It’s hard enough keeping up with all of the perfectly coiffed, expertly groomed women out there. When the metrosexual craze hit – and it hit hard in NYC – I couldn’t go more than two steps without seeing a man with better eyebrows (and cuticles) than me.
Call me old fashioned, but I like my men to look like….men. Chest hair and all. My aversion to pretty boys is being validated this season with masculinity fighting its’ way back into style. Real men, like Clive Owen and George Clooney, coursing with what The New York Times’ Horacio Silva dubbed “menergy” are letting their beards grow in, and their hair grow out.
I hope menergy is here to stay. Getting my hair done just hasn’t been the same since I've been forced to share my salon with dudes in foils.
For all you guys (or ladies with a guy in mind) out there who aren't ready to go full-on menergist just yet, though, this body scrub is the perfect compromise. It's a body scrub, which makes it a little metro, but the bamboo gives it a few menergy points.
