The Best Way to Get Rid of Unwanted Hair

sugaring hair removal at LA Bikini There’s nothing worse than leaving a wax session with burns or irritation that leaves your skin red for hours after. Having beautiful, smooth skin shouldn’t be a painful process! Lucky for you, pain doesn’t have to be a part of your beauty routine. Instead, there’s a better way to get rid of unwanted hair, one that will leave your skin feeling relieved and your skin smooth like never before. Once you’ve tried sugar, you’ll never go back to wax. Instead you’ll be asking your friends — “have you ever sugared!?”

Let’s Talk About Sugar

Hot wax? No way! We care about providing a better hair removal service, one that is safe and natural, effective and never harsh. Sugar hair removal isn’t hot — it isn’t even close. At L.A. Bikini we perform sugaring at body temperature, that means no hot wax burning your skin. If you have sensitive skin, sugaring is a great way to remove unwanted hair because the process is less harsh than other methods and won’t damage your skin. Instead of leaving with irritated or inflamed skin, after a sugaring session, you’ll walk out feeling refreshed and silky smooth.

Full-Service Sugaring Salon

At L.A. Bikini we offer hair removal services from your head all the way to your toes. We’re talking brows, facial, full/half arms and legs, and more! Our signature service is The LA Bikini – an alternative to the brazilian. Don’t think we’re just for the ladies! Our Hoover and Plano locations offer services for men, including the Men’s LA, beard shaping, and facial grooming.  Not only does sugaring remove unwanted hair and leave your skin feeling silky smooth, but it can help to permanently reduce hair growth! The more you sugar the less you end up having to go in the long run. How sweet is that? After your visit to L.A. Bikini, you’ll want to show off your beautiful skin. What goes better with smooth skin than a great tan?

Make the Most of Wedding Season with L.A. Bikini

LA B_wedding_blog Get excited, ladies! It’s wedding season, the time of year you get to dress elegantly from head to toe and celebrate love with your closest friends! Make the most of wedding season this year. Check out these tips and tricks to prepare from L.A. Bikini.

Know Your Timeline

As you begin to prepare, lay out your timeline. Prioritize what needs to get done, and in what order. Here is what our experts suggest:

#1: Find your dress!

We all know this is the most fun part of the entire experience! If you’re not part of the wedding party, you get to pick a dress all on your own. Take your sister or your best friend and enjoy the day together trying on dresses and feeling beautiful! An expensive dress is not always the best dress. Pick out something that flatters your figure, makes you feel comfortable, and fits your personality.

#2: Pick out a hairstyle and makeup look.

Once you’ve decided on a dress, think about what hair and makeup will best complement your face, your dress, and your custom spray tan. The easiest way to do this is to conduct a good, old-fashioned image search. Use the neckline, style, or color of your dress paired with key terms like your hair length. For example, you could search for “sweetheart neckline short updo” or “red dress makeup.” LA_B_prom_hair_blog

#3: Decide on a photo location.

Take advantage of the moment. It’s not every day you get all dressed up. Grab your date and pick a scenic location that will highlight your beautiful look. Anywhere with beautiful architecture like a church provides for a stunning background. Floral and green areas are good, too.

Pamper Yourself, Girl!

Look and feel your best. Weeks before the big event, rejuvenate with some all-natural treatments you can do at home. The week of, treat yourself to a little mani-pedi. Pick a color that matches your dress and your makeup. Then, head over to L.A. Bikini to take advantage of our introductory offer and receive a discounted mud treatment. Finish off your studio visit with a sugaring treatment for the smoothest, sexiest legs, and a custom spray tan to get that perfect glow. Learn more about the services available at L.A. Bikini today that will help uncover the most beautiful you this wedding season. Contact our professionals!

Your Hair Removal Guide

Stop waxing in BirminghamHair removal is not exactly fun, and today there are so many different methods out there. How do you choose which one is best? It seems all hair removal has one thing in common: it hurts. But, no pain, no game? That is not necessarily true! There are some affordable and less painful and time-consume methods out there. Needing hair removal, but unsure of the method? L.A. Bikini has everything you need to know.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal destroys your hair at the roots using light. Many claim laser hair removal is permanent. However, usually the hair simply gets lighter and finer. The amount of hair may go down as well. Generally, this method is pretty painful. Depending on your level of pain tolerance, it compares to being hit continuously by a snapping rubber band. Furthermore, laser hair removal is one of the most expensive methods. On average, laser hair removal costs between $200 to $1000 per treatment (yes, it takes more than one). Cost varies depending on the area (bikini, face, arms, legs, etc.). Usually, laser hair removal lasts about six months.


The most common method of hair removal, shaving works best for hair removal immediately with little to no pain (unless you nick yourself. Be careful!). Do make sure that you have the right shaving cream and razor to save yourself from irritation and razor burn. Shaving is also relatively inexpensive in comparison to other methods. Most razors and new blades cost under $20. However, because shaving lasts about one to two days (maybe three), you are out purchasing products often and we all know that shaving every other day just isn’t fun. In short, shaving is the least expensive and the least painful, but the most time-consuming and least effective. For this reason, a lot of us look to other options like waxing and sugaring.


Waxing removes hair from the root, so it lasts longer than shaving. However, it also hurts more – way more. Why? Hot wax is applied to your skin which sticks to your hairs. Then, a thin cloth is laid over the hot wax and ripped off, pulling out the hairs in the opposite direction of hair growth. The average bikini waxing can cost anywhere from $40 to $60 depending on where you choose to go for your waxing service. Hair doesn’t grow back for about three to six weeks.


Sugaring is a lot like waxing, but is much better. Sugaring hair removal involves an all-natural and even edible paste. The sugar paste is applied to skin and then removed in the same direction as hair growth. Sugaring hair removal is far less painful than wax! The sugar paste does not stick to your skin, it only sticks to the unwanted hair. Additionally, the paste is not hot. The average bikini sugaring is between between $35 to $65, depending on the area you are getting sugared. As many of our customers have found, sugaring is better than waxing – providing better long-term benefits and a lot less discomfort.
