Hello, lovelies!

 

Summer starts in approximately four months which means we need to be proactive in what we want out of our hair removal experience! 

 

Do we want the hair on our whole bodies removed? Minus the hair on our head?

 

Unless that’s your thing, if so, ROCK IT, GIRL!

 

Or do we want selective areas gone of hair? I.e. bikini line, legs, upper lip, and armpits.

 

No matter what your preference, there is a perfect plan of attack for every  area and every type of person!!!

 

Okay, plan of attack sounds a bit aggressive…

 

BUT that hair is super aggressive, so we are going to get rid of it the absolute best way we know-how. Which is by:

 

  • Using razors
  • Threading
  • Tweezing
  • Microblading
  • Dermaplaning 
  • Waxing
  • Hair Removal Cream
  • Laser

 

Which one works best for which areas? Is there one that works the best overall? Are any of these methods of hair removal pointless? ALSO, what are the prices? This is all something we are going to explore in the following blog post, from head to toe, below. Xx

 

HEAD

Eyebrows

Your head has probably the most variety in areas that you could want hair removed from. Perhaps more than you think! (So be forewarned, this list is a bit lengthy. But thorough as ever, ladies!) Check out the best methods for ridding of hair in this more sensitive skin, and generally small, surface areas.

 

EYEBROWS

They tell us if you’re happy, sad, confused, or full of sass. Here’s the best way we can see your emotions projected flawlessly.

 

Threading

A precise method of shaping, no chemicals are used, quick, long-lasting (about 3-4 weeks), and affordable. ALSO be sure to say YES to that aloe Vera gel after you’re done, girl!

 

Starting price for eyebrow threading at a salon is about £5. Not too shabby.

 

Tweezing

Much like threading, tweezing is a precise method of shaping as well. No chemicals are used, but it takes longer to do as each hair follicle is targeted (looking out for all my thick browed ladies!) Tweezing is long-lasting (about 3-4 weeks) and generally affordable as well. You can also do this at home yourself!

 

At a salon, prices typically start at about £20.

 

Waxing

Great for my thicker browed ladies as the wax removes the entire strand on which it is applied, which makes the process of waxing quicker than tweezing or threading — long-lasting (2-6 weeks) and generally affordable.

 

Prices at salons start at about £17.

 

Microblading

A process in which manual pigment is inserted into the top layers of skin to create a full and shapely brow. Also known as a semi-permanent tattoo. This lasts anywhere from 11 to 18 months, with a touch up done about halfway. As for price, keep in mind (as with all other services) you get what you pay for.

 

Prices for quality microblading start at about £500.

UPPER LIP

Upper lip hair removal

Your smile says a thousand words. And hairy is NOT one of them. How best do we keep your gorgeous lips hair-free?

 

Threading

Your salon will gladly thread this area for you in addition to, or instead of, your eyebrows as well! Precise, long-lasting, chemical-free, and much like the eyebrows, don’t say no to applying that aloe vera gel to help it cool and heal after!

 

Prices for upper lip threading start at about £10 – £15.

 

Waxing

Something you can do at home! Or at a salon. But to save money on this less detail-oriented area, you can take advantage of over the counter liquid wax or sticky strips. This is probably one of the cheapest, more comfortable options (being that you can do it at home…not necessarily for the pain, sorry not sorry loves!).

 

The starting price for an at-home waxing treatment is about £7.

 

Hair Removal Cream

Very similar to waxing, but all you do is apply the cream to the desired area you wish to remove hair from, let it sit for approx. 8 minutes, then you take a warm, wet cloth and scrape away the cream. It’s that simple! This usually lasts about 3-4 weeks until you must do it again.

 

Prices for at-home kits start at £5.

 

Laser hair removal

Would you like to lessen the frequency (in your lifetime) in which you must maintain your upper lip hair situation? With a little zap or session of 6 to 8, here at CALVEO, we can take care of that for you. It’s the most permanent way possible!

 

For just the upper lip we offer £50, for a course of 6 sessions we offer £240, and for a course of 8 £280.

CHIN

Chin hair removal

Not by the hair of your chinny chin-chin…because there are none, duh!

 

Threading 

Ask your local salon for specials if you want to get your whole face done via this method.

 

Like Eyebrows and Upper Lip, the price for threading start at about £10 – £15.

 

Waxing 

The starting price for an at-home waxing treatment is about £7. In a Salon, the cost is more likley to be about £17 upwards.

 

Hair Removal Cream

Use at-home products.

JAW

Jaw hair removal

A sharp jaw could cut glass. But a smooth jaw? A smooth jaw can rule the world. Is this even a saying?? Okay, I don’t know or think it is, but it’s super inspiring so go with it!

 

Threading/Waxing/Hair Removal Cream

Can be done at home or in a salon from £7 upwards.

 

Dermaplaning

Is a manual treatment using a medical scalpel to lightly exfoliate the skin’s surface. In the UK sessions cost within the £32-£120 mark depending on the location.

 

Laser

We’re consistent where consistency is due. At CALVEO its £50 for a single session with us, £240 for a course of six sessions, or £280 for a course of 8!

Sideburn hair removal

A little too bushy for your liking? We’ve got you covered. So do a few other methods.

 

Trim it!

BONUS HACK! Something you can do at home. Aaaand something that doesn’t quite work for other areas of the body. This is specially reserved here.

 

Waxing/Hair Removal Cream

Be very careful as to avoid removing the actual hair from your head! Unless you want to!

 

Dermaplaning

Works great at removing facial peach fuzz. Sessions here at CALVEO dermaplaning packages start at £45.

 

Laser those things away

£50 for a single session, £240 for a course of 6 sessions, or £280 for a course of 8 (only here at CALVEO!). The more often you come, the less likely the hair in this area will grow back, like, ever!

Electric Razor

A wonderful tool that can be used at home and is specially made for treating these hard to get areas.

 

Starting price for quality electric razors is usually about £50.

 

Tweezing

Be still my love, this may hurt a bit, but you won’t have to do it again for another 3-4 weeks!

 

Laser

You know the deal! £60 for a single session, £288 for a course of 6 sessions, or £336 for a course of 8 here at CALVEO! 🙂 The more often you come, the less likely the hair in this area will grow back!

UPPER BODY

 

Much less extensive than your head, and one of the most popular areas to get hair removal done. Especially during the sweltering summer months when tank tops, tube tops, and bathing suits are the norm.

 

ARMPITS/UNDERARMS

Underarm hair removal

Let your underarms project your summertime mood; smooth sailing, show off, and super carefree.

 

Razor

Just like mum taught us, grab a razor and shaving cream from the store and take care of your armpits at home in the shower. Buy a reusable razor and save the environment while you’re at it too! Frequency on how often you must shave varies from woman to woman. Some need only shave once a week, others every other day.

 

Reusable razors start at about £9! The price of saving the environment never looked so fab.

 

Waxing/Hair Removal Cream

Waxing is painfull and under the arms can bleed if you skin is senstive. Cream is easy to use if you dont mind the smell of it for a bit… Waxing can be done at home or in a salon from £7 upwards. 

 

Laser

Tired of taking care of this region time and time again? Zap those pesky hairs away at just £75 for a single session, £360 for a course of 6, or £480 for a course of 8. Only at CALVEO! Also, we do get both armpits each time…in case you were wondering.

Razor

Good reusable razors start at about £9! The issue you have making sure you dont miss a spot, cutting yourself, or just the sheer choore or doing it week after week.

 

Waxing/Hair Removal Cream

Now the arm is a little longer than your armpit… so using wax is going to take longer, but wont be as painful. Cost from £7 at home, or in a salon from £17-£22.

 

Laser

Want the more permanent fix? We got you on those CALVEO prices: £125 for a single session, £600 for a course of 6, and £700 for a course of 8.

LOWER BODY

 

Jackpot– the FAVOURITE areas for women to get hair removed. Show off those legs! Wear that bathing suit with pride! The world is your oyster, and it’s time to show that oyster what you’ve got!

 

BIKINI LINE

Bikini hair removal

Sunbathe poolside, play volleyball in the sand. Anything is possible in a bikini when you’ve got the confidence to do it!

 

Razor

Same practice as follows above! Perhaps consider using a more sensitive skin oriented shaving cream or gel as this is a more sensitive area.

 

Waxing

I know women who take shots of tequila before getting this done. It will last about 3-4 weeks.

 

Prices at salons start at about £18.

Details of which can be Knicker line/crease of leg (underwear can remain in situ if wanted). NATURALLY NEAT WAX is a little more left on top and labia than Brazilian. A more natural but sparse, tidy look costing about £35.00. The full BRAZILIAN WAX is a thin landing strip left on pubic mound which costs £40.00. The HOLLYWOOD WAX is all hair removed (or a little left if desired on top). Hair removed from crack and cheeks which is about £42.00.

 

Laser

Or invest and don’t have to worry about it ever again! We have Bikini Partial and Bikini Full packages depending on what you’re looking to get done. Refer here to our complete laser hair removal price list on our site

Leg hair removal

Smooth, sultry, strong, AND powerful! Get their attention then kick em off their high horse. Figuratively speaking.

 

Razor

Reusable razors start at about £9! The price of saving the environment never looked so fab.

 

Waxing/Hair Removal Cream

The starting price for an at-home waxing treatment is about £7 and salons have a range of options for including  Lower Leg Wax: (inc. knees) £28.0, Upper Leg Wax: inc. knees/toes: £35.00, Three Quarter Leg Wax: inc. knees/toes: £37.00, Full Leg Wax: inc. knees/toes: £45.00 and Back of Thighs:  £18.00. 

So if you were to work that out, it can be quite costly for a full leg.

We offer Half Legs and Full Legs services too! Depending on if you want ankle to knee done or the whole shebang! See our complete laser hair removal price list.

THE VERDICT

Full body hair removal

Depending on what you’re looking to accomplish hair removal-wise, the prices and length of time it lasts will vary.

 

You can save money while keeping up treatments more often or you can invest, save money long term and get lasting results you may never have to treat again!
