Hair removal trends for men

10th December 2013

It won't come as a surprise that men like David Beckham are making a conscious effort to manage their body hair, just like women.

There are various hair removal treatments available for both men and women but the one that will be most suitable for you will ultimately depend on your personal choice. These will be outlined below.


Men have been waxing their backs and chests for years, as it's an ideal treatment for large hairy areas. A waxing strip is placed on the desired area and then rapidly removed to strip the hair off. Continue with this process until all the hairs are waxed off, leaving the skin smooth.

It's a relatively common treatment for men to get waxed, but of course only temporary, as the hair will start growing back almost immediately.


Some body hair men might like to just keep short rather than remove, so electric trimmers can be great. It can pinch a bit, but it’s a simple process that allows men to control and tidy small and hard to reach hairy areas like the nostrils and ears.

Laser treatments

Laser hair removal is a safe, virtually painless method of removing unwanted hair. It works by focusing the beam at the base of the hair follicle. Many trustworthy skin clinics are now offering hair removal laser treatment, a prime example being sk:n clinics.

The best results will be seen after a number of treatments carried out by a qualified specialist. It should usually require up to six treatments to see your desired results. Find out more by booking your free consultation today at sk:n clinics.


This is a method of hair removal where unwanted hairs are plucked out by using a twisted cotton thread. This can be administered by beauticians at salons, where they use a doubled-up strand of cotton to twist around individual hairs and pull them out from the roots.
