Waxing vs. Shaving

Forget the General Election, this is the real question: Waxing or shaving?

No prizes for guessing which side of the debate we are on. There are a whole bunch of reasons why waxing is sooooo much better than shaving, but we thought we should spell some of them out for you….

We’ve all seen the episode of FRIENDS where Monica and Phoebe use a home leg waxing kit and have to remove each others strips because it’s too painful for them to do it to themselves. This is nothing like professional waxing in a salon. Plus, that was the 90s. Things have moved on. Including waxing!


It’s pain free – Contrary to popular belief waxing offers pain free hair removal. Gone are the days of uncomfortable and damn right painful waxing! The natural ingredients and clever technologies that are now involved in the production of waxes makes them as gentle as possible.

Read about our new virtually painless wax product, now in the salon!

It will save you time – On average, leg waxing will last 4 to 6 weeks. No more fighting with a razor every few days. You’ll be in and out of the shower in no time! You’ll wonder what to do with all that extra time in the morning or before a night out if you opt for waxing.

No more cuts – hallelujah! Those pesky little nicks we all get from time to time, especially with a new razor, are gone forever. No more stinging, no more trickles of blood running down your leg, armpit, or lady area (ouch! and shame on you for using a razor there!).

No more little red dots – you know the ones we’re talking about. If you shave regularly you can be prone to little dots that form on the skin. This is irriataion of the hair follicle, caused by too much shaving and damage to the skin. Be careful this doesn’t develop into folliculitis, a non-serious but nevertheless painful, itchy and visually unpleasant condition.


We’re tempted to say there aren’t any but we should be fair.

The cost – ok, so the price of a Hollywood wax or a full leg treatment is more than you can expect to pay, even for the best razor on the market, but it’s worth it. A professional result that lasts at least 4 weeks! Plus when divided over the month it really works out at very little per week, or even day. We are also very competitively priced and offer some of the best waxing prices in Manchester!

The time – yes, booking an appointment, trapsing into town, finding the time in your busy schedule can all be a chore for something you can just as easily do at home but again, it’s worth it. A professional result that lasts at least 4 weeks! Plus, it’s a little pamper session. A little time for you and will leave you feeling fabulous, confident and sexy!

Don’t be tempted to shave: remember the cuts, remember the red dots! Call us instead and book in for an emergeny wax! Infact, you should try our new clever booking system. It will not only remind you about your pre-booked appointment so you don’t forget about it, but it will also log the treatment you have booked and send you a handy reminder to book your next appointment when it’s close to being due. Good eh?!
