Here at WAX Hair Removal Bar, we see so many “first time” male clients that we have compiled this FAQ to answer our most encountered queries. If you have a question that is not answered below, please feel free to email or call and speak personally to a Waxpert or Receptionist.
Men’s Waxing (Bro-zilian) FAQ
Q: How long does my hair need to be?
A: The Ideal length for waxing is about the length of a grain of rice. With skilled techniques, it is possible for us to wax hairs as short as 3 days post shave. However, because of the hair growth cycles/ way our hair grows, shaving soon before or in between waxing appointments can cause new hairs to grow up outside of the skin much sooner than if we are waxing hair the size of rice. If your hair is longer than about an inch, we recommend trimming to ensure your waxing is more comfortable.
Q: Is there anything I need to do to prepare before my appointment?
A: A bit of a gentle exfoliation in the shower before your appointment is a good idea. Feel free to take an over the counter pain killer of your choice about an hour before your appointment if you are nervous.
Q: What will happen when I get there?
A: If it is your first visit at our location, you will be asked to fill out a consultation form. Your Waxpert will then take you to the treatment room and instruct you how to get ready and then leave the room while you undress and get on the waxing bed.
Q: What do I wear during the appointment?
A: For intimate areas, clients are asked to remove everything off from the waist down. You will be provided with a small towel to drape yourself. Otherwise, wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Q: What positions will I be in for the waxing?
A: We do 99.9% of clients intimate area waxing with you reclined on your back. Your Waxpert may have you assist them in anchoring your skin and draping at various times, she will give instructions in the room if this is the case. We aim for client comfort in all of our waxing services, so no yoga poses needed!
Q: How long will it take?
A: Each client is different, but we aim to have you in and out the door in less than an hour. (Quick and painless is our goal!) See our “Services” menu for more detailed timelines per service.
Q: What if I get an erection during my Bro-zilian?
A: It isn’t uncommon for this to happen, and we never want to make anyone feel bad about their body. Our Waxperts are discrete, professional, and will treat you with respect. (We never encourage an erection, and we expect our clients to be respectful of their Waxpert.)
Q: What can I expect after my appointment?
A: Your skin may feel tender for 24 hours after waxing, especially if you have course or curly hair. (Taking an over the counter anti inflammatory pain killer will help with this.) As such, you will be asked to avoid hot water, and sweaty activities (these may be uncomfortable and could lead to break outs in the open hair follicles.) Please see our other Advice posts regarding this.
