NJ to ban bare-it-all "Brazilian" waxing


The Associated Press reports:

New Jersey is drawing a line when it comes to bikini waxing.

The state Cosmetology and Hairstyling Board is moving toward a ban on genital waxing altogether after two women reported being injured. Both women were hospitalized for infections following so-called “Brazilian” waxes.

Technically, genital waxing has never been allowed -- only the face, neck, abdomen, legs and arms are permitted. But because it wasn’t specifically banned, state regulators haven’t enforced the law.

The board will decide on April 14 whether to adopt explicit language banning genital waxing. The earliest the ban would take effect would be sometime in May. Salons that continue to perform the bare-it-all “Brazilian” could face fines.
