Women and their battle against body hair in any way, shape or form has raged on for years. When it comes to men, however, this natural occurrence typically isn’t given a second thought. Until now. In recent years, men have grown to become just as self conscious about their body hair and overall appearance as their female counterparts. The good news for the men is that in the case of excessive body hair, there is a solution, which is now commonly known as “manscaping.”
Manscaping is a catchy term that describes any process involving the removal of hair or using special grooming techniques for men. There are a few ways to go about cutting down on the amount of hair on the body. It is best for men to do their homework, figure out what their options are and then try it out for themselves and observe the results.
Manscaping techniques are ideal for not just the face but the body as well. Maintaining male facial hair is already a part of most men’s morning routines, which include shaving, trimming and styling a beard, mustache, goatee, side burns and even dreaded nose hairs. These areas are fairly simple to manage but manscaping that targets excessive body hair could be a challenge for first timers.
The chest, back and underarms are typically areas where most men use manscaping techniques. While the automatic solution would be to simply shave it all off, it is important for men to understand that whatever they shave will not only grow back, it will come in thicker - not to mention that the act of shaving will be one they’ll have to continue basically the rest of their lives. Instead of dealing with the side effects of this particular method, a more beneficial manscaping technique would be to “trim” instead of shave. This method involves cutting down long, thick body hair as opposed to removing it completely. Depending on the amount of body hair a man has on his chest/stomach, back and underarms, a special trimmer can be used with a guard to create a uniform appearance or special scissors. An electric razor with a guard is ideal for manscaping the chest, stomach and back, while special trimming scissors is good for snipping long underarm hairs. The best results are those where the hair overall is uniform in length, free of random thick patches and not cut too close to the skin.
Excessive leg and arm hair on men is usually not a big deal but if you can’t stand it, there is the option of waxing or laser hair removal. Shaving isn’t recommended for these particular areas because of the side effects mentioned above. Waxing and trimming are also good methods for men whose rear ends may have a bit too much hair than they feel comfortable with. When it comes to waxing, it’s best to have this done professionally at a local day spa or salon that offers these services. Because more and more men are turning to manscaping, there is no need to feel embarrassed when making your appointment - the professionals that perform these services have seen it all and will make sure you’re comfortable throughout the process.
