Sports stars have a public image to uphold, so looking their best is always on the top of their list.

Not only do athletes remove unwanted hair for their public image but athletes also get rid of excess hair to improve athletic performance. An example of a famous waxing enthusiast is none other than football star, Christiano Ronaldo. Not only does waxing help his perfectly sculpted body look great but it also helps his performance on the pitch. learn more about why our Gold Wax is good for male waxing

Body builders also take to waxing for unwanted hair. Nearly all body builders have hair removal needs. For example, if men have thick chest hair, how can they show off those strong chest muscles under all that hair? Waxing helps body builder’s show off all their hard work and time spent in the gym.

Another athlete who takes to waxing is the swimmer, who also needs to get their hair removed since the long hair would drag them down in the water. Smooth skin for a swimmer is essential to their performance which is why most swimmers choose waxing over shaving due to the fact that when shaving, it needs to be done almost every day whereas waxing can leave skin smooth for between two to six weeks

So not only can waxing help you stay smoother for longer but it can also be used to help improve athletic performance whether it’s on the field, in the pool or in the gym. Harley Wax are proud sponsors of the Cape Epic
