male grooming

question for guys out there.

how many of you take care of your appearance? i mean so in a way such as getting your eyebrows shaped every now and then, always clean shaven, wax your chest/back, shave/trim your armpits, your pubes n whatnot...

i ask cause i was out with a girl today and she says i was the first guy shes ever seen who shaves/trims armpits...wich kinda blew me away seeing as how i know dozens of guys who do this....so it got me thinking...

so, how many of you guys do grooming on yourselves?

I spend more than $40 to get my haircut from a talented stylist, I get my eye brows shaped, shave my chest, trim or shave arm pits and pubes, wear cologne daily, have had no polish manicures done a number of times with my female friends. I'm wouldn't consider myself metro, but I suppose I meet some peoples definitions of the term.

I enjoy and prefer being well groomed and I have never met a girl who would did not appreciate it.

okay good, cause im basically in the same boat, i dont consider myself metro at all, but i do take damn good care of my body...ive never had a girl complain about anything i do...i just found it quite shocking that this girl has never seen a guy who shaves/trims his armpit hair...anyone who wears fitted shirts knows what happens if you sweat with bushy ass pits....biggest fucking sweat stains ever...

IMO any grooming besides keeping yourself clean is unnecessary and contrived, this goes for men and women

I shower every day, use shampoo once a week and shave twice a month. I also brush twice a day. I get my chest/back and arms shaved whenever I am getting tattooed. I'm at the very lower limit of grooming I'd say, but my girlfriend likes me being a bit rough around the edges. I can't believe how many people in this city are worse than that though. So many homeless looking/smelling hipster motherfuckers out there. Being stinky isn't hip.

Hell yeah! I love it. One thing I love about mainland girls

But that's just personal preference, it doesn't really matter to the topic itself. Regardless of my preference in terms of aesthetics, I think it's bs that women "have" to groom a certain way. They should be able to do what they want.

I have dry combination skin on my face so I do use moisturizer. And sometimes body butter where my skins dry and itchy.

I have bi-weekly haircuts. I shave my face once a week, don't really down there or arm pits. I cut my fingernails weekly but never my toes. Been to a mani/pedi before and wouldn't mind going monthly. I never use to moisturize but im starting to.

Since I work in a warehouse, appearance doesn't mean a lot to me at work, sweats and hoodies on the daily. But when I'm heading out on the weekend with friends & such, especially if I will be out in public or will be around new people I haven't met, I try to make myself stand out.

Eyebrows stay tamed/cleaned every 2 weeks.
Clean shave or once in a while I'll have a short clean "Tony Starks" goatee my friends always claim I look like.
Nails cut and clean. I get manicures done every 3-4 weeks from a female friend for free. I especially love when the ladies notice them. (Great convo starter)
Haircut every 3-4 weeks. Just recently have shy'ed away from the typical Vancouver look of the faded sides/fauxhawk. There's nothing wrong with the look, it's just so common that I'd like to stand out from the norm.
I also trim the front yard and both high trees every 2 weeks.
Don't have any hair on the chest or back so thats one less thing to worry about.
Moisturize daily after showers.
Also have a variety of cologne and hair products to use on different occasions.

Look good, feel good.

Trim and shave my beard.
Get hair cut when I have time.
Cut my nails almost daily. I play the guitar and my hands are often in chalk.

You have a red mohawk, no?

I vaguely remember a picture of you in the WO&T thread.

That would qualify as unnecessary aesthetic grooming.

To each there own, your grooming preferences as valid as mine. Just curious.

-Don't wax eyebrows, lucked out in that department I guess.
-Never shave, always keep a little stubble (look like a kid when I shave). Or if I'm gonna shave, do it Friday so by Sunday/Monday I got good amount of stubble again.
-Trim the chest hair whenever i see it getting out of hand, used to wax but didn't like the look. I like looking like a lumberjack. Same w/ everything else. Plus shaving is a PITA and when the hair grows back it itches like a mofo.
-Wash hair/shower 2x a day, brush/floss/mouthwash 2x a day
-Never moisturize hands are rough and hard as hell but gf likes it, and again, lumberjack.

The only thing I get lazy on (and if anyone knows me, they'll confirm this) is haircuts. My hair looks like shit when it gets long, but its just a bad habit of mine not to get it cut around final exams/midterms time. It grows out and looks nasty

Yes to each their own. Obviously I include cutting hair, brushing teeth, nosehair trimming, and clipping nails as necessary grooming. But I'm sure you knew that, and are just being pedantic.

not sure of srs lol

but if srs, props to you for being able to see women in their most "natural".

people in society think it's really only females that are brainwashed by how women are "really" supposed to look...but really, us males are just as programmed as they are.

imagine how it was back then when the early first humans came, lol.

Oh I'm srs

It's a really new thing for men to be into women that groom themselves to look underaged. You can look at a collage of playboy centerfolds, and narrow it down to about 1998 or so...

But for the hundreds of thousands of years before 1998, men liked their women natural, and many still do. Actually throughout most of the world, they still do for the most part. It's mostly just US, Canada, and some parts of Europe who dislike natural women, for whatever reason.

Daily hygiene (showering, brushing, flossing, deodorant) is a no-brainer.

Cologne usually on weekends and weeknights.

I shave every 2-3 days, because for the life of me, I cannot pull off facial hair. Even the slightest shadow makes me look like a pedophile.

Get a haircut every 1-3 months depending on how I feel like styling my hair, but never paid more than $20 for a cut.

Nothing wrong with getting your eyebrows cleaned up. I've never gotten them shaped or waxed, but my girlfriend plucks mine every few months.

Everywhere else, I trim accordingly.

I don't think that's going overboard.

Now that I have relatively short hair, shampoo 4-5 times per week. When it was longer I had to shampoo every day. I simply cannot imagine only using shampoo once a week, my hair would be greasy as shit.
