have been genetically cursed with bear-like genes, and I have a hairy back. I have used one of the roto-tiller things before on my back, but it hurts so bad that I cried.

I just want to get it done by a "pro" before the summertime. How much does that kind of thing usually run at a salon? Help!!!!!!!!!!!

Try calling a salon for a price quote.

I would gestimate in the area of $50-80, and it will probably take close to an hour.

The price is dependant on the place and what they use.

If you have decent cash, check out laser removal.

Why not get a good friend to help? I shaved my friend's back the other day (no, none of us are gay, but I am trying to convert him to metrosexuality).

LOL, yeah I have had friends help before, but I feel horrible about having them do it. It's friggin' gross work.

I would also do laser but I have no cashola right now... stupid genes!!!!
