Hello, hairless handsome! Gone are the days when women were the only ones lining up for a good wax. Male hair removal has skyrocketed in the past decade. In fact, we would say that the female-to-male waxing ratio is sitting almost at the 50/50 even zone. Surprised? Well, welcome to the new-age.
The Hair(less) Evolution
Back in the day, male body hair used to be seen as some sort of a powerful coat of armour – the bushier the better! From a full-bodied mustache (a la Tom Selleck), to a thick chest of hair. Men of all ages would actually strive to grow a dark thick mane.
Well, the times have changed!
Fast forward a few decades, and we have seen an absolute evolution in male grooming habits. It’s the norm nowadays for men to be barebacked beauties! Neat, clean, and smooth to the touch from head to toe!
Let’s just say, the trend has shifted to a less-is-more attitude when it comes to body hair.
Why wax, you ask? The positive pros absolutely outweigh the one tiny con. Remember, no pain no gain, right? By getting rid of unwanted, overgrown body hair has a number of surprising benefits.
Allow us to break it down.
Hygiene wise, bare is better! Sweat, bacteria and those other unwelcomed guests can settle into long hair, possibly causing an increase in unwanted odour and skin breakouts.
If you are the athletic type, cutting down on excess body hair can actually improve your sports performance! You will rarely, if ever, see a male cyclist or swimmer with a body full of hair. Smooth skin can help you run, swim, bike with greater ease. Hey, it may even improve your golf game so, why not give it a try?
Looking at it from a purely aesthetic view, most men these days would likely agree that it feels (and looks) a little better to be strolling down the beaches of Punta Cana, tanning a nicely-groomed beach bod. I mean, hello there golden god!
What areas are men saying goodbye to the ferocious fuzz? Essentially, everywhere. Virtually almost nothing is off limits when it comes to male hair removal. From neatly tailored eyebrows to full back & chest. These days there are hardly any no-wax zones.
And yes, that includes the delicate male areas as well. Need we say more?
Coming in for your first wax can seem nothing short of intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be!
Have no fear, our highly-trained estheticians will help you feel comfortable and at ease. You will receive only the highest quality of service combined with our strict health & sanitization standards. Not to mention, a sympathetic understanding of the sensitive male pain tolerance levels. Here at Fortelli, we have mastered the art of quick, easy, in-and-out hair removal.
As for pre-wax prep, simply come with your hair trimmed down to a manageable length for an easier removal process. Exfoliating before and after is beneficial as well and will help prevent any unwanted ingrowns.
Before you know it, you will be smooth as silk and ready to take on the world as a newly groomed modern man.
