When you see those gorgeous ladies on magazine spread, Facebook or Instagram wearing sexy bikini, you may feel tempted to try taking a few nice photos at swimming pools or beach with your bikini on too. The first concern of yours might be the fats on your belly, which can be solved by working out and controlling diet. What comes next might be the unwanted bush and underarm hair. You definitely don’t want to show these hair with your bikini on, do you? So what are the good ways to remove hair, and where can you go for hair removal? Let Wellnessly educate you on this!

There are two popular ways to remove hair: Waxing and IPL (Intense Pulse Light).

Waxing is an application of wax on skin to remove hair, it is a cheaper way compared to IPL, but it does not remove hair permanently.

IPL is the emission of light into hair follicles where it converts to heat, the hair follicles are thermally damaged to destroy the hair. The heat also disables the cells responsible for new hair growth. It is milder than laser hair removal and the least painful.

Waxing To Remove Body Hair

Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal method. It removes hair from roots, new hair will not grow out for the next 4 to 6 weeks. Waxing can remove hair on any body parts like legs, arms, armpit and pubic area. It is one of the cheaper way to remove body hair.

There are two types of waxing: Strip waxing (soft waxing) and Stripless waxing (hard waxing). Strip waxing means the applying of a thin layer of wax on skin. A piece of cloth or paper is then pasted onto the wax. By peeling off cloth or paper in opposite direction to direction of hair growth, the hair can be removed. Stripless waxing is the application of thick layer of wax onto skin. After the wax is cooled and get hardened, the hardened wax on the skin encapsulate the hair and can then be removed to get rid of the hair without the need for cloth or paper. This method is recommended for people with sensitive skin. The stripless waxing is also less painful.

IPL Hair Removal Treatment

IPL is the permanent removal of body hair. Although it costs more than waxing, it saves money in the long run if you require regular removal of hair on your body. It causes less skin irritation as no pulling of hair is involved. The emission of light converts to heat to destroy the hair follicles and prevent hair growth. A few sessions are needed to complete a treatment.

Types Of Bikini Waxing

Bikini waxing is done to remove excess hair at pubic area to make sure that no hair is revealed when you are wearing bikini bottoms. You can choose to remove all the hair from belly button to buttocks, or partially remove these hair. The removal of hair is for fashion and hygiene purposes. The hair have to be trimmed short before applying wax.

Brazilian waxing: To remove all hair from belly button to buttocks. It can be painful as the bush area is sensitive. The best way to minimise pain and discomfort is through stripless waxing (hard waxing).

Bikini line or triangle: Leave a natural short patch of hair of triangular shape, so that the bush cannot be seen while wearing swimwear.

French waxing (partial Brazilian waxing): leave a vertical strip in front, which is the ‘landing strip’. The landing strip wax has been popularised by models who must wear garments of an extreme narrowness in the crotch region.

Walked past did shop and decided to enquire about their eyebrow embroidery (i did not look online for reviews or anything. chanced upon the shop). Was told by the sales person that there is only 2 packages - $380 vs $980. They obviously tried to sell me the $980 service (no downtime. effect of this looks like you've shaded your eyebrows) by telling me the cons of the $380 service (downtime of 3-5 days i.e. cannot wash eyebrows/touch water on eyebrows for 3-5 days. effect of this is a line-by-line drawn on your eyebrow to mimic them). paid a total of $1018 ($980+$38 for a soothing gel) The treatment was almost painless (minimal pain) and the beautician did a good job in designing my brows (2 different designs to choose from) before finally proceeding. i'm very satisfied with their service in general but dissatisfied later that i found out through searching online that there were many intermediate price range, which i was not informed about despite specifically asking 2-3 times as i was quite taken aback that the price was so steep.If i had been informed about the differences between the services, i might have made a more informed choice..

My first experience with jap salon. Went for haircut yesterday. Overall service was good. But i expect a better skill from director level. Not worth the money of $80 just for a normal haircut. After haircut my hair look frizzier. Doesnt meet my overall expectation.

i did fringe rebonding. the effect is quite good. it does not lay flat on my face. pricing is on the high side but they did wash and blow the entire hair for me after the rebonding. i like it that it does not have a lot of waiting time though.
