The new forum has several enhanced features to help you find what you need:

Tips for finding what you need fast

I have put together some tips to help you find the information you want as quickly as possible:

Search feature

For the most complete results, I recommend the following settings when performing a search:

Forums(s) to search: choose All Forums

Keyword search terms: choose in subject and body

Date range: set to Newer than 4 Years for the most responses, and make the number smaller for only the most recent responses.

Another cool option is Username search to list all posts by a certain user. Some of our contributors are professionals or very knowledgeable consumers.

User List

This lists the thousands of HairTell members, and can be sorted however you want. By click on Total Posts at the top of that column so that the are listed by highest number of posts, you can see our top contributors. Most of the people on that list are reliable sources of information. I’ll let you check it out and decide for yourself.

Other useful and fun features

My Home

Right under the HairTell logo and your name is a link to the My Home page for setting preferences on your account. Under Main configuration, you can make all sorts of customized changes to your account. Just click the Edit button on the right side of the page to make changes.

Personal information: add a signature, change your email, add a bio, let others see when you are online.

Display preferences: Play around with style sheets, how you want the threads to appear, and other great “look and feel” options.

Subscribe/unsubscribe: lets you know when topics of interest to you are discussed. You can also turn off any forums you don’t want to read.

Mature Topics
HairTell has a section for hair removal of a personal nature. By visiting, you affirm you are 18 or older and wish to view information on this topic.

Premium-only categories
Subscribers will find eight new categories with original content and up-to the minute news on in-depth topics requested by Premium members. You can also join our dedicated team of consumers and professionals who know everything there is to know about hair removal “down there,” if that’s an interest. You can also view streaming videos and other materials designed for professionals and consumers who value in-depth information.


We have just added an option for those who want to share photos. While any reader can view photos, only Premium members can post them.

Email notification
If there are forums you don't wish to follow, or if you'd like to receive emailed notifications of new posts, you can make those changes here:

View recent messages
At the bottom of the page is a helpful feature if you haven’t been on for a few days and want to see posts from the Past 24 hours, or even the past week.

Mark all posts as read

Today our illustrious tech whiz added a number of other enhanced features, and I have made a slight policy change.

New features

- Spell check: hit the "Check Spelling" button next to the "Continue" button when creating a new post.

- Extended time for editing posts (Premium members can always edit posts)

- Information on HairTell mailing address

- Private messaging

- Practitioner locator

Negative consumer reports about practitioners

This forum is primarily set up to help you decide on a method and get the most out of it. Now that I have made a practitioner locator section, I am implementing a new policy. Consumers are welcome to recommend practitioners with whom they have had first-hand experience, but negative experiences and warnings need to be documented in one of the following ways:
- Letter from lawyer on letterhead
- File at Better Business Bureau
- Complaint to trade group
- Complaint to regulatory agency
- Report in the media
- Report from law enforcement agencies (criminal issues)
- Report from regulatory agencies (licensing issues)

This will help verify claims and help protect practitioners from unsubstantiated claims. I also hope it will be incentive for readers to work with regulatory groups to help resolve unsatisfactory experiences. If you need any assistance finding legal help or finding the appropriategroup for your complaint, please post your question, and I will do what I can to assist you!

I hope these new features make the forum even more useful to everyone!
