Man Thing does not pretend to be a glamorous beauty salon. It's a male-first studio specifically aimed at guys. That means it's simple, attitude-free, and relaxed.
Men's Waxing is the most popular treatment I provide.
It's not just a tagged on service - It's what I'm best known for. In fact, my first shop in Brisbane was the very first Male Waxing studio in Queensland.
Throughout the beauty industry, Man Thing is regarded as THE pioneer and specialist studio.
That's not a boast, but some serious comfort for guys who are considering a first time wax and don't know who to trust.
I want to show you that removing men's body hair is one of my specialties, and I want my male clients to feel comfortable in their surroundings.
So that's the big sell. I hope you liked it 😊
Below, you'll find loads of info on Men's Waxing as well as prices and preparation tips.
Have a brilliant day,

What advice do you have for before and after-care?
I've put together this universal list of male waxing tips and tricks to help ensure the best outcome from your waxing treatment.
Regardless of whether you come to me or go somewhere else, I hope you find it useful.
How much does male waxing hurt?
As a general guide, the feeling is like being slapped with a plastic ruler and fades quickly. Follow up treatments are gentler than the first, as the hair hasn't had time to fully develop.
Why do men get waxed?
What type of guys get waxed?
The range and reasons for seeking waxing treatments are diverse, and chances are, my current clients are not so different to you.
To date, my youngest male client is a 9 year old boy with a monobrow, and my oldest an 87 year old man who wanted to surprise his wife for their wedding anniversary.
What are the most common areas that men get waxed?
A back wax is definitely the most common area as both men and their partners find hairy backs irritating night and day. Close second and third places would be bum cracks and Manzilians.
Can you perform massage after a waxing treatment?
Yes, if you also want remedial massage, I can do that using after-wax lotion instead of oil to minimise the chance of infection.
What could prevent me having a male waxing treatment?
This is a big topic. Medications, diseases, and skin disorders, are among the many contraindications for waxing that might make you unsuitable for treatment.
Will my Therapist be male or female?
I shouldn't have to qualify this question but I will. Your therapist will be me, Andrew Thompson, a male with 20+ years experience in the Australian beauty industry, and over 30 years working with naked human bodies as an artist, sports practitioner, remedial massage therapist, and acupuncturist.
If you have issues with my gender, regardless of my experience and unblemished reputation over three decades, please go somewhere else.
Can you do a waxing outcall to my home?
Unfortunately no, it would make the treatment too expensive. Wax pots take around 40 minutes to heat up, and we would have to charge for that time. If we preheat the pots, then we risk spillage during transportation, which again is a costly (and messy) affair.
I'm curious about getting IPL instead. Can I find out more?
Sure. The IPL Hair Removal page is the biggest section of the website. To save replication here, check out:
Is waxing permanent?
Over a long period, waxing may have a general thinning effect but if you stop waxing, it will regrow to something near its previous levels. This of course depends on your age.
Can I book a spray tan for after my wax?
Unfortunately no. The after-wax lotion will create a barrier between your skin and the tanning solution. Ideally you should leave the after-wax lotion on, then go for a spray tan in a day or two.
