Six of the best: Alternatives to shaving

WAXING

How does it work?
Waxing removes hair from its roots. Available at most spas, waxing can also be done in the privacy of your home. Simply warm the strips between your hands, apply in the direction of the hair growth and pull away in the opposite direction.

Advantages
You can wax wherever you like, from your eyebrows to your feet. Pre-coated wax strips are virtually mess-free and are also a manageable solution for small areas such as brows and lips or bikini line touch-ups. In contrast to other hair removal techniques, waxing also covers the most ground, removing large areas of hair quickly with a result that last from two to eight weeks long.
