Menzone was founded in 2004 with the basic premise of offering men a private discrete option for their hair removal needs and quickly became known as experts in male waxing. The infamous back crack and sack, and male Brazilian are our speciality.
About Bruce @ Chippendale
People often ask how I got into men's waxing. It is, after all, a somewhat unusual occupation. And strangely enough, I don't seem to recall "bum waxer" being one of the options discussed with my career guidance counsellor in high-school!
I established Menzone in 2004, however my introduction to men's waxing started soon after puberty. Like most guys my initial attempts to "tame the forest down there" started with shaving, clipping and depilatory creams. Pretty quickly (and prickly) I ended up at my local Pharmacy buying DIY waxing kits because the earlier attempts were messy, ineffective, or the results were just too short lived. In the years that followed while I pursued a corporate career, my male genital waxing skills were honed on myself. And you can't get better training than that! Initially,
I actually studied a Business Degree, and one of my first jobs post-university was as a product manager for a brand of depilatories that included retail & professional products sold in to beauty salons. As part of this role I was trained in waxing techniques as I had to demonstrate and train the Beauty Therapists utilizing our products.
Fast forward and after a 6 year stint in Senior Management, I was stressed to my eyeballs, miserable and in desperate need of a career and lifestyle change. So I sold the BMW, hung up the Armani suits and went off to the Australasian College of Natural Therapies to study Massage & Beauty Therapy.
Although by this stage I was already pretty skilled with a wax strip and could show a few things to even the most senior waxers, especially when it came to male pubic waxing.
Initially Menzone was established with a focus on massage & alternative health therapies, however my reputation as a skilled and professional waxing therapist grew quickly, and Menzone has become the leading male grooming studio for guys who are after a private, discrete alternative to the salon experience.
About John @ Chatswood
Born of Greek parents I had a moustache by primary school. I guess I didn't have it that bad... so did my sister.
I grew up in Sydney's West in a typical anglo community and I could see I was different... hairy! With hairy arms, hairy legs and sideburns that left me nicknamed 'Little Elvis'. I would often use my mother's or my sister's pink 'ladyshave' in the shower and was always amazed at the difference of smooth hairless skin, venturing to all different parts of my body.
Then came a very early puberty and a thicker darker coat of hair started to take over areas of my body that I didn't even know hair could grow. I often experimented with shaving and the veet creams bought sheepishly at the pharmacy but my skin often reacted with irritation, redness, dryness and the hairs shot through quicker than I could say five o'clock shadow.
As a child my aunt ran a home based business offering waxing, facials and selling Avon products mostly for girlfriends and ladies of the church our family attended. Every now and again she would 'freshen up' my teenage hairy arms much to my fathers dislike.
So there you have my first taste of waxing. I was very close to my aunt and we shared a common interest in natural health and healing. I started a very early career in the health industry studying nutrition, eye analysis, herbal medicine and have always taken great care of myself and of my clients, friends and family.
I have worked over the last ten years with people suffering with allergies, skin problems and love being able to offer understanding, advice and support in a natural and wholistic way. With fond memories of my aunt taking care of my 'hair complex' I am very proud to have a business where I can work from home in a tranquil and discreet environment and take care of my clients hair removal and after care.
