2022’s 10 Hottest Hair Removal Tools from Lasers To Glitter

Epilfree – Wu Aesthetics – Bryght + Box Naturals are taking your mom’s bikini wax to a whole new level!  In 2022 we’re going to upgrade your game – even over what we did in our 2021 Hair Removal Guide.

The Hair Removal Game Is Getting An Upgrade in 2022

Hair removal in the 90’s was the dirty little secret in the spa and it was pretty “wax-centric”. 

Clients whispered in hushed tones when they arrived, “I’m here for my bikini wax.”  Waxing was always at the very bottom of the treatment menu and not something that was ever advertised or showcased.

Spas in the 80’s and 90’s were all about luxurious relaxation for rich ladies. There was nothing luxurious about getting all of your body hair ripped out by the root – so we just hid that in the back room and didn’t talk about it.

Now you can speed wax your way to success right out in the open!


Then, between 2005 and 2015 there was a shift, and hair removal (still pretty much waxing focused) became more of a treatment that spas saw could drive revenue, thanks in part to a little place called Brazil! The Brazilian wax became hugely popular and waxing became something we all were talking about. Here’s where we all genuflect to Lori Nestore, HRH, The Wax Queen. She’s done more mainstreaming the waxing industry in the United States than any other person out there.

Over the past 5 years, hair removal has morphed from a few lines of text on a menu that was a dirty little secret into large signs in the front window showcasing Vagacials!

“Step right up! Welcome to the new millennium, look at your vagina – do you love it? We can make it spectacular – we’ll remove the hair, with wax or sugar or a soy alternative – we’ll add glitter and after the hair is gone – we’ll bleach it to make sure it’s got a perfectly even skin tone! Then we’ll apply a mask to make sure it’s cool as a cucumber!”

There IS no more shame in being a woman who wants her entire body to be exactly as she would like it to be.

I believe it was Queen Bae who said, “Girls… who run the world….”! Mhm, and they all know they have spending power and they can get – get what they want!

Laser Hair Reduction

One of the most sophisticated methods to treat unwanted body hair. The Anima Forza Tri-Diode Laser is good for every single Fitzpatrick AND can be done year-round. It is virtually painless and we can attest to that as Barry’s had several pain-free sessions!

The Forza is a Triple wavelength diode laser, this makes it safe and effective for all Fitzpatrick skin types. The Forza features 755,808, and 1064 wavelengths making it the gold standard for hair removal. By incorporating multiple wavelengths and technologies, it not only enables professionals to treat a wide range of hair types but also enables patients to enjoy a comfortable treatment process and an effective clinical outcome.

Forza diode laser penetrates deep into the dermis and is absorbed by melanin in the hair follicles. The laser energy is converted into thermal energy, which damages the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue for effective hair removal. With its 1200W power, the Forza emits strong pulses to destroy the deep root of the hair follicle. The pulses, although strong, are very short, so they only destroy the hair follicle. Keeping the surrounding tissue free from damage.

The Forza is an almost pain-free hair removal experience for your clients; it features a sapphire glass cooling window that cools to -4 degrees Celsius, thus keeping your client comfortable throughout the treatment. That means fast results with a high degree of comfort. The cooling effect also helps to protect the skin from any damage.

Bikini, Brazilian, Legs, Backs, and Chests

Want to upgrade your hair removal game? Then let us give you some advice. First, make sure you’re using a product that rocks! It used to be a wax game, but now there are sugar, soy alternatives and so many different types of wax. Let us break it down for you.

If you’re doing a lot of Brazilian waxes you probably want a great hard wax, we’ve found a few that we think deserve your attention. If you’re doing a lot of legs and backs, check out a great roll-on wax. Finally, we even have a plant-based wax alternative!


Upgrade Your Hard Wax

Hypoallergenic Wax
Bombshell Wax has their Simpli Zen Hard Wax, hypoallergenic hard wax in bulk, so every client that walks into your room leaves with smooth skin! This wax glides right on; plus, it’s fragrance-free, so you never have to worry about clients having a negative skin reaction.

Dermatologist Tested Wax
Wu Aesthetics has their Emerald Gold Luxury Wax, it took owner Monique two years to develop this with her European manufacturer. This wax is dermatologist tested to make sure you can use it on your most sensitive clients on the most sensitive parts of the body.

Wound Healing – Anti-Inflammatory Wax
Beauty Image has their Madagascar Line enriched with Tamanu Oil. A vegan, eco-friendly wax that you can feel good about using that is enriched with Tamanu Oil has wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Talk about taking good care of the downstairs during a Brazilian! But this is also available in a soft wax and a roll-on!

Have You Ever Smelled A Brazilian Rose?

Since we’re on the topic of Brazilian waxings, we found something that we think will take every one of your bikini and Brazilian waxes up 2, maybe even 3 levels! If you have been in the hair removal game for a minute, then you’ve had the opportunity to experience a whole bunch of situations in the “downstairs” that may not have been “ready” for a waxing service.

We can solve that! Just offer every client a Box Naturals Luxe Intimate Towelette when they check in and tell them that they can freshen up before their service! Box Naturals are available in Rose, Lavender, and Cucumber / Witch Hazel. You’re welcome!

Speed Your Way To Sales

When it comes to large areas of the body – chest, back, and legs, speed waxing is how you can really make some bucks in the hair removal game! Nothing is easier than using NaturaVerde Pro’s roll-on cartridges to roll wax on the entire leg and remove it in under 5 minutes – yes, we’ve seen it done! Elise, a trainer for NaturaVerde Pro did a speed wax demo for us! Use the Double Roll-On Cartridge Wax Warmer with any of their roll-on waxes.


All That Glitters

Ok, now we’re just here for some fun! If you want to make your waxing services a celebration, add a little glitter! We fell in love with the Mermaid Esty who created Glitter Wax Creations! Now you can put some pizazz into the wax and give your clients a little bit of shine when they’re getting a lip or leg wax! They’re available in multiple colors, are perfectly safe, and have been used by many nationally recognized leaders in the spa industry!

Plant-Based Alternative

One of the most popular wax alternatives out there is Nufree Nudesse! Jenni has been using it for years. It is carried by thousands of professional salons throughout the world. It was developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove hair from a patient before surgery. It doesn’t stick to the skin, it’s self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial so it’s safe, clean, and germ-free. It’s completely BOTANICAL and safe for the entire body! It doesn’t dry and can be erased at any time! Finally, Nufree Nudesse is scientifically tested and uses no animal product.


Would You Do Anal Bleaching? 

The hottest trend that we’re seeing is anal bleaching and vaginal brightening. Seriously, these treatments are so popular right now and the newest one that we’ve found is Bryght! We fell in love with their Anal Bleaching T-Shits in Las Vegas a few years ago!

Bryght’s Professional Skin Lyghtening line was made by professionals for professionals to reduce hyperpigmentation and is safe enough to be used even in the most intimate areas. The 4 step treatment, used with the Let There Be Lyght Wand, an LED device, corrects uneven skin tone, reduces discoloration visibly 1-3 shades Lyghter in the first treatment.
