Waxing is becoming more and more popular in modern barbershops all over the country. The benefits of waxing are immense which is exactly why this form of hair removal is on trend. Benefits of waxing include no cuts or nicks to the skin, and if any irritation occurs, it shouldn’t last more than 24 hours. Waxing specifically the beard area creates a cleaner and smoother look to the beard. Trust me guys, women love a clean and crisp beard. Waxing gives lasting results; it lasts much longer than shaving because hair is actually pulled from the root. Consistently waxing slows hair growth overtime. Hair does not grow back thicker or faster because of waxing; that is a myth. The downside of shaving your facial hair cuts the hair at an angle which causes that rough texture of the hair. Waxing pulls the hair out by the root so that when it does grow back, it grows back much softer. The Bates and Brown team encourages all of you to try a wax service at the shop, you will not regret it!
