Say Goodbye to Unwanted Hair: A Guide to Male Hair Removal

Before you decide to get a Mister X, it is important to be aware of what you are signing up for. This process involves touching, holding and moving your intimate parts. It includes holding and stretching the skin taut, pulling up, down, this way and that way. Your involvement is necessary, the extra pair of hands is a must. No ifs, ands, or buts. The tighter the skin, the less agony. So, be sure to feel comfortable with this before moving ahead.

Going for a sugaring session might be a bit overwhelming, especially when you have to get undressed from the waist down. But please be aware that all I'm thinking about is getting rid of this hair with minimal agony. Talk to me beforehand if you're feeling tense or uneasy and follow my directions to get the best outcome.

The Male Brazilian Gets a New Name

A "Manzilian" is a term used to refer to the male version of a Brazilian wax. A “Brozilian” is essentially the same as a Manzilian, and the terms are often used interchangeably. It involves removing hair from the pubic area, including the front, back, the scrotum, perineum, and anal region.
Personally, I think both terms sound ridiculous. Other names are: “Boyzilian”, “Guyzilian”.... You get the idea. The silliness of these names inspired me in such a way that I just had to create a completely new phrase. I quickly realized that the “zilian” part was the issue. And so, “Brazilian” also had to disappear from my treatment menu. Hence, Mister X and Sister X were born.

Male Grooming: The Top 10 Benefits

Whether through shaving, waxing, sugaring, or other methods, male hair removal offers several benefits that many individuals find appealing:

1. Aesthetics: Some men choose hair removal to achieve a groomed and clean appearance. Removing excessive body hair can enhance muscle definition and make the skin look smoother.

2. Hygiene: Reducing body hair can help with maintaining better hygiene, as hair can trap sweat, bacteria, and odor.

3. Comfort: Hair removal in certain areas, such as the chest, back, or groin, can lead to increased comfort, especially during hot weather or physical activities.

4. Sports and Athletics: Athletes often remove body hair to reduce drag and chafing, especially in sports like swimming, cycling, and bodybuilding.

5. Personal Preferences: Hair removal is a matter of personal choice. Some men simply prefer the look and feel of smooth skin.

6. Confidence: Feeling well-groomed and confident in one's appearance can positively impact self-esteem and body image.

7. Skin Exfoliation: Some hair removal methods, like sugaring and waxing, provide an exfoliating effect, leaving the skin smoother and potentially reducing ingrown hairs.

8. Partner Preferences: Some individuals or their partners may prefer hair removal for various intimate reasons.

9. Hair Management: For men with excessive or unruly pubic hair, hair removal can help with hair management and grooming.

10. Sensation: Some men find that hair removal increases sensitivity during intimate activities.

It's important to note that the decision to remove body hair is entirely up to each individual, and there is no right or wrong choice. Different people have varying preferences and reasons for opting for or against hair removal. If you are considering hair removal, it's crucial to find a skilled professional who uses proper techniques and follows correct hygiene protocols in line with Council Health Regulations to ensure a safe and effective experience. Additionally, proper aftercare is essential to prevent irritation and maintain the health of the skin in the treated area.

Sugaring for Men: Why It's the Best Hair Removal Method Available

Male hair removal can be achieved through various methods, depending on personal preference and the area you want to groom. Some common hair removal techniques for men include:

1. Shaving: Using a razor or an electric shaver to remove hair from the face, chest, back, or other body parts.

2. Waxing: Applying hot or cold wax to the skin and then pulling it off quickly to remove hair from the roots. This method provides longer-lasting results compared to shaving.

3. Depilatory Creams: Applying a chemical cream that dissolves the hair, allowing it to be wiped or washed away. FUN FACT: Depilatory creams, while usually safe, can have more severe side effects than other hair removal methods. If used for too long, they can result in first, second, or even third-degree chemical burns. The cream works by using thioglycolic acid to break down keratin protein, and unlike other hair removal techniques, it actually penetrates the skin. And guess what our skin contains? Keratin.

4. Laser Hair Removal: Using laser technology to target hair follicles and reduce hair growth over time. This method provides more permanent results.

5. Electrolysis: Using an electric current to destroy hair follicles and permanently remove hair.

6. Trimming: Using scissors or a trimmer to cut hair to a desired length without actually removing it.

Each method has its pros and cons, and the best choice depends on factors such as hair type, sensitivity, budget, and desired results.

Sugaring is often considered a better option for men's hair removal for several reasons, particularly in sensitive areas such as the genital region and other parts of the body. Here are some advantages of sugaring over other hair removal methods:

  • Natural Ingredients: Sugar paste is typically made from natural ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice, making it an eco-friendlier and skin-friendly option. It does not contain harsh chemicals or additives, reducing the risk of skin irritation and reaction.

  • Less Painful: Sugaring can be less painful than traditional waxing because the paste adheres only to the hair, not the skin. This means less tugging on the skin during hair removal, which can minimize discomfort, especially in sensitive areas.

  • Exfoliating Effect: The sugar paste acts as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and leaving the skin smoother and softer after the hair removal process.

  • Lower Risk of Burns: Sugaring is generally performed at a lukewarm temperature, significantly reducing the risk of burns compared to hot waxing. MSM Professional Sugar Paste is the only cold sugar paste currently available on the market. It warms up as it's being used but it is never, ever heated. Which means no risk of burning: never, ever.

  • Reduced Ingrown Hairs: Sugaring can help reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs since the paste is applied against the direction of hair growth and removed with the direction of the hair growth. There is little to no breakage in comparison to waxing because the hair isn't being snapped back on itself.

  • Suitable for Shorter Hair: Sugaring can effectively remove shorter hair compared to traditional waxing, as the paste can adhere to hair as short as 1/16 of an inch.

  • Easy Cleanup: Sugaring paste is water-soluble, making cleanup much simpler than with traditional waxing, which often requires oil-based removers.

  • Hygienic: Sugaring involves the use of a new ball of sugar paste for each client, reducing the risk of cross-contamination during the procedure and your therapist must always wear skin-tight Nitrile gloves.
  • As talked about here at AskMen, one of the significant differences between hair removal for men and women is the texture and thickness of the hair. Men's hair, especially in areas like the chest, back, and facial hair, tends to be coarser and more resistant to hair removal compared to women's hair. As a result, men may require a different and more customized approach when it comes to removing unwanted hair.

    Here are some key points that highlight the differences for men:

    • Hair Texture: As mentioned, men's hair is often thicker and coarser, which can make it more challenging to remove with standard epilation techniques. The type of product used and the temperature at which it is applied may need to be adjusted to accommodate the different hair texture.
    • Hair Density: Men's bodies generally have a higher hair density in certain areas, such as the chest, back, and arms. This means there may be more hair to remove during a session, requiring more time and attention to detail.

    • Hair Growth Patterns: Men's hair growth patterns can be more unpredictable and irregular compared to women's hair. Understanding the direction of hair growth is essential for effective body sugaring and less painful removal.
    • Sensitivity: While hair removal is generally uncomfortable by nature, certain areas on a man's body, like the genital region, can be more sensitive than similar areas on women. A skilled therapist should approach sensitive areas with extra care and may use specific products or techniques to minimize discomfort.

    • Customization: Due to the differences in hair texture, density, and growth patterns, therapists often need to tailor their techniques and product choices to suit each client's specific needs. This customization ensures the best results and a more comfortable experience for the client.
    • Communication: Effective communication between the client and the therapist is crucial. Men should feel comfortable discussing their preferences, concerns, and pain tolerance with their therapist to achieve the best possible outcome.

    Because of these differences, some salons and spas may have therapists who specialize in male hair removal to provide the most effective and comfortable service. If you're considering hair removal, whether you're a Mister or a Sister, it's essential to choose a reputable therapist who has experience in your specific needs.

Why Body Sugaring is the Best Hair Removal Method for Long-Lasting Smooth Skin

Sugaring can be a more pleasant hair removal option for men, especially for those with stronger hair. The technique of sugaring involves applying a sugar paste against the direction of hair growth and removing the hair with the direction of hair growth. This is in contrast to traditional waxing, where the hair is pulled against the direction of growth. This key difference can make sugaring a gentler and more comfortable experience, particularly for individuals with thick or coarse hair. The risk of hair root inflammation is also much lower.

Here are some advantages of sugaring for men with strong hair:

  • Less Discomfort: Pulling the hair in the direction of growth reduces the likelihood of hair breakage, which can lead to less discomfort during the hair removal process. The hair is removed completely, rather than being yanked and remaining in the skin.
  • Reduced Ingrown Hairs: By removing the hair intact in the direction of growth, sugaring helps to minimize the occurrence of ingrown hairs, a common concern and occurrence for men with thick, coarse hair.
  • Lower Risk of Irritation: Sugaring paste is typically made from natural ingredients, making it less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions.
  • Slower Hair Regrowth: Sugaring removes hair from the root, resulting in slower regrowth compared to shaving, which only cuts the hair at the surface. Or waxing, which may break the hair or snap it just below the surface, another major cause of ingrown hairs.
  • Exfoliating Effect: The sugar paste acts as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and leaving the skin smoother after hair removal.
  • Hygienic: Sugaring involves using a new ball of sugar paste for each client, reducing the risk of cross-contamination during the procedure.

As with any hair removal method, individual experiences may vary, and some men may still prefer other methods based on personal preferences. However, for those seeking a more comfortable and effective hair removal option, sugaring can be an excellent choice, particularly for men with strong hair.

The Rise of Male Body Sugaring Hair Removal: A Revolution in Australia

Male Body Sugaring Hair Removal has become hugely popular in Australia. More and more men are opting for intimate hair removal as part of their grooming routine to achieve a smoother and cleaner appearance in the genital area and surrounding regions.

The rising popularity may be attributed to several factors:

Changing Beauty Standards: Evolving beauty standards and body grooming expectations have encouraged men to explore various grooming options, including sugaring.

Increased Awareness: With the rise of social media and the internet, information about grooming practices has become more accessible to men, leading to a greater awareness and acceptance of male sugaring.

Influence of Media and Entertainment: The representation of well-groomed male celebrities and models in media and entertainment has contributed to the normalization of male grooming, including intimate hair removal.

Hygiene and Comfort: Some men find hair removal more hygienic and comfortable as it reduces sweat and friction in the genital area.

Partner Preferences: As mentioned earlier, some men may choose to sugar to align with their partner's preferences or enhance intimacy in their relationships.

Athletic and Fitness Trends: Male athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts often prefer to be hair-free to showcase their physique and muscle definition more effectively.

As societal norms evolve, more men are exploring grooming options beyond traditional haircuts and shaving. While they can still be extremely difficult to find, some salons and spas are also adapting to this shift in demand by offering specialized services for men, such as full body hair removal.

Aaaaaaaaaand While We're on the Subject of Being on the Rise...

What if I get an erection?

The most common question.

It happens all the time, and sometimes it can help make the skin taut for a better experience, so no need to be embarrassed. The therapist will stretch your skin in the area they are treating, so they can remove the paste quickly and efficiently. It's true that if you keep your skin taut, it'll make the process less painful. That's the facts. That’s why you need a professional to have your male grooming needs tended to.

Erections can happen involuntarily during certain situations, including male grooming services. However, it's essential to recognize that such reactions are natural physiological responses and not indicative of any inappropriate intent or behavior. Professional therapists are trained to maintain a non-judgmental and professional demeanor during all aesthetic treatments. They are well-aware that the body's responses, such as an erection, can occur regardless of the client's intentions.

Here are a few important points to keep in mind:

  • Professionalism: I am trained to focus solely on their work and the task at hand, which is performing your male grooming treatments. I am not there to judge or make anyone uncomfortable about their natural bodily responses.
  • Communication: If you feel embarrassed or uncomfortable during the session, it's okay to communicate your feelings with me. I will understand and make efforts to ensure your comfort and well-being.
  • Relaxation Techniques: If you are concerned about the possibility of getting an erection, you can practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing to help minimize anxiety and physical responses. I'm more than happy to let you pick the playlist during your male grooming appointment!
  • Distractions: Some clients find that bringing headphones and listening to music or a podcast can help take their minds off the procedure, potentially reducing the likelihood of physical responses. A good chat can always be the perfect distraction from the situation at hand too. I really enjoy the variety in conversation with my Mister clients!
  • Privacy and Modesty: During the male grooming session, I will make sure that your privacy and dignity are taken seriously by using the right draping techniques to cover the areas that are not presently being treated.

Remember that therapists are experienced professionals who have likely encountered various situations during their careers. Their primary focus is on providing safe, efficient and comfortable spa and salon services.

A professional and reputable salon or spa will maintain a strictly professional environment during all services, including male grooming. The therapists should be trained to treat clients with respect, dignity, and discretion. Any potential discomfort or embarrassment on the client's part should be acknowledged and handled discreetly and professionally.

Communication between the therapist and the client is crucial to ensure a comfortable and respectful experience. It's essential for the client to feel at ease and feel confident in voicing any concerns or questions they may have before or during the service. Likewise, therapists should be trained to handle such situations with professionalism, ensuring that the focus remains solely on providing the service with the client's comfort in mind.

By maintaining clear boundaries and professionalism, both the client and the therapist can navigate the process without any confusion or discomfort.

How to Conquer the Ouch Factor: Tips for Easier Hair Removal

Contrary to what movies might lead you to expect, getting your balls and butt crack waxed isn't exactly the most excruciating pain you'll ever experience. Sure, it isn't a walk in the park, but it's certainly bearable.

Waxing sensitive areas like the balls and butt can be a real pain - literally. It's important to remember that everyone's pain tolerance is different, so one person may find it more bearable than the next. Plus, the amount of discomfort you experience during a wax depends on your personal pain threshold, as well as the expertise of the person doing the waxing.

To minimize discomfort during a male grooming session, consider the following tips:

  • Choose an experienced professional: An experienced therapist can perform aesthetic treatments with greater efficiency and accuracy, reducing the discomfort.
  • Exfoliate gently: Gently exfoliate the area a day or two before your appointment to remove dead skin cells, allowing for a smoother experience.
  • Communicate with me: Let me know about any concerns or worries you have before we begin. I can offer suggestions or modify the process to make it more comfortable for you.
  • Focus on the benefits: While the experience might be uncomfortable in the moment, many individuals appreciate the smooth and groomed results of a Mister X. Keeping the end result in mind can help you get through the process.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol: before your session They both increase blood flow and can increase sensitivity.

According to this article written in GQ, the discomfort experienced during a Mister X is not solely about the pain of the sugaring itself. A lot of people struggle with the idea of having to get undressed in front of a stranger before the treatment, and it's understandable why. It can be a really awkward experience for many!

The feeling of vulnerability and exposure can be challenging for some people, especially if they are not used to such intimate male grooming practices or have never undergone any type of hair care or hair removal before. It's completely natural to feel self-conscious or uneasy in this situation.

Remember that estheticians are professionals: Estheticians who perform Brazilian waxing are trained to maintain a professional and non-judgmental attitude. They have likely seen many clients and are accustomed to working in this intimate setting.

You should only undergo a Mister X treatment if you feel comfortable and ready to do so. If you're uncertain about it, you can start with less intimate male grooming spa and salon services to get familiar with the process before deciding to jump right in.

The pain experienced during a Mister X varies from person to person. Pain tolerance is a subjective and individualized experience, and what might be uncomfortable for one person may be more tolerable for another.

For some individuals, Mister X's can be uncomfortable and may cause brief, sharp pain when the hair is removed from the root. The sensation is often described as a quick sting, similar to the feeling of pulling off a band-aid. However, the pain is usually temporary and subsides quickly, almost immediately, once the hair is out. With waxing, the skin continues to sting and feel tender for quite some time after your has finished.

On the other hand, some clients find Mister X's to be more manageable and relatively painless, especially with an experienced therapist who uses a high-quality sugar paste and effective techniques to minimize discomfort.

Here are a few factors that can influence the level of pain during Brazilian waxing:

Pain Tolerance: As I mentioned, everyone's pain tolerance is different. Some individuals may find the process uncomfortable, while others may hardly notice the sensation.

Area being Treated: Some areas, like the genital and anal regions, can be more sensitive than others, which may lead to increased discomfort during hair removal.

Experience of the Therapist: I've been sugaring Misters and Sisters for 9 years and waxing them for16 years before that - I got you.

Hair Length and Coarseness: Longer and coarser hair may be more painful to remove than shorter, finer hair.

Ensuring a pleasant experience....

Visiting a salon for hair removal, especially for the first time, can be intimidating for anyone. The fear of the unknown, coupled with the idea of pain or discomfort, can make the experience daunting. However, it's important to remember that professional therapists are there to make the process as comfortable and pleasant as possible for their clients.

A welcoming and experienced therapist understands the anxiety that some clients may have and is skilled in creating a calming and distraction-filled environment during the hair removal session. They can use various techniques to help ease nerves and make the experience more enjoyable:

Relaxing Atmosphere: Salons often create a soothing ambiance with soft lighting, calming music, and pleasant scents to help clients feel at ease during spa and salon sevices.

Friendly and Supportive Approach: We, as qualified Beauty Therapists, are trained to be friendly, approachable, and understanding. We will guide clients through the process step-by-step, answering any questions and addressing concerns.

Music or Entertainment: Some salons offer clients the option to listen to music or watch videos during the session, providing further distraction and relaxation.

Transparent Communication: A good therapist will communicate openly with the client throughout the process, explaining each step and ensuring that the client feels comfortable and informed.

Skilled Technique: An experienced therapist will use proper hair removal techniques to minimize discomfort and achieve the best results.


You have to do some personal hygiene preparation before your male grooming appointment.

Make sure you've got at least a quarter-inch of hair growth down under. And try to hold off on shaving for two weeks prior to your appointment.

Personal hygiene, grooming etiquette and maintaining proper cleanliness is essential for both the client and the therapist's comfort and professionalism during the treatment. And according to this article in Esquire, you’ll be your own personal hygiene hero!

Before your appointment, it's crucial for you to follow these personal hygiene practices:

  • Showering: Taking a thorough shower or bath before the appointment helps ensure that the skin is clean and free from dirt, sweat, and odor. This should be obvious, but in case it needs to be said: You are inviting someone to visit your most private parts, so take a little extra care down there.
  • Cleanliness: Pay particular attention to the genital and anal areas, as well as any other areas to be sugared. Using mild soap and warm water is sufficient for cleansing.
  • Avoid Using any Lotions: Before or you'll inhibit the sugar paste from adhering to the hair and skin. Also refrain from using after your appointment as these can cause skin irritation after the hair removal process.
  • Cut it short!: If the hairs that need sugaring are too long, it's much easier to remove them if they're trimmed down to about one-fourth of an inch. That way, sugaring will be much more effective and comfortable.

It's important to show respect to the therapist's time and professionalism by following the proper practices. This ensures that both parties have a pleasant and hygienic experience. Moreover, make sure to communicate openly with the therapist before the male grooming session, so that any concerns or preferences are addressed.

So Here Is What You Can Expect:


When a man gets a Mister X, it involves the removal of most or all of the pubic hair from the genital area, including the penis, scrotum, and the surrounding areas. It's an aesthetic treatment that results in a smooth and hair-free appearance in the treated region.

Here's what typically happens during a Mister X session:

Preparation: You will be asked to remove clothing from the waist down and lie down on the treatment table, in a private room. You will be given a modesty towel to use at the beginning of your treatment.

Cleansing: The area is cleaned with MSM Prepare: an organic, vegan and gentle preparation spray. This removes any dirt, oils, or bacteria that might be present on the skin.

Sugaring: The first step is to make sure the area is completely dry by dusting the it with MSM Absorb: our talc-free powder. The therapist will then apply the sugar paste to the pubic area, in small sections, against the hair growth. The paste will then be removed quickly in the same direction as the hair growth. This is repeated until the area is free of hair.

Soothing: After the sugaring is complete, you will be given an anti-bacterial hand wipe to cleanse your hands. You'll then be given a cotton pad with MSM Hydrate: an organic, vegan, gentle and soothing moisturizer.

Aftercare Advice: You'll be provided with aftercare instructions to help maintain the skin's health and minimize discomfort following the male grooming session.

Like a Sister X, you can choose how much hair you want removed. Under the Services tab in the Menu above, there is a page titled 'Meet The Exes". Here you can learn the difference between Mister X, Mister XX and MIster XXX.

In a Mister X, the following areas are commonly included, depending on which treatment is chosen:

Pubic Mound: The hair on the pubic mound, which is the area above the penis, is typically removed or a line about one inch wide.

Shaft and Testicles: Hair removal includes the penis shaft and the scrotum (testicles).

Perineum and Between Butt Cheeks: The hair between the scrotum and the anus (perineum).

The hair on the butt cheeks is an additional service.

Some men also opt to have the hair removed from the bikini line (the area outside of the underwear) removed.


Mister X results can differ depending on the individual, but generally speaking, it can last for 3 to 6 weeks. The hair in the sugared area is taken out from the roots, which means it takes some time for a new hair to appear. When the hair regrows, it's usually softer and finer. The following appointment will be less painful than the first. Most guys make regular sugaring appointments to keep on top of the hair growth.

It's worth mentioning that the initial sugaring session may not result in total hair removal due to varying hair growth patterns. For optimal results, multiple sugaring sessions may be necessary to achieve a smoother and longer-lasting finish.

Several factors can influence how long the results of a Mister X will last:

Hair Growth Rate: Hair growth rates vary from person to person. Some individuals have faster hair regrowth, while others have slower growth patterns. The duration of the results depends on the individual's hair growth rate and what stage the hair was at when we initially removed it.

Hair Texture and Thickness: Coarser and thicker hair may take longer to grow back, so individuals with finer hair might notice regrowth sooner.

Hormonal Factors: Hormonal fluctuations can affect hair growth. For example, certain medications or hormonal imbalances might accelerate or slow down hair regrowth.

Sugaring Frequency: Regular sugaring sessions over time will lead to hair regrowth becoming finer and sparser, extending the time between appointments.

Proper Aftercare: Following proper aftercare instructions provided by the therapist can help maintain the results for a longer duration. This may include avoiding hot baths or showers immediately after sugaring and using gentle, non-irritating products to exfoliate and hydrate the sugared area in between appointments.

Sugaring & Beards...

The ONLY part of the human that cannot be sugared is the male beard. 

Sugar is so effective in removing hair from the root that you don’t even have to wait for the hair shaft to get longer than 1/8th of an inch. This is also the reason that it shouldn’t be used on the male beard. The roots of the male’s facial hair are pretty deep in the skin, nearly rooted in connective tissue, so removing the hair from that depth would not only be incredibly painful but would make every pore bleed and also cause tissue damage.
