A subject close to the heart of many girls like me is hair removal, Meg has just been discussing this issue and now I find that Daily Makeover are considering it as well. Personally I have generally relied on shaving, it is quick easy (mostly) painless and effective. I have tried creams and found them to be smelly, and not as effective. I have also tried self waxing, painful and not as effective.
I do rather like the idea of having a professional full body wax, I think that having it done professionally should give a better longer lasting result without the inconvenience, just a cost. Maybe if one day I have an occasion that requires a nice smooth image I may succumb to temptation, but probably not.
One form of hair removal which both of these authorities seem to have overlooked is threading. It is a while since I have had my eyebrows threaded, and it shows. There are some who can carry off heavy eyebrows, but I need to claim every bit femininity I can get. Threading is in effect a form of plucking, but over quicker, it is not pain free, but the results are worth it, and as I say it is over quickly.
