Women on the Dos and Donts of Male Grooming

When it comes to grooming, as men, we tend to prefer to keep things simple – and by that we mean doing as little as humanly possible. Who has time to primp and preen, after all? Unfortunately for most of us, we are living in the age of the metrosexual. With so many pretty boys walking around with perfectly coifed hair, gleaming white teeth, and not a patch of body hair in sight, many of us are starting to question our trademark ‘Neanderthal-esque’ appearance. The question is – what do the women think of this new trend? Let’s investigate…

Man buns are in, short hair is out

So there are indeed many conflicting opinions when it comes to man buns, with some practically worshipping the ‘do and others deeming the look to be rather laughable. The ladies, however, are big into it, so, in all honesty, do you really need any more reason to grow your hair? Pair the man bun with a sexy lumberjack beard and some checked shirts (or a suit if you’re into that sort of thing) and you’ll be good to go.

B.O is the number one turn off

According to women from all over the globe, the one thing that instantly puts them off of a guy is bad body odour. If you are struggling to control your sweat glands but really want to make a good impression on that attractive broad across the room, be sure to invest in an intoxicating body spray, cologne or deodorant. Plus, if you smell good, you feel good; so be sure to capitalise on that boost in confidence.

Ear and nose hair is a no-no

There is nothing worse than copious amounts of hair sprouting from your facial orifices. Do you really want to look like your granddad? We think not. Buy yourself a professional hair-trimmer and get rid of that unwanted fuzz. The ladies will thank you for it.

Well-groomed hands are a must

Think about it – would you want hard, calloused hands all over you? Doubtful. According to most women, well-groomed hands are incredibly attractive so, while we aren’t suggesting that you go for a full blown mani-pedi on a weekly basis, it is definitely a good idea to consider applying some hand cream and trimming your nails from time to time.

So, there you have it, guys! Everything that you need to know about male grooming from a female’s perspective. Now all that’s left to do is to get out there and impress the babes with your incredible hygiene and impeccable taste.
