Although it isn’t as common, men can benefit from waxing too, including the removal of your unwanted hair this beach season. So if you’re a man thinking about removing unwanted hair or more specifically “fuzz”, here’s a beginner’s guide to how it works.
What to Expect Before Your Wax
So you’ve decided to get that wax. Knowing what to expect is vital to the quality of your experience.
1) Expect to Wait
As soon as you enter the door, you’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire in case you’re a new client. Try to relax as you wait for your waxer to call you in. Don’t be startled when you hear loud music, or even worse, if you see other waxers dancing in a bikini. Relax, this is all just part of the experience.
2) Don’t Worry About What You’re Wearing
You may feel uncomfortable because you’re not in your normal clothes, but try to leave that at the door. The waxers are professional and will treat you like anyone else.
If you’re really uncomfortable, you can cover up with a sheet. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get an awesome wax.
3) Just Relax
The waxers will warn you to not move or flinch, or the wax won’t work. Relax, this is their job. Take deep, relaxing breaths. If you’re uncomfortable, let them know. This is important to your experience because it takes waxing skills to remove your hair with their tools. And, the slower and more precise they are, the less pain you will have.
What Happens During the Wax?
The waxer will apply warm wax with a spatula over your desired area of hair removal. Then, they’ll rip the wax off in one quick movement. You’ll be asked to take several deep breaths during the process.
They’ll then remove the excess hair with a cloth or tool. This may be the most uncomfortable part but don’t worry, the pain isn’t that bad and it’ll be over soon.
They’ll then apply lotion or gel to the area. The waxer will then press their fingers against the skin to make sure that they are free of bumps or redness.
How Much Will It Hurt?
Waxing isn’t a walk in the park. You can expect to experience a little pain. But, it’s not excruciating. The waxers do have numbing creams available if you don’t have a high tolerance for pain. They’ll let you know what works best for you.
To make sure it’s a comfortable experience, you’re going to want to make sure you’re ready for the wax. Don’t eat a large meal before your session. And, make sure you’re hydrated. If you’re nervous, it will make the experience more uncomfortable. Try to relax by taking deep breaths and listening to music.
Waxing is an uncomfortable experience for many. But, it’s not excruciating pain. So, if you have been holding out on that wax, don’t be afraid to go ahead and get yours done. The waxers are trained professionals who know just how to handle any situations that may come up. They will make you feel comfortable and make sure your first experience is a memorable one.
