i tried to wax myself. it hurt. a lot. and and i couldnt get it all out. and to get it done professionally is about $20. but my problem is stubble. i dont mind the bumps because if you shave enough, it should stop doing that. my problem is that i cant shave the stubble without putting cuts all over my skin. i dont get this problem anywhere else. and i dont have this problem when i'm shaving if off after its grown out.
