I'm Italian. I have 'old Italian lady' hair popping up where I'd rather it didn't. So I've tried it all. Waxing was too expensive for my blood. And I didn't like having to wait for it to get longish to do it again. I've used a few different epilators with limited success. Nair worked well on some areas and not so well on others.

I finally just went back to the fast, easy, cheap way of removing hair.
Eyebrows and chin hair - tweeze
Legs, underarms - shave (I actually enjoy shaving, cheap mens 2-blade razors)
Ladybits - I shave parts of it and trim up parts with scissors, sometimes making a design
I also have an inexpensive cordless electric razor for quick touch ups
