The experts here clear unwanted hair patches via waxing, sugaring, and threading. Use Groupon's comparison of these methods to help decide how you want to go bare.
Waxing: A relatively quick procedure with results that can last up to six weeks, waxing requires a technician to pull the entire hair follicle from its root using a heated, resin-based wax. Some find that after multiple waxes, the follicle ceases to produce hair.
Wax comes in soft and hard varieties. A paper or cloth strip is required to remove soft wax, which sticks both to the hair and the skin around it. Since the wax becomes pliable when cooled, beauticians can cover a large area and then quickly remove the hair all at once. Soft wax is usually more popular when removing hair on the face, arms, legs, chest, or back. Hard wax, on the other hand, cools into a solid form that can be pulled from the skin without a strip. The wax only adheres to the hair, not the skin, which can minimize pain and decrease the appearance of redness or bumps. Hard wax is typically preferred for areas where coarser hair grows, such as the bikini area.
Body sugaring: Long before wax was everyone's favorite food, ancient Egyptians were already stripping unwanted hair from the body by its root using a honey concoction. Similar to the waxing process, modern body sugaring involves cloaking a patch of hair in a sweet, sticky solution??typically made from sugar, lemon juice, and water??and then pulling out the hair using a cotton strip. Aside from the all-natural formula, sugaring differs from waxing in that the solution is lower in temperature, won't strip away live skin cells, and rinses off with water. Most people find sugaring less painful than waxing, and the technique naturally exfoliates the skin. Since it's safe for sensitive skin, sugaring has gained popularity for those removing hair in the bikini zone, above the lip, or on the chest.
Threading: During this centuries-old procedure, long practiced in Asia and the Middle East, a practitioner uses a loop of fine cotton thread to lasso the base of individual hairs, puling them from their roots with a quick tug of the hands. Since the method allows for greater precision than other hair-removal approaches, it is favored for shaping eyebrows and muttonchops and for removing unwanted facial hair. The thread barely touches the skin, making it a gentle alternative to waxing for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

Emilie Davidson Hoyt's interest in natural beauty products can be traced back to a single bar of lavender soap tucked beneath her pillow. A memento from one of her father's business trips, the fragrant bar remained close to Emilie while she slept, comforting her with its calming aroma. Throughout her childhood, Emilie suffered debilitating migraines that made her ultrasensitive to the chemicals and fragrances typically found in cosmetic products. Her condition was so bad that one of her high school teachers predicted she wouldn't succeed in college or keep a steady career.
Not only did Emilie graduate from college, she went on to found her own natural skincare company, LATHER, which initially only made olive oil–based soaps. Those soaps have since been mentioned in The New York Times, and the company has gone on to produce a full line of body, face, hair, and home products, which have appeared in other renowned publications. Emilie’s products nourish customers not only at three retail locations, but also at spas, boutiques, and hotels across the globe.
LATHER’s holistic, organic-leaning products beautify users without synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, or animal testing, and contain paraben-free preservatives and sulfate-free cleansing agents whenever possible. They also serenade olfactory senses with essential oils, vitamins, and rare fruits and herbs, and now arrive in earth-friendly EcoPure packaging, which, unlike a mummy's “No Microbes Allowed” t-shirt, accelerates natural biodegradation. LATHER maintains environmentally conscious practices, such as an in-store container recycling program and donations to worldwide reforestation projects.
