Do I need to trim my hair beforehand?

No. The salon will take care of that if it needs trimming. If you do it yourself you risk taking too much off.

How long will a chest wax take?

This will, of course, depend on the extent of your hair coverage, and due to the difference in hair coverage levels between different men, it can be difficult to give an estimate. However, as a general guide, it should take around 30 minutes for a chest and abs wax.

Is there anything I should do to prepare for my wax?

You should try and exfoliate and moisturise your skin in the area to be waxed for a couple of days before your appointment. This will help maximise your results. If you don’t regularly exfoliate the area to be waxed, you’re likely to have a lot of dead skin which will trap hairs underneath it. By exfoliating and removing the dead skin, you’ll be releasing those hairs, which can then be successfully waxed. Don’t apply any heavy creams just before your session.
