The face is the only area that can be treated with just about any type of hair removal technique. Threading and waxing work best for the area above the upper lip as well as brow area. Lasers are another option but I wouldn’t recommend it as it can cause discoloration & wouldn’t want that done around my eyes. What about unwanted fuzz? I wax & it lasts weeks! People always ask me my opinion threading vs. waxing. Let’s be honest, I’ll always pick wax but not because that’s what I’m trained in but because I see a lot of clients who get breakouts & ingrown hairs after threading. If threading for the first time, do a test spot to make sure your skin can handle it!
Here’s the breakdown:
You have sensitive skin, want longer term results and need the help of a professional to get your brow shape choose… Threading
You have a desire for results that last longer than what you’ll get with threading choose…. Waxing (my personal fav)
You have some skill in the brow shaping department or a few stragglers choose.. Tweezing. But be careful!! Nothing worst than an over-tweezed eyebrow! Always see a professional!
Shaving is the most popular way to get rid of underarm hair, but laser hair removal or waxing are very effecctive as well.
Since the hair on the bikini tends to be thick & coarse, I suggest waxing for long lasting results. In particular make sure to go somewhere where they use a good hard wax. Laser is another option, however be prepared for it! It is said to hurt…a lot.
Consider whether you can afford to sport some stubble for a while. If so, wax (or laser hair removal) is your best option. If not, shaving is the only other thing but it will grow back quick.
