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? We offer airbrush spray tans custom to your choice of glow, whether you are looking for sun-kissed skin or a deep bronzed look, we’ve got you covered!

Fall Fashion: Layers and Accessories Galore

custom airbrush spray tan As you prepare for colder weather, the simplest way to start is by making sure you invest in quality fall/winter essentials. You can then layer these pieces to create multiple outfits. Your style is the best style, so wear what keeps you warm and makes you feel comfortable. To help you with the right ensemble, here are some ideas.

Begin with Basics

Start with a fitted, lightweight long sleeve shirt. This can be a turtleneck, a v-neck, or a simple crew neck top. This innermost, lightest layer will help to keep you warm and yet not hot or sweaty. Pick a material that suits your skin. Cotton is generally the lightest and most comfortable, but if you find that you prefer a moisture-wicking material most usually found in athletic gear, go with that!

Stay on Top of Things

Your next step is to layer items on top of that shirt. For a stylish and comfortable piece, try a blanket sweater or oversized cardigan. You can pair those with long necklaces, jeans to keep those flawlessly smooth legs warm, and fall boots for an effortlessly fashionable fall look. Another option is vests. Fleece, patterned, solid, and quilted vests can give your look more texture and color as well as keep you warm where you need it most. Paired with a skirt, tights, and heels or corduroy pants and booties, this look can be both chic and casual.

Always Accessorize

The best way to make any simple outfit have a little more pizazz is to throw on some accessories. For comfort and warmth, pick a cute scarf. For warmer days, dress up your neckline with a necklace or long earrings. A simple matching belt and shoes combination is a guaranteed success. Bracelets and other jewelry can give your outfit a little shine, and a cute hair piece or hat can accentuate your quirky style.

Spray Tan Tips for the Perfect Experience

Spray Tanning Birmingham, Dallas, and Mobile Getting a spray tan is all about enhancing what you already hav – bringing out your natural beauty. Give your beautiful skin a healthy glow all year long – long after summer ends. Follow these key spray tan tips below to ensure you get the perfect spray tan each and every time!

Choosing the Right Color

Choosing the right shade can be difficult. It all depends on your skin tone and what skin tone you are looking to achieve.  If you have fairer skin – in other words if you burn instead of tan – it is best to stick with a pretty light shade for your spray tan to give you a natural look. Many articles with spray tan tips may suggest picking a shade three to four shades darker than your skin tone in order to get the most for your money. However, in order to maintain a natural look, you want to think of your spray tan as a glow. A healthy glow is only a bit darker, a couple of shades than the beautiful skin you’re already in. So, if you have slightly darker than fair skin, like a light tan, two shades darker is ideal. You’ll get a perfect sun-kissed look like you’ve just spent the weekend relaxing on a boat in the middle of the Pacific. If you are looking for a slightly olive tan, like Selena Gomez or Kim Kardashian, think about going a bit darker to enhance the color  you already have with an olive or caramel shade. Need help choosing the right color? L.A. Bikini can consult with you to help you get the perfect tan for any season!

Prepare Your Skin

Most spray tans take 15-20 minutes. Many spray tan salons involve a small booth with misting nozzles. At salons like L.A. Bikini, your experience is more personal. An experienced technician will provide a custom spray tan helping to ensure your tan is evenly applied and that you do not come out looking orange. For a smooth, even tan, prepare before your visit. Shave, wax, or opt for the least painful, most organic option of hair removal: sugaring! Get healthy skin. Exfoliate, but don’t put on too much lotion or oil. You don’t want anything to be between your skin and the spray tan or it may not stick smoothly.
