    any advice on removing my hair on my back. Is there a way I can do this myself w/o the help of my gf. I am thinking about buying a "man groomer" or something.

    I heard about laser hair removal but its way too expensive.

    any other advice that I can do on my own w/o the aid of anyone else

    depends on how hairy u are. some guys have no hair, others have just a bit and others are covered. If it's just a little you can shave it urself if it is in a location where that's possible and not a whole lot of hair. Or you may wanna get it waxed. Sometimes I shave mine (moderate amount) myself and other times I have gone to get it waxed (about $25 and takes about 15-20 minutes). Electrolosis (sp?) may be an option, but yes laser would be expensive. Doesur gf want it off? If u don;t wanna ask her assistance in finding a place, just go to a regular salon that has waxing. But not a expensive prissy salon, they will charge a lot just like they do for hair care. Just go to a moderate looking place and ask. The place I gvet my hair cut for $12 does waxing. I never get mine done there, but just to give you an idea of the places that do it.

    hi, i'm a beauty specialist and among others i do IPL permanent hair removal.

    it's true laser is expensive and painfull.
    IPL isn't cheap either, but it's not as expensive as laser. And the treatments are only once in the 9 to 12 weeks for the back area.
    I charge € 240 per treatment and you would need about 8 to 10 treatments.
    Remember once it's al gone you ride of your problem.
    I don't know if the prices are the same where you live, but i thought i'd let you know.

    Good luck!

    well I dont really have a lot of hair....its not very thick....just spread out kind of all over my back.

    my gf says she enjoys my back hair...but I cant stand it. everytime I go out to the pool or lake.....where there are other guys w/o shirts on....I never see back hair on guys.

    I dont know where I can get my hair waxed. I get my hair cut at Great clips and I dont think they offer waxing.

    I hear that waxing hurts like bitch.

    Here is a home laser hair remover for the price of one treatment.

    I am getting patches of back hair and would also like to remove them permenantly, I tried waxing this summer but the resulting spots were much less attractive than the hair!
    I'm thinking of buying the scanning laser hair remover which costs £199.

    LOL, great reason - it would be difficult to sue them if it hurt! :biggrin1:
    It is a British company which is the next best thing!:rolleyes:

    Get used to it, unless you resort to permanent hair removal you'll be facing a lifetime of waxing. It ain't the worst thing a guy can have.
