Dressing it up... down there
by Cheng Jee Yan

It's the hottest accessory trend in the US now,  thanks to actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. She revealed in a January guest appearance on the George Lopez show that she had been 'vajazzled' -  a fashion statement that blings up your nether region with stick-on crystals.

The trend is catching on with brides-to-be and adventurous ones who want to add a little sparkle to that special anniversary celebration.

All you need to do is to shave off the fuzz and go crazy with crystals to achieve a desired design of your choice.

Vajazzling isn't commercially available in Singapore yet, but you can still get yourself a vajazzling kit off the Internet for a DIY treatment.

Start with the steps belows:

1. You can start by purchasing stick-on swarovski crystal tattoos. They come in various designs such as hearts, stars and butterflies. These are available for purchase at They cost about US$25 (S$35, excluding shipping) for each pattern.

To save on costs and get some company, you can always rope in a couple of your best friends and purchase wholesale vajazzling kits at It is slightly cheaper because for 25 pieces, you only pay US$49.90 (S$71, excluding shipping)

2. Prepare your pubic area by waxing or shaving your bikini area completely. Waxing is usually recommended because the fuzz stays off longer.

3. Clean skin with an alcohol swab or soapy cloth to remove any lotions or oils. Then clean skin and pat dry with a soft towel.

If you experience any skin irritation after shaving, wait for the irritation to clear up. Stickers stay on clean skin better than skin that has product residue or lotions on it.

4. Make sure to apply the crystal stickers to the upper part of your bikini area only.

5. Line up the pattern as you desire and press firmly and hold for a few seconds to finish.

Your vajazzled pattern should last a few days. Wearing tight fitting clothes will rub the stones off so loose fitting bottoms are recommended.

Other down-there grooming options you can consider - trimming your fuzz to a desired shape, or even dying your hair down there to match your crowning glory.
