Guys there’s no need to be bashful. The popularity of male waxing is growing and there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be well groomed. More men are opening up about hair removal and which parts of the body require the most attention. We are here to fill you in on everything you need to know about the manscaping trend.
Most men would probably prefer to try waxing from the privacy of their home, but we suggest going to a wax salon where they can make your waxing experience as comfortable as possible. The most popular areas of the body for men to wax are the chest, back, and the intimate area. At a wax salon they know the best techniques to remove hair from each part of the body and the appropriate products to use on the skin.
Tip number one, if you have thick and long body hair you can trim before going to your wax appointment. You’ll thank us later because this will make hair removal much less painful. Don’t trim too much though. Your hair will need to be between ¼ and ½ long for the wax specialist to effectively remove the hair. It’s better for it to be a little long rather than too short. Make sure that you don’t shave at least three weeks prior to your wax appointment to ensure the hair is long enough.
Prior to waxing take a shower to clean and exfoliate the areas of the skin you’ll be getting waxed. Do not apply any moisturizers, cologne, or oils to the skin because it is easier for hair to be removed from dry skin. Additionally, you can take pain medication 30 minutes before your appointment to help with the pain.
Yes, unfortunately there will be some pain involved. But it won’t hurt as much as you imagine. Pain varies depending on the area of the body being waxed and it only lasts a few seconds. After the wax strip is removed, the specialist will press down on the skin to help the pain subside quicker.
The reward will be silky smooth skin for up to three weeks. You won’t have to shave every day, and this will lessen the possibilities of ingrown hairs. Another benefit of waxing is that the hair will grow back slower, thinner, and less coarse. If you make it a routine the results will begin to last even longer.
