1950s man

Women most desire the manners and appearance of men from the 1950s, according to a new survey by the men’s skincare brand, Scaramouche & Fandango. (Yes, that’s their real name.) The survey found that more than half of women thought men cleaned up better in the 1950s and more than two-thirds of these poor, beleaguered women said they preferred old-fashioned chivalry.  Four-fifths of the women surveyed said they wish their man had a better grooming routine … and half of the men admitted they didn’t groom at all.

So, to translate, a company that sells men’s grooming products wants men to know that women are more attracted to men who take more care with their grooming than the full Zach Galifianakis look. No big news there. Get rid of your nasty beards, hipsters!

Currently en vogue for women, and the subject of much debate, is the hairless, or as-little-hair-down-there-as-possible, look. Whether you choose to go hairless or not, the bald below trend existed way before “Sex and the City.”

The ancient Egyptians considered pubic hair uncivilized and removed it with razors made of flint or bronze or by a practice still used today called sugaring. So, we should probably rename “the Brazilian” “the Egyptian.”

Click through to see some of the most significant moments in the history of pubic hair. Or lack thereof. [History Undressed]

Many moons ago, when I went to summer camp, getting ready for the excursion meant a trip to Marshall’s for a new swimsuit. If the New York Times Style section is to be believed (which I am not saying it is: honestly, sometimes this shit is unbelievable) some tweens and teens prep for camp more glamorously: Girls are supposedly waxing their legs, armpits and bikini lines, getting keratin treatments, and even pre-summer camp facials.  Keep reading »

The only images that I can foresee after not washing my hair for five weeks are masses of oil dripping down my shoulders, lice, and/or the emergence of unwashed dreadlocks. This woman, however, claims that after washing her hair for the first time after five weeks, she noticed her locks were “vibrant and had a texture that seemed to sashay.”

Look, I went to a women’s college (Mount Holyoke!) for a year, and I saw a lot of hairy things. I don’t judge. But for myself, I choose to shave as often as I am in the shower, which is just about every day. I understand that not everyone is like this, however, and in the case of Terry Richardson consort and maybe-model Charlotte Free (pictured) it looks like it’s been a couple of weeks. That got us wondering…
