Frequently Asked Questions
Do a lot of men get waxed? What kind of men do you usually see?
YES! and ALL types. Waxing is becoming more and more popular these days and we see men in every walk of life. From college students wanting to get rid of some back hair before heading to the lake, to the newlywed - getting a full brazilian for his wife. We see athletes who say it makes them more comfortable (such as swimmers, bikers, or even wrestlers). We've had moms bring in their teen sons for unibrow maintenance to men in their 60's or even 70's that just want to spice things up with brazilian waxing. Young, old, married, single, athletic, not.
What are the most popular areas to get waxed?
Our number one men's service would be a full back wax, second is nose/ears, and third is the male brazilian.
Is it really THAT painful, like 40 year old virgin painful?!
Don't let the famous scene in that movie scare you away.
A smooth finish will make you feel confident and 10 years younger. We are a unisex salon, so there is no reason to feel uncomfortable or nervous. We do this all the time.
How often do I need to come in?
YES! For most body areas, the regrowth is pretty slow. You are usually looking at 4-6 weeks. We want to get all your hair onto a growth cycle that gives best results so its important not to wait too long between appointments. Just make sure that if you are used to keeping it shaven or trimmed down, we need a couple weeks of growth..
What is the most painful area to get waxed?
We would have to say the Chest/stomach. Mostly the chest. Unfortunately, it just happens to be very sensitive and usually pretty coarse hair. Take a couple ibuprofen and arrive early to purchase "Numb It" which is a topical numbing cream. It won't make it painless, but it sure takes the edge off!

Elixr Wax Bar has a STRICT "no funny business" policy. We believe that every man has the right to be waxed, but we also believe that our Waxperts deserve to perform their job in a safe, respectable environment.
There is no room for inappropriate conversation or behavior & while men might get aroused- we understand this, but it is not normal protocol, nor is it necessary. We have professional ladies here so please be respectful.
