Waxing for men is a growing sector of the grooming industry and whereas years ago no manly man would ever consider even trimming his hair it is no totally acceptable to get a back wax to take the kids swimming, pluck the middle of your brows and give them a light trim and also sport has seen an increase in the need to remove intimate hair to reduce chaffing during running or bike rides.
Cyclists benefit hugely from removing leg and intimate hair as “saddle sore” can really pose a problem to those guys who enjoy lengthy outings on their bikes.
The majority of body builders need a full body wax pre competition (taken the day before rest day and a week pre competition).
The latest need for hair removal is the evolution of tattoos and the “sleeve”. Why let someone shave it with a blunt bic when you can have the area hair free during healing time? Regular arm waxes also keep the tattoo looking fresh without suffering itchy stubble.
