Men’s grooming trends

Man are taking off their body hair just as women have for centuries.  Men’ s grooming has become a necessary routine and one of the biggest reasons – increased sex appeal and a “cleaner” feeling. Whatever the motivation, men are choosing to go through many different ways of hair removal to achieve that smooth look. Between waxing, shaving, electrolysis, tweezing, trimming, and laser hair removal, men of all ages, sizes, sexual orientations, ethnic backgrounds, and professions are getting rid of excess body hair.

We are here to help you by brining these hair removal trends for men to your attention. However, in figuring out what is best for you we still think a man should look like a man.

Waxing & Sugaring

Waxing is a hair removal trend for men that involves spreading hot wax on to the desired area, and then applying a strip of cloth or muslin onto the wax, rubbing it and ripping off the strip in one fell swoop — wax, hair, root, and all. Sugaring is similar to waxing, only it uses sugar paste (which usually consists of a mixture of sugar, lemon, water, and even citric acid and gum arabic) instead of wax and is a method of hair removal that goes as far back as ancient Egypt.

Men are booking appointments at beauty salons for eyebrow waxes. This really isn’t about becoming a pretty-boy — it’s about not walking around with a unibrow. Other areas men seek to wax is their backs, neck, chest and genital area.

Benefits of waxing

With repeated use, hair gradually becomes thinner because the roots are weakened, but the hair will grow back, albeit at longer intervals. So, if you want to lessen the hair that grows on your toes or chest without permanently abolishing it, this would be the ideal way to go.

Laser treatments

Laser hair removal requires several sessions and although it’s expensive, it can be considered an investment, as you will never need to worry about hair removal in the desired area again. Laser hair removal is especially popular for athletic men who feel that their body hair hinders their performance, and even men who want a tattoo on their back, for example.

Benefits of Laser treatments

This is the mother of all hair removal methods in terms of price and efficiency, so keep in mind that while your back might be a good place to eliminate hair for good, you might not want to say a permanent goodbye to other hairy parts (in which case waxing might be a better alternative).


With a good quality tweezers pluck away at the hairs. Unless you have lots of time on your hand and can withstand the constant pinching sensation of each hair being pulled. Strongly advise to save the tweezing for those smaller regions or for ingrown hairs.

Benefits Tweezing

Spending more for high-quality tweezers is worth the price. Don’t forget to keep up with regular maintenance.


When it comes to body hair that you’d like to keep short, electric trimmers can do the trick with no pain, fuss or mess.

Benefits of Trimmers

Great for those hard to get areas like ear hair, and nose hair.


A needle zaps the hair at its root and kills it. Electrolysis offers permanent results, but, of course, there is no guarantee and effectiveness varies from guy to guy, hair follicle to hair follicle. This procedure must be performed by a professional electrologist and requires weekly appointments for optimal results. The upside is that electrolysis weakens hairs at the root and eventually eliminates growth.

This is a great method to deal with Eyebrows (unibrow), sporadic hairs on face or neck.

Benefits of electrolysis

Rids of hair permanently, however, it’s time consuming and therefore expensive, save it for your unibrow or other small patches of hair that you want to get rid of for good.

With so many hair removal methods to choose from men have no reason to, let their pubic area grow out of control or to sport a unibrow. Man could stick to shaving only, but there are areas that are sensitive and shaving might cause irritation, razor burns or even nasty cuts.
