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 discuss the Pros and cons of waxing better than shaving. 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 a shower or bathtub… that’s it!

Cutting yourself

Anyone who 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 shaving, 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 the skin become darker than the rest. It can happen due to excessive shaving and skin removal in an area, depending on your skin type. Hyperpigmentation will not occur with waxing or happy days.


It lasts much longer:

Where shaving is quick, waxing may take slightly longer (it 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 lady and male waxing unwanted hair removal services, your Waxologist will apply an aloe hydrating lotion for your completely 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 your next wax. PLUS! PLUS!

Smooth & Sexy finish

After the waxing hair removal service, the skin is left super smooth and silky soft. 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, no knicks or shaving accidents 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 and sometimes leaving it very irritated. So, you need to learn more about why is waxing better than shaving.

Lots of waxing options to choose from

Not all waxes are created alike; hard wax, soft wax, sugared waxing, on & on. I have found that the best type of wax is best when used at a lower temperature. It ensures no burning and allows 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 remove from the root, it is less likely to have an unsightly ingrown.

First time waxing (ouch)

Okay, the first time isn’t so fun, but I promise you 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.
