Removal Trends

The topic of celebrity permanent hair removal is one that comes up more often than you’d think. After all, body hair is an issue that affects nearly everyone. Whether they’re strutting down the red carpet, making an Instagram post in a swimsuit on a boat, or filming a topless scene for their next movie, celebrities have a definite interest in keeping their body hair to a minimum. Julia Roberts created definite waves at the premiere of Notting Hill in 1999 when she revealed unshaven armpit hair. A statement that overshadowed even the red/pink sequined Vivienne Tam dress she was toting. Permanent hair removal is an investment that pays off in abundance. Electrolysis by Alison knows this better than most. We have been providing permanent hair removal for over fifteen years.

Celebrities Talk

Body Hair

While many celebrities are quietly and dutifully disposing of their unwanted hairs, others make a statement by flaunting theirs. While society has progressed since the 90s, it’s still easy for Miley Cyrus to grab a headline or two by showing off her dyed armpit hair. Similarly, Bella Thorne has often caused a splash on social media with her hairy legs or pits. Once, Thorne wrote ‘HAHAHHA [sic] NEVER’ in response to a male fan telling her to shave her legs. Not everyone is willing to make a statement this way, however. Many simply prefer the smooth sensation of a freshly waxed or permanently electrolyzed leg.

How Do Actors Get

Rid of Body Hair?

Actors, like many other celebrities, trade on their look. Unshaven legs can be catnip for paparazzi. Many rely on laser hair removal treatments— although this can be problematic, as laser hair removal is less effective on light hair for fairer-skinned people, or dark hair on darker-skinned people. It struggles particularly when it comes to removing baby hairs or ‘peach fuzz’. Famously, Kim Kardashian advocates for laser hair removal, having had it on her arms, bikini area, legs, and underarms. Eva Longoria is in favor of waxing pubic hair— though apparently more for sexual performance than for the cameras. Others use electrolysis: the only method of hair removal recognized as permanent by the FDA.

Do Celebrities

Get Electrolysis?

Yes. Celebrities with an interest in dealing with the problem of body hair on a permanent basis frequently opt for electrolysis. The benefits of electrolysis are manifold.


many celebrities lead an active schedule. Luckily, an electrolysis session clocks in at an hour, or less, depending on the area being treated. After the session, patients are able to go about their daily business with next to no discomfort or other side effects.

No Ingrown Hairs:

unlike the woes of tweezing, threading, or waxing, electrolysis doesn’t snap the hair and cause ingrown hairs to grow in. The pain and unpleasantness of a snaggly ingrown hair getting trapped under your skin and causing an infection can be at an end. Electrolysis was actually initially developed to remove ingrown hair. You can count on electrolysis to help fix problems caused by other, less effective depilatory methods.


as backed by the FDA, the process of electrolysis completely disables a hair follicle’s ability to grow hair. While waxing needs to be repeated at least once a month, electrolysis will free you from the whole painful cycle. Laser hair removal often claims to offer the same thing, but the fact is that often follicles will recover from the unfocused attention of laser treatment and begin producing hair once more. Only electrolysis is effective in neutralizing each active follicle in an area.


once you’ve decided that you don’t have any use for your pubic hair or armpit hair, it can work out as considerably cheaper over a lifetime to have them zapped rather than repeatedly paying for waxing sessions or even the supplies to do it yourself at home.
