Why Male Waxing Trends are on the Rise

Waxing isn't just for the ladies anymore.

Believe it or not, male waxing trends have been on the rise in recent years as more men are hopping on the waxing bandwagon. It makes sense, both women AND men have to deal with unwanted body hair they want gone, so why not wax it? There's no need for embarrassment anymore now that men everywhere are going to their nearest waxing spa to have a professional take care of it for them.

Male Waxing Trends

If you thought male waxing was reserved for metrosexuals, think again. Men of all different backgrounds, social classes, ethnicities and professions are purposely losing the hair. Those who are athletes and spend hours a day in the gym are realizing now that waxing their chest enhances their muscle definition. Men who are runners or swimmers wax to help shed minutes off their times and to remove any skin irritation caused by friction.

Guys are also opening up to the idea of "manscaping" as their girlfriends or wives have encouraged them to "clean it up," and every man wants to make his special lady happy, right? Usually men come back after their first time getting waxed because they realize they're more confident after they have eliminated some form of embarrassing body hair.

Why get a wax instead of shave? Waxing is lower maintanance, and more efficient. When you shave, you are only cutting off the tip of the hair follicle meaning your hair starts to grow back immediately. Waxing removes the entire hair follicle, which means it takes much longer for hair to grow back. Plus, when it finally does grow back, your hair comes back much thinner so you won't need to remove it as often. Waxing also means you don't have to deal with annoying and painful ingrown hairs, razor burn and red bumps that are brought about by shaving.

Male waxing isn't just a temporary fad, it's here to stay. Men are becoming more confident, pleasing their significant others, and wasting less time shaving every day. It has now become the most efficient hair removal option for both women and men. Discover the best ways to control your body hair with our different waxing services available for men here.
