I dated a guy once who was great looking and sweet. The one thing I just could not get over was his hairy back. I was early 20’s at the time so I didn’t have the “outspoken” mouth I have now. Every time he would ask me for a back rub I would cringe. Our relationship ended and thankfully the guys after him had a smooth back whether natural, waxed, or shaven…which is what I would like to bring your attention to.
In this picture my friend, is in his 30’s, had no idea that he is supposed to shave his back! No wonder he is single and can’t get any action;). He asked me to help him with hist style. However, the best outfit in the world can’t make this attractive.
In the book Mantalk by Dr. Elliot Jacobs he says:
“Almost all women dislike hair on the back, but are too embarrassed to tell their mate. According to a Harris Interactive survey of 1,000, more than 90 percent of women between the ages of eighteen and forty-four find back hair to be unattractive. Yet, despite their aversion to back hair, only four in ten women would ever feel comfortable asking their significant other to handle their hairy hang-up.”
I asked a friend that I knew used to be “furry” and he swore by the Clio. He says that the extended arm allows him to reach everywhere.
Razorba Back Hair Shaver is also highly recommended.
In addition to your back, you can also trim your chest hair and “you know where” …down there. 😉 Technically, this can be done with a pair of scissors. For more INSIDE style tips for men “HAIR TO TOE” you can buy my book Ultimate Guide to Style, From Drab to Fab. I have a full chapter dedicated just to you!
Men, if you have a hairy back do something about it…pretty please with sugar on top.
PS.For Christmas, I am buying him the Clio and will video the “after” outcome…so stay tuned!
