Manscaping: What Are Your Grooming Dealbreakers?

I don’t really have a type -- men are just plain sexy, especially when they’re approaching me with a smile. A funny, confident guy trying to get on my good side drives me wild. But if I look down at his hands and they’re all Busted McDirty, that’s my manscaping dealbreaker. Nails you are too…

Beauty Road Test: Smooth Away

While I always love to read the advice Wendy gives out in her "Dear Wendy" column, I was sort of surprised by the number of responses her column yesterday received. Who knew people could get so worked up over body hair? But I guess I shouldn't be so shocked -- just look at the…

Dov Charney Claims Bushy Brows Are Back

The ever-controversial American Apparel CEO, Dov Charney, sent out his latest newsletter to employees with a "helpful" tip regarding current eyebrow aesthetics. Over-tweezing is so yesterday or something, and now it's all about thick, healthy brows, à la teenaged Brooke Shields, which really did happen so yesterday. We're not sure why he would share…

Shaving Your Armpits Was A Huge New Trend In 1915

According to Mental Floss, even the word "underarm" was considered scandalous before that time. But then designers cooked up a dress without…

Is The End Of The Hairy Man Nigh?

During the ascent of the now pervasive male hipster style, we've fretted over mustaches gone wild, and hemmed and hawed over Galifianakis-ish hirsuteness. But men who remove all that hair are coming out of the closet, with a little help from grooming marketers, says The New York Times. Will the increasing popularity of…

Gillette thinks some men need assistance with not drawing blood while they shave their groin area, so its crack animation team put together this instructional "How to Shave your Balls" YouTube cartoon.

Why Men Need You To Groom Them

Women, take note: when the appearance of men's toenails suggest that we are either vying for a Guinness World Record -- or preparing for an underground cage fighting match -- feel free to mention that they've gotten a tad long. We don’t mind.

Quickies!: Hayden Christensen And Rachel Bilson Are Headed To The Chapel

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are engaged. Our dreams of a Summer and Seth reunion are crushed. [PopCrunch] Rihanna has sold another 25,000 copies of Good Girl Gone Bad in the last week. What a way to show sympathy, spending money on mediocre music! Yeah, I said it. [E! Online] Puke,…

Waxing Lyrical: A Male’s View Of Hair Down There

If you ask a man what he looks for when he meets a vagina, besides a great sense of humor of course, he will probably suggest many of the same delusional qualities he wants in his total fantasy female package.

I’ve always found it funny that as the Brazilian -- and I'm talking waxing here, people -- has became more popular among women, it's beards, mustaches, and facial scruffiness that has become more in vogue for men. I can't help but wonder why the women of my generation are hacking off their bushe…
