Read This Man!, Before You decide to Waxing Your Body


Bruhh, before you grab the wax and go to the town, it's best to know exactly what you're in for and how exactly it should be done. Actually, it's nowhere near as bad as the image in your head. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Truly. Here's how you can turn waxing from a red, hair-coated nightmare into a pain-free, hair-free dream.

But here's the thing: if you're determined to remove your hair, it's gotta come off somehow. And it's no simple feat to get the razor to hit the right spot on your back or to avoid an itchy, irritated chest. The only way to stave off those two painful phenomena is a good, old-fashioned wax. Remember that man. :D

Calm Down, it doesn't hurt that bad

Part of the pain is a mental game. If you go in and you're all tense and you're thinking it's horrible, it becomes a less enjoyable service. Instead, got into your wax with a positive or, at the very least, a realistic attitude. It's not going to be nearly as painful as it looks or sounds. It's particularly helpful if you've done your research beforehand and the salon environment is relaxing.

Beware, There are different kinds of wax

Not all wax is necessarily created equal. Hard wax, which Wax Club uses predominantly, tends to take off more of the hair and it's less painful. Hard wax also tends to be more universal, best for different types or quantities of hair.

Soft wax, which is most commonly found on strips, tends to rip off the skin, making it more painful than its counterpart. Soft wax is better for removing fine hair. Whether you're going to the salon or doing it at home, be mindful of which type of wax you're using.


You'll have to switch up your routine a little bit

Immediately after you get a wax, you should avoid working out. And by avoid working out, we mean that it's a must that you skip the gym for the day. If you sweat too heavily into the open, irritated pores, you're going to end up with back acne like you've never seen before.

There are ways to prepare beforehand if you're nervous

Yes, you could go with the usual pre-wax hacks of grabbing a shot of your favorite beverage. Those things won't necessarily hurt, but the most foolproof way to face your fear is to do it head-on.

Try waxing a small patch or do only one single, less intimidating area in order to make sure you're comfortable. Want to get everything below the belt waxed off? Try just doing your back first or only having a small area done in preparation. You'll get a sense of just how a wax actually feels.

More and more men are choosing to get waxed

Thousands of people search for phrases like 'body waxing for men' and 'waxing for men' every month. Body hair is becoming increasingly personal and arguably. Men are also continuing to embrace healthy ideas like wellness and self-care. More and more men are coming into the salon than ever before. Why? There is a myriad of reasons.

Some men do it because they're in sports and some men do it because they like the look, some men have never even thought of it, but we're finding that afterward, they love that clean feeling. They're not as sweaty or it's just much better. No matter the exact reason why men are getting waxed, they're doing it in pretty considerable amounts.

It'll be even easier next time

Once you wax the first time, your skin becomes used to the feeling. If you keep going, your skin will only continue to become increasingly acclimated to the practice. In fact, the exfoliating processes actually make your skin smoother and softer, which is always a plus.

With each session, you'll likely be more and more prepared physically and mentally. Look at it as a self-care practice and not an annoying chore or an obligatory ritual.
