Hair Removal for Men

Hair is normally removed for social and sexual reasons related to the social role of hair in human society. Many cultures have an aesthetic "ideal" amount of hair for males and females. People whose hair violates such standards may experience real or perceived problems with social acceptance.

Many men in Western cultures shave their facial hair, so only a minority of men have a beard, even though fast-growing facial hair must be shaved daily to achieve a clean-shaven or hairless look. Some men shave because they cannot grow a full beard, because beard color is different from scalp hair color or because it grows in many directions, thus making a groomed look difficult. Some men shave because their beards are very coarse, causing itchiness and irritation. Some men grow a beard from time to time to change their appearance.

Some men shave their heads, either as a fashion statement, to cover up male pattern baldness or to attain enhanced cooling of the skull.

The most common areas that men request for hair removal are the face, head, chest (chest hair removal), back (back hair removal) and legs(leg hair removal). There are many hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing and creams, but one of the most popular forms of permanent hair removal for men is laser hair removal treatments. This type of treatment is classified as permanent hair reduction when compared to other methods such as shaving and waxing which is only temporary. Read more at What is Laser Hair removal?

The attitudes towards chest hair vary between different cultures and times. In some cultures, it is a symbol for virility and masculinity; other societies display a hairless body as a sign of youthfulness. Some people find men with a lot of chest hair very sexually arousing. In ancient Greece and ancient Rome male statues did not show any chest hair. Even on paintings and sculptures from Middle Ages to modern times men were often portrayed without any hair on their anterior torso.

While in the early and middle twentieth century the attitude towards hair on the chest was largely indifferent, there was a late twentieth century trend within Western societies to remove chest hair. Some young men in their teens and twenties, especially in the United States and those involved in beach culture, removed their chest hair. The removal of body hair (depilation and epilation) by men was labelled by the personal hygiene industry as manscaping. This public trend, distributed by the media, began in the United States and spread to other Western societies. Many companies catered to men looking for ways to remove their chest hair, such as Nair for Men and Nads for Men. The twenty-first century has seen a small backlash against this feminization of men and against the so-called metrosexuals. While most men depicted in fashion advertising still have no chest hair, a few exceptions can now be seen. In the West, chest hair is largely regarded as sexy and a sign of virility and masculinity. Removing or maintaining chest hair ultimately depends on one's individual preference, which can be influenced by what is considered most attractive.
