A LAD rakes in a whopping £30,000 a year from manscaping blokes' bits – making their privates 'look pretty', bigger and leaving their wives and girlfriends thrilled.
Ricky Prady, who runs Hair & Waxing by Ricky Prady, has been a hair stylist for 21 years, specialising in unisex hair cuts and colours.
But a casual enquiry from a client about whether the hair guru could wax other areas 15 years ago planted a seed that has blossomed into a lucrative branch of the company that men can't get enough of.
On top of regular hair styling, the 37-year-old now also offers all aspects of waxing from blokes' eyebrows to their toes, with regulars returning every four to six weeks.
Ricky admits he's seen a variety of shapes and sizes over the years and that getting up close and personal during full-body waxes, which includes the shaft and pubic triangle, no longer fazes him.
Not content with simply whipping off the hair willy nilly, Ricky ensures a perfect blend from the intimate area into the legs to ensure there's no visible line.

Although repeat clients are thrilled with the results, Ricky admits that some still find it taboo and joke if he sees them in the street not to reveal how he knows them.
The businessman, from Billericay in Essex, said: "I earn £30,000 a year from manscaping alone, I also do ladies and men's haircuts and colours too.
"A lot of men find it very taboo and don't want to talk about the things they get done, but I think it should be something that men are comfortable talking about.
"A lot of people say to me 'oh if you bump into me in the high street don't say how you know me'. It's quite funny.
