Reasons Men Should Schedule Regular Salon Appointments

It is important for men to do self-care before the wedding day and even if you are not getting married. You owe it to yourself to allow time for pampering and relaxation just as much as the ladies do.

Self-care, mani-pedis, waxing, and all sorts of personal care services are commonly associated with women only. Society used to think "vanity" is feminine, rendering many men to shy away from salons in fear of judgement, despite being plagued by their unwanted body hair problems.
But now, in the 21st century, a lot of double standards are being scraped off, including men's self-care.Waxing salons and wellness centers in Sandy, Utah, and other cities have been offering their services to men, encouraging the male population to be more confident about grooming.

What the Studies Say

OnePoll conducted a research onhow men feel about their body hair, and out of the 2,000 men they interviewed, 55% said they were ashamed of it, and nearly 25% said they feel haunted by their body hairs.

About a third of the participants avoided swimming out of embarrassment of their body hairs, while another quarter steered clear of the gym. Almost 1 in 5 men also reported that their body hairs hinder intimacy in their love lives.

On grooming, 48% disclosed that they do not practice the best routines, and 43% said they're not confident enough in their own grooming skills. 62% admitted to never shaving their backs, and more than half confessed that they've never gotten rid of their leg hairs. They only shave their facial hairs, according to 56% of the participants.

Grooming Services All Men Shouldn't Be Ashamed to Try

Since it turns out that a good number of men lack confidence in their own grooming skills, they can definitely use a professional's help. But barbershop and salon appointments should be considered by all men, regardless of their grooming abilities. After all, who wouldn't love a few minutes to a few hours of just sitting and letting trained hands do magic on their hairs?

Here are some grooming services all men can benefit from:

  1. Beard Trim - Unkempt beards keep you from looking your best, so manage it by having a beard trim from time to time. This will keep the length and thickness of your beard in proportion with your face, resulting in a tidier and more balanced appearance.
  1. Manicure - Men's hands and fingernails need pampering, too. Don't shy away from a manicure session because smooth hands and trimmed nails are important in all professions.
  1. Straight Razor Shave - This is a traditional shaving practice without the use of shaving cream. Let trained hands do the honors for you as you sit back and relax. This will leave you with a more precise shave and a smoother face.
  1. Waxing - If you're fed up with cuts and bumps from shaving, then it's time to transition to waxing. Wax gets rid of stubborn and coarse hairs in any areas of your body. Just let your body hair grow at least one-quarter of an inch before your appointment for the wax to adhere better and be more effective.
  1. Scalp Massage - Just like any massage, a scalp massage also induces relaxation and helps release happy hormones. You totally deserve this after a hard day's work!
  1. Facial Massage - Men should be concerned about their skins, too. A facial massage will give your skin the right treatment to make it refreshed and rejuvenated. Your face might get a little red after the session, but it's only a reaction that should face fast.
Hair Removal Popularity Among Men

Athletes and metrosexuals aren't the only ones getting theirbody hair removedthese days. Men of all professions and sexual orientations are now encouraged to clean up. Waxing salons have seen a surge in male clients by up to 30% this year. The rise in popularity may have come from renowned celebrities like David Beckham, who seems to contribute to the hairless trend among men. Moreover, men are also convinced by their wives or girlfriends to get waxing services.

It turns out men who tried waxing liked it better than shaving because it's less time consuming and the results are better. If you've been insecure about your body hair, too, don't hesitate to book an appointment to the nearest waxing salon.
