Apparently if you are going to have a full body wax, the worst bit if the under arms.

That is according to Haverhill hypnotherapist Peter Doherty who had a head shave and full body wax on Sunday (8) to raise money for charity.

“I was fine all the way through. I didn’t cry – that was the main thing,” said Peter.

“I’m now completely hairless from top to bottom.

“I’m feeling the cool on my head now. The under arms were probably the most sensitive bit – that was the worst part.

“But I cheated because I did my own self hypnosis so I was relaxed and calm.”

Now Peter is hoping that his hair will grow back.

His efforts were in aid of Children With Cancer. Peter broke his £1,000 target and is still taking donations.

The wax and headhsave took place at Anne of Cleaves House where Peter works and was carried out by members of staff from C&B Beautiful in Haverhill.
