To shave or to wax? Or to use a depilatory? Or to laser? Oh, and wait, what about electrolysis? There are many questions when it comes to getting rid of unwanted body hair—regardless on what body part you're talking about and friends we have the answer: Urbana! Though you can pretty much use any at home hair removal method you can achieve some degree of success, however we here at LPB believe that top notch waxing and laser treatments from salons yields the best, most fuzz-free results. Whether you prefer to D.I.Y. or leave the hair removal in the hands of an expert we have one place in mind and one place alone – Urbana. Now we can understand doing some treatments at home because times are hard on the wallet but trust us Urbana is a splurge that will truly be a well spent investment! Here we share some of our wallet friendly Urbana tips to ensure that your beauty splurge will leave you silky smooth for weeks to come!
  1. First be sure your hair is long enough: It should be a quarter of an inch long if it's fine and a half-inch long if it's coarse. Otherwise, the wax is not going to work.
  2. Be sure to prepare for your spa/salon visit: Stop using retinoids, like retinol, Retin-A, and Renova, at least a week beforehand to prevent redness and burns. And insist that the aesthetician clean up the fuzz above your brows, too—the overall shape will look much better for weeks longer.
  3. After waxing, soothe the skin with an aloe lotion, or use hydrocortisone cream if you get any red bumps.
  4. Lasers work by wrecking hair at the root, preventing it from growing back for a year—or much longer. Sessions are fast, lasting just a few minutes, and feel a little like a rubber band being snapped against your skin (i.e., not pleasant but not particularly painful, either.)

It's time to toss your Bic and your boyfriend's rusty can of shaving cream: Urbana - the masterminds behind eliminating unwanted hair has the ultimate luxury line of permanent hair removal treatments for women (and men) who are looking to stay smooth all year round! Like party crashers, we women (unfortunately) experience having a few (or a ton) of hairs that pop up, unexpected. For hairs on your chin, neck, nipples, toes, or any other inconvenient area, hair removal is the simplest (and quite frankly – only) option. But to eliminate those hairs forever, we highly suggest Urbana’s top notch hair removal treatments from the pain free waxing by Lycon to its plethora of laser treatments each designed to rid you of those unsightly growths you wished you never inherited in the first place! Here are our Urbana 101 tips when it comes to being fuzz free!

Shaving 101: Honestly – avoid it! As anyone who's ever held a razor knows, stubble will quickly return—sometimes within a matter of hours -- major no no.

Waxing 101: Here's an easy way to keep stubble away longer—we're talking days rather than hours—and get the hair to grow back finer and sparser over time. Lucky for you Urbana offers a full range of treatments that will rid you of any unwanted hair you might have.

Laser 101: Talk to anyone who's wielded a laser - especially one by the amazing team at Urbana, and they'll tell you that the Urbana treatments yield the best results. As in, the hair disappears the fastest and stays away the longest, with many women reporting that they have little or no hair growth in the area years after stopping treatment. To get to that point, you'll need about seven sessions, which is perfect since you will receive a discount if you go with a package. (The hair will thin out more and more with each session.) And when hair does start to reappear, the occasional maintenance session (once every few months) is usually enough to keep it at bay.

There you have it - the next time you dread looking at your reflection because of the "whiskers" you are sporting grab the phone and make an appointment - stat!
