Here are a few hair removal methods salons offer. Some I'm sure you are most familiar with.
WAXING: most popular, hot wax is applied in direction of hair growth and removed opposite of hair growth.
SUGARING: sugar stays at room temp, sugar-based paste removes hair in natural direction of growth.
THREADING: a fav of mine for perfect eyebrows! A tradition from Middle East and South Asia. Intricate use of thread removing hair from root.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL: great for dark hair, requires several sessions for long term results.
ELECTROLYSIS : uses an electric with a fine needle destroying hair follicle and hair's growth center.
TWEEZING: used by the Romans, completes other removal services, good for eyebrows.
So as I end this column I will be getting out our new Gillette Proglide Styler ( my preference of hair removal) and make ourselves slick and smooth for our Provincetown vacation! I suggest you do the same!
Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
