Male Grooming - Why are they so awkward?!


Male grooming...is there anything more awkward? Don't get me wrong, I am all for men having tidy eyebrows and generally taking pride in their appearance, I love that! But I'm a firm believer in there being a line that men just should not cross.... For instance, I just find men with overly plucked and well-shaped eyebrows a bit of a turn off. If you have better scouse-brow than me I am not interested! It just looks odd, no?

(is that lipgloss?!)

Another awkward point involving eyebrows - why oh why do some men take a razor to their unibrow?! WHY?! I was talking to my boyfriend the other day and couldn't look away from the stubble between his eyebrows, odd. As a person who religiously gets their brows threaded because I am pants at shaping them myself, all that goes through my head is 'How are you supposed to shape them with that?!'. I can just see it going horribly wrong... Men of the world - if you're unsure, get your girlfriend/ female friend to pluck them for you instead, it will last longer and look a lot better. Plus, we quite like laughing at how wimpy you are about it ;)

Last but not least, body hair. I have absolutely no problem with body hair, I quite like a bit of chest fluff if I'm honest, but I understand many aren't keen. But PLEASE don't shave your chest! Again, my boyfriend is guilty of this and I just thought it looked really odd when he suddenly had a stubbly chest. Trust me, it's not the best look (and doesn't feel particular nice!) and so requires daily maintenance. Make life easier on yourself and get a wax or hair removal cream. I still find it weirder when men shave their arms and legs though....

Are there any other strange things you have caught the men in your life doing in the way of male grooming (nothing too rude please!). Oh, they are funny creatures! ;)
