How to Safely Manscape Down There
Many guys confess that manscaping pubic hair can feel a little intimidating, or they simply don’t talk about it at all. It’s like the first rule of manscaping your pubes is don’t talk about manscaping your pubes. Well, it’s time to change this culture of secrecy and embrace the fact that grooming down there is just part of the game.
Before you dive right in, you’re going to need a few things: the right tools for the job, a style you like and this helpful expert guide. Master that and you’ll be pruning those privates like a pro.
The key is confidence: start by finding a body hair trimmer you trust. #1 for safety is the Wahl Manscaper®. Its wrap-around safety guard and safe-touch blade all but guarantee a smooth, snag-free finish.
Next up: style. Before you start trimming it’s important you have an end goal, whether it’s a quick trim all over or a much balder move. Consult the Manscaper Style Finder for ideas and follow the steps below to achieve your new look.
Your 7-Step Manscaping Guide
Start Clean & Keen.
Start with a steamy shower (or bath) to clean and soften up those short and (or) long curlies. Ensure the Manscaper® is clean and powered-up. Turn off the shower, wash away soap and towel off to make sure your hair is clean and dried off. Wet hair is heavier and could give you patchy results.
Tame any Tangles.
Just like with a haircut or beard trim, you’ll want to gently comb out any snarls or tangles if you have them. Go slow at first to avoid painful pulls and jabs. After your hair is clear of obstructing tangles, you’re ready to get pruning.
Kick it into Gear.
Set your electric body trimmer to the length you want. If you are a novice, set the trimmer to its longest position for a longer trim. And set it to progressively shorter lengths as you work your hair into the style you want. It’s best to take off a little at a time.
Go with the Flow.
Gently trim in the direction your hair naturally grows and avoid cutting against the grain as much as possible.
Style with Precision.
Using your free hand, pull your skin taut as you get to shorter lengths to avoid folds of skin entering the guard or trimmer blade area.
Don’t Overdo It.
To avoid irritating sensitive skin, make as few passes as possible as you get into the shorter lengths. Remember to go gently and slowly.
Review Your Work.
Use a compact mirror to view hard-to-reach areas to ensure everything looks neat, and there are no strays that might poke through your clothing. Clean up the evidence – and you’re all done!
