In college, a roommate of mine, Mack, rushed out of the bathroom with feverish eyes.

Sweating, he looked at me.

“Will,” he said, “take a look at this.”

He’d injured his ‘egg-basket’ while doing a bit of personal grooming.

It looked bad, gentlemen—I won’t lie. There was almost as much blood as there was panic.

As the whole house gathered around poor Mack’s battered scrotum, many uneducated medical opinions flew around.

Personal grooming may seem straightforward and easy, but if you find yourself using the wrong tool for the wrong job, you may end up like Mack.

Mack is ok now, and as far as I know, his scrotum is intact. But just because a story ends well doesn’t mean you want to take the same journey.

Read on through our complete and thorough guide to manscaping and arm yourself with the knowledge it takes to handle your precious goods.

You’ll be bringing sharp objects near them, so read the manual first.

What Is Manscaping?

In its simplest form, manscaping is the practice of grooming men’s body hair.

The word has become synonymous with pubic grooming, though this isn’t necessarily the whole story.

Any sort of grooming, whether it’s on the back, arms, chest, or legs, counts as manscaping.

In practice, manscaping will be different for every man. Some of you may dedicate time to trimming your eyebrows and removing the hair from your ears, while others may not have the need or desire to pay any attention to that area.

If you’ve ever plucked a nose hair, trimmed the hair down on your chest, or used a razor to clean up the back of your neck, you’ve successfully manscaped.

The Studies

Now, of course, manscaping also entails shaving and trimming the pubic region. This form of manscaping is common: a 2017 study from the JAMA Dermatology Journal reported that 66% of men between the ages of 18 and 65 have practiced pubic grooming at least once in their life.

So if you were wondering if anyone else cleans up down there, you’re not alone. Most men do it or have done it in the past.

There’s no shame in trimming around the edges. In fact, studies have shown that many men report feeling more confident after grooming.

If that study did nothing for you, this next one might. A recent Swiss experiment found that women ranked “general cosmetic apperance” as the number one most important physical penis trait. And in second place? The state of male public hair.

Yep, ahead of length and girth.

And if you need even more persuading, check out this other statistic from the JAMA Dermatology study: only 1% of pubic groomers wind up in the hospital from an injury sustained while hacking away downstairs.

Gentlemen, read on to stay on the good side of that stat.

If you’re already sold and want a solution right now, this kit has everything you need to get started with Manscaping:

The Best Way to Manscape: 11 Crucial Manscaping Tips

1. Don’t assume that one tool will do all jobs.

You want to know what happened to my buddy, Mack? He used an electric trimmer on his scrotum.

The skin can (and did) get caught up between the metal teeth and tear. Depending on what you’re grooming and how, use the appropriate tool for the job.

An electric trimmer is great for chest hair and trimming down your bush, but there are certain places it shouldn’t go.

We break down all of our favorite tried-and-tested manscaping tools at the end of the article.

2. Keep it consistent. There’s no ‘one-style-fits-all.’

The key to manscaping well is making sure that your grooming doesn’t look unnatural. If you’re a hairy guy all over but you have a perfectly bald groin, it’ll look strange to say the least.

Keep your grooming in proportion to the rest of your body. Also, things like back-hair may not necessarily be bad. If your partner enjoys it, keep it.

However, if your partner(s) say your back-hair makes them want to book a one-way ticket out of your bed and to another hemisphere, consider getting rid of it.

3. Consider why you’re manscaping.

Is it for the glory? Are you getting cleaned up before an exciting date, or are you just keeping things maintained?

If you’ve never seriously manscaped before, don’t go all-in on your first attempt, especially not before any sort of intimate encounter. There’s no need to get a full Brazilian wax for a trip to the corner store.

4. A consistent routine makes it easier.

Some people do their manscaping right around when they cut their hair. If you shave your face every few days, consider manscaping during that same morning shower for consistency.

This is really dependent on the areas you’re looking to trim up and how much hair you naturally have. If you have to shave your face every day, it may not make sense to scour your body for back and shoulder hairs on a daily basis.

Whatever makes the most sense in your weekly (or monthly) routine makes the most sense for manscaping. Because gentlemen, it’s not about maintaining absolute perfection—it’s about keeping things trim and neat.

5. Always trim before wet-shaving.

Don’t try to go in with a razor right away. If you’re looking to remove hair that’s been growing for a while, use an electric trimmer to remove the lengthy hair first.

No products found.

After you’ve buzzed it down, you’ll have a much easier and more comfortable wet-shave experience.

Long hairs can get caught in your razor and pull at your skin—especially in the most sensitive areas. This can cause irritation, shaving bumps, and even acne, none of which are good news.

Trimming away excess hair also helps you see areas you’ve missed and can help in maintaining even lines.

6. Always open your pores before shaving—a hot shower helps.

Shaving can be pretty traumatic for your skin if you don’t prepare it, especially below the belt. Taking a hot shower helps open up your pores and relaxes the hair follicles.

Your hair will be less resistant to your razor and you’ll have a smoother experience with a whole lot less irritation afterward.

In fact, shaving in the shower is one of the easiest ways to consistently manscape. Keep a razor in your shower and just do a little upkeep here and there.

7. If you wet-shave, moisturize afterward.

It’s important to moisturize after shaving. Like I said earlier, shaving is rough on your skin. To avoid shaving bumps and irritation, replenish and nourish your skin by moisturizing.

For the love of Jason Momoa’s beard, please don’t use any alcohol based aftershave. If you do so once, you won’t do so twice.

There are some excellent moisturizers out there, including the Manscaped Crop Reviver, which is specially formulated with aloe and witch hazel to take care of your boys.

No need to have teenage flashbacks and play ‘will it burn and irreparably damage my reproductive health’ with your skincare products anymore.

8. Slow and steady wins the race.

If it’s been a while and you have a lot of hair to remove, save it for when you have time. It may take extra care and attention to get things into order but maintain a natural appearance.

If you absolutely need to shave your balls but you only have three minutes, you may end up canceling your plans due to an unforeseen hospital visit.

9. Use sharp razors.

If you’ve ever shaved your face, this is pretty intuitive. Using sharp razors will reduce irritation and make the whole process much easier.

Using a safety razor is always a good bet as the blades are inexpensive and easy to change out once they lose their edge. The Plow from Manscaped is an excellent tool to keep in your shower for just this reason.

You don’t want to use the same razor for your face that you just used down below. The reasons, I think, are clear. Getting a dedicated safety razor will help you keep a routine going so you never find yourself absolutely needing to shave your balls in three minutes or less.

10. Don’t ever shave your buttcrack.

Let’s step into a horror movie for a moment: you’ve been captured and incapacitated by an evil person. On the inside of your right buttcheek, they’ve glued a piece of large-grit sandpaper. On the inside of the left, they’ve glued a strip of shark skin.

The evil person then makes you walk around and go about your daily business as if you don’t have sandpaper and shark skin glued to the inside of your buttcheeks.

Don’t be that evil person to yourself. Don’t ever shave your buttcrack.

Even with moisturizing and a hot shower and plenty of shave gel, nothing will save you from when the hair begins to grow back.

It’s horrible.

The best option for removing hair from your crack is waxing. There are some home waxing kits, though depending on how brave you are, it may just be worthwhile to go to a professional.

But if you learn nothing else from this article, remember this: don’t ever shave your buttcrack.

11. Talk to your partner (if you’ve got one).

The best way to know how you should manscape is to ask your partner. Obviously, don’t ask about perineum preferences on the second date.

Hopefully, you’ve got the type of relationship where you can be open about what each other prefers in the grooming department.

It’ll make you more confident in testing different styles. The great thing about all manscaping is that—just like when you were 11 and your Aunt Patricia gave you that God-awful buzz-mullet haircut (yep, it was so bad she literally invented a new style)—the hair will always grow back.

As will your reputation.

How To Manscape Every Part Of Your Body

The Eyebrows

Just because you see eyebrows on this list doesn’t mean you need to manscape your fuzzy fellas. Be careful here; your eyebrows are pretty important.

However, if you struggle with bushy eyebrows or have a bit of a unibrow going, there are a few ways you can clean it up.

To trim away uneven hairs, use a fine toothed comb to brush your eyebrows upward. This will expose any inconsistencies in length and you can take a pair of blunt edge scissors and cut the hairs down to length.

I’ll say this here, and I’ll say it again: don’t cut beyond the natural height of your eyebrows. If you obsess over creating a perfect line, you might end up looking like Xerxes from 300.

Most women aren’t attracted to men with better eyebrows than them. Keep them groomed, but keep it simple.

To remove unibrow hairs, don’t touch your electric trimmer or a razor. You want to stick to tweezers for this job. Again, the key to good unibrow grooming is to only pluck what’s in the unibrow, and not to go into the natural line of the brow.

Last update on 2021-01-20 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

Plucking too much will broaden your nose bridge and make your nose appear larger on your face than it really is. I can’t imagine many cases where this will be a good thing.

Gentlemen, the main thing to remember with eyebrows is that they shouldn’t be distracting.

If your brows are overgrown and out of control, they’re distracting. If your brows are perfect and over-neat, they’re distracting. Keep it simple and don’t ever go beyond your natural brow line.

The Ears

The most important thing to know about ear hair is that no one should see your ear hair.

The ears are another job for tweezers. Most guys don’t have issues here until they’re older, but if you have a few hairs peeking out, you want to take care of them. Any hairs along the outside of the ear can be plucked and removed easily enough with tweezers.

Don’t go trimming your ears with a nose-hair trimmer, though. Small hairs on the inside of your ears play a role in balance and you understanding where your body is in space.

If you’ve ever been laying down with your eyes closed and felt someone standing near you, but you didn’t hear or see them, your ear hairs play a critical role in detecting changes in the air and environment around you.

Since the ears don’t really grow too much hair, it’s best to play it safe and just pluck out any hairs you can see in the mirror. Don’t go into the ear unless it’s for one or two hairs.

Any further and you risk (quite literally) putting your body into an imbalance.

The Nose

One way to remove nose hair is to drink a fifth of whiskey, bite down on a leather strap, and start tweezing.

The nose is about as sensitive as it gets, and it’s also an area of the body that most guys will need to groom regularly.

The key to a nicely trimmed nose is similar to the ear: no one should see your nose hairs. You don’t want any hairs creeping down below your nostrils.

Depending on your nose shape, this can be more difficult, especially if your nostrils tend to lift toward the front of your nose.

Don’t go scorched earth and take out all of your nose hairs. Nose hairs play an important role in keeping out allergens and filtering dust.

If you go in with a nose hair trimmer and take out all of your hairs, you’ll notice a difference the next time you go outside. Watery eyes, sneezing, and general irritation don’t make for a good look.

The least painful and easiest method is to use special blunted end scissors to trim close to the nostril, but be sure not to go too far in. Blunted end scissors reduce the risk of clipping your skin and drawing blood, and they’re a great tool for other grooming needs as well (like your eyebrows).

Don’t go in with pointed end scissors: the risk isn’t worth the reward.

If you’re looking to toughen up and want to experience true pain, try plucking out your nose hairs with tweezers. Jokes aside, it really is a good method for removing the odd hair that sticks way far out of your nose.

A pair of high quality metal tweezers are our go-to for this. All the boys here at TAM use The Shears, but any will do.

Last update on 2021-01-20 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

You don’t risk removing too many nose hairs, partially because you’ll pass out from pain before you get there.

It’s worth a shot before going to find blunted scissors, but be warned: after some plucks, you’ll be forced to sit down and breathe for a few minutes before getting back to tweezing.

The Chest

What Women Like

A wide number of surveys, as well as the comment section from any Hugh Jackman photo, suggest that women prefer what’s known as a ‘tiger line,’ or a natural stream of hair that runs from your chest, down your stomach, and connects with your pubic hair.

Guys, we get it. Deciding how to groom your chest hair can be difficult. As a first step, consider what you already have going on for the rest of your body hair.

If you have a beard, a smooth chest should be out of the question. But if you’re clean shaven, a smooth chest might not be a bad option.

Again, it’s all about being consistent.

Should I Fully Shave My Chest?

Smooth, hairless chests tend to look great in photos and movies, but unless you’re David Beckham, the same look isn’t easy to pull off in real life. Often, shaving your chest bare leads to irritation and bumps along with painful and itchy stubble a few days later.

A good rule to go by is this: unless you have absolutely ripped chest and abs, you shouldn’t go bare. If you’re reading this and you happen to have absolutely ripped chest and abs, good for you—celebrate by going to a waxing salon and tearing out all of your chest and stomach hairs.

For the rest of us, even those who are physically fit but don’t have absolutely ripped abs, a little chest hair goes a long way. Besides creating discomfort, a completely shaven chest can appear boyish to some ladies.

On the flip side, too much hair can hide and distract from what you’ve got. The key is in the balancing act.

Trimming Your Chest With an Electric Razor

If you’re looking to trim down on your chest hair, start by using an electric trimmer.

No products found.

Don’t touch the razor unless you really feel it’s necessary.

The electric trimmer allows you to cut down on the sheer volume of hair, and you won’t risk cutting out your masculinity.

Electric trimmers reduce irritation for both yourself and for your partner. Plus, you can use different trimmer fences to determine how short you want to go with your chest hair. Start long and just retrace with shorter and shorter trimmer fences until you hit your ideal length.

If You Have A Hairy Chest

Keep the hair off your shoulders and back.

If your chest hairs are quite long, it won’t hurt to trim everything with an electric razor.  Just don’t trim down to the skin.

Be honest with your body type: physically fit with some muscles to show off? Leave some hair but cut it short. A little on the heavier side? Still trim, but you can leave a bit more hair on.

You’ll look clean, detail-oriented, and masculine as hell.

Not So Hairy Chest?

Don’t worry if you don’t have enough hair to wrangle into a ‘tiger line.’ For some men, having only a small amount of chest hair may seem like a godsend.

Clean up whatever hairs you do have by using an electric trimmer. Take off enough so that your chest hairs don’t appear wiry, and pluck out any hairs that stick out in random places.

Leave as much of that hair as you can while tidying up.

What About Waxing Your Chest?

Waxing is great for guys with tons of hair. It’s a better option than shaving with a wet-razor because you won’t get the stubble and irritation.

If you go to a professional salon, they’ll know how to remove lots of hair without damaging your masculine image. If you are committed to a completely hairless chest and stomach, wax it all.

Don’t use a razor: there’s too much discomfort involved.

Another benefit to waxing is how long you’ll be able to enjoy a silky smooth chest. Hairs take weeks to grow back after waxing compared to just a day or two with shaving.

You can also use home waxing kits to upkeep, though a trip to a waxing salon is a good idea to start.

Using Depilatory Creams to Remove Chest Hair

Depilatory creams like Nair work well for some guys, though they’re difficult to recommend because so many people have reactions to the harsh chemicals.

Last update on 2021-01-20 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

It may be worth a shot, but you can easily groom any situation with an electric trimmer, tweezers, and enough wax.

The Back

Public sentiment on back hair is pretty much unanimous. The people have spoken and the people don’t like it. So really, the question becomes, ‘how do I remove my back hair?’

This depends on how much back hair you have.

If you have a lot, take a trip to a waxing salon and have it all removed. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do yourself with back hair because your arms just can’t reach.

In between waxings, you can use an electric trimmer and keep the volume as low as possible. There are attachments for electric trimmers that can help you trim up in hard to reach areas like the middle back.

For hairy shoulders, use an electric trimmer or go with the razor to shave it down to the skin. Shoulder skin is tougher than chest skin, so it can take a wet-shave without too much irritation. Just be sure to properly prep your skin with a hot shower, shaving cream or gel, and a moisturizer afterward.

The Armpits

Armpits are fairly easy to groom and all you really need is a pair of scissors. Don’t shave your armpits bare unless you need to do so for an athletic event. But really, not even all olympic swimmers shave their pits, so neither should you.

A good way to know which hair to trim is to raise your arm up and then bring it down and push it back as if it was a wing. Pretend you are a flying bird or like you’re skiing really fast.

A few stray hairs might be peeking out where your chest and armpit meet. With the one arm that isn’t pretending to be a flying bird, take a pair of blunt edged scissors and trim down the stray hairs.

That little trick will ensure that no hairs are crawling out of your short sleeve shirt or anything noticeable or distracting. Otherwise, people expect to see armpit hair, and it becomes distracting if there is none.

A few quick snips will do the trick here.

Arms And Legs

Similar to the armpits, people expect hair on the arms and legs. Unless you need to shave for an athletic event, leave the hair on your arms and legs alone. If you’re worried that you have too much hair, use an electric trimmer to take off a few millimeters at a time.

Whatever you do, don’t sacrifice your masculinity because you were like the artist who didn’t know when to call his painting finished. Some areas simply don’t need much if any grooming. Arms and legs fit in that category.

The Pubic Area (a.k.a The Main Event)

Pubic manscaping is a high stakes game. The key to good downstairs grooming is consistent with the advice above: keep it simple and don’t do anything that looks unnatural.

You’re only cleaning up here. No need to polish everything to a brilliant, blinding shine.

Remember, if you have a hairy chest, legs, arms, and a beard, but have a sleek, bald groin, you’ll look bizarre. Any surprises should be positive when you’re unveiling your goodies.

If you want to take off all your hair for maximum speed and aerodynamics, be sure to do your prep-work. Hot shower, lather well, and moisturize after.

The Bush

This is the easiest part to grooming your groin. Take an electric trimmer and trim down the hairs to whatever level you’re comfortable with.

If you want a completely hairless look, still start with the electric trimmer. It’ll be easier to see where you’re at with your shaving and you will reduce irritation and bumps. This isn’t the place to shave in a basketball design or the logo for your favorite sports team.

Keep it simple.

The Balls

If you’re not sweating a bit when you’re shaving your balls, you’re not giving the activity the respect it requires. The shower isn’t the place to become an amateur vasectomist.

Don’t use an electric trimmer on your balls.

Don’t even think you’re going to get away with trimming hair down at a distance. It’s like gambling and drugs: you think you’re safe and have it all under control and then life falls on you like an injured scrotum.

Don’t use a depilatory cream on your balls.

Also, this may seem like a given, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it. Keep the caustic chemicals away from your babymakers.

When you go into the shower, let water run over the area for a few minutes and use either bar soap or conditioner to lather. Take a razor and pull the skin taut.

Shave in small areas at a time, and rinse your razor often. Slow and steady is what you want here, so don’t go shaving your balls when you’re late for work. The balls take time to evenly shave and it’s easy to miss spots.

Keep a razor in the shower and do a little upkeep here and there. It’ll ensure that you don’t let your situation get out of control and it will make it easy to shave off stray hairs that avoided your careful gaze before.

The Shaft

No matter what sort of grooming you do downstairs, you’ll want to shave the hairs at the base of your penis. You don’t want your member to look like Martin Van Buren.

Shave the shaft with a razor at the same time you shave your balls. For an extra illusionary inch in length, shave from the shaft into your bush about five millimeters or a quarter inch.

This small corona will make you look bigger, which under no circumstances can I imagine being a bad thing. Be careful not to shave too far into the bush or else you’ll make it look like your meat and two veg is wearing a fur hat, which is both funny and not what you want.

The Perineum

The perineum, otherwise known as the gooch, taint, or grundle, is arguably the most difficult area to manscape. Our best advice is to stay away from the razor.

The stubble that grows back can be extremely uncomfortable and razor heads are just too bulky to do a good job. If you feel strongly about a clean perineum, go to a waxing salon and have the professionals take care of it.

I hate to say this because I feel like that guy who offers a seat at the gambling table and says ‘oh come on, it’s just a couple bucks,’ BUT, if you don’t feel passionate about a bald perineum but you still want to clean up a bit, you can use an electric trimmer.

Go back and reread my section on testicle-shaving now.

If the electric trimmer gets even close to your balls, it’ll reach out like a magnet and attach when you least suspect it. So please, please, gentlemen—if you trim your perineum with an electric trimmer, don’t even think about straying up and taking a few hairs off the balls.

You will hurt your scrotum, you will blame me, and I will crumble under the guilt.

The Backside

Don’t shave your backside with a razor. I even mentioned it in my top 11 tips for manscaping at the start of this piece.

The stubble grows back and you’ll remember the next two weeks as the most painful experience of your life.

A waxing salon is a good solution for this area as it’s hard to do on your own and no matter how good of friends you have, they probably won’t be willing to lend you a hand.

If you have a small handheld trimmer, it can help clean up a bit in between visits to the salon.

Best Manscaping Tools

Now you’re armed with the knowledge you need to succeed in manscaping. You heard me discuss the importance of preparation, moisturizers, razors, etc.

You also heard me mention electric trimmers exactly 27 times. So what are the best tools for the job?

Heads up: If you’re in the market for a few new manscaping tools, hold out until the end where I list out the best value-for-money total package kits.
