Lisette is one on my favorite ladies, and stylists of all time. I invited her to do a series of guest posts for those of you who may be interested in getting a boudoir portrait.
Wax. Thread. Pluck. Shape. Do this around four days prior to give your skin a chance to calm down again. Everyone has their own preference for hair removal. I'm in the hard-wax camp for bikinis and Brazilians (this method minimizes skin rippage) but don't try a new method before your shoot. Give yourself a practice run in advance and be sure to moisturize and coddle your skin afterward!
And if you are not into hair removal? Then remember to treat the hair on your body like the hair on your head. Condition and trim everything.
