Face it girls, with summer time we all need extra primping to look our best in those short shorts, skirts and definitely swimsuits.

According to Yelp, here are the five best place for getting waxed in Rockford.

I know just saying the word wax makes many of you cringe, maybe even cross your legs. BUT if you find the right place and the right person that experience doesn't have to be as traumatic as it sounds.

According to Yelp, here are the 5 Best Places for Getting Waxed and looking good for summer.

Prickles Salon - 129 Phelps Ave. Ste. 405 Rockford. (815) 543-9202

The Wax Room - 129 Phelps Ave. Rockford (815) 391-6609 (By the way, they are moving to their new location on Riverside Blvd. June 1st.)

Precision Wax - 929 S. Alpine Road Rockford (815) 997-1016

B Alms Salon and Spa (Formerly High Maintenance) - 4401 Peak Dr. Loves Park, IL (815) 963-1948

WM DaySpa Salon - 6555 Lexus Dr. Rockford (815) 398-4000.By the way, if you want a fast bikini wax done, ask for Caroline. She can do it in 15 minutes and that includes brazilian.

I've used the services at both WM and B Alms, when it was High Maintenance, and I had superb service and it horrible. Maybe I have a higher threshold for pain, but honestly, it's really not that bad.

Here's a tip: if you take a couple of Advil or Ibuprofen about an hour to thirty minutes before your appointment and chew gum during the waxing, you'll be fine.

If you know of other salons that offer this service and you've had a great experience, tell me about it.
