    Wax, thread, shave. Depeding on the body part that I want denuded.

    It depends on teh part of the body I’m removing hair from. So I guess I do both sugaring and shaving. I love EOS shaving cream (the sensitive one or the Vanilla) one with a Schick Quattro razor. as for sugaring, Moom.

    I voted shaving and other.  I shave my legs, armpits, lady parts, and arms but I pluck my eyebrows and any other parts that are lucky enough to grow random dark hairs….

    I epilate all the way… can be a bit sore on some parts though! When I can afford it, I’ll get laser. The problem is that I am one hairy, hairy beast!

    Currently doing laser. Got an AMAZING deal on Groupon, or else I would never be able to afford it!

    I usually just shave, occasionally I’ll wax, but it’s such a pain. I get my eyebrows waxed and tweeze in between. I used wax… “down there” but my Darling Husband hated it. He prefers au natural. So yeah, I’m all over the place with hair removal! Definitely no hair removal creams, they smell sooooo bad to me!

    Epilate, epilate, epilate! Well my underarms and legs and bikini line. I’ve also epilated my lady parts about 3 times but then decided that’s enough torture for me LOL! For my eyebrows, I pluck.

    Shave or pluck.  I’m not fond of waxing since you have to let the hair grow out so much and it’s a lot more expensive than other options.

    I talked to a doctor once about laser hair removal and she said that if genetically hair wants to grow there that laser removal will only do so much. You’d have to come back for many many treatments (not just 2 or 3) and to me the expense wasn’t possible at the time.

    I’ve tried epilating before as well and I thought it worked really well–especially on my legs where the pain didn’t bug me as much.

    I shave my legs and bikini area.  I get my eyebrowns and mustache waxed everytime I get my hair done.  I’ve done it myself, but I love the shape I get when my stylist does and its only $10 extra for both.  Worth it.

    I’ve had laser in the past on my ‘stache, but 3-5 treatments didn’t touch it.  I had 17 treatments and it got rid of around 1/2 my hair.  I know it only lasts 1 second, but the pain/anticipation of it got to much after going for 3 years so I stopped and wax it.  But it is thinner and finer!

    I want to get my bikini area waxed but I can’t afford it regularly.  I did it myself once, but its too complicated to keep up.  I hope to about 1 week before my wedding!
