Jan 5, at 9: For the most part, we still do the whole dog and pony show to attract a potential mate and for guys, that usually involves the maintenance of facial and body hair.
So we decided to help the dudes out by asking several something girls to tell us what they really think about eyebrow waxing, back hair, mustaches and more. Because isn't it just better to just know? Is it weird when guys shave their legs? I used to date a guy that did this, but it's because he was a 'triathlete. Shave five seconds off your swim time? Unless he's a swimmer it's too feminine.
I'm not really into guys shaving any part of their body besides their face. It would seem like they are trying too hard and way too into their appearance. It takes away his manliness. Unless you're a pro athlete, just don't. What about when they shave their arms? Men should have some hair though unless it's just ridiculously dark and thick. Most baseball players do this, and we all know how they look. It's so unattractive when you're lying in bed next to a guy and his second-day shaved arm rubs against yours.
Depends on the girl. Some of us don't mind, while others are so not down. How do you feel about full-on beards? I gave it the ol' college try and lip locked with the guy several times since he was so cool, but I ultimately got tired of pulling beard hairs out of my mouth post-makeout.
Plus, it made me wonder how untamed he was… well, down there. Bring on the scruff all day long because that 5 o'clock shadow is hot. But keep those trimmers handy boys. Beards freak me out. It's like making out with Santa. It has to be a well-manicured beard though: I usually have to remind him that it's time to trim it or else he starts to resemble Jesus.
I think my guy is sexiest with a little scruff, usually about five to seven days after he shaves. It gives him a little bit of an edge without being too much of a caveman. Duck Dynasty-style beards are a total turnoff. David Beckham-style scruff, on the other hand, is a total turn on. Are they hot or not? Um, no… not even for the month of November. If not, ditch the mustache.
If a guy has a ton of confidence and it fits his 'look' I think it can be pretty cool. Otherwise, it just looks strange. I'm sorry but no matter how hot you are you can't rock a mustache. It will take any guy from a 10 to a 1. Get rid of your mustache, like, now unless you're a hipster, born in the '60s or a registered sex offender, that is.
To manscape or not to manscape… down there? Ball fros are a big no-no. Nobody wants to scrape one off the tongue, but if you're smoother than me we have a problem! I'm not trying to come back up and cough up a hairball mid-hanky panky. I'm indifferent to the shave it all scenario. I don't hate it, and I don't love it.
Kind of makes you look like a man child, but if it's all or nothing, I'll take nothing. I'm not trying to get hair in my mouth when I'm doing him a favor.
Not completely shaved but trimmed up pretty good. Seriously, we're begging you. Is it "girly" if a guy cleans up his eyebrows? My man thinks it's too girly. I pluck them every other month or so, mostly because it's fun and he pretends to hate it even though I know he secretly loves his newly groomed brows. A guy going out of his way to get his eyebrows waxed is a little much for me, however. I secretly wish my boyfriend would let me clean his up a little.
I waxed my guy's brows and at first he was embarrassed, but now he likes the natural result. Please keep it natural though. Your brows should never look more perfect than ours.
Oh, and don't be afraid to ask us for help. How much chest hair is too much chest hair? I like somewhere in between. If a guy wants to go bare, I'm cool with that too. I make my man shave it. A shaved chest makes a guy look more manly, especially if he has a hot body. Just like eyebrows and beards, chest hair should also be groomed.
If he has patchy chest hair, he should go ahead and shave it. If he's on the hairy side, he should definitely trim it up but not too short. I hate chest stubble. Too much would be weird I think. Def don't shave it though. It grows back weird and rough. Super-duper hairy, however, isn't hot. Before you shave it all off though, check in with your girl first some like the shaved look, while others don't. Is it a deal breaker? Again, I'm not a huge fan of guys waxing or anything like that, but back hair just isn't very sexy.
I would stick with him either way though. I will use the clippers on you, but please get rid of it. But I do appreciate that my guy doesn't have back hair. No, but please let us help you get rid of it ASAP. Would it be weird if a guy shaved his armpits? Shaving the armpits for a guy though… not so much. Trimming is totally OK, and for some guys, it's a must. If I can see your armpit hair without you raising your arms, then that's a problem.
I don't ever want my armpit hair to be longer than my man's, and if I skip a day of shaving I would start to feel pretty self-conscious about it. Trims are totally cool and encouraged by us though.
