WaxWorks Moves To Alex Burton Salons

For lots of good reasons which I'm sure many of our clients will appreciate, I've decided to move the Waxworks studio to another location. The new salon is situated closer to West Loop 610 and the Galleria Mall in the Briargrove Shopping Center. 

Our waxing facility is part of Alex Burton Salons - with its own suite and plenty of free parking outside. Customers will enjoy the quiet, serene environment together with the same personalized attention given to each of our waxing customers.

Leg Waxing Houston

Leg waxing in Houston

Waxing your legs is a procedure that if done properly will result in creamy-smooth skin which can last for weeks. The art of leg waxing has been practiced in one form or another for centuries. Today it is best performed in a salon by a trained aesthetician.

Pre-waxing Steps
The best outcome requires a little preparation. First make sure your leg hair is long enough before you have it waxed. One-quarter of an inch is the perfect length so the wax can grip and hold it to pull it out; any longer and it could be uncomfortable.

It's also a good idea to exfoliate the skin several days prior to waxing. This makes removing the hair easier - and eliminating dead skin cells helps prevent ingrown hairs.

Waxing Men In Houston

Male waxing in Houston

You don't have to operate a waxing salon in Houston to know that male hair waxing has increased by leaps and bounds over the last few years. Just what's going on that so many men have decided to wax their "nether regions" aka the Brazilian wax which removes all pubic hair? We know the weather is hot in Houston and so are the men, though we suspect that "she" is likely hinting for her man to wax it smooth.

Perhaps he is just curious about how removing body hair feels, or maybe males are becoming more hygiene aware. Whatever his motivation, there is little doubt that more men are talking about waxing these days and seeking out a local aesthetician.

Affordable Body Waxing

Cheap body waxing

While many of the waxing salons here in Houston offer cheap prices, to compensate, they might use low-cost, poor-quality wax, double-dip or re-use their supplies on another customer. And to those who want to save money, affordable should not equate to receiving poor service either, yet very often it does.

At WaxWorks Skincare you are always assured of the highest-quality imported wax, brand new supplies, a squeaky-clean facility, affordable rates and most importantly, caring, attentive service by an experienced aesthetician who values your business and your desire for waxed perfection.

WaxWorks Near Galleria, 77057

Besides finding a competent, experienced aesthetician who you can trust, another factor for choosing a waxing salon is its location. And if you're like many Houstonians, you ask, "where can I find a place to wax near me?"

Galleria Mall
Fortunately for customers, our Galleria area waxing salon is located in near-west, central Houston on Westheimer Rd. and very accessible from Loop 610 West, Hwy 59 and Interstate 10. Everyone in Houston knows how to quickly find the Galleria mall - and our waxing facility is just down the street.

Alex Burton Salon Studios
Traveling west from the Galleria Mall on Westheimer, look for the Alex Burton Salon Studios building in the Briargrove Shopping Center between Potomac Dr. and Briar Ridge Dr. Our Waxworks waxing studio is conveniently situated inside the Alex Burton building and there's always plenty of free parking available.

Bikini Waxing Stops Pubic Lice

bikini waxing

Pubic lice, the crab-shaped insects that have dwelled in human groins since the beginning of history, are disappearing. Doctors say bikini waxing may be the reason.

Waning infestations of the bloodsuckers have been linked by doctors to pubic depilation ... More than 80 percent of college students in the U.S. remove all or some of their pubic hair ... The trend [bikini waxing] suggests an alternative way of stemming one of the globe's most contagious sexually transmitted infections. ...

Clipping, waxing and shaving the groin destroy the optimal habitat of pubic lice. The practice has helped spur sales of depilatory products for companies such as Procter & Gamble Co. and Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc.

"Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations," said Ian F. Burgess, a medical entomologist with Insect Research & Development Ltd. in Cambridge, England. "Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species."

Back Waxing for Men

before & after photo
Back waxing for men has become increasingly common these days. More and more guys are requesting hair removal services ...and waxing the back has become a priority at salons. Sometimes men just want the hair removed for themselves, or they want it done to please others.

Regardless of the reasons, men everywhere are electing to rid themselves of this sometimes unsightly and unwanted body hair.

Waxing vs Shaving
Waxing is preferred over shaving for a lot of reasons. Waxing removes hair by root extraction, so it lasts for longer periods, sometimes 4-5 weeks or more; just how long, depends upon the number of times you've been waxed and the frequency of appointments. Age and genetics are also additional factors that predetermine how long waxing lasts for the individual.

Shaving the back presents obvious problems. A man might have to shave his back every day, and unless you're a contortionist, it's likely you'll have difficulty reaching the middle of your back with a razor, which could also result in cuts - even if you're being careful. Thus, if you can manage to sit still for a few minutes each month, waxing can eliminate the hassle of shaving.
