Sexy Chest Hair FAQ
Flip through any men’s mag (the health and fitness kind!) and most of the blokes you see are going to have nice, smooth chests with very little hair. If any. Some of those guys may have been born without the genes to produce lots of fuzz – but most of them weren’t.
Now, I’m not going to sit here and tell you I drool over the Paul Bunyan look. But I like the Girlie-Man look even less – and that’s what you look like when you go shaving yourself back to pre-pubescence. If you’re totally clueless as to what I’m going on about, just watch an episode of Baywatch.
If you can keep your eyes off the chicks long enough to look at the guys, that is. Apart from David Hasselhoff, these guys have chests that resemble a baby’s bottom. Looks pretty good on TV, I admit. But I cringe when I see this in person at the gym or on the beach.
Who wants a high-maintenance male? If you check out Dave from his Knight Rider days, he had quite a bit of chest hair. And women seemed to dig it, cos he was getting his man nipples out at every op in those 80’s pics. Not that super fuzz is hawt stuff either. So what do you do? You go for fuzz-management, as opposed to fuzz-removal.
Trim That Bad Boy
If you really want to highlight your chest, the best way is to bring the fuzz in line. All you need to do is trim your body hair. Keep in mind, if you trim it too much, it will not look natural. The idea is to maintain it without making it look like you put too much effort into it.
If you have a lot of chest hair, you might end up trimming quite a bit – if it’s already sparse, adjust accordingly! It’s like getting a regular haircut – just give those wayward locks a shape to conform to and that will be fine.
More Grooming Tips!
No Shaving the Chest, Please
Unless you intend to do this every single day, and do it well, you’re bound to have stubble here. I am so not throwing you down and having my way with you if I have to worry about your sandpapery chest!
No waxing the chest, please.
This is top of the line high maintenance. There is only room for one vain person per relationship and the man should not be that person! Now, if you have a super fuzzy chest and really want to keep it going on, more power to you. There are definitely women who prefer that look, so it’s not like you’re never going to get a date that way. Just remember one thing – if you *do* have lots of chest hair, please keep it in your shirt. That style where it pokes out of the collar? Wouldn’t even look good on Brad Pitt.
