    How To Manscape - A Manscaping Guide for Men

    What is Manscaping?

    The quick answer is that manscaping is the process of trimming or grooming body hair on the male body. The art of manscaping goes much deeper though, as there are many different ways to go about body hair removal and different areas on the body to give some much needed cosmetic assistance.

    Guide to Manscaping

    So, you’ve decided to tidy up the hair on your body. This could mean re-shaping the hair or removing it entirely. The most common areas of body hair removal or shaping are on the chest, the back, the shoulders, and the groin. You can even remove your ear hair or nose hair too if you like. No matter what hair you’re removing, you’ll want to go about it the right way and with the right tools, of course.

     

    You may know how to wrangle your facial hair, but body hair can be another beast entirely. The last thing you want is to go about it the wrong way and find yourself with small cuts all over your body. You won’t be able to use the same method for your body as you would for your face, you’ll need different tools to begin with.

     

    There are a few reasons you might want to remove your body hair. Maybe you’re an athlete and you want a sleeker body (some athletes even shave their legs and completely remove their armpit hair), maybe you don’t like the way it feels, or you simply don’t like the way it looks. Everyone is different with some guys, happy to embrace their hairiness, there are also ways to encourage hair growth. Frequent brushing will energise the hair follicles and appropriate oils and moisturisers can help get the hairs growing. Frequent brushing will also help prevent ingrown hairs

    Step 1: Have a shower before shaving your hair

    First things first, if you’re going to shave your body hair, make sure the hair is clean and tidy. The best way to do this is to have a warm shower before you even reach for your electric shaver or body trimmer. This will help soften the hairs and make shaving easier. Then give the hair a brush or comb down if it needs it so there aren’t any tangles. Make the skin as taut as possible, removing any wrinkles that could make shaving hard (or painful). You might be tempted to get a close shave, but a little bit of stubble is ok, you can always trim or shave any spots that need it when you’re ready for a completely smooth look.

    Step 2: Starting to manscape your back

    The back and shoulders are a popular area of hair removal. The back can be especially hard to shave as you can’t see it and can’t safely reach it to shave the hair. A lot of tools, like the Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer, will help you in this area by being safe for skin and having long handles to help you get those hard-to-reach areas. Take it slow and be careful the first time you shave your back and shoulders and remember to look out for all your contours, curves, and muscles.

    Step 3: Removing or styling chest hair

    Shaving your chest is easier than your back. A popular reason for shaving your chest is to give your muscles a more sculpted look, but those muscles are what makes your chest and abdomen uneven and harder to shave. Use a recommended, specialist tool from the Philips Body Groomer range and use light strokes to achieve your desired look.

    Step 4: Manscaping your pubic hair

    The most fraught manscaping operation, sculpting or removing your pubic hair. Short, light, careful strokes are key to shave only the hair you want to shave. Keep the skin as taut as possible and take as long as you need. Shaving your balls is especially tricky. Do your best to keep the skin taut. You should never rush pubic hair removal. (You don’t want get stubborn ingrown hairs later down the road, take your time the first time and you’ll have a finely manscaped groin.)

    Shaving is a hot bathroom or during the heat of the day can make razor burn worse. Try shaving in the evening to give irritable skin a chance to recover overnight.

    Step 5: Remember aftercare after hair removal

    Once you’ve finished shaving your body, give the area a quick rinse in cold water. This will remove any loose hairs and point out any spots you might have missed. Then give the area a pat down and apply a soothing moisturiser to the freshly shaved area. (Do this every time you shave, even when you shave your face.) When shaving the pubic area, stick to an unscented moisturiser for sensitive skin, stick to an unscented moisturiser for sensitive skin.

    Self-care is important so be careful and use the right tools and products for the perfect manscaped body.

     

    If you decide that you want to remove your body hair, remember to use the right tools and take it slowly. There’s no need to rush the process of manscaping. If shaving isn’t for you, remember to consider waxing or laser hair removal.
