In this economy, why spend $30 or more on a professional leg wax when you can do it yourself? I have many friends who wax their own legs with store-bought wax kits and I recently discovered a recipe for sugaring on the Double X Website for women.
Editor Hanna Rosin shares the recipe her family used to remove arm hair (they were hairy Sephardic Jews, according to Rosin). While you can buy wax kits in any drugstore, cooking your own sugaring mixture over the stove can save an extra few dollars. Full disclosure: I have not tried this myself because I once bought a sugaring kit and it was the messiest, most annoying self-improvement project I'd ever tried. But if you want to go for it try the recipe in How to Make Your Own Homemade Sugar Wax.
