At-Home Hair Removal Horror Stories

At-home hair removal horror stories

It was a dark and stormy night… your stubble was out of control, so you made the fateful decision to attempt hair removal at home. Alone. What ensued is a horrific saga of tragedy and gore that will forever haunt your nightmares… DUN DUN DUUUN!

Ok, that was a bit dramatic, but we hope (for your sake) it’s not a true story!

Here’s what is a true story: DIY hair removal is not for the faint of heart. There are so many reasons why it should be left to the pros. The following are cautionary tales… don’t let them happen to you!

Attack of the Poor Quality Wax

A cheap drugstore waxing kit may seem like a great idea, but (shocking twist!) there’s a reason why it’s cheap. The wax you get in that box just can’t hold a candle to the carefully formulated wax used by the pros.

At Waxxpot, we’re especially proud of our proprietary soft wax. It provides an extra protective barrier for extra comfort and is perfect for getting both coarse hairs and fine, baby hairs so nothing is left behind.

House of Pain

If you’re a masochist, you’ll love waxing yourself at home. Otherwise, DON’T.


The pain experienced during waxing can vary, but it mostly depends on the expertise of the person who’s doing it. Our Waxx Specialists are amazing at being quick, precise and soothing freshly waxed skin. So much better than lying on your bathroom floor trying not to psych yourself out.

Burned Alive

Newsflash: wax is hot. When you wax at home, it’s dangerously easy to overheat it and burn your skin. Especially in those extra sensitive areas. (Talk about torture!)

Ingrown Hairs of Horror

Again, you really can’t beat the expertise of our Waxx Specialists. They’re thoroughly vetted and then continuously trained on technique and post-wax care that significantly reduces the likelihood of ingrown hairs. No offense, but we’re guessing you probably can’t say the same?

Night of the Neverending Wax Session

True waxing professionals keep the process quick to decrease discomfort and get you in and out and on your way. Waxing yourself? Not quick. At all. It’s a lot of waxing, re-waxing (because you didn’t get it all the first time), gritting your teeth and closely examining areas of yourself you usually like to ignore. It’s your body hair holding you hostage in your own bathroom – a true nightmare!

What Lies in the Crevices

Some of the body parts you want to wax are likely some of the hardest for you to see and reach. Unless you’re a contortionist with a 3-way mirror, there’s no way you’re going to get every hair. Instead of twisting yourself into a grotesque pretzel, why not just head to Waxxpot, lay back, and leave it to the pros?

Book now! (…or else! Mwahahahaha)
