The Ultimate Guide to The Best Hair Removal Techniques

Keeping your skin soft and fuzz-free is a must for many modern-day women. If you are looking for a way to keep body hair at bay there are so many options out there that finding the right solution can be a daunting task.  From the humble razor to state-of-the-art techniques like micro blading, you will be able to find a way to remain hair free all year round.

If you are torn between a simple sugar wax at home or an expensive professional treatment, here is our guide to the most popular ways to remove unwanted hair to help you decide which way is best for you.

  1. Shaving

Easy to do and completely portable, a quick once over with the razor and some shaving cream can rid you of unwanted hair in a matter of minutes.  Whether you use a safety razor or an electric razor, a quick shave can keep legs, underarms and other areas hair free for a short period of time.

Pro’s – Easy to do, inexpensive and can be done virtually anywhere

Con’s – There is a risk of cuts or abrasions, and regrowth can be quick and noticeable as shaving does not remove the hair from the root.

  1. Waxing or Sugaring

Usually best done in a salon, both of these techniques will pull the hair out from the root meaning it takes longer to grow back, leaving you hair free for longer.  The wax or sugar paste is pulled away from the skin, taking all of those pesky unwanted hairs with it.  More suitable (and less painful) on some parts of the body than others, waxing and sugaring are popular with those looking for a short-term solution to body hair that lasts longer than shaving.

Pro’s – Because the hair is completely removed right down to the root, you will achieve longer intervals between noticeable regrowth

Con’s – Both waxing and sugaring can be uncomfortable or even painful and can result in minor skin irritations after the procedure.

  1. Depilatory Creams

Another solution for those looking to de-fuzz at home, hair removal creams weaken the hair follicles to the point where they can simply be wiped away.  While many people still

use these creams to quickly remove hair without the pain of waxing or sugaring, the chemicals used in the process can be harsh on the skin.

Pro’s – Cheap, easy to apply and can be done at home

Con’s – Harsh chemicals can irritate the skin and these types of cream should not be used on sensitive areas.

  1. Threading

This ancient form of hair removal works well on the face and is a great way to keep eyebrows in shape.  A thin piece of cotton is twisted then lightly then moved back and forth to pull hairs out at the root.  Fiddly, and sometimes painful, this process is best undertaken by a professional but does offer a very affordable way of keeping your facial hair in check.

Pro’s – A cheap, low-risk way to remove unwanted facial hair or reshape eyebrows

Con’s – Can be more painful than waxing or sugaring, and an inexperienced threader may break the hairs instead of pulling them out at the root

  1. Laser Hair Removal

Using laser technology is a great way to achieve permanent hair removal. By targeting the hair follicles, laser removal will slow down the hair growth to eventually prevent it from coming back at all.  This type of treatment can only be undertaken by a trained and licensed specialist and you will need to undergo a course of several treatments to see permanent results.  However, if you can afford it and are prepared to attend several visits to the salon, laser hair removal can completely remove unwanted hair in the long term.

Pro’s – A virtually pain-free, permanent solution that can be applied to nearly every part of the body

Con’s – Can be expensive and can take months before results can start to be seen

However, much time and money you want to invest in keeping unwanted hair at bay this summer, there is a solution to suit everyone just waiting to be found.
