H1Salon Waxing South of the Border

The word is out: waxing isn't just for women these days – an increasing number of men are going to waxing salons for face waxes, chest waxes or even arm and leg waxing. Some men are even going for smooth scrotums, referred to as a male bikini wax, a male Brazilian, a Manzilian, a Brozilian or a Boyzilian. But is all that manscaping worth it? Is it macho?

You don't have to decide now. If you do, go for a little adventure. That's more manly than playing Bigfoot. Put it on a must-do list, in fact. Look sexy and feel good.

Let's start with something simple: the brow wax. It has been something for women only, but this eyebrow wax is now the norm for menof all kinds. Carefully groomed brows can help you take advantage of your natural good looks, and the waxed man brow is attractive to ladies (and maybe other guys).

Noses and ears are up next. As guys get older, body hair of all varieties gets thicker (if only this were also true up top). When it's growing from ears and nostrils, you might look a little barbaric. Get that spurt of hair into place with nostril or ear waxing, or you can use trimmers and tweezers. Get a lasting, smooth look, I recommend the waxing option.

Know, this, though: skip waxing the facial cheeks and chin! This manly hair is very thick like fur. You're more likely to have the results of a skinned cat than a charming guy if you go this route. Rather, keep to regular shaving or indulge in a trip to the barber. Often, waxing salons for men do straight-razor shaves.

Throughout most of human history, body hair was just hair. It was a sign of masculinity, and you were endowed with fur or not. Now, the amount and grooming of body hair more relevant, say the expert aestheticians at mens waxing salon.

Let's take a few steps downstairs for a moment. If you want to reach the highest echelons of male hotness, head to So. Cal. There, movie stars pull tricks such as waxing the hip lines to appear slimmer while leaving ab hair to make washboard abs stand out (or seem to stand out). To really drip with masculinity, the celebrities wax the whole package.

If you haven't ever tried waxing, do it. It's not really too painful. Becoming all smooth and hairless could just be that bucket list item that you'll want to go for again and again.
