The bonus: Three weeks of smoothness, since it pulls out the root.
Best for: Dark, coarse hair and those who get stubble or shadow immediately after shaving.
Avoid if: You can't stand any stubble, since you need a quarter to a half inch of hair in order to get a good wax. Also prepare for moderate pain when the wax is pulled off. Finally, the expense -- $30 to $60 average per month.
