4 Benefits of Waxing versus Shaving

Waxing versus Shaving

As the weather warms up, everyone wants to wear cute sundresses, tops, and bikinis—without worrying about unwanted hair and having to keep up with shaving. Waxing is the perfect solution to staying hair-free and ready to go at a moment’s notice. Salon Sleek offers a variety of waxing services that will meet all your body care needs.

Why waxing versus shaving?

  1. Waxing lasts longer. A typical wax can last 4-5 weeks compared to 4-5 days for shaving.
  2. Waxing reduces hair growth and thickness. Regular waxing shrinks and thins the hair follicles—making them grow slower and be less visible.
  3. Avoid cuts and bumps from shaving. There is no risk of cuts with waxing and you are much less likely to irritate your skin, reducing the risk of bumps and ingrown hairs. To further limit bumps, we recommend gently exfoliating the waxed areas several times a week.
  4. Save time getting ready. Your waxing appointment will last between 15 and 45 minutes depending on the areas to be treated. That time investment lasts for weeks compared to shaving several times a week. With a wax, you will never have that “uh oh- I need to shave” thought when in a rush to get ready and out the door.
