Hair growth is a part of life for most women & men – though the amount of hair and visibility varies depending on genetics, health/medications, and more. Many salons or waxing centers tend to focus on some of the more mainstream areas of the body to wax, such as: eyebrows, bikini/Brazilian, lips/chin, etc. However, this can cause women who experience hair growth on other areas of their body to feel insecure, and less likely to inquire about waxing options.
In this article, we will discuss 4 “unusual” places on the body that grow hair, and the best ways to remove it. At Bare Necessities Salon & Spa, we offer pain-free waxing for ALL of these areas – be sure to call and set an appointment with us!
Feet & Toes
Yes – women can grow hair on their feet and toes! This is not uncommon, though many women prefer to remove the hair so it is hard to tell just how many women actually have it. However, it is perfectly normal to want to get rid of any unwanted hairs that happen to sprout there – the question is, what is the best way to do so?
Why Should You Wax Your Toes?
The toes are a very small area of skin that produce hair, and it can be pretty sensitive. Plucking the hairs can be a good solution if you only have one or two every so often, but that can be pretty painful. Similarly, many women aren’t satisfied with the outcome of shaving their feet and/or toes, as hair regrowth tends to be prickly and even more noticeable.
Adding in a foot and/or toe wax into your regular waxing schedule (or by itself!) can be a game-changer for those who like to wear sandals or flip-flops stress-free.
Hair growth on the arms varies person by person – some may have close to no hair on their arms, while others may contend with thick dark hair in the same area. All of this is totally normal, and your preference to remove (or not remove!) this hair is valid!
Benefits of Waxing Your Arms
Waxing the arms is a great way to ensure complete hair removal at the follicle, eliminating rough stubble that occurs as hair grows back. Those that shave their arms may be dissatisfied with the feeling of their arms after a shave, and may prefer the silky smoothness that occurs after arm waxes.
What does arm waxing feel like? Most people will elect to only have their forearms waxed, as that is typically the area that sees the most hair growth. The forearms have tough skin that is not extremely sensitive, so it will feel like a quick slap and slight burning after the treatment is complete.
There’s no need for embarrassment, ladies – many women experience hair growth on their glutes! The location of hair growth can occur all around the buttock area, or more centrally located in the crack. Either way, if you wish to remove the hair there, your local waxing salon will be more than happy to help with that!
While it does take some guts to expose yourself for an intimate wax, professionals like those at Bare Necessities Salon & Spa in Houston are trained estheticians who won’t bat an eye at your particular situation. They are well-trained in the art of waxing, and have provided countless hair removal treatments on glutes throughout the years! Trust us – don’t let fear or embarrassment stop you from trying this one out – it is SO worth it!
Why Should I Try Waxing My Glutes?
The one great thing about hair removal for glutes is that it is undoubtedly the one area that hurts the least to wax! The infamous “butt strip” is one of the most satisfying places to wax, as it removes hairs that you might find difficult or impossible to reach yourself, and it is a breeze to get through.
While many people like the look of treasure trails on men, it doesn’t usually get the same positive attention on women! If you happen to grow hair on your stomach (whether just as a treasure trail, or all over), you should consider waxing as your hair removal solution if you choose to do so.
Which Is Better – Shaving or Waxing My Stomach?
Shaving or plucking hairs in this extremely sensitive area can cause a huge influx of ingrown hairs – NOT an attractive sight underneath a crop top! Waxing is undoubtedly the best way to remove hair with the least risk of ingrown hairs, and can help keep that area silky smooth for weeks.
Waxing this area is incredibly easy and less painful than more sensitive areas of the body. For those who just need their treasure trail area waxed, it is literally over in one strip!
