bubbly2018 :  I don’t, but I’ve been getting Brazilians every 4 weeks for years and looked into laser hair removal recently. For the same cost of 7 months worth of Brazilians, I can get it lasered off and it’s permanent for the most part. My first session is in a couple weeks. I’m kicking myself for not looking into it years ago.

I use an epilator.. it looks like an electric shaver, but it’s a bunch of rotating tweezers. It works pretty well for me, and it’s only a one-time purchase. It’s the same principle as waxing.. removing the hair from the root.

I’ve been waxing my own legs for years (never shaved) and love it. It’s pretty painless and now the hair comes in so much thinner. Find a good wax (test that you’re not allergic! Trust me) and stick to it, some tubs last quite a long time so it’s not something I have to purchase very often. Washable wax is an easier clean up but doesn’t always work as well, in my experience, though the reuseable strips are a bonus.

I’ve waxed at home, it was easy enough but a bit messy and my results weren’t as good as going to a salon. I use an epilator on my arms, legs, underarms, and bikini area.

wineosaur :   ilovelift :  Could you guys share the brand of epilator that you’re using/would recommend? I was actually just looking into this last night but haven’t ordered anything yet!

I do my eyebrows at home. I go to a salon every month for legs and brazilian.

I have been doing my own Brazilian wax for about 10 years. I would LOVE to do it at a salon, but the prices are outrageous where I now live and no one will do a maintenance wax on the cheap. I’ve decided to start doing my legs too (why didn’t I think of this sooner?!) and am nervous because, in my opinion, waxing my legs hurts worse than waxing my lady garden. If you ever do your own Brazilian or bikini wax, USE THE HARD WAX and not the strip kind. Can’t stress that enough.

My question for the seasoned leg waxers—How do you deal with that time period when your hair is back but not long enough to wax again, especially in the summer?

bubbly2018 :  I really like Parissa! They’ve got a couple different types for coarse hair, facial, etc.
