Waxing is a hair removal method in which the hair is removed from the root, semi permanently. All areas of the body can be waxed such as legs, arms, back, abdomen, bikini area and feet – along with face and eyebrows. Waxing effectively removes large amounts of hair at a single time and is longer-lasting than others methods of hair removal, such as shaving. In waxing, hair will take around two to eight weeks to grow back. However, in some individuals, there is some re-growth in a week. As waxing is repeated over long periods of time, the hair starts to appear finer.
