In these enlightened times, it is not only women who get waxed. Male Hair Removal is extremely popular, partly driven by the aspirational look of the male models and sport stars in designer underpants looming down from billboards and magazines. There is no getting away from it guys, the hair-free look is the look of now. No longer just something that body builders and the like undertake, it seems male hair removal is on the increase.
Of all the various different types of male hair removal, waxing for men is one of the most popular. It is accessible, the effects last longer than shaving, and you get a smooth finish. So, if you have never had a male wax before, or maybe have had a bad experience, what are the things that might concern you, or questions you may have when considering waxing?
There are plenty of people who will tell you how painful it was when they tried it. Images of reality tv shows featuring waxing and screaming men, or that infamous scene in "40 Year Old Virgin" where Steve Carrell has his chest waxed, paint a bad picture. However, the reality is that with anything in life there are good experiences and bad experiences. If you are getting waxed for the first time you should try and find an experienced beauty therapist, who has specific experience waxing men.
