Waxing…no longer for the girls!

Waxing is just as much for men as it is for women!

waxing.men.2Men have come a long way since the days of showing up to work in an unbuttoned button-down that revealed an army of hair fighting its way past the nape of their necks — haven’t they? While they may not go the Brazilian route, you might be surprised (or not) to hear that men are taking it off — their body hair, that is.

Maybe it’s weather-related. Or she’s hinting at it. Or, men have been curious about how they’d look with less hair? Whatever the motivation, men have already arrived at this point. Between waxing, shaving, or tweezing – men of all ages, sizes, sexual orientations, ethnic backgrounds, and professions are getting rid of excess body hair.

We wanted to bring these hair removal trends for men to your attention.

Waxing:

What is it? Waxing is a hair removal trend for men that involves spreading hot wax on to the desired area, and then applying a strip of cloth or muslin onto the wax, rubbing it, and ripping off the strip in one fell swoop — wax, hair, root, and all.
Men are also booking appointments at salons or spas for eyebrow waxes. With guys like David Beckham boasting nicely shaped brows, it seems men aren’t settling for less. Guys, this really isn’t about becoming a pretty boy — it’s about not walking around with a unibrow. Makes sense. Don’t aim for a perfectly arched eyebrow, but waxing is a good way to get rid of eyebrows that are out of control.
Ideal parts to wax: Eyebrows (unibrow), back of neck, back, chest, toes, and knuckles
Pain factor: 8/10
Bottom line: With repeated use, hair gradually becomes thinner because the roots are weakened, but the hair will grow back, albeit at longer intervals. So, if you want to lessen the hair that grows on your toes or chest without permanently abolishing it, this would be the ideal way to go.

Tweezing

What is it? With the help of a trusty pair of tweezers (the sharper, the better), pluck away at the hairs you want to eliminate.

Unless you have lots of time on your hands and can take the constant pinching sensation, save the tweezing for those smaller regions that are covered with excess hair (or for ingrown hairs). Of course, this method is far from permanent.

Ideal parts to pluck: Eyebrows (unibrow), nape of neck
Pain factor: 4/10
Bottom line: Spending more for high-quality tweezers is worth the price. Don’t forget to keep up with regular maintenance.

Between the various hair removal trends for men, there is no reason for a guy to let his pubic area grow out of control or his unibrow to attract attention. You could always stick to shaving, but there are some areas that require more care and shaving can cause irritation and razor burn.

Try the method that best suits your needs and your budget.
