Hair removal treatments are a necessity for many women, particularly during the warm summer season where tank tops and bikinis reign supreme. There are a variety of hair removal techniques that are available, but which one is right for you?

Here’s our guide to the most common hair removal treatments:

What You Need to Know About Waxing

Waxing is one of the most well-known hair removal techniques, and it has been used for decades in common areas such as the eyebrows and bikini line. Many people prefer waxing because it offers long-term results- new hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. The procedure requires the technician to use wax to remove hair, in one direction, by the root and almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.

Threading and Hair Removal

Threading is another hair removal technique that is quickly growing in popularity. This hair removal technique is ideal for eyebrows or facial hair. It is a gentler technique than waxing, but still provides long-term results. Threading requires the technician to use a thread to remove hair by the root. The process requires one hair to be removed at a time, and removal works in different directions. Many people are finding that they can have their eyebrows threaded to achieve a natural yet defined shape.

About Sugaring Hair Removal Treatments

Sugaring is an alternative hair removal treatment that is preferred by those who are searching for natural and organic ways to remove body hair. The process requires the technician to use a sugar paste and apply it to the affected area. The paste is then removed — usually in the opposite direction of waxing — to eliminate hair in the area.
