Men�s grooming is a multi-million pound industry these days and is supported by strong TV advertising right across the world. Of special interest is the trend of smoother skin for men as an important element for the well-groomed man.

Waxing for men involves hair removal by spreading hot wax onto the desired area plus then applying a strip of cloth to that specific area. The next stage is rubbing it and ripping off the strip in a swift motion.  Beauty salons Leamington

There are many wax brands on the market however there are only two main families of wax types. and these are called Strip Wax (hot or soft wax) and Hard Wax ( stripless wax and cold wax)
Strip Wax is heated quite warm, applied as thinly as possible, and then a cloth or paper strip is applied to the area and rubbed or pressed to adhere it to the wax and then ripped off quickly. Its main advantages are speed and exfoliation since it removes the outer layer of skin. Strip Wax should never be reapplied to an area as you could remove additional layers of skin. Soft wax is usually used on legs, arms, back, chest, and shoulders.

Hard Wax on the other hand melts at just over body temperature. Then it is applied like frosting, turning opaque and at this point it is peeled off. Its advantages are a low melt temperature with less burn risk plus it can be also be reapplied to an area. This method is far less painful than most and pulls hair directly from the roots.

Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for up to 6 weeks which is a big plus in grooming terms and more importantly areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is much softer and more manageable.

It�s important that there is at least half an inch of hair for the waxing to be effective because hair must be long enough for the wax to stick to for effective removal. The first time waxing takes place is always more uncomfortable than later waxes but as treatments continue the treatments will be less painful since the body now has new smaller hairs.
