Hair removal has to be one of the most frequently booked beauty treatments in Adelaide, don't you think? And it's funny when you think about it. We spend a fortune getting the hair on our heads to grow, and equally as much getting rid of it from everywhere else!
At least these days, it's relatively pain-free and very affordable. There was a time when hair removal required you to first sharpen your piece of flint or seashell, which really sounds pretty unpleasant.
And it wasn't that long ago that we relied on razors - probably not the best hair removal tool when you're late for work and in a hurry.
Thankfully these days, waxing and hair removal in Adelaide is quick and easy, with plenty of great salons from which to choose.
Waxing is far superior to shaving for a number of reasons. Firstly, of course, it saves any little accidents. And secondly, it removes the hair completely, leaving your legs, underarms and bikini line smooth for weeks.
While razors may be cheap, there's nothing worse than the stubble that reappears after only a couple of days. And the more you shave, the coarser and possibly darker the hair will become.
Waxing does the opposite; over time your hair will grow back finer and less noticeable. In fact, because waxing weakens the hair follicle, some areas might stop growing permanently.
Using waxing for hair removal in Adelaide also exfoliates your skin, making it not only hair-free but also smooth and silky.
Waxing can be used to remove hair from anywhere on the body, but the type of wax used will vary. Basic hot wax is fine for your legs, but your beautician will use a much gentler wax for your bikini area, underarms, eyebrows, and face.
And don't worry too much about the pain! Over time you will get used to it and consider it only a minor discomfort.
