Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. To start, our most popular service by plurality would be the Brazillian waxing. After that, it would likely be a tie between the chest and back waxings.
The Brazillian wax is what grabs most of our clients' eyes because there are so few places that offer waxing in such a sensitive area for men. Waxing 4 Men has been doing Brazillian waxing for over 20 years! We can get you smooth and sexy for any occasion!
Back and chests are popular services as well. Our shop tailors to men, so obviously we're prepared for some hairy guys! Many of our first time clinets will tell us they'd been getting tired of shaving their chests or having their partner shave their back and as a result, they looked for a longer lasting, higher quality method of hair removal. That quality is exactly what Waxing 4 Men consistantly maintains with each and every client!
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Many people shy away from waxing because they're embarrased, afraid it's going to hurt, or they don't know enough about the service.
We'd like every man whose considered waxing to rest assured that there's nothing to be ashamed of. Waxing 4 Men employs the work of only the best estheticians in the Bay Area. Professionalism, discression, and client confort are our fortes. On that note, we'd like to share a few facts about waxing that may answer some questions.
Waxing is a method of hair removal that has been around for hundreds of years.
Waxing removes hairs from the root, and if that hair was in the growing or "anogen" phase, then it's likely that hair will never grow back after waxing!
Over the couse of three-5 years, waxing will dramaticallly reduce hair growth in the areas that recieve regular waxing.
The methods we use at Waxing 4 Men are faster, less painful, and more effective than most waxing salons.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Steven has been waxing, facials, massage, shaving & trimming men for over 20 yrs and very good at what he does!
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. "Does it hurt? Will I break out? What do I do to maintain it? How long does waxing last? Is this any better than shaving?"
We hear these questions all the time in our studio! for starters, all waxing hurts, however that pain level can vary greatly between different estheticians. Waxing 4 Men's method minimizes pain, maximizes efficiency, and shortens service time, although we always recommend an aspirin before coming in (Or a couple shots ;-) ), this will definitely help with waxing pain!
In laymen's terms, waxing is simple: put sticky stuff on hair, pull sticky stuff, hair sticks to sticky stuff and comes out! What's really happening is a mild trauma to hair follicles at the root level. Because waxing opens up these follicles, there's a chance sweat, dirt, and debris can enter the pore and allow bacteria to fester. We do our best to minimize bacteria growth and make sure our clients keep the waxed skin as clean as possible. If ingrown hairs or blemishes persist, than mechanical exfoliation with a loofah or fine pumice stone will help.
We give each of our clients a little homework after each service. In order to keep waxed areas clean, we encourage our clients to spray alcohol over the areas three times a day, for three days after waxing. This helps prevent red bumps and breakouts.
The effectiveness of waxing greatly depends on the client's hair and skin. Normally, waxing will last about 4-6 weeks before hair growth is noticeable again. This beats shaving by at least 3 weeks! Another, less commonly known fact is that waxing makes hair grow back thinner and slower, shaving will make hairs grow faster and thicker.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. Linda recently served a client who promptly left her an awesome yelp review.
Here's the posting we found on our page, the following Tuesday:
"Wow! Linda was really amazing!
Not usually a 'Yelper' but def a Yelp reader. I am Bay Area born and raised, that has been transplanted to NYC for the last 4 years. Being in NY, I have quickly become familiar with waxing and the all 'man-scaping' tasks that entails. I am timidly comfortable and almost at ease with the pain that usually comes with the procedure, Linda @ Waxing for Men, changed that. Not only was there no pain, but the her comfort level and her knowledge of the procedures really put me at ease. She was very personable, professional and made the experience really a pleasure. With the conversation and the questions about myself to get herself familiar, I almost forgot what I was there to do. My only complaint... Is that Linda does not work in NYC. I will def be back my next visit to the Bay."
We're so proud of Linda for keeping up all our best values at Waxing 4 Men: Quality Service, Client Comfort, Experienced Knowledge.
