This page is intended to ease the worries of any of you blokes who are a bit nervous about waxing. We want you to know that the service(s) you’re interested in are perfectly safe and normal. For years, men have been removing body hair for a number of reasons such as athletics, a desire to feel sexier, etc. In fact, male waxing has become hugely popular in many salons and spas. From drill sergeants to famous athletes, dads, and A-list actors, more and more chaps are choosing to wax over any other hair removal method. Less irritating than shaving and more attractive than buzzing down, waxing also lasts a heck of a lot longer, cutting down on your daily hair removal regimen.
Still have questions? We’ve answered some of the most common ones here:
I’ve tried waxing my back and chest but those areas always break out with little red and white angry spots. What can I do to prevent this from happening?
Unfortunately this is quite common, especially on men with sensitive skin or coarse hair and deep roots. Many men only break out the first couple of times they wax. Once a person’s skin gets used to regular exfoliation and hair removal, breakouts often stop. We also take many precautions to prevent breakouts: After a wax, we treat the skin with antiseptic and antibacterial products. After this, we apply an additional solution to soothe irritation. We also recommend taking home a bottle of our Anti-Bac Attack and Buzz Off Bumps to further prevent these little breakouts from occurring.
I’m really paranoid about getting a…um…you know…stiffy during my wax. What happens if I do?
We’re all grown ups and professionals at Queen Bee (and we expect our clients to act like adults as well). We know erections can happen due to nerves. Don’t sweat it! Truthfully, we’re not going to acknowledge it anyway.
What’s up with male bikini waxing? I manscape my nether regions, but I’m wondering what’s involved in the BroZilian.
There are many reasons men, both straight and gay, choose to wax their bits. Some men have partners who prefer it, others like to feel clean, and many men who are athletic need those areas cleaned up for hygiene and safety reasons. We look at male bikini waxing the same way we view female bikini waxing: that it’s a perfectly acceptable form of grooming. Yes, there might be some discomfort associated with it. See How to Prepare (below) and follow our instructions for minimizing pain. If you’re nervous, ease yourself into male bikini waxing slowly by starting with a Butt Reynolds or Crack Daddy. It’s your body, you’re the customer, and we will do everything we can to make it a good experience! Our Bum-Ball Bees are all well trained and have a loyal male client following.
I want to wax my shoulders, perhaps even my bikini line, but I’m worried it will look weird. What do you do to make a wax look natural?
It’s all about blending and having an artistic eye. We won’t make the hair come to a blunt end or give you some crazy geometric shape you don’t want. A lot of men like the random patches of hair removed from the fronts, sides and backs of their shoulders. You’ll be given plenty of opportunity to tell us what you want, and don’t worry; we’re trained to know our stuff!
I’ve got lots of small patches of hair on my body that bother me. Can I book an appointment just for those?
Once you’re in the room with your esthetician, you may add some of the smaller services to your ticket as time permits.
How to Prepare for Your Brozilian Wax
- please shower before your appointment. We won’t spell it out… you catch our drift.
- hair must be a quarter of an inch (about 3-4 weeks of growth) to adhere correctly to the wax. This is particularly important for the scrotum area where hair can sometimes grow more slowly. If hair’s too short, we can’t wax that area.
- resist the urge to shave between sessions. Shaving chafes the skin and creates sharper, coarser hair!
- gently exfoliate your bikini line the night before your wax. Exfoliating the skin in this area will keep ingrown hairs at bay. It’s a good idea to make a habit of this, especially if you’re prone to ingrowns.
- know that it gets better. We get that first timers don’t know what to expect. My advice is to acknowledge that the first one will be the most uncomfortable, especially if you’ve been shaving prior to it. However, it doesn’t have to be the worst thing you’ve ever done. Most of the time, people leave our room pleasantly relieved that the wax wasn’t nearly as bad as they expected. Every wax after the first one gets easier, especially when your hair starts growing in finer and we weaken that horrid follicle!
- medicate if you must. if you’re concerned about the potential for pain, take a couple of advil 20 minutes before your appointment. Some clients feel this takes the edge off.
