What Do You Think of Men Who Wax?

What Do You Think of Men Who Wax?

We're excited to present this article from Allure!

I can't say I was surprised to see Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino get his eyebrows waxed last week on Jersey Shore. There he was at the barber shop, getting a wax that wasn't just about removing the strays between his brows; he was getting a full-on, arch-defining brow wax.

Personally, I couldn't deal with dating a man who waxed his eyebrows—too high-maintenance. And, at least according to the results of a new Allure poll, I'm not alone. Though we don't have specific stats on eyebrow waxing, 38 percent of women in the poll said they either don't care or don't like it when a man grooms his pubic hair. And on the subject of back hair? An overwhelming 66 percent of women said to leave it be.

What do you think? Are you fine with a guy's fur? Or do you demand some male grooming?

i actually love it when men groom. of course they don't need to, but i can appreciate it in a man. it means that he's maintaining an appearance and i don't think its all that high maintenance seeing as i do the same.

I think a common misconception is that men don't have the the same insecurities that women do regarding their bodies which is so not the case.  I own an organic skin care and waxing studio and some of my most loyal clients have been men. Now these guys are not the type of men most people would associate with these kind of services (metro sexual,gay etc). Far from it!  These guys look like the typical run of the mill dude, they look like your husband or boyfriend who watches football and UFC fights, or your father who goes hunting on the weekends. Women need to think about how they feel when they are freshly groomed (waxed,hair and makeup etc). We typically feel empowered and  Confident by taking care of ourselves. So why shouldn't the men in our lives feel that same confidence?!

I will pluck my guy's eyebrows (usually just his unibrow). Other than that, he's the one that likes to be more groomed than not. He likes trimming his body hair. I don't ask him to do it. But a guy who waxes? that's a lot of spa appointments.. I don't need a hair free guy at all.. But if the guy expects me to be hair free with waxing, I'm going to force him to wax something of his, just so he knows what I'm going through :D

I have to agree I prefer men who are hair-less but there are alternative methods to achieve the same results. (and they keep the men's sense of pride in tact)

I don't expect my partners to do anything specific, but I think hair is pretty gross.
