There are many reasons to wax instead of shave, so I wanted to take the time to write down some of the most important that each lady and gent out there should know.

Even though shaving might seem like a fast alternative that can be done anywhere and is cost-effective, it also results in such things as unsightly ingrown & razor burn. Therefore, we will be discussing the Pros and Cons for each so that you will be fully informed and can decide which is best for you.


Shaving will always be the fastest, but waxing has it beat by a long shot for long-lasting hair removal. After shaving, stubble comes back as early as the same day.


I’m not going to lie shaving is the most cost-effective, all you need is a razor, soap, and shower or bathtub… that’s it!

Cutting yourself:

Anyone shaved regularly knows what I’m talking about; it takes a second of you in thought or in a rush to get that Knick. But, unfortunately, this can also result in scare.


Yup! The #1 reason why most switch from shaving to waxing. When waxing, the hair is removed from the root, so it’s thinner, more refined, and less of it when it grows back! Yesssss!


It is a result when areas of skin become darker than the rest. It can happen due to excessive shaving and skin removal in an area depending on your skin type and will not occur with waxing, happy days.



It lasts much longer:

where shaving is quick, waxing may take slightly longer (all depends on your waxologist), most clients return after 4-5 weeks for their next appointment, yayyyyyy!

Removal of dead, dry skin (Exfoliation):

Waxing is the best way to remove unwanted hair and remove all dead, dry skin to show a beautiful hairless glow look. After a wax service, your waxologist will apply an aloe hydrating lotion for your complete smooth and sexy look.

Hair begins to grow less and eventually stops in areas:

The best part! The more you wax, the less hair you will have. Each time we wax you, the hair cells must work extremely hard to regrow and create the hair follicle for the next cycle. So as times go on, the more you wax…., the less hair you will have.

Hair regrowth is thinner:

After waxing, the hair regrowth is much thinner, so you see less hair. In turn, you can go even longer until you next wax. PLUS! PLUS!

Smooth & Sexy finish:

After hair removal, the skin is left super smooth and silky soft, mainly because it has been removed from the root and dead skin removed along with it.

No more Pigmentation!:

That’s right. When hair is removed from the root, there are no knicks or shaving accidents that can result in any pigmentation.

See you itchy and scratchy:

It is another big complaint from shavers. After shaving, the skin becomes very itchy, making you scratch the area, sometimes leaving it very irritated.

Lots of waxing options to choose from:

Not all waxes are created alike; there are hard wax, soft wax, sugar wax, on & on. I have found that the best type of wax is best when used at a lower temperature to ensure no burning and allow significant area coverage for a faster and easier waxing experience. This, of course, is a preference. Take your time and see which suits you best.

Time saver:

Instead of shaving every day or 2, you come in once and return in 4 To 5 weeks for your next visit, easy peasy!

Ba-bye Ingrowns:

When the hair is removed from the root, it is less likely to have unsightly ingrown.

First time waxing (ouch):

Okay, the first time isn’t so fun, but I promise you that the rest is smooth sailing after your first wax.


Is waxing better than shaving……! by choosing to wax over shaving, you are saying yes to smoother, long-lasting hair removal results.
