I personally would only go to a ' well known'  one. ie: a name that you have seen often or in a big well known shopping mall. I personally don' t know about the man-friendliness of them. Ask them! The one I go to is extremely gent friendly and offers a huge variety of treatments for the gents.

Oh, and an extremely important question to ask, is if they recycle their wax. Answer should be no. They aren' t supposed to, but I was shocked when I found out some still do.

well at least chatting about waxing has been more on the lighter side than the past couple of weeks......so any salon will do then? are some not more man friendly than others?

Anon, sorry, I got so sidetracked.

The best thing is to go to one of the well known salons and then do a quick google on them. I have been to most of them and they all pretty much the same. I found one salon (and a therapist- which I think is more important than the salon itself) that I liked and I will always follow her around.

Hahah Gareth. Interesting comment, but I have to admit, I am a girl and prefer waxing to shaving.

And no, YOU are lying! :) A tattoo is WAY more painful than waxing. But no doubt, it stings for a bit and then it' s over, and smooth! The more you wax a certain area, the more your body ajusts to the to principle of waxing and the hair becomes less over time.

What helps is if you ask the therapist to place her hand over the area that has just been waxed immediately after he/she rips. Don' t try that with a bikini/buttox wax though - you will get thrown out and banned from the salon. :)

Ouch, I hope you have a high pain threshold, because there is no denying it it is painful. Like getting a tattoo. If someone says it is not sore they are lying. It is DAMN sore, but the end result is worth the few moments of pain...
