    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 info@WaxingtheCity.com a free nose wax! Try it out guys- you will love it!

    New Year = New You! 

    Projected Trends For 2011:


    Now that the New Year has arrived, we want to make sure that you all are on trend for what’s hot and what’s not for 2011. And, seeing that we’re pretty well tapped into the fashion, health and beauty scenes, we wanted to take this opportunity to make some of our own predictions for what's to come in 2011!



    2011 Trends For The Ladies:

    • Bold eye make-up is huge for 2011. Be creative and dramatic and opt for all-out fluorescent eyes in sorbet shades; experiment with a swipe of vivid green liner or a fluorescent orange shadow at the outer corners of your eyes.
    • Each year it seems that we see the bikini get smaller and smaller and 2011 will not be any different. This year, we will continue to see “scrunch” bottoms, whereas bikini tops will stay mildly conservative. Make sure you are prepped for those tiny bottoms with a bikini wax!
    • Delete the tawny, earth-toned blush, eye and lip colors and get a sun-kissed Seventies glow instead for 2011.
    • Get rid of those defiantly bold and bushy eyebrows of 2010 and swap them for a pair of strong but groomed eyebrows that are all the rage for 2011.

     
    2011 Trends For The Fellas:

    • The 2011 man is attentive to his looks more than ever, becoming a considerable market share for plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgery clinics. Men are getting Botox shots, getting waxed and getting more invasive cosmetic treatments such as rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and hair transplants.
    • Men are also booking appointments at salons or spas for eyebrow waxes. With guys like David Beckham boasting nicely shaped brows, it seems men aren't settling for less. Guys, this really isn't about becoming a pretty-boy -- it's about not walking around with a unibrow.
    • Manscaping: As goes with the 2011 trend of ‘less,’ men all over the U.S. are aiming for less body hair. We all know that back, ear and nose hair have always been out, but 2011 will be the year to more widely eliminate chest hair and minimize, um, “down there.”
