Waxing Isn’t Just for Women

Ok, we’re going to have a little talk about waxing. Not you, ladies. This one’s for the boys. So if you have boyfriends, friends, brothers, nephews, sons or any other dude who’s looking a little furry, we’re gonna help you get the conversation going. Or better yet, share this article with them!

First, it helps to acknowledge a simple fact: manscaping is in. Blessedly, manscaping as a trend has been around for a few years now and isn’t going anywhere soon. Even guys who rock the lumberjack look have embraced a cleaner vibe, keeping things well-trimmed and groomed. But in general, regular eyebrow and sideburn waxes are a great way to look neat without a whole lot of effort.

Waxing isn’t just about looks though. There are a number of benefits to having a good wax, especially when compare to shaving. Such as…

Waxing Lasts Longer Than Shaving

Whether it’s brows, arms, legs or back, waxing is significantly more effective at longer-term hair removal than shaving. Since waxing removes hair at the root below the skin, regrowth takes much longer—about 3-6 weeks depending on hair type and thickness. So instead of doing daily or weekly touch ups, a one-time wax will keep skin smooth for weeks.

No Nicks or Cuts (Especially in Sensitive Areas)

No amount of safety precautions can change the fact that shaving involves dragging a sharp razor across delicate skin. When you’re bending this way and that to reach all the nooks and crannies, a nick is almost guaranteed, especially if you’re using a dull razor. The premium wax we use at Ella Bliss may have a little sting at first, but then you’re all good.

Save Money on Razors

Is it just us or are razor prices absolutely bonkers? Waxing in general, especially with an Ella Bliss membership could save you boatloads of money on razors over a year. You need a razor for your face. Everywhere else? Wax away!

Waxing Can Be Good for Your Skin

Because wax is applied to the skin along with hair, it actually has an exfoliating effect. As the wax dries on skin, it traps dead skin along with it. So as the wax strip is pulled off, so is the dead skin. And since you only need to wax every 3-6 weeks, it’s a nice regular exfoliation without being to frequent.

Skin Is Silky, Soft and Touchable

The exfoliation we talked about above leaves skin feeling so silky smooth for weeks. Tell your guy this: give a girl a choice between a hairy back and a smooth, hairless back. What do you think she’d choose?

So How Do You Get Him In?

Ok, here’s the hard part—getting him in to see an Ella Bliss waxer. Here’s one suggestion—make it a double! Schedule him for eyebrows when you’re getting your eyebrows. And if he complains that it might hurt, look him dead in the eye and tell him how many times you’ve done it.

Above all though, make sure you reward him by telling him how good he looks—and how manly he still looks, as well!
