6 Hair Removal Options for Men


In years past, body hair was a symbol of male prowess, proudly flaunted at every opportunity. However, the times are changing, and most men are now just as interested in hair removal as their female counterparts. So what are the most popular hair removal options for men and how effective are they?


Seemingly for time eternal, shaving is how men got rid of unwanted facial hair. Well, now men are shaving all of their body parts, and the technique has some pluses and minuses. In the plus column, shaving is easy and efficient. On the downside, however, shaving has to be done every day or two in order to maintain the effects, and painful nicks are always a risk.


For men, waxing has become much more popular in recent years. Not only do the effects last for weeks on end, but waxing is also an incredibly effective way to remove large swaths of hair from areas like the back, chest, arms and legs. Unfortunately, you then have to let the hair grow out so it can be waxed again, meaning there will be weeks when you're harrier then you might like.

Laser Reduction

If you're serious about going hairless, then laser hair reduction may be for you. Sure, it's expensive, but this technique will weaken your hair follicles, which will reduce the growth rate and allow you to go hairless for longer. Also, the technique can be used on virtually any area on the body.

Plucking and Tweezing

For more targeted jobs, such as unruly eyebrows, plucking or tweezing may be the way to go. Yes, it stings, and, no, it's not very efficient, but sometimes that trouble stray hair just has to be pulled out.

Depilatory Creams

Men who want a hassle-free hair removal experience often turn to depilatory creams. These creams are simply applied to the desired area, allowed to sit for around ten minutes, and then the cream is washed off, taking the hair along with it. If you want to give this method a try, just be careful, as your skin may have a negative reaction to the cream. So start off using it on only a small area.

Electric Trimming

Electric trimmers are great if you want to cut down on the length of your hair without eliminating it entirely. Most trimmers come with different settings, allowing you to customize the length of your body hair. Also, certain types of trimmers are specifically designed to get hairs that are notoriously hard to eliminate, such as nose hairs, making them particularly useful.

Reportedly, men who go hairless claim to have more confidence, a better-defined physique, and typically their partners are happier with their appearance. So if you're ready to shed some of your body hair, give one of these techniques a try.
