It’s time we talked about your body hair and what is manscaping? Follow my advice for a perfectly groomed body. The kidnapping of men is one of the worst terms on earth, but it is something we must.
1. IT HAS THE CORRECT TOOL:
In my time, I have experimented with many different things to tame and trim the hair on my body. I shaved, I waxed, I used depilatory creams and I also cut.
- Shaved off:
o You run the risk of having ingrown hairs, especially around the crotch area.
o The feeling that the body hair grows back can be really uncomfortable. It can sting like nothing!
o Waxing is ideal for treating the hair on the back. It will take everything away and it will last a good amount of time.
o For other areas, waxing can be quite difficult to do well and will require a friend or a trip to a salon.
- Depilatory cream:
o If this goes wrong, you will know.
o One minute above the “maximum of 5 minutes” will leave your skin in a hot and itchy rash. No amount of moisturizer will eliminate the sting. Believe me seriously.
o The use of an electric mower is my preferred method.
o You can choose what length you want.
o You can use the same trimmer for your facial hair.
o It is the fastest method.
2. CHOOSE THE CORRECT LENGTH:
There is no right or wrong length for body hair, but you must keep everything clean.
Prepared, not bald.
Or you really want to get this waxed. Seriously. Back hair is not – and will never be – in trend.
o If you are a guy with thick facial hair, the hair on your chest should complement this. If you take everything off, there will be an imbalance of hair throughout your body.
o I would always recommend starting a long time with your trimmers and review in different stages.
o Go as short as you feel comfortable with.
o You can go so much or so little with this.
o If you are sticking out of your shirt, take off the length a little.
o The recommended length is a 2-3 grade clipper.
o The guys who go to the gym tend to be quite short.
- Pubic hair
o The easiest area to trim: keep part of the hair, but make it clean.
o A grade 1-2 clipper is ideal. Once again, this is all personal choice.
Or you want to try to remove as much hair as possible here. It will take time, but it’s worth it.
o Use the bare trimmer against your skin, using it in short, slow movements. Be very, very careful.
- Perineum (also known as grundle/gooch)
o Like your balls, you want to keep this area completely trimmed.
or as close as possible
o If you are going to buy wax for your back, consider doing it at the same time.
or yes, we are keeping this trimmed as well.
o Not too short, but you want to be able to see the skin.
o Once again, you can get this waxed. I’ve never done it, but some guys swear it.
3. Do it in the shower:
This is more about cleaning instead of some magical technique.
It will keep all the hair contained in one place and you can shower immediately afterward.
4. Make it dry:
Even if you’re doing it in the shower, keep the shower off until you’re done.
- Wet hair can clump together and adhere to the skin.
- Dry hair will allow a closer and more precise cut.
