With spring already here (even though it may not feel like it) there comes more hair removal. A lot of that entails bikini waxing of some sort or another.
We asked Noemi Grupenmager (pictured above), founder and CEO of Uni K Wax Centers: What trends do you foresee in bikini waxing for this spring?
"Over 80% of customers I see have a bikini wax service and the trend I am seeing is more customers going for a full Brazilian bikini (full front and back) rather than just a bikini or deep bikini line wax. I also find that America is a country that loves to maintain high levels of hygiene, whether it is to be beach ready or show off the latest in sexy fashion styles/bathing suits, etc.
Hair removal is very much a trend that has been growing significantly over the last ten years and ever since I introduced the Brazilian bikini wax 21 years ago, I have seen Brazilian bikini's grow globally to the point where full body waxing is as normal of a routine as having a pedicure or manicure done."
We share more in common than working in the hair removal world. Naomi in Spanish is Noemi.

Tweezing has been a go-to for eyebrow shaping for I don't know how many decades. Waxing is also extremely popular as almost every salon and spa offers it. Every year it seems more women are having the string taken to their brows with threading.
Sugaring, although more expensive and not available at many salons or spas is another wonderful way to shape brows. Learn about how this method works, the two different types, why you might want to switch over (or at least try it) and tips for finding a professional or giving it a shot at home.
For convenience, it's really easy to keep your razor in the bathroom because that's most likely where you shave. The moisture from the steam and any water that may hit on the razor corrodes away its life, making it dull before its time. That makes you either have to use it longer than you should or put in a new blade.
Along with cleaning the razor and drying it after each use, another way to prolong its life is to keep it totally out of the bathroom. Not just the shower. An easy solution is to use the suction cup holders that come with the razor and keep it in your linen closet or somewhere else unseen to grab on your way to the shower. It might be strange at first, but once you get in the habit, you'll remember.

My skin would be a mess if I didn't exfoliate it. But beyond keeping it looking healthy and glowing, exfoliating has another purpose. When done regularly, it helps to ward off ingrown hairs and razor bumps by getting rid of dead skin cells so hair doesn't get trapped allowing them to point up.
Going for a body scrub at a spa can be a wonderfully relaxing experience, although it can cost an arm and a leg. I had an amazing body treatment at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Spa (read review).
Picking up a scrub is much less expensive, but you always can't pronounce everything in the bottle. To really save and know exactly what you're putting on your skin, make your own. They're pretty easy (and fun) to whip up. Our Beauty Expert, Julyne Derrick shares some Homemade Body Scrub Recipes.
