How does having bits of fox fur stuck all over your pubic area sound? Or what about feathers instead? Well now, regardless of your preferred dead animal, you can have your very own festive temporary merkin. Cindy Barshop, the woman behind both "vajewels" and "vatoos," is now offering services called "Foxy Bikini" and "Carnivale Bikini" at her chain of Completely Bare spas. We won't force you to look at the results, but if you're curious, check out the pretty-much-NSFW photos after the jump.
Nothing says you care more than saying, "Sis, since you're not just family but also a friend, I've given you a DIY vajazzling kit." That's right; from Completely Bare, the same folks that brought bejeweled bikini line treatments and custom airbrush bikini line tattoos to the masses, comes the Vajazzle All the Way Kit ($75). This Swarovski crystal design gift includes all you need to accessorize and sparkle "down there." While the name alone is enough to induce an eye roll or two, would actually receiving gift of this nature produce a similar response? Tell us: what would you do if someone gave this to you as a gift?
Bored with spackling rhinestones all over your ladybits already? Never fear, there's a whole new kind of bikini wax extra to leave your lover slack-jawed: custom airbrush bikini tattoos. For $75, trained estheticians at Completely Bare in New York will airbrush on a flower, butterfly, sun, or calligraphic word in the color of your choosing. The faux ink is supposed to last for five days and is waterproof, though stuff like baby oil and alcohol will remove them — so you can forget that hot oil massage.
This is a pretty fancy fake tattoo, although given the Chanel and Kat Von D faux ink sets that have come out lately, spendy temporary tats are clearly having a moment. What do you think? Are bikini-line temporary tattoos gonna be so hot we'll need a fire extinguisher? Or are they another pubic enemy?
If I were carrying a baby Bella inside me, I'd like to think that I'd have some pressing issues on my mind: Lamaze classes, proper nutrition, getting the nursery ready, that sort of thing. Pubic grooming doesn't make the list. (It's not like I'd be able to see anything below my bump, anyway.) But if you want to test your pain threshold before the birth, you could always go in for a bikini wax. Completely Bare spas have introduced a prenatal wax for pregnant women.
Developed with the help of a physician and esthetician, the service aims to make hair removal more comfortable for the bun-in-the-oven set. Since pregnant women frequently have sensitive skin and reduced maneuverability, the treatment incorporates special pillows, different positions, and a nipple cream to soothe freshly waxed skin. For women who love to be bare, it's a smart idea. But I have a feeling that if I were incubating Bella Jr., I'd probably rather splurge on a nice foot massage than deforestation.

Since it's Beach Week here at BellaSugar, I thought I'd talk about a new at-home waxing kit I tried out. It's from Completely Bare, a New York-based spa specializing in nearly painless hair removal. I confess, I scoffed at the idea of a pain-free bikini wax, but after getting a freebie coupon in a Fashion Week goody bag this past February, I decided to try it. And what do you know? Truth in advertising! I had a great, surprisingly easy (and yes, ouchless) wax.
In-spa waxing really adds up, though, so I was excited to learn about Completely Bare Wax Works ($135, on sale for $99). It's an at-home, do-it-yourself kit using the same French wax that estheticians use at the spa. Would it give the same results at home? To find out, read more
