Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re unsure of what to request, check out these diagrams that explain what areas are included in each service. You may also add or subtract areas for a custom look – the zones are numbered for your convenience. Ask when scheduling about the cost of custom services.

Q: Why is waxing a better option for men’s hair removal?

A: Skin stays smoother longer when you have unwanted hair removed with waxing by a well-trained esthetician. Regrowth is slower and softer, and less irritating than shaving. A smooth body makes your skin look firmer, your muscles more defined, and is inviting to touch

Q: What areas can be waxed?

A: Waxing is effective on just about any area except the head and beard. Back, shoulders, chest, stomach, ears, nostrils, and especially the “mankini” area all feel and look better when they are smooth and hair-free. Swimmers and bicyclists improve performance by keeping legs hair free. That “unibrow” look can be separated into two distinct brows. Many men overlook the growth on their ears and in their nostrils that are noticeable to others when close-up.

We will wax any body part other than the head and beard, with professional demeanor and no judgment. If you want it to be smooth, we’ll make it smooth!

Q: What are the options for “below the belt”?

A:  Depending on your preference, as much or as little hair can be removed as you’d like, but here are our most common services. They can be adjusted to your liking.

  • Men’s bikini or ManKini – removes visible hair from around the leg openings of a swimsuit, or a bit higher for an extended bikini.
  • Men’s Brazilian (sometimes called ManZilian or BroZilian) – removes hair from front and back, leaving a strip or patch of hair in the front.
  • Bald Eagle – goes totally bare from front to back.

We do our best to put you at ease, and have seen it all. If an unexpected physical response should occur during your service, as sometimes happens, we are professional, unfazed, and will not make you feel embarrassment. We are all business, so there is no funny business!

Q: Is there anything I need to know after I leave?

A:   Although we apply calming lotion after your treatment, skin will be sensitive for a while, perhaps 24 hours. During that time you should avoid tanning and chlorine. Intimate contact with your skin may cause irritation as well, so schedule your appointment a day before your romantic activity.

Q: How often will I need upkeep?

A: Repeated visits within a 4-6 week window make waxing easier and less painful, and keep you looking your best. For the Men’s Bikini, Men’s Brazilian, or Bald Eagle, we give a discount if you return in that time for maintenance, to encourage your continued upkeep.
