Cocktail Wax - The New Wax in Town

Getting any part of your body waxed as a male is becoming more popular, but there is also a lot of fear and apprehension that goes along with this. Cocktail Wax in Los Angeles has done a fantastic job of putting together some innovative waxes to go along with a great staff that will leave you asking why did I wait so long to do this.

The waxing room

Cocktail Wax founder Christina Amrani imports her wax from France, now you might ask why does it matter where the wax comes from. The wax and where it comes from is actually very important, well that is if you like getting a good waxing while keeping the pain to a minimum. I’ll just say no matter how careful or what you use, if you have hair ripped from your body, you are going to feel a little bit of pain, but beauty does have its costs. In America if you go somewhere to get waxed, male or female and regardless of body part, you are likely to get the same standard waxing. Cocktail Wax has twenty varieties of wax and they each have a distinct and specific use. Make sure you take a moment to take in the scent of the waxes as well, they smell so good you will want to dip your finger in and take a taste. They use chocolate, which contains the regenerating power of cocoa butter and is enriched with almond powder, this will leave your skin hydrated for days.

The elegant Cocktail Wax

Cocktail Wax has actual waxes that are meant for men, because trust me they have entirely different hair and skin, with the skin being on average 25% thicker than that of women, so it wouldn’t make sense to use the same wax. If you have a hairy chest I’m sure the thought has crossed your mind to get it waxed and after the scene in “40 Year Old Virgin” I’m sure that thought came and left. Being a virgin when it comes to waxing, this is what I thought I was in for and that kept me from giving this a try for a long time. First off I will say if you can get through the chest area, the stomach is a breeze. Monica was up front, telling me it would be uncomfortable but certainly not like that scene and she was correct. First she decided which wax to go with, the “Cream Wax of Talc,” a blue wax that is resin free to limit allergic reaction and irritation. Now I did have quite a bit of hair on my chest so she had to use a wax applier that layered the wax on my chest and then she put the waxing strips on and got started. I’ll say the sound was scarier than how it felt, it was a loud tearing sound and while it was painful from the start, it certainly was not as painful as I imagined. Actually the more area she did the more I got used to it and Monica told me that the more you get it done, the less painful it will be down the road. So guys don’t give up after one try, if you can do it once, I think you can keep it up and it really gives you a smooth, natural and clean feeling.

Cocktail Wax is not just about the guys though, of course women still are the queens when it comes to waxing. They offer waxing for every area of the body for women and men and the prices are pretty standard for what you are going to find at any other waxing facility around. The first thing that Cocktail Wax is going to do is ask you what area you are going to get waxed and then they will ask you more specific details about your body type, skin issues and anything else that might have an impact on your waxing. This all goes back to the fact that Cocktail Wax has twenty different types of waxes, each wax has a specific use and the staff will determine which one is the best one to suit your needs.
