As anyone who has ever been for a wax can confirm, it’s unlikely to be the highlight of your week.

There you are, lying back half-starkers in front of a strange woman while she gets to work ripping out your hair – often from, ahem, sensitive regions.

So no, it’s hardly all that alluring.

However, most woman also admit that it’s a necessary evil – and one which at least leaves you smooth and hair-free for longer than two days (thanks, shaving).

There’s a lot to be said to a great waxist too – one that really knows that they’re doing and uses a decent product (we particularly love salons that stock the oh-so amazing Irish brand Waxperts).

Still – most of us have a least one waxing horror story: one that makes you shudder upon recollection.

And you’re probably not alone: indeed, Buzzfeed recently rounded up a selection of truly nasty tales… and here, SHEmazing! has selected the best for your, er, enjoyment.


1) “I work in a spa and heard an awkward shriek come from the waxing room. I asked my co-worker what happened.

“She told me she accidentally pulled the client’s tampon string, then tried to push it back in. Needless to say, that client never came back.”


2) “My legs had fallen asleep during the waxing. When I tried to get off the table, my legs gave out and I faceplanted half naked onto the floor while my waxer watched in horror.”

3) “At my salon I do all of the body waxing services. While in the middle of waxing a client’s backside, the woman farted and way more than just smelly air came out. It was a mess.”


4) “My first bikini wax was in high school. Two of my best friends waxed me while I laid on a coffee table in my basement.

“I guess you could say I was “surprised” by the pain, and I peed everywhere. I’m still embarrassed almost six years later.”

5) “Halfway through my bikini wax, the fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate the building. Let’s just say fire drills are not fun when there’s wax all over your downstairs…”


6) “I recently got my very first Brazilian wax. The lady had put two wax strips on the lip. When she pulled one, I shut my legs in pain, causing the wax to basically glue my vagina shut.”

7) “When I went into the waxing room, I started making casual conversation with the aesthetician and I jokingly asked her, ‘Do I have a normal vagina?’ She looked at me and just laughed, ‘Haha no.’ We didn’t talk the rest of the time.”


8) “One time I got into the position where you pull your knees up to your chest and I farted loudly right into the waxer’s face. I immediately yelled ‘SORRY!’ and didn’t look her in the eyes for the rest of the session.”

9) I thought it would be genius to wax myself. I somehow managed to drop A LOT of hot wax all over the main hoo-ha area, as in NOT the bikini area.

“After a few seconds the wax had hardened and I realised I had basically sealed everything together. I attempted several pulls with zero success.

“So I did the only thing I could think of: I downed a bottle of wine, took a deep breath, and counted to three.”


10) “It hurt so bad, I started crying and having an anxiety attack. The aesthetician said, ‘Oh I’m so sorry! I’ve never had anyone cry on me before.’

“Literally the exact opposite of what I wanted to hear in that moment. Terrible first experience.”

11) “The woman doing my wax would first put the wax on me and then awkwardly blow on me to cool the wax down. She would look up and smile every time she did it. It was traumatising.”


12) “It was my first time. The waxer looked at me and said, ‘Oh my god. You didn’t trim beforehand?!’ She sighed and got an electric shaver. I was mortified.

“I was even more mortified when she said, ‘You’re so dry.’ I didn’t say another word until checkout… 45 minutes later.”

Snuggling deeper into our chair; cowering behind an outrageously giant popcorn (the only reason we upgraded from the medium size, natch) we’ve more than once let out a fearful sequel while watching a scary movie at the cinema.

And oh how we love it!


Undoubtedly among the best unnerving cinematic offerings of recent times, the Insidious films have successfully freaked the bejaysus out of millions around the world.

The first installment is now four years old, while chapter two was released in September 2013. Which can only mean one thing: we’re bravely (don’t question it – we’re brave) ready for yet another episode.

By all accounts Insidious Chapter 3, which was filmed in LA last summer and is released here on June 5, is seriously spooky – in fact, it’s being billed as the darkest film in the trilogy.

A prequel, it takes place before the haunting of the Lambert family. The plot follows gifted psychic Elise Rainer as she attempts to save a young woman from demonic possession. And in doing so, she discovers more of the terrifying realm of The Further. Eeeek!

Dermot Mulroney stars as Sean Brenner, while Stefanie Scott plays Quinn. Angus Sampson returns as Tucker, while Lin Shaye will once again play Elise Rainer.

“This take has elements the audience hasn’t seen in the previous movies, and a lot of scares,” warns Oren Peli, one of the Insidious Chapter 3 producers, and previously the director of Paranormal Activity.

Stefanie Scott stars as Quinn


“We want audiences to be absolutely terrified,” adds Leigh Whannell, the writer and director of the movie, and the man responsible for penning Saw more than a decade ago.

Both Insidious, and Insidious Chapter 2 did outrageously well at the box-office, collectively amassing more than €230m – and it looks like the third film is going to be a huge summer hit too.

Insidious Chapter 3 is released in Irish cinemas on June 5. You can check out www.facebook.com/InsidiousUK for more details about the movie. For more info and to book tickets, click here.



If you haven't yet watched the 2005 Australian horror movie Wolf Creek, then count yourself lucky. For those of us who have seen it, the film has scarred us, haunted us, and reminded us that we should never, EVER talk to strangers. 

Wolf Creek isn't your standard horror. Yes, it's tremendously gory, yes, it's frightening, but there's something else about this flick that leaves our skin crawling.

Maybe it's because it's not set in a sorority house? Maybe it's because the characters don't invite horror upon themselves with macho 'bring it on!' chants in an attempt to call the killer's bluff? Or maybe it's because the situation is so normal and the characters so relatable that we feel an extra sense of unease throughout the entire movie.

Ladies, this film is exactly why our parents would rather we went to Bundoran with them than off gallivanting around the globe with our friends.

Here are just a few reasons why this film left us oh-so-very cold.

1) The first thirty minutes or so could be an advertisement for why travel is amazing. Hell, we forgot we were watching a horror and wanted to join Ben, Kristy and Liz on their wild adventure.


2) The girls were the exact type of girls we would have gravitated towards on a trip away. Astute, fun and smart; these doomed girls were US!


3) The sudden unease that descended around the campfire was almost palpable when the three friends realised there might be more to Mick Taylor, the man who has offered to help, than meets the eye.


4) Seeing the agonising scenes from Liz's perspective as we watched her friend be subjected to untold brutality at the hands of the man they had trusted.


5) Mick Taylor's laugh will haunt our dreams for the rest of our adult life.


Never, ever again.




NBC have released a short sneak peek of the upcoming mini-series, Rosemary’s Baby.

The series will be based on Ira Levin’s 1967 best-selling novel, Rosemary’s Baby, which was later made into a film starring Mia Farrow.

The storyline will see a young woman move into an apartment in Paris with her husband. When she falls pregnant she begins to suspect her husband and neighbours of having terrible plans in store for her.

Zoe Saldana will star in the series which was announced in January this year.



The new Showtime series that will air in May is a pyschosexual horror TV show that brings terrifying characters of classic literature such as Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and Dracula to life in 1890’s London.

Some of the show was shot in Temple Bar recently and stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Billie Piper.

This newly released featurette goes behind the scenes of the exciting series to discuss how the setting was created and all of the work that goes into a period drama such as this.
