I specialise in Male waxing and indeed train others in the art of waxing guys.

This is the most common question I get asked. In short no not really. There is a slight sting when the hair is removed, but other then that no.

Some areas are more painful then others, but nothing that is unbearable.

I do body sugaring which is much gentle method than waxing without skin irritation after a treatment. All my guys love it. And painful? Every single person has different pain threshold, you have to only pick up your courage and try it. Some people think is like a massage, some feel discomfort at the beginning till you get use to it. Good luck! :)

I also do male waxing in Solihull, at the begining yes but it doesn't last long and the more times you have waxing then the less painful (ish) it is. failing that you could also try shaving or clippers, but it doesn't last as long as you don't get the root out.

Hi dritchie,
Waxing is a little uncomfortable yes, there is a slight sting but I wouldn't call it painful, if you put a sticky plaster on your hairy leg or arm and pull it off, the sensation you feel is very similar to waxing, but the more you have waxing done the more you get used to it :o)

Been waxing for more than 20yrs now and specialise in male waxing for 11 and I wou,d say everyone has a different pain threshold but you have to try in order to find out. I will say this... we would t all be in business if it was that bad. Do your research and go somewhere good as a bad wax could put you off altogether sadly. Good luck

It should never be sore after!!! Good luck
