Brazilian Bikini Waxing To Continue In Garden State

New Jersey state officials have dropped a proposed bikini wax ban after salon owners protested and the state's consumer affairs director refused to support the measure.

"Many commenters have noted that the procedure can be safely performed," said New Jersey Consumer Affairs Director David Szuchman in a letter to the state's board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling. The ban was proposed after two women were hospitalized with infections after receiving brazilian waxes. "It was an unnecessary issue," said spa owner Linda Orsuto. "In New Jersey especially, where the government has been picking our pockets for so long, it was like: 'Just stay out of our pants, will you?'" [The Telegraph, The Chicago Tribune]
