Back waxing for men

Price: $80

The growing trend of male back hair removal presents a lucrative opportunity for businesses offering grooming services. If your salon doesn’t offer male-centric offerings, you’re likely missing out on an opportunity to gain a loyal clientele and provide impressive waxing results.

Our City Master’s salon offers a wide range of waxing options for both men and women.

Is back waxing beneficial for men? Certainly, it improves the overall appearance and condition of a man’s skin. It is especially fashionable among Generation Z men for the back and shoulders, while millennials focus more on the chest and abdomen.

An anonymous survey published in 2021 found that 77 percent of 100 women surveyed found back hair unattractive. However, many men also prefer to have a smooth back without hair as it is more convenient than shaving frequently.

How long does the smoothness effect last?

The duration of smoothness after waxing varies from person to person, but generally it provides two to three weeks of hair-free hair. Over time, waxing can also weaken hair follicles, resulting in slower growth of fine hair. Typically, men resort to a back waxing service about every three weeks to a month.

What is the cost of this service?

The price for high quality back waxing at City Master’s salon ranges from $60 to $80. For those who appreciate the benefits of a smooth back, this is a worthwhile monthly investment.

Is it painful?

The pain level of back waxing for men can vary, but it usually ranges from mild irritation to moderate discomfort. Using skilled techniques and high quality products can minimize irritation, which usually subsides quickly.

What should go into a depilation kit?

The effectiveness of the service starts with the quality of the products. Select products based on the client’s skin and hair type.

For normal skin and hair will do:

  • Original skin care products before and after depilation
  • Choosing a wax
  • Soft wax options: Blue or natural striped wax.
  • Roll-on options: Blue, Chocolate, Seaweed or Natural.
  • For sensitive skin and thick hair.

Care before and after depilation

  • Wait at least 48 hours after the treatment before engaging in activities that cause sweating.
  • Use the special applicator to spread the ingrown hair serum evenly over your back.
  • Maintain a consistent and gentle skin care routine by using skin-softening creams.
  • Choose spacious clothing made of cotton fabrics.
  • Eat a healthy diet rich in fibre and free from processed sugars, flour products and packaged meats.
  • Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

Aftercare is very important, so always follow the best male back care recommendations for optimal results.

Before waxing, it’s essential to ensure that your hair has grown to approximately half a centimeter in length, especially if you’ve previously shaved. It’s advisable to wait at least three weeks since your last shave and maintain a minimum of four weeks between waxing sessions. If you have excessively long hair, consider trimming it to about one centimeter before your intimate waxing appointment. For larger areas like the chest or back, we can use clippers to trim before starting the treatment. Additionally, it’s recommended that you gently exfoliate the treatment area 2-3 days before your waxing appointment. This exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and lift the hair, making it easier to remove and resulting in a smoother finish.

After your waxing treatment, our goal is for you to both look and feel fantastic. It’s entirely normal to experience slight redness or small bumps following waxing, but these typically subside within 24-48 hours. To minimize any post-waxing effects during this period, please adhere to the following guidelines:


  • Avoid hot baths or showers.
  • Steer clear of saunas, hot tubs, or steam treatments.
  • Refrain from tanning, whether it’s sunbathing, using sunbeds, or applying fake tans.
  • Skip strenuous physical activities, including sports, gym workouts, or heavy exercise.
  • Resist the urge to scratch or touch the treated area with unwashed hands.
  • Do not swim in chlorinated pools.

Avoid applying deodorants, body sprays, powders, lotions, or any other products to the treated area, unless recommended by your therapist.

Absolutely. We have a significant number of male clients at Embody Wellness who opt for waxing treatments.
