A note from our Aesthetician:
Manscaping: to groom a man. Shaving, waxing, cleaning up the superfluous fur. Fellas, when your lady refers to you as a beast, she's not referring strictly to your temperament. It's summer time in Chicago and that means lots of opportunity to be shirtless at the beach, riding your bicycle or just because you feel like it. So how much is too much body hair to be proud of? In a society where metrosexuals run rampant, can a guy still be proud of his burly chest hair? Yes! However, just like we need to trim the hedges in the yard, facial and body hair need to be kept in check as well.
Let's start with the face. Men need their brows groomed too and often times don't know where to start. DO NOT take a razor to the middle of your brows unless your desire is to resemble Richie Rich. Your brows should have an appropriate space between them, not a hole wide enough to rent. Ear and nose hair is a concern as well. Bring your handsome face to Thairapy Plus and let a pro take over.
Waxing is a fantastic alternative to shaving. With one treatment you can be hair free for up to two weeks. Body hair can be a touchy subject. I know some men think of their chest and back hair as the embodiment of masculinity and consider the trimming or waxing as a service reserved for the females of the world. Not so. Waxing has become a popular service among men and can make a huge difference about how you feel about yourself when showing off your beach body.
Appropriate grooming can actually enhance your musculature and keep you cooler during the warmer months. This isn't sweater weather! Back hair can look patchy and uneven on the majority of men out there (and trust us, it does!). Waxing it can be liberating! Even if you plan on keeping your chest hair, you should still make the effort to trim with clippers, just make sure you're using the right guard.
Not only can a trained Aesthetician help you man-icure your body hair, she can also help take care of your skin. We offer a wonderful back facial that helps clear up a pesky break out and offers a dose of TLC to skin that often gets neglected. Come on guys, you know you want to come in! Our private Treatment room is the perfect place to inconspicuously take care of yourself and your manscaping needs. Call or email today to book your appointment.
On your Mark!
