What she said… about body grooming

Body grooming, or what’s sometimes unflatteringly called manscaping. If you ask the Merriam-Webster Dictionary they’ll tell you it’s: “the trimming or shaving of a man’s body hair so as to enhance his appearance.”.

What women want… it’s the age-old question, and something even Mel Gibson, in his infinite wisdom, couldn’t figure out in the film of the same name.

Women talk. Baldness.

Balding… it’s something a lot of men deal with. And something, which might make you feel helpless, as your hair follicles disappear off to the great barber’s floor in the sky. If that’s you, you’re not alone. According to one study, it affects 16% of men aged 18-29 with that percentage increasing with age. In total 42% of all men will experience significant baldness.

Lockdown Locks

Lockdown locks – and what giving them up will mean

Lockdown forced us all to change our daily habits. And for many, that included grooming. During the lockdown, it appears that at least 50% of men stopped shaving, and grew lockdown beards or let their hair grow long.  Whether out of utter shaving inertia, or something different to do, the grooming rituals changed. We saw everything from fuzzy chins to full Father Christmas beards appear all over social media and

For all that we have moved on, there is still a stigma around talking about mental health. And men, in particular, seem to struggle with opening up and having a conversation. Why is that?
