Personal reasons, more hygienic, sports related benefits for athletes, improved appearance, eliminated stubble growth, enhanced muscle definition, smooth look & feel – to name a few. Plus, why shave every day

Wax in the City staff are highly trained in all areas of waxing. Knowing how not to bruise and tear your skin comes with experience and using the right product to get the best results.

Each person varies some 3 weeks some longer, but we recommend regular waxing appointments every 4 weeks. It all depends on how smooth and hair free you want to when you can be free for up to 4 weeks!!!

They sure do and just as much as women and why not, Men want to be smooth too!!!

New clients always get anxious about this as it can happen, but it does pass quite quickly and does not affect the treatment itself. However, any inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave. This is a professional waxing studio and we only remove hair!!

The back and chest are areas that commonly break out after waxing. If you have a tendency to have a reaction from shaving then you are more likely to have the same reactions to waxing. Using the correct home care and having regular waxing on these areas will minimize reactions.

If you have a contagious skin condition you will have to wait till it has completely cleared up. If you are using Roaccutane you must wait for 6 months after you have finished your medication. We cannot remove hair from areas that have been treated with steroid cream Retin-A, Differin or other retin- oid acne products within the last 3 months.

Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Your first time will generally hurt the most then after that each subsequent wax will become easier as there will be less hair to remove so will not be as uncomfortable. A lot of clients do mention that the experience isn’t as bad as they thought it would be.

Taking a couple of Ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment can help reduce the discomfort.

It can be uncomfortable but most men say it isn’t as painful as they anticipated. When performed correctly, it is rare for the skin to come off.

A minimum of 1cm/1/4″ long – or make your appointment 3 weeks after your last shave.
Please do not be tempted to trim yourself if your bush is overgrown, leave that all to us, we don’t want you to be taking too much off and not getting the end result you want.

Please shower if possible. If you are coming straight from work then freshen up wipes are provided if needed.
