Today's topic of conversation: pre-wax intimate wipes. Oh the glamour.
I provide wipes for all of my intimate waxing clients to use prior to their treatment. It doesn’t matter if they have come straight from the shower or spent all day climbing mountains - if it’s a hot sunny day, they’ve rushed to get to the appointment or are feeling a little nervous, everyone gets a bit sweaty in these situations and the opportunity to freshen up before their wax is appreciated by clients.
Perhaps more to the point, it’s also appreciated by me, as I'm the person about to spend the next 20 minutes within sniffing distance of their bits and bobs.

Tight clothing is the enemy of freshly waxed skin. Encourage customers to skip the skinny jeans and posh pants for any below-the-belt appointments: that skin-hugging fabric is only going to rub in all the wrong places.
And for back and chest waxing, ask your male clients to bring a clean cotton t-shirt with them to change into after their treatment. This can go a long way towards reducing any post-pluck irritation, especially in hot sticky weather or if he is coming to you straight from work in a collar and tie.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
I was reminded of the above advice from waxing legend Lori Nestore last week, and it's the perfect inspiration for when you're feeling overwhelmed with the task ahead.

I get asked this a lot. Short answer: no.
Most waxes 'for men' are nothing more than regular wax with a ‘manly' colour and fragrance. It's all marketing.

Ingrown hairs… the bane of waxers worldwide. Prevention is certainly better than cure here, but surprisingly few clients realise that it’s a 2-step process: SCRUB and SLICK.
