An epilator is an electrical hair removal device that removes hair from the root. The tweezers grab hair and pull it out. There can be approximately 20 to 100 tweezers on an epilator, so the epilator can pull out 2 to 4 times the hair with each short pass.
Waxing is the process of applying a soft or hard wax on skin in the direction of hair growth and then removing the hair from its roots by quickly pulling the wax off.

Using an epilator is very easy. You plug it in or it is battery powered and ready to go. Pass the epilator on your skin against the hair growth and it will remove double-digit numbers of hairs with each pass.
With wax, you have to do some planning to get ready for waxing. Namely, you need to warm your wax which can take 5-15 minutes depending on the wax.
If your account for warming up wax, the epilator can remove hair faster. However, once the wax is warmed up, an experienced waxer will remove hair just as fast as someone who uses epilators regularly.Leave a comment!
