The Wax-to-Income Ratio

I was introduced into the world of waxing at the early age of 14 when I realized how much my eyebrows resembled Bert from Sesame Street. I have my Filipina genes to thank for that. Once I saw the dramatic difference defined brows made, I was hooked. Eyebrows are indeed, the nipples of the face.

Over the years, my waxing needs expanded down south and I have always made sure my grooming game was on point, no matter how broke I was. 

A woman's willingness to spend on waxing is quite similar to calculating your Debt-to-Income Ratio (DTI). For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, DTI is a percentage of a consumer's monthly gross income that goes toward paying debts. This term is most commonly used when determining your financial situation, especially when making serious decisions such as applying for a loan. With that said, I have created a table below that demonstrates the large feats a woman goes through to get waxed:

Finding the right aesthetician is difficult, as the experience gets real personal. I've lived in the Bay Area for over 4 years, and despite the fact that I can afford a high-quality waxing, it's been hard to find one that truly gets my idiosyncrasies.
