Chest waxing at Salon Di Marco

In researching his story on "manscaping" — the fine art of advanced male hygiene — reporter Gavon Laessig undergoes a chest waxing at Salon Di Marco. Enlarge video

Tara Kuba, esthetician at Salon Di Marco, 733 Mass., performs a chest wax on Gavon Laessig, Lawrence. She applies talc powder first to keep the wax from sticking.

A gorilla, a muskox and Robin Williams — three burly animals I’ve been compared to when shirtless. Frankly, I’m a hirsute man.

Aside from occasional, youthful experiments with shaving, I’ve never been a big proponent of so-called “manscaping.” It was just too hopeless. Considering my chest looks like a Joseph Conrad novel, you would need to napalm that manscape.

I’ve also avoided manscaping because I kind of took pride in a lush chest pelt. It harkened back to the days of Tom Selleck and Burt Reynolds, when men were men and women were grossed out by those men. It was a simpler time.

Basically, due to laziness and misplaced machismo, I’m quite comfortable in my hair suit. It just fits.

So when my editor passed along a recent study regarding men and their grooming habits, my shag stood on end. Apparently women don’t like hairy men. According to this survey conducted by Remington (who would have absolutely no interest in promoting shaving), 57 percent of women think poor grooming is a turnoff. Some of the findings were understandable, such as a vast majority of women disliking back and “bum” hair (“bum” being Remington’s term).

No, what was so disheartening as a fellow who proudly sports a fur jerkin is that a majority of women, 53 percent, endorse chest grooming. Granted, it’s just a bare majority (if I intended that pun, may God shave off my tongue), but in a democratic republic like ours that’s all it takes.

I was living blissfully unaware, along with the 83 percent of men in this study, and just letting my chest chia. But elections, even those in the form of a poll conducted by a nonpartial razor manufacturer, have consequences. It was my civic duty to whack the cleavage weeds. I needed something bold. I needed the help of a professional. I needed wax.

A certain stigma?

Enter the cosmetological experts at Salon Di Marco in downtown Lawrence and the steady hands of Tara Kuba. Tara is a master wax-slinger at Salon Di Marco, and she certainly had her work cut out for her.

Luckily, I have no pride or shame, so asking for the appointment and disrobing in a small room in front of a young woman didn’t really bother me. Not that it should. For some reason, more than likely because it’s perceived as “feminine,” waxing for men has a certain stigma. It’s an obviously hypocritical position on the part of men since our culture expects women to be perpetually, prepubescently hairless. Thank goodness gay men have struck a blow for equality, leveled the field, and made hairless dude-chests sexy.

On the flip side of the anti-depilatory sentiment, guys who wax their chests can be perceived as overly — oh, shall we say — “Schwarzeneggarian.” You know — those testosterone cases who work out too much and generally use liquid tan.

Another reason men don’t wax is that that they’ve all seen the scene from “The 40 Year Old Virgin” where Steve Carell gets his hair ripped off and takes Kelly Clarkson’s name in vain. After seeing his mutilated and bloody chest, most guys are just afraid of losing a nipple.

Anyway, I’m shirtless and lying on the table at Salon Di Marco. My chest hair is so long, trimming it before the waxing is discussed. I should have seen that as an ominous sign of things to come, but being foolhardy, I dismiss the trim. A pot of hot wax and a stack of tongue depressors lay on a tray next to me. A halo lamp shines an unforgiving light on my pasty flesh. I feel like a cadaver in an operating theater. It’s go time.

Let it rip

Tara powders my chest with talc, to prevent the wax from sticking to the skin, then slathers on the botanical-based goo near my collar bone. It’s hot, but certainly not scalding. She lays a cloth strip over the matted hair and wax, pats the strip firmly so the wax will cling, then swiftly yanks.

You know that sensation when you rip off a Band-Aid? Multiply that by a quantum factor of Stephen Hawking proportions. I see starbursts. My eyes bug out, and I white-knuckle the table. Rather than screaming, my first response is to start laughing. It’s a nervous reaction. Tara must think I’m a giggling masochist. I won’t lie — that hurt like a beast.

But subsequent strips aren’t nearly as bad. You build up a tolerance rather quickly. I still hold my breath and tense up before each stroke, but you get into a groove. Tara is working so quickly that you don’t have time to pause and reflect on the radical terraforming taking place just below your neck. Nipple work still snaps you to attention, however.

In only about 10 minutes, the deed is done. My chest has been deforested. In the wake of the waxing, my torso is dotted with dozens of bloody little pinpricks — collateral damage for the sake of a sleek chest. Tara adds a soothing coat of tea tree oil, and that’s that. I’m now an inflamed, pink Ken doll from the waist up.

For the rest of the day, I can’t walk for any extended period of time. The raw chest rubbing up against the fabric of my shirt is agony. It being a cold day, my “high beams” are on, which compounds the excruciating friction. I don’t complain too much, though. A lady friend of mine suggested I imagine what it would be like to get a Brazilian. Horrifying food for thought.

It’s been a few days now, and the pain has slowly morphed into itching. I’m told this is normal and should clear up before long. What won’t clear up any time soon is the doughy, shapeless physique that no longer has a follicular sweater to hide behind. If anything, this experience has taught me I need to work out. I’m a featureless tube of bloat without the chest hair. I’m pretty sure the women in that survey might reconsider their vote if they saw me shirtless right now.

Another thing I’ve learned is that women deserve our undying respect for maintaining this kind of regimen in far more sensitive areas of their bodies. Thanks to a societal double standard, I’m allowed to be blissfully gross and hairy without much consequence. Women are frowned upon in polite society if they don’t pluck and wax and shave and laser and generally slash and burn themselves. I would tip my hat to you, ladies, if it didn’t hurt so much to move my arms right now.

first of all, latex gloves are not part of state boards requirements.

second of all, she's not double dipping. turn up your volume and you can hear her pile of sticks. additionally, if she were double dipping, each time she picked up the supposed old stick, she'd having a cloth strip stuck to it because that's what she's laying it down on.

Tara's waxing services are the height of cleanliness and efficiency. And that's exactly what I want in an aesthetician. Job well done!

Men....do not go down this path! You'll regret it. When I think of all of the trimming and shaping we women go through I want to shake these guys with weirdly manicured eyebrows and shaved arms and say WAKE UP. You can't go back so easily! That itch Gavon talked about doesn't just impact you. Ouch.

cheese..some of us already did the men down there discussion..off the threads.

I agree with you. Once it starts growing back, just like the chest hair, it's a cactus I'd rather not have my sensitive areas close too, and my mates have missed sex I would have eagerly joined or initiated, just because I was avoiding the discomfort. Nothing kills the sexual momentum like repeated pain.(SMBDers cry foul!)

Trimmed if outrageous is okay..shaved is not necessary although I will admit less is great. I've been with both.

Outrageous hair might limit some activities. But then, some men are more limited in their activities than others so this might not matter. There are still men out there that don't feel this discussion isn't at all necessary as it's a three minute process no one is going to be looking at and they're going to be thinking about Pamela Anderson anyway.

How do the ladies feel about the length of time it takes to shave down there...and then their man spends a fraction of the shaving time down their only to quit and see to their own needs? Makes you want to get up, go home and put a new profile on a dating site, right?

As usual, Multi has me in stitches! I personally resent the time it takes to shave armpits and legs; therefore, I only do it when I know there's going to be good reason to. Yep, that's what I mean. I personally prefer men with hairy chests. No, not King Kong, but if you're nestled into the guy's arms afterward and you think "Geez, where's my tweezer and he'll be a smoothie", the man just doesn't have enough chest hair.

Now, Multi, I want to ask you and all the other ladies out there who dare to answer the question...How do we feel about men shaving the "hair down there"? I'm gonna get in trouble for this(ha ha), but I personally think men should leave there what the good Lord gave them. Otherwise, they will be forced into a perpetual state of pubic smoothness. Men, you wonder why? When a man shaves "there" and then lets it grow back, it's like making love to a cactus!

If removing hair is a must, why not do it where it is really gross -- ears and nose? Surely, insects aren't so bad that hair is needed there to keep the bugs out.

A lady I work with thinks my chest hair is “sexy.”

---for a proper understanding of the above statement, some context is vital: please define "work." and, you "work" shirtless? "tote that barge, lift that bail? ya' gets a little drunk and ya lands in jail?"


Right on Labmonkey, ya beat me to it: Men scrape their faces. until quite recently, for hundreds of years they, or their barbers, did it with something that easily could have cut their throats! then, after scraping the face and opening a thousand little wounds, they're expected to put on cologne, or worse, "bracer." yes, put some alcohol on all them little cuts, but don't act like it hurts, because that would be unmanly. no, you are supposed to like it and it is good for you!

and, by the way, according to the comments under the women's hair/shaving LTE, I am natural or liberated because I do not shav...anywhere.
you'll just have to guess about my chest hair...I don't show it to simply anyone or at work.

Did someone say Speedo? http://www.rumproast.com/images/uploads/g_gordon_liddy.jpg

lab, don't get me wrong. I've dated a few men who've said, "You don't have to color or bleach your hair to go out with me, let it go natural, my hair is going gray!I prefer women with natural hair.."and then they go off on a rant about their ex's hair adventures, hehe. One was good, I ran into his ex unexpectedly up close, walking by one night at a performance and saw her current hair color and had the hardest time not bucking at the knees giggling.Yeppers, no human has that as a natural shade. You all know me, you can just imagine. My shoulders shook silently in my seat for a while.

Or "Heck, I've almost lost most of mine!". The rare ones that said, I don't care if you shave your legs, I don't, why waste your time, you have too little time as is". But those men are rare in my discussions. This has been going around behind the scenes, and I also read on dating sites. You won't see many men who check that their ideal date can have gray, silver or salt and pepper hair..if they've checked preferences. Some say it doesn't matter, but I've emailed with some who've said they don't dated women with gray hair.These are men who themselves have well gone into gray or beyond, perhaps have lost a great deal of hair.

Maybe they should have a check box for shaving preferences. This sounds like it's more important now days than religion.

One thing I've noticed when my date/husband shaved their chests, is that when the hair started to grown back in..it's still in a growing upright from the skin and short enough to be stiff, like a spike... same as a woman's legs are. Think of a man's beard when it's very short it's much sharper then when it's 1/2 inch long.

Therefore they are more prickly than when they are longer and lay flatter or have curled. (This isn't news, I'm just passing it along for thought.)

Okay guys..think of what rubs up against your chest..when it's that shaved hair is prickly. Let's just say..I've definitely avoided close front to front contact with my husband when he's been in the post shave stage between growing it back in..or until they shave again. I don't rub these against cactus either.

Smooth is fine, but I remember sadness to come close and then draw back in discomfort at 1/4+ sharp hairs that I used to enjoy being close to thinking how long it will be until those grow back.But they put up with our whims, don't they ladies? LOL.

If your hair is forming a ruffle above your collar to make King George jealous, sure, go for it, but unless you're big foot, some fur probably isn't worth shaving the chest. Just my experience..experiment at will.

Irish, thanks for the women's point of view. I would never go the waxing route. It takes 5 minutes once a week to shave your chest. Thankfully, I've never had a hairy back, except for a little on the lower part. My small butt is as smooth as a baby. I do lift weights and I like the way my shaven chest looks. For me, it's probably a matter of vanity. Most women I know don't like hairy men, or seeing a man in a speedo.

Multi-

I think you put too much expectation on yourselves. I have made fun of girlfriends in the past when they spent an hour that would have been better spent sleeping putting makeup on. I think I have only seen my wife in makeup twice (and I have seen very few women who NEED makeup). There are times I have wondered what someone actually looks like, but I would have to take a jackhammer to her face to remove all the makeup.

As for shaving....I am not saying women have it easy...but what grows on our face is much tougher than what grows on your legs and armpits....and unless we're bankrobbers it is something we cannot hide if we screw up.

American women spend HOURS on grooming each day to go to jobs, rushing rushing rushing, rushing to care for families, getting it all done. Husbands complain their wives are tired, don't want sex, don't have time for them. The kids are shuttled from activity to tv, mom saying not now honey, I've got to cook, do laundry, then she's got to squeeze in touching up the polish that chips each day I don't care what you do sometimes, hair, ironing her work attire, and she may have to bring work home to finish. It is no wonder women stress eat? That couples are stressed out with each other?

We've created expectations that are unnatural. We've placed too many demands that aren't necessary. Men don't have to go to that many extras to go to work each day. But let me tell you, if I hadn't gone into most of my jobs without full makeup, hose, complete hairdos with a good amount of styling, nails polished each day, it would have been noted I wasn't taking care of myself. I saw others go down that didn't.

Have you men experienced seeing a male boss happen to glance down and take note of the one day you didn't have time to do your nail polish and make a brief negative face? (When you've had your nails done quite well 98% of the time because you're really quite good at them?)

Is your job done less well because your legs have hair, or your nails have polish, or your hair is curled with an iron or bleached and dyed?

Honestly I would say it might be, because you could have used that time for other more necessary things like exercise and good food preparation. Substitute your shaving time for jumping jacks before you shower. It would be a lot better for you.☺

Thank you! I was thinking after the other article, that I should suggest women put their mates up to a challenge. The mates should duplicate the women's hair removal practices,in full,for 3 months. (1 month wouldn't be long enough for some of the methods to repeat the process & the side effects)

I do mean in all areas whether it be: Shaving once a day, Shaving twice a day. Waxing, Plucking, Laser removal, Epilady etc. Men learning the true daily time consumption, the sealed over hair follicles becoming infected or cause reddened spots ruining the nice look you were hoping to achieve. The nicks that sting & bleed on your sheets & towels, your socks, pantyhose or slacks because you didn't notice & hurriedly got dressed in the A.M.

Shaving in the A.M. so they'll be smooth all day, then having stubble nightly when you lay in bed, prickly legs together.So you have to shave again P.M., though you're exhausted & really need to fall into bed.

Late off work,a movie date, drinks at a club he loves that doesn't serve food, knowing there will be sex later & you haven't eaten. You have 2 choices, eat the dinner you really need to because you had no time for much lunch,or knowing the date will fuss because your legs aren't silky so you have to jump in the tub & shave, starve all night.

Safely? Seen the contortions ladies go through to shave everyday in wet soapy showers? If you aren't taking a bath, you're standing up. Bending down to shave, water runs along your back into your hair. Not good. Often there is no high enough ledge to solve this so they remember ballet class & stick one leg up on the opposite wall, or on a soap ledge, so they are balanced on one foot. Then they twist & turn the whole body (men, try it sometime) in odd angles to access all sides of each leg in turn, repeated strokes with a razor. Sure, they've done it many times, they are pros. but one false step, one bit of soap on the shower floor...Just ask the docs how many bathroom accidents there are each year. "Yes, I broke my shoulder shaving when I fell out of the shower, a concussion". It happens.

Men would never put up with this garbage. Put this 'no hair daily routine' on men, ladies.

If you have to have your points up high, they better get a implant in their curb feeler too. Let's get that thing perky & lovely to look at all the time too. If we're not allowed to naturally lay down where gravity takes us, neither are they.

Some men pick the size of their women's implants. Shouldn't we get to pick the size of theirs? Everyone, have a nice, sunny, natural gravity filled day. Prune as YOU desire, not as society demands.

Oh & no joke,my desktop image? It's been on there for over a month. I ordered the movie for Christmas. I love this actor. http://thecia.com.au/reviews/h/images/human-nature-2.jpg
