Electric epilators have rotating heads that grasp the hairs and pull them from the follicle. This method is slower than waxing, as it can't pull many hairs at the same time.

Waxing is when you apply a layer of either hot or cold wax directly on the skin, which then you quickly pulling with the help of a piece of cloth. It's fast end effective but it's also painful. People who use waxing on a regular basis say after the first several times the body gets somewhat used to the pain.

Sugaring is very similar to waxing. The only difference is that you use sugar-based substance instead of wax.

Tweezing refers to hair removal using tweezers to pluck hair from the follicle. It's an effective method but it's very slow at achieving the final task.

Laser refers to a method in which a beam of laser light is projected on your skin. This beam is then attracted by the dark color of the hair. It also causes permanent damage to the follicle. Although the laser hair removal is pain-free there are some limitations to it. First, it mainly works on dark hairs and fair skins. If you are dark tanned the laser hair removal will not be very effective. Second, there aren't strong evidences that this method provides a real permanent hair removal. Third, it's quite expensive.

Photo Epilation, also known as pulsed laser, is a newer method, very similar to the laser hair removal procedure. A pulsed light beam is used to destroy the follicle's ability to produce new hair. This method is effective for any colors and types of skin but might be quite expensive, too.

In the electrolysis each hair is treated individually. A needle-like device is injected into the follicle and then an electric charge is run through it. This way the follicle roots are permanently damaged. This is a very effective method, but it's somewhat painful and it's also very slow.
