TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey is smoothing out differences over a plan to ban bare-it-all bikini waxing.

The state is reversing course on the proposal after angry salon owners complained about losing business ahead of swimsuit season.

The state Cosmetology and Hairstyling Board proposed banning so-called “Brazilian” bikini waxing after two women were hospitalized for infections following the procedure.

But on Friday, Consumer Affairs Director David Szuchman effectively killed the plan. In a letter to the board, Szuchman says he won’t support the ban.

He noted the procedure can be performed safely and recommended that the board consider a review of waxing procedure training.
