INFORMATION FOR WAXING MODELS

Axiom Bodyworks are male grooming specialists, committed to providing high quality training for fellow therapists in the art of men's waxing.

We are always on the lookout for male models across the UK to help with our popular face, body and Brazilian waxing workshops.

What you need to know

We need models in all areas of England, Scotland and Wales for the following:

  • Facial waxing (eyebrows, ears, nostrils)
  • Body waxing (chest, stomach, back, shoulders, legs)
  • Brazilian waxing (groin and buttocks)
    • You can volunteer to be a demonstration model or a practice model, but ideally you will have previous experience of waxing so that you know what to expect.

      Demonstration models will be waxed by a male tutor. In the case of group workshops, techniques will be demonstrated in front of a small class of students that may include both male and female attendees.

      Practice models will be waxed by students and overseen at all times by a tutor. Classes may include both male and female students.

      Body waxing techniques are performed using a mixture of non-strip peelable wax and soft wax removed with paper strips. All facial and intimate waxing is carried out using non-strip wax.

      Changing facilities and baby wipes are available for you to freshen up before your appointment.

      Your wax treatment is free of charge and you will be provided with aftercare products where necessary.

Restrictions

All models must be over 18 years of age and are required to complete a health consultation before waxing can take place.

Contagious or infectious skin conditions will prevent us from waxing the affected area until the condition has completely cleared (for intimate waxing, this includes STIs and urinary tract infections).

Clients taking Roaccutane must wait 6 months after finishing their medication before receiving a waxing treatment.

We are unable to remove hair from sore or sunburnt skin, or from skin that has been treated with steroid creams, Retin-A, Differin or other retinoid acne medication within the last 3 months.

Waxing is not suitable for people with lymph oedema, severe haemophilia, or those with diabetes that is not managed by diet, exercise or medication.

How to prepare for your treatment

Upon agreeing a date, we will contact you with directions to the training venue and an arrival time for the day. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can't make it or if you are running late.

If possible, please shower before your appointment and gently exfoliate the areas you are having waxed for a few days beforehand. This helps to remove excess dead skin cells and lifts the hair for better results.

Do not shave or use hair removal creams (e.g. Veet) on the area for at least 3 weeks prior to your appointment, as hair needs to be a minimum of ½ cm long in order to wax successfully. If you are already getting waxed on a regular basis, you will need to leave at least 4 weeks between treatments.

You will not be able to sunbathe or exercise for 24 hours after your appointment, so please bear this in mind when making plans.
