"The Boyzilian Wax is fast becoming a prime part of the modern male's grooming standard."
With an increase in male grooming trends, more men are taking the plunge and daring to bare. Men are losing it, from their chest to their nether regions.
"It is the fear of the unknown" says Head therapist Chloe from Ministry of Waxing; "Men don’t know what to experience, they haven’t done a DIY job like women".
"The most popular treatment is the chest and fingers and hands for the board room, and feet and toes for holidays. A lot more men are having the famous ‘Boyzilian' as it's much more hygienic," reports Chloe.
We have seen a rise in the number of men booking in for the Boyzilian and women booking this in for their partners; as Ministry of Waxing say 'Upsize in just forty minutes with the Boyzilian'. Chloe also tell us that "usually men come back after the first time because waxing makes you feel more confident by eliminating ingrown hairs caused by shaving."
For the modern man, getting his crowning glory trimmed can make or break a look. So who's to say that a Boyzilian should be any different? Harvesting an entire wilderness in your nether regions is no longer the look du jour. The Boyzilian Wax is fast becoming a prime part of the modern male's grooming standard. With a variety of cuts and styles to choose from, here's The Truth About Male Waxing:
Does it hurt?
One of the first questions, we're asked. First off we apply rescue remedy to the tongue to comfort and calm nerves, and a squeezy toy is given to all customers. We work with the client to reduce pain by specific breathing techniques; the waxing strip is pulled off as the client breathes out as muscles are totally relaxed at this phase (pain is caused when muscles are tensed). For the treatment we use our signature flavour wax; strawberry that packs in the healing powers of chamomile and aloe vera to calm and soothe skin or coconut that grips around the hair for better removal with less pain. So there you have it, nothing to worry about and we'll make your first time the best time.
What is the Boyzilian?
We’ll often speak to the customer about their desired look and lifestyle for the best suited treatment. A full XXXX Boyzilian includes public bone, scrotum, penis and crack, whereas the XXX leaves some hair on the public bone - some gentleman prefer to leave a triangle or everything still on to match their chest hair and just want to tidy up everything underneath. An X or XX will subtly neaten your undergrowth and trim unsightly hair for a new burst of confidence.
Waxing is a long lasting hair removal method, lasting between 3 and 6 weeks. When hair re-grows, it is finer and softer unlike shaving which results in rough stubble just days later. Waxing also works as a gentle exfoliant to remove dead cells, leaving skin smooth.
How long does waxing take?
It varies from treatment to treatment from 10 minutes for brows and 40 minutes for the Boyzilian. Some like it fast, others like it slow and nurturing.
Is waxing the best method of hair removal?
An increasing number of men are also coming in for IPL on facial areas including cheekbones and neck for a permanently groomed beard style. IPL will give you a longer lasting hair removal solution. It is an advanced and semi-permanent hair reduction method. Beams of specially filtered light are used to disintegrate hair from the root. New hair growth is delayed and a percentage of hair may not re-grow.
