Hello Tammy.

It depends how much time and money you have to spend on hair removal.  You may want to check this out in the Wiki for general information found here, and then have a look in the Links section on the main page.

There are many methods to remove hair from those areas you mentioned.  Some are more effective and longer lasting than others.  Some are quick and easy, others are a little harder to accomplish without professional help.

I think the quickest, cheapest, way is plain old shaving.  But like the other methods, there are draw backs.  The next is waxing or sugaring, following by the use of mechanical epilators, and then chemical epilators.  To top off the list you have laser, and electrolysis, but given the areas you want treated it would be very expensive to consider these last two options.

I'm sure that there is lots more advice to come, but do some research on the advantage and disadvantages of each method, and see which method appeals to you and go from there.

I've found a mechanical epilator to be the most economical and effective method (short of laser/electro). It pulls the hairs out completely, rather than just shaving them off at the surface, so you're smoother for a long time. Much less messy than waxing.

BUT! It hurts like heck. And the legs can take a long time to do.

Jillieann Rose:
I agree with Kate. I also use a mechanical epilator and it works real well. The first time I us it it hurts like he!!, but after that it didn't bother me much. Oh they say that it last up to 3 weeks, but for me it last about 4 days. But I hate stubble.
I still use a razer for my underarms and whenever I'm in a hurry. And a razer is great for touch-ups.
The chemical epilators I've tried don't work very well on my hair and often leave my skin feeling itchy. Some off the produces leave my skin red and raw where they have eaten into the skin but not the hair.
Never tried the waxing thing yet, but I do plan too.

I use a combination,

I have my legs waxed reguarly as I find the Epilator just takes some much time on my legs. I shave my chest and under arms.
