A few years ago, body hair removal for men was still something of a novelty. Sure, a few brave souls would have their shoulders and backs waxed at their local beauty salon but that was about it. How things have changed! These days, hair removal is no more unusual than moisturising. In fact, according to research company Euromonitor, 3 out of ten 18-34 year olds use procedures for removing body hair regularly, with 9 out of 10 of them reckoning they look better as a result. What’s more, surveys have repeatedly shown that women prefer their men to be smooth too. So if you fancy getting rid of that chest/shoulder/back hair, here are your two main options:
There are plenty of body hair removal products to choose from and they don’t have to be fiddly or painful to use. Bliss Poetic Strip Wax Kit, for example, allows you to remove unwanted hair from the root, leaving your skin smooth for weeks. You simply warm the strips in your hands, apply to the skin and whip them off. It’s a process that takes minutes. Plus, because you’ve removed the hairs at the root, when they do grow back they’ll have soft pointed tips so won’t be as noticeable or be itchy. For the best results, follow up with Tend Skin In-Growing Hair Solution which helps soothe skin and minimise redness after the hair has been removed. Or, if you prefer, you can try a product like Hair No More Hair Removing Cream, it painlessly dissolves the unwanted hair so it can be washed away, plus the box set comes with a bottle of Liquid Inhibitor Spray to slow down the regrowth so the smoothness lasts longer.
Electric or battery powered hair clippers have revolutionised the way you can tackle unwanted body hair. Here’s how to get the most out of a product like the WAHL Groomsmen Rechargeable Trimmer.

A few years ago, you'd have to visit a salon and shell out a small fortune to get rid of your excess fur but thanks to the popularity of body hair removal, it's never been easier or more convenient.
