Waxing…. That one word that can strike fear in men, creating a vision of horror! Men envision the ripping off of flesh and pain.  However, it doesn’t have to be a Horror flick.  Wax grooming is something that most men could benefit from. Men have the option of waxing several areas.

 

Nose

Men tend to have larger nostrils and more of a propensity for hairy nostrils. As a result, they often benefit even more from nose hair waxing than women. Another benefit is to define a line between facial hair and nose hair, so you can prevent that unattractive blending of the two. Surprising it is virtually painless.

 

Beards

Men who have beards and like that crisp clean edge can achieve this with waxing.  In addition, waxing decreases ingrown hairs and razor bumps as well the ease the need to shave as frequently because it removes the hair from the root. 

 

Backs/Chests

Unable to reach your back or shoulders? Waxing these larger areas is clean and efficient.  We do the work for you. Shaving can leave your skin itchy and irritated. When waxing you will experience a minor sting and the skin may be red for a couple of hours however, the skin will be far less irritated and smooth.

 

One important point to make is there are many different kinds of wax. Not all wax is necessarily created equal. We predominantly use a high quality hard wax. It is more universal and has a propensity to effectively take off coarse dense hair with less discomfort. Soft wax tends to pull at the skin, making it more uncomfortable. This wax is better suited for soft, downy, peach fuzz like hair. We are experts in waxing and ensure our wax and technique are of the highest quality to make you as comfortable as possible.

 

Still nervous? Try waxing a small patch or do only a single area such as your nose. This approach is usually less intimidating and allows you to get a sense for just how a wax actually feels. Afterward, you’ll have to switch up your routine just for a day.  You will need to avoid working out/sweating. Heavy sweating immediately after a wax will irritate the pores which are still open due to the wax. Clogging these pores with sweat will cause you to breakout with acne. Better to take the day off then trade your hair for acne….
