The Top 10 Hair Removal Methods – Which Is Right For You?

Do you have unwanted body hair? Are you trying to choose between hair
removal methods? This guide contains all you need to decide. It
details several popular as well as not-so-common methods of getting rid of
unwanted hair, including shaving, plucking, waxing, sugar waxing, bleaching, threading, depilatories, electrolysis, laser, and vaniqa.


Shaving is a temporary hair removal method. It is inexpensive, but for
most people the hair has started to grow back by the following day. To
prevent stubble, you must shave once or twice daily. Razors come in all
varieties. They can be made of cheap plastic with a single blade which can
be bought for a quarter, or a high quality electric version costing $50 or


Another common hair removal method is plucking, or tweezing, the hair.
While this method is time consuming, as you can only pluck one hair at a time,
it is useful for smaller areas, such as an extra eyebrow hair or two.
However, it can be painful, especially around the eyes, and can cause irritation
and ingrown hairs. While it is a myth that by plucking a hair out by its
root you are causing two to grow in its place, many women do not pluck their
hair for this very reason. But investing in a $2 pair of tweezers is a
lifesaver when you want to look perfect for that special occasion.


For larger areas, many people prefer to use hot wax. The wax is applied
to the skin with a piece of paper or cloth covering it. After the wax
cools, the strip is ripped away, taking the hair with it. While this
method is fast, it can also be painful. In aplus addition, waxing removes the
top layer of skin, and can cause rashes and redness. However, once you
become good at the technique, it is an easy and inexpensive way to quickly get
rid of unwanted hair at home. Kits can be purchased for $20-$40. You
can also have your skin waxed by a professional. Depending on the area you
are having waxed, this can cost from $20 to around $150.

Sugar Waxing

Sugar waxing is similar in method to traditional waxing, except that the
“wax” is a sticky sugary paste. Sugaring is even less expensive, as home
kits can be bought for as little as $10.


Rather than removing the hair, some women prefer to lighten it. This is
especially common for women with facial hair. Bleaching is completely
pain-free, and can be done at home. Most women do not have any skin
reactions to the bleach; however, as with a hair dye, be sure to test first on a
small, inconspicuous part of your skin, just in case the bleach does change your
skin color or cause irritation.
