A unibrow will not win friends or influence dates. To take care of your brows, use tweezers to grab each hair as close to the root as you can; then yank assertively. Clean up stray hairs around the edges to sharpen the brow’s shape.
Don’t go overboard – most women say a hairy chest looks more masculine. You want to keep it a little longer than a half inch. It’ll look natural but tidy. If you like the bare look, go with a wax or prepare to shave every three days. Chest stubble looks and feels ridiculous.
Armpit hair can be a friendly forest for odour-causing bacteria, so keep it as short as possible. Trim it every couple of weeks with scissors or a trimmer. If you want it gone, use a razor in the shower, just like your wife does.
Waxing keeps you hairless for as long as six weeks, versus six days for shaving. See a professional, who will trim the hair with scissors before applying wax and using strips to rip it out from its roots. If you decide to go DIY, you’ll need a partner and the right razor. The Braun Multi Grooming Kit features a body grooming head that allows for maximum flexibility, with minimal fuss.
Unruly hair that’s sporting white flakes is never a good look. Treat a dry scalp with a dandruff-fighting shampoo and conditioner and keep cowlicks under control with a matte-finish hair clay.
6/ Nose & Ear Hair
Keep those growths out of sight with an ear-and-nose trimmer, or nose-hair scissors. Move with caution so you don’t give yourself a bloody nose. You can also have these areas waxed. Never pluck nose hair – that can clear a path for bacteria and allergens.
7/ Pubic Hair
Bushy is bad; bare is just plain weird. Use scissors to trim hair to about a centimetre, then run a clipper with a short guard up and down your inner thighs – and lightly over your scrotum – to tidy things up. Hold the skin taut to prevent any grabbing or nicking.
