Manscaping – Mens Grooming
Mens grooming takes on a manscaping’
Say ladies, have you noticed there seems to be more men turning up these days with smooth chests or backs, arms or legs?? It’s happening by way of a new mens grooming technique called manscaping! Manscaping has actually been around for a couple of years now, but has caught on and is on the ‘mens grooming” services at barber shops, hair salons and spa’s as of late.
Adds Manscaping”How hairy is your man? Does the amount of hair bother either of you? I guess ‘manscaping’ is like ‘landscaping’ on a man in my mind. The definition I have seen most is “the modern term for removal of body hair by shaving or waxing”. It may sound crazy to some, but salons report men are into the hair removal process almost as much as women. Men are trimming and/or eliminating any extra hair that may be on their chests, backs, arms, faces and anywhere else that they may desire (other additional area options are not on the menu).
I remember the days when men only removed their hair for body building competitions, swimming or wrestling, and now it has become a common occurrence. Now when a man has his shirt opened 3 buttons down, the chest hair is no longer there and it is silky smooth. My guess would be the men that would receive waxing services are very much into personal grooming and possibly in the group categorized as “metrosexuals” who are into grooming in all ways as much as women, but still a woman’s man.
It is not new anymore for a man to have a standing appointment at a hair salon or spa to receive their waxing treatments. They may select to have the hair removed by shaving, waxing, tweezing or the more permanent method of laser hair removal.
The pricing for mens hair removal may be a bit higher than womens because often additional product is needed for an area. A local salon called “Spa Forever” in Chicago’s Bucktown area caters to both men and womens waxing services. Prices for lip, ear, cheek and chin areas range from $15.00 and up for each area and for full back or full chest waxing starting at $60.00 and up for each area.
I imagine ‘Manscaping’ will be the big, mens grooming service requested as we drift into spring and summer months. I am picturing all these smooth chested 20, and 30 something’s soaking up the rays on the beach this summer!! (Someone better tell them to put a little more sunscreen on when first getting out there . . . with less hair, they will more likely have a bigger burn factor going on, don’t you think?
