Waxing, Sugaring, or Threading? Three Roads to Silky Skin

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.

Heidi Lamar didn't know much about spas when she first purchased Spa Lamar. As she explained to reporters from Skin Inc., "not coming from a spa background, there were things I didn't know I couldn't do." Unhindered by industry conventions or previously fixed ideas, Heidi set about filling her 14,000-square-foot spa with innovative amenities?from a luxurious waterfall-fed pool to an onsite yoga and dance studio. She also cultivates locals instead of the typical resort crowd, banishing cacti from the decor in favor of a Caribbean-style ambiance that, as she told the Arizona Republic, caters to those who already live in Arizona and want to get away to a tropical island. Today, her media-lauded spa is the largest privately owned spa in Scottsdale and is frequented by locals, including members of the Phoenix Suns Dancers.

Before treatments that include massages, acupuncture, mani-pedis, and facials, guests garbed in fluffy complimentary robes duck into the steam room. They sample wholesome lunches and fruit plates from the tropical tea bar and relax in the sauna while waiting for a haircut or warm algae wrap. Sunbathers float around the pool on loungers, whereas others simmer in a bubbling whirlpool. Unlike many traditional spas, Spa Lamar is completely coed, making it an ideal place for couples that are on a first date or permanently trapped together inside a horse costume with a broken zipper.

Occasionally, Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa moonlights as a studio. Sometimes camera-toting members of the media stop by to check out this season’s trends or new hair products. Other times, models strut or flutter from imaginary wind gusts during Urban Tribe and other fashion photo shoots. Perhaps most importantly, Mood Swings periodic studio space hosts educational seminars for its talented team of stylists, who learn advanced tips in coloring and other techniques from Aveda professional instructors.

This commitment to the art and science of hair justifies Arizona Foothills magazine selecting Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa as its best salon of 2011. The praise coincides with that from AZCentral.com, which named Mood Swings Best Trendy Salon for “translating cool, avant-garde styles into wearable, everyday looks.” Stylists craft these looks with natural, plant-based products from Aveda, and supplement the service with pampering that can include a complimentary scalp massage, hand facial, and finishing touches to clients’ makeup. A comprehensive services menu treats the entire body, ranging from natural skin products that rejuvenate complexions to pedicures that soothe feet with a dual-jet therapeutic whirlpool after unsuccessful attempts to walk barefoot across a hot charcoal grill.

At the mother-daughter-owned Primp and Blow: A Blow Dry Bar, stylists focus on a single goal: speedily making over customers? hair and makeup in an upscale, scissor-free salon setting. Stylists focus their services around blowouts, mastering the art of transforming wet strands into pin-straight 'dos, big curls, or the flirtatious ?Scottsdale ponytail.? Products from Bumble and Bumble or Moroccanoil seal in styles, which can last for days or until clients attempt to brush their hair with a cotton-candy spinner. Cosmetologists wield equally effective serums from brands such as Rain and La Bella Donna?two lines of organic mineral makeup.

Rather than getting hair styled only alongside a clip or before a fancy occasion, these fashion-forward stylists reason that everyday events call for a polished look, be it a meeting, big date, or highly publicized nap. Primp and Blow has grabbed local buzz from publications such as AZFoothills.com?for which a writer declared, ?I tried Primp and Blow for the first time on New Years Eve and was amazed with my look. In with a baseball cap and oversized shades and out looking, and feeling, red carpet ready.? The overwhelming positive reviews helped the owners to open a second location. Both salons reflect the glamorous, everyday kind of luxury the team hopes to deliver, enhancing customer experiences with digital magazines on iPads and the glow of chandeliers.

In 2008, Alli Webb, a former Hollywood publicist and NYC-trained stylist, pioneered the in-home blowout with a select roster of clients. Her clientele soon outgrew her home, so she opened Drybar in Brentwood, California. Drybar has since gone national with an ever-growing roster of 36 shops, including one in the Scottsdale Quarter that, much like the Michelin man?s inspiration board, is dedicated solely to blowouts. In 2012, Drybar expanded to a second location in Phoenix's Camelback Corridor. Alli and her stylists fan hair into one of nine styles, from straight and sleek 'dos to loose beach waves and soft curls. The service menu also encompasses whimsical updos and blowout add-ons, such as scalp massages.

Alli?ranked 35 on Fast Company's 2013 list of the most creative people in business?stays true to her roots by occasionally dispatching stylists to perform blowouts at homes, but her bright, spacious shops offer a welcoming alternative. Yellow accents in the form of fresh flowers, a chandelier made from hair dryers, and end tables pop from a backdrop of dazzling white walls, counters, and chairs. The simple yet chic space sets the stage for parties complete with Drybar's signature service.

When it comes to hair removal, the certified technicians at Body Solutions Skin, Laser & Massage have a goal besides precision: painlessness. Their Soprano XL laser emits less energy with a faster pulse than many other laser tools, enabling it to shut down follicles just as effectively but without a harsh sting. This FDA-approved brand of virtually painless hair removal is the staff's specialty, and can clear fuzz from faces, backs, arms, legs, and bikini zones.

The staff's other focus is skincare. Pulsed light remains the weapon of choice for banishing age spots and redness during photofacial and skin-tightening services. Crystal-free microdermabrasion smooths and brightens complexions without incorporating diamonds or other crystals, which can be abrasive and lead to misconceptions about whether your aesthetician is ready to take your relationship to the next level. For those looking pamper their muscles and psyches, massage treatments bypass gadgetry in favor of trained kneads by a licensed therapist.
