Waxing and the removal of unsightly body hair is no longer solely a pursuit for women, swimmers, bodybuilders and models. Everybody’s doing it.

For men, it’s called “manscaping” and it’s the practice of removing excess body hair via waxing, shaving and plucking. We know, it sounds frightening – but it really isn’t anything to fear or feel embarrassed about. Here’s everything you need to know about manscaping.

The basics of manscaping

Why should you manscape? Well, why do women remove their body hair? Because it makes them look and feel great, of course – and it may have the same effect for you. Removing unseemly hair from your body will enhance your muscle definition and make your body look and feel smoother.

Unfortunately, the same razor that you use on your face just isn’t going to cut it (pardon the pun) when it comes to shaving your chest and other parts of your body. Instead, you’ll need to buy an electric hair trimmer from a home appliance store.

It’s a great idea to start off small, removing only a little bit of hair from your body to see what it looks like rather than removing it all in one fell swoop. Just trim it a bit for your first time.

If you want to remove all of the hair, waxing is often a better choice because it’s a longer lasting method of hair removal. For some people the hair won’t grow back for up to two months and, when it does, it’ll be softer and thinner. Over time, repeatedly waxed areas will grow back even slower.

Getting started

If it’s your first time manscaping, it might be a good idea to consult a professional – after all, sometimes it can be difficult to shave or wax hard-to-reach places like your back.

New Zealand hair removal specialists are used to working with men as well as women. Consult the Yellow Pages and book a time to get unseemly hair removed. Alternatively, many beauty therapy providers and specialists provide hair removal and waxing services. For the full effect, you might as well get a men’s beauty treatment while you’re there.

Waxing can be painful, too. So if you’re planning to remove large amounts of hair with wax in particular, you really should consult a professional . If you insist on waxing yourself, at least consult with your local pharmacist before grabbing any old hair removal lotion or wax from the shelf.

Finally, if you do need to manscape below the belt, please, do NOT use wax. We shouldn’t need to tell you this, but that part of the body is often extremely sensitive – so do be careful and use your electric hair trimmer down there instead!
