Gone are the days when waxing was meant only for women and a limited group of men in showbiz, bodybuilding, and other sports activity. The heterosexual man today opts for body waxing because that makes them look more attractive. Men from various professions are getting their chest and back waxed, but it doesn’t just end there, as many males go for even whole body waxing. Be it for the hygiene, to impress the girls, or for any other reason, male waxing is getting more and more popular.
When on one side, male waxing is being accepted and flaunted globally, there are still some bashful males who might want to learn more about male waxing before taking their chance at waxing. The following are some of the common questions answered related to men waxing:
What is male body waxing?
Male body waxing is the same as regular waxing. A thin layer of wax is applied on the area from where the undesired hair is to be removed, and then a strip of cloth is placed on the wax and ripped off in opposite direction so as remove the hair in one swift motion. The process is repeated until the entire area is hair-free.
What to expect after waxing?
If you are going for waxing for the first time, it might be painful. However, how painful it will be is subjected to many factors and varies from individual to individual. Waxing is better than shaving or using hair removal cream because they only cut the hair from the surface and not from the root. After waxing you can expect an elongated period of hair-free days as the re-growth will appear after three to four weeks. Again the hair that grows after waxing is thin and fragile, so the next session of waxing is much less painful.
What areas can be waxed?
This is another common question asked at the salons by men. Practically all parts of the body can be waxed from unibrows to the hair growing on toenails. However, one must seek the help of professionals when waxing for the first time and also remove hair from sensitive parts of the body. Though there are do-it-yourself waxing kits available in the market, it is better to take professional help, especially for male waxing because their skin and hair are thicker than that of women and a proper technique is required.
Who needs waxing?
Waxing for men is mostly dependent on personal aesthetics. So depending upon your own choice, you can decide whether to go for waxing or not and also how far to go. There are experts at male waxing who can make you thoroughly hair free from chest to toe or only wax your chest, back, and stomach. The choice is yours.
Now is the time to leave that shy and timid man behind and embrace the new trend in the male fashion world. Be bold, and the mighty forces will come to your aid!
