Since the shaggy look isn’t coming back in style anytime soon, here’s a handy guide on where to go for waxing, threading, IPL, and laser hair removal treatments in Singapore. Unwanted hair, begone!

A sister brand of Home Nails, Beauty Room is winning the hearts of the well-groomed with its flawless facials and seamless waxing. What scores major brownie points for us?

In the words of Supersmooth, “Razor blade? Laser, babe.” The hair removal brand in Singapore uses lasers to skip your skin and go straight to the roots of your hair to damage it before the hairs come off after two weeks. That also means the procedure is safe for all skin tones. We stan an inclusive brand! Unlike IPL, these lasers target the fine hairs that grow in place of these coarser hairs. Eight sessions are included with each package, but if those aren’t enough to completely rid you of your hair, the salon offers a three-year warranty to cover any additional sessions.

You’re totally in good hands!

9. Peachy Skin Bar
There’s a new laser hair removal technology on the block and it may be even more comfortable than IPL.

Targeting both coarse and fine hairs, SHR is an effective treatment that’s suitable for all skin types – even sensitive skin!

At this certified sugaring studio, Brazilian treatments are significantly less painful. Using 100% natural and water-soluble sugar paste, sugar paste is applied at body temperature so scalding never occurs (been there, done that – never again). Hair is then removed in its natural direction of growth, which leads to lesser hair breakage and fewer ingrown hairs. Remember to hydrate yourself and exfoliate between sugaring sessions; it’s the best way to keep skin healthy for better results. Take it from us. Sugaring will change your life.
