There are several cost-saving methods to remove hair: shaving, epilation, and waxing. Though pocket-friendly, the effects do not last long and they tend to cause side effects like ingrown hair and itch as well.

If you are looking for more permanent solutions to your hairy woes, you might want to consider going for semi-permanent hair removal treatments at a beauty salon.

Datsumo Labo comes from Japan and prides itself in being a top class hair removal salon, with reasonable prices. It has more than 80 branches globally and each comes equipped with therapists that hold a Full Body Hair Removal License.

This salon uses the Smooth Skin Control (S.S.C.) Hair Removal, a technology that claims to yield better results than IPL; it is safer, less painful and the effects are more long-lasting.

However, there are quibbles about their less than satisfactory customer service so proceed with caution and make sure you read all the terms stated on Datsumo Labo’s website thoroughly before making a decision.

One client also pointed out that the salon designs are as basic as they come, so you might want to give it a miss if you’re looking for a aesthetically pleasing hair removal salon.

Prices start from S$228 for six sessions on smaller areas to S$24,228 for 22 areas in 18 sessions.

Why Strip?

Strip is quite possibly the most well-known hair removal salon in Singapore, and has outlets in Singapore, London, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Manila, and Bangkok. It places a lot of focus on technique and hygiene.

The salon recently introduced AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) Powerpac Hair Removal, dubbed the next generation of IPL treatment technology.

Co-developed with Alma Laser, an expert in light-based hair removal technology, AFT is said to deliver a more targeted and precise treatment thanks to its usage of a narrower wavelength to deliver an even distribution of energy (this is compared to IPL hair removal, which uses a broad wavelength of light to disperse spikes of energy).

What’s more, the AFT machine comes with a built-in cooling system to provide a comfortable and painless hair removal experience.

While its services are probably among the most expensive in this list, there may be a reason for it. Reviewers say that the treatment is comfortable, quick, and delivers good results. There’s also a lot of appreciation for the level of hygiene and clear explanation during the session.

Check out what Daily Vanity readers’ reviews of Strip’s AFT hair removal.
