    Facial Waxing

    Unwanted facial hair can be an annoying issue for both men and women. Look, the fact is: everyone has facial hair to one degree or another. Getting rid of it when you don’t want it is a hassle at best, an embarrassing problem at worse.
    And, let’s be real: for women it’s probably more than just annoying, It can be down right embarrassing and maybe even a source of great emotional distress. No woman wants to have a mustache on her face for the whole world to snicker about…isn’t there a special spot in the circus reserved for bearded ladies? And, even for men who prefer a clean-shaven look there is the struggle of coping with the negative side  (and inconvenience) of shaving.
    At Waxing the City we do a lot of facial waxing for both men and women to great success. We have a lot of very happy customers! Perhaps you’ve wondered what a facial wax is like, perhaps you have considered coming in but are a bit bashful and reticent. Well, we’re here to help and answer some of your questions:
    What Women Need To Know About Facial Hair Waxing

    • Facial waxing is good for your skin: Not only does it remove unwanted facial hair, but it also removes the top layer of dead skin cells on your face, making your face look brighter and more radiant.
    • It improves the appearance of your makeup: A big reason why many women hate their facial hair is because the texture and fuzziness of the hairs show up when foundation, bronzer or blush is applied to the face. By removing unwanted facial hair, women are able to apply makeup to a smooth silky skin without any “peach fuzz” getting in the way.
    • The myths are just that...MYTHS: Many women are hesitant to wax their facial hair because they’ve fallen for the old myth that their hair will grow back thicker and darker. Luckily, this is just a myth! It’s simply not true! (Actually it is just the opposite!) You can read our blog, “Breaking Those Pesky Waxing Myths” for more details about this topic.


    What Men Need To Know About Facial Hair Waxing

    • Get that manly brow! Many men avoid the salon for cleaning up an unruly unibrow because they are worried that brow shaping will look feminine. We’ve even heard of some men taking a razor to their brows. But, guys, this is only making matters worse and can create the strange square appearance that not only looks goofy but also doesn't last as long as a wax. But, with the right technician, we can make your brows look groomed and still masculine.
    • Back of the Neck:We women like a well-groomed man, and that includes taming those stray hairs on the back of the neck. Getting the back of the neck trimmed at the barber may clean it up, but it may not last until your next haircut. We consider this type of waxing facial waxing and it is a quick, easy and virtually painless way to stay groomed longer.
    • Nose and Ears: I am sure you all know men with no hair on their head but oddly they seem to have wacky crazy hair coming out of their ears and nose in all sorts of directions. Do you want to be that guy? Is your boyfriend that guy? I hope not! Ears and nose waxing is surprisingly fast and easy! While pulling one hair out of your nose may make you cry, waxing them all is actually a very pleasant experience. We have many guys try it once and get addicted!    

    Here is a special deal for our male readers: if you have never had your nose waxed, and you are new to Waxing the City, we will give the first 10 men who email us at a free nose wax! Try it out guys- you will love it!
