Today The New York Times attempts to make an interesting case on the topic of men’s beauty. The paper claims that an era of hairlessness (on more than just the face) is being ushered in among guys in college through their mid-thirties thanks to causes ranging from Gilette ads to Nivea to Brüno.
In case your guy wants to make like that slick-haired dude at your gym, we suggest keeping hair removal products around that he’ll think are meant for you, but in truth, both of you can (and will) definitely use.
These Schick disposables are not particularly feminine-looking, they last longer than most throwaway razors, and are only $8 for a pack of four. Keep a package around for you, but don’t get mad when your man raids the stash.
Also important to this newly-shaven boyfriend movement is a shaving cream that doesn’t scream “groooooming!” Get something that works for you but comes off being gender-neutral, like Philosophy’s shaving cream ($18).
We may have already noted the no!no! in our post on DIY lasers, but seriously, this FDA-approved device is so painless and easy to use, it deserves a second mention. Get one in black ($250) that you’ll love and your guy will feel totally comfortable using, too.
