Ok, so I've been thinking of doing this for a while, but I'd previously never had the guts to actually walk into a salon and ask them to do it for me. Internet resources on the topic (waxing for men) were annoyingly sparse. So a few days back, I just bought a wax kit off of Amazon and got to work. I think the smart thing to do would have been to do my arms first, which are pretty hairy, and since it's winter, I'd be able to conceal them well. I was operating on the assumption that they'd grow back less dense, so I'd be ready to bust out the polo shirts and what not in spring. But I wasn't sure whether I should trim the arm hairs down first; I felt like if I did that, the hair would be conditioned to grow back denser anyway. So I decided to do my stomach first. 100% concealment this way, and more surface area to work on. Plus, my Stomach is less hairy than my arms, so it might be easier to do as well. So, in short, the process is this: 1) Warm up the wax. 2) Spread it over the intended area, not too thick. and do it quickly, while the wax is relatively hot (it doesn't hurt much). Don't try to spread it over too large an area, becuase it will get stuck in the hairs when it starts getting too thin, and almost immediately start hardening up, 3) Place the strip over the wax covered area. Leave about a third of the strip unexposed to the wax so that you can grab it and pull it off. 4) Count down to zero and pull. Sometimes, it'll come clean off, taking all the hair with it. Sometimes, you'll underestimate the force with which you need to pull, causing the strip to only come off partially, leaving a lot of unpulled hairs. THIS REALLY HURTS. Ripping it clean off sort of hurts, but the success mitigates some of the hurting. I think i did a pretty good job, but my main problem was in removing the residual wax. The wax off lotion I had sucked, didn/t get anything off. I pretty much had to pull off the hardened wax that had gotten stuck on some of the hairs (I wasn't doing a full body wax), which hurt a lot, as I had to literally pull off all the hairs so that the wax had nothing to stick to. If you're considering waxing yourself at all, I'd recommend covering as much territory as possible, so that you spare yourself the pain of cleaning up. Exfoliation is key after you're done. Take a cold shower, and use some sort of exfoliating shower gel, (the ones with the grits in them if possible), and rub a loofah or sponge gently over the treated area. This is key to reducing the possibility of ingrown hairs and pimples. I had a couple after the first 24 hours, but they're subsiding now, thank god. Oh, and to make the removal process easier, trim the hairs first. It would seriously have made a world of difference, There it is. My contribution to vain men everywhere. It wasn't too bad in hindsight, but maybe I'll go to salon next time for the peace of mind. If you've gone the DIY route, post your experiences.
