For many men and women, unwanted hairs pop up in a variety of places, and there are only a handful of options to deal with them. While shaving and plucking work well for some areas of the body, they both have their drawbacks. Shaving doesn’t last very long, and plucking can be painful or irritating and take a long time to get results. In the end, almost everyone will look towards waxing as a solution to unwanted body hair at some point in their life, and while most people view waxing with discomfort, it remains a necessary option for hair removal.
Going to the Salon
Going to a salon is the easiest way to get waxing done. For women, eyebrow waxing and other facial hair removal are services offered at most salons and can easily be rendered in addition to hair treatments. Waxing can often be administered for a fairly low additional cost and takes only a few extra minutes at the end of the appointment. By pursuing waxing at a salon, a person can avoid the anxiety of waxing themselves, or trusting an inexperienced friend to remove their unwanted hair properly. However, frequent trips to the salon can add up to be fairly expensive, and arranging appointments amidst a busy schedule can prove to be quite difficult.
Purchasing waxing kits from drugstores is another option to get similar results as salon waxing. Keep in mind, though, that it takes time and experience to gain salon quality waxing from an at-home kit. If you’ve never waxed yourself before, be careful so you don’t remove more hair than you originally intended. Also, the wax in these products usually is not the same quality wax that is used by your hair dresser, and you may need to apply the wax two or three times to remove all the hairs.
Another aspect to be cautious of is the microwave. Some waxing kits contain strips of paper that already have the wax in them, but many require the warming of the wax in the microwave prior to use. Because microwaves vary significanty in their strength, it’s easier to make the wax too hot or too cold for proper use. Ultimately, these concerns are quite minor, and can frequently be avoided, if you’re careful. In the end, the fact remains that waxing is something you’ll likely have to pursue in some capacity. By being aware of such issues, you can successfully pursue unwanted hair removal on your own and choose the option that is best for you.
