Home / Our News / More Men Are Getting Waxed

Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the amount of men who are choosing waxing over shaving. This is a natural progression as there has also been a huge increase in male grooming in general. In the past, it was considered unmasculine to remove the hair from your body, but as culture changes it has not only become acceptable but preferred by a growing number of men each year. This is probably most due to their partners preferring the look of smooth skin and a well groomed body. As cultural ideals towards what is attractive change and evolve, so will the methods that these ideals are reached, which is why so many men who began shaving their bodies a few years ago are now switching over to waxing as the hair removal method.

Waxing is simply better than shaving when it comes to maintaining a smooth appearance for a longer timeframe, as well as being far better for our skin. For many men who have shaved their faces for many years, shaving their bodies provides experiences that they were not counting on. The skin on areas of your body which have never been exposed to hair removal techniques is quite soft and sensitive, and shaving will tend to cause a large amount of itching and ingrown hairs for a long period of time. Because men will not typically shave their bodies with the same regularity that they shave their faces, this period of adjustment to shaving can literally take years. Each time that you shave you are left with numerous days of itching and ingrown hairs. Waxing, on the other hand, removes the entire hair follicle from the shaft. This provides a far longer timeframe before the hair has grown long enough to break free of the skin, and therefore giving you far longer periods in between waxing sessions. Waxing also allows the hair to regrow in a natural shape instead of a blunted one, which will allow the hair to come through the surface of the skin more effectively. This translates to far less itching and ingrown hairs after waxing.

Many men are considering waxing for it’s benefits, but may be hesitant due to the fact that pulling the hairs from your body causes pain. While this is certainly the case, the pain of a professional wax is actually far less than you might expect. Because you will significantly reduce the itching that comes with razor stubble on body areas that come in contact with clothing or rub together, you will probably experience far less pain over time than you would through shaving anyway. At the end of the day, a little pain for a brief period of time is far better than a lot of pain extended over days.
