According to new research by Braun, 70% of us guys want less body hair. That’s a lot more than I thought!
If you’re looking to manscape, check out the Body Map entry for body hair. I run down all the options; waxing (see above… yikes), creams, shaving, lasers and trimming.
My recommendation for newbies? Give the cruZer 6 Body 2-in-1 a shot. It’s a powerful trimmer (so it works quickly) with three lengths of trimming to cover every body part you’d care to trim.
It also features a Gilette razor blade for any areas you want completely smooth (be careful!).
Check out their findings below. Which one are you?

From left to right…
The Woolly Jumper (11%)
Most impressively, but not for the faint at heart, these hirsute gentlemen channel their inner-cavemen externally in a style which is most popular amongst those 31 years and over. To keep this look under control, trim hair to a suitable length on a regular basis.
The Rug (14%)
This look epitomises ‘daddy cool’ with celebrity supporters including Tom Selleck and The Hoff. Fans of this style tend to be 25 years and over, with a chest full of hair to be proud of, keeping the look defined with a quick trim over the summer.
The Snail (11%)
This notable male landscape is common amongst younger men who want to keep any hair above the belly button at bay, with a small trail of hair across the stomach.
The Top Heavy (15%)
These manscaping heroes rock a well-trimmed mat of hair on the top half of their chest but keep the stomach area smooth. As seen on Brit legends Keith Lemon and Robbie Williams, this look is popular across the board, sported by men of all ages.
The Tree (20%)
The typical version of The Tree involves shaping a moderate amount of hair on the upper chest with a small trail leading down to the stomach. Most popular amongst the ‘younger generation’ (21%), this evergreen approach to manscaping allows men to proudly display a standard growth of hair all year round.
