There's A Word For Guys Like These...
They're called "Chicks"

Your landlord gets his back waxed, your lawyer has his eyebrows trimmed and your favorite politician indulges in a manicure on occasion. They just don’t talk about it.

Well-groomed men, step out of that closet. You’re welcome in any of the valley’s salons for treatments that range from facials to pedicures. The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole even offers a “Man-o-cure” for those hardworking hands.

“Manscaping” – the removal of male body hair – is only one component of a hip, put-together guy, says Ginger Root stylist Rob Hollis.

“Guys do manicures, facials,” Hollis said. “They’re getting color, not just for gray, but for a change. We’re definitely seeing more men in the salon, pulling them out of the barber shop and giving them more modern looks. Guys are getting waxing, separating the eyebrow. They’re definitely more well-groomed than they used to be.”

Mrs Caveman considers it a victory if I just keep from yankin' out my nosehairs and scratching my ass in public.

Men that do those things like waxing and manicures are called 'metrosexuals' :o)

You know, the more I visit this blog, the more I'm struck by how much you remind me of my dad. It's frightening, actually.

My brother shaves in between his eyebrows, but only because he'd have a big, hairy caterpillar crawling across his forehead otherwise. Not a pretty sight, I assure you.

Damn metrosexuals. What they need is a good ass-kicking from a Marine DI.

Honestly though, some eye brow waxing is just the thing for the "older" men. Has anyone SEEN Larry Hagman's eyebrows lately?

Well, the Caveman isn't a lot like my dad, except insofar as they're both totally not metrosexuals. There was a notorious showdown prior to my parents' wedding; my father refused to wash his hair, which is baby-fine and accordingly oily, and my mother said if he didn't wash his hair for the wedding she wouldn't marry him. (He has often lamented having caved in on that point...)

That said, I have no use for a man who spends more time on grooming than I do. My boyfriend doesn't even go to a barber; since he's largely bald anyway, he just takes clippers to his head whenever his hair gets to be about 1/8 of an inch. And even if I wanted him to shave something other than his face and head (which I don't), he wouldn't. Hallelujah - thank God for MEN!
