Body Trimming

Simply taking some of the length off of your body hair can make a world of difference and will give you a clean, “I take care of myself” look without completely sacrificing your natural, sexy masculinity. It works with all parts of your body. Chest, arms, legs, butt, belly, below the belt…just trimming the length a bit can enhance and define your best features, while maintaining that manly look. Body trimming is done with a simple pair of clippers and your choice of guard for length. Its very safe, quick and painless, and its a good place to start for those new to body grooming. You’ll still look like you, just a little cleaner. During your consultation you and your groomer will choose the length and style that best suits you.

Hair Removal

Trimming does a good job of cleaning up a manscaping3dy, but the only way to achieve that hairy body, but the only way to achieve that flawlessly smooth look and feel is to remove the hair altogether. We offer the age old treatment, body sugaring. Developed in ancient Egyptian and Arab culture, body sugaring is more effective and more hygienic than shaving or waxing and much less expensive than other hairremoval options. The effects typically last 4-6 weeks, with overall diminishing hair growth with continued treatments. The hair will come back thinner and finer with each treatment. Similar to waxing, sugaring removes the hair completely by the root. It is gentler and more effective than waxing because the hair is pulled in the direction of growth. This allows for less skin irritation and less hair breakage. The sugar paste used is made out of sugar. It is 100% natural, completely non-toxic and even edible! It is also very safe because it can be used at room temperature or warm up to 100 degrees fahrenheit, and it does not adhere to the skin like wax does. it will only adhere to hair and dead skin. The skin feels amazingly smooth after body sugaring! There is no need to trim hair before sugaring, and it can be done at hair lengths as short as 1/4 inch. However, pre-trimming can help, and it works best with at least 1/2 inch in length, depending on coarseness and hair pattern.

Pre-Sugar

Make sure to shower beforehand and thoroughly cleanse the area to be sugared. If available, use a loofah or exfoliating scrub to gently exfoliate the area. Your groomer will cleanse the area with a blend of witch hazel and essential oils, allow to dry and apply cornstarch to remove any remaining moisture.

Sugaring

The sugar paste is applied against the direction of hair growth and removed with a quick pull in the direction of hair growth. Yes, it does hurt a little, like a band-aid, but it’s well worth the lasting effects.

Post Sugar

Your groomer will again cleanse the area with the witch hazel blend, and apply an all natural antiseptic oil to moisturize and help prevent bacteria. At home, avoid bathing for at least 12 hours and for intimate areas, avoid sexual contact for 48 hours. Exfoliate the area gently when bathing. The next day or two wear loose clothing to try and keep the area dry while the skin recovers to help prevent bacteria. If necessary apply witch hazel or other gentle astringent to cleanse the area. If bumps appear, do not pop them. They will go away on their own. This is more common with very thick or coarse hair and will happen less over time with continued treatments.
