Hair removal is one of the core tenets of beauty and skin care as we know them. Whether that’s creating the perfect brow shape for your face, slipping on a bikini and thus eschewing any hair that would be visible as a result, or keeping your legs naked and glowing, there’s sometimes a lot of hair to continuously get rid of, if you’re into that sort of thing.
There’s no shortage of options when it comes to removing said hair either, including shaving, threading, tweezing, and waxing. But laser hair removal finesses them all in terms of permanence, cost, and overall time spent. While it’s a method that can be used by people of all complexions, a lingering hesitation has existed within the Black community over the last few decades.
