How to Manscape: Level Up Your Shaving and Trimming So You’ll Always Look Your Best

Are you a trim-and-go kind of a guy, without giving the process much thought? We love that for you—but to be honest, you might want to reconsider. Did you know that, equipped with just a few key pieces of information and a few clutch tools, you could make your daily routine not only easy and fast, but with better results?

They key is in the tools and technique—in short, in the manscaping.

What is Manscaping?

Manscaping is a fairly new word in our urban vocabulary. And if you haven’t heard it before, it can seem a little strange or even intimidating! But don’t worry—although manscaping is a modern term, it’s a practice that that well-groomed guys have always followed, and it’s easy to learn.

Manscaping simply means keeping yourself, particularly the hair on your face, head, and body, in good order—trimmed, fresh, and smelling great. More than just a quickly getting the job done with the same tool and routine you’ve had for years, manscaping levels up your skin and hair care to leave you feeling confident, clean, and ready for anything, whether you’re heading to an interview, a date, or a night on the town with friends.

How do I Start Manscaping?

Set Your Grooming Strategy

Good manscaping is easy when you know the right steps. And the first step is to strategize your manscape style for head, face, and body. Are you going to go to the barber for haircuts, keep your face clean shaven, and trim body hair only? Or rock a well-kept beard and trim body hair too? Do you want all three?

It’s important to remember that not every man will share the same approach to manscaping. It really does depend on your personal style and approach to body and facial hair. You need to decide on a look that leaves you feeling at your best while also feeling natural, with a routine that fits into a realistic maintenance schedule. Look at images online or at guys around you to find inspiration, but don’t be afraid to create a fresh look that is all your own.

Choose Your Trimming and Shaving Tools

Once you have your strategy, choosing the right tools becomes a whole lot easier.

If you’re looking to trim beard and hair only – rocking a nice buzz cut, DIY mullet, fade, or your own custom invention, and a beard or mustache to pair it with – a tool such as the ER-GB42 is the perfect choice, with a quick-adjust dial lets you easily choose from 19 trim length settings between 0.5mm and 20mm.

For body hair only, you can choose a single tool that’s built for precision even in sensitive or hard-to reach places. The ER-GK60 fits the bill, with a unique V-shaped head that works anywhere on the body, even in the tight spots.

For face, head, and body, you’ll want a highly versatile tool such as the ER-GB80, which offers the best of all worlds. Not only does it have a quick-adjust dial with 39 different length settings, it includes three attachments for the face and body so you can always get the precise hair length you need.

If you’re craving the one-and-done versatility of a shaver, face trimmer, hair trimmer, and body hair trimmer all in one—with the freedom to switch styles, and attachment heads, according to your whim—MultiShape is the tool you’re looking for. With this one device, you eliminate the need for separate shavers, clippers, and trimmers. And that’s great for the environment (less to purchase, less e-waste from throwing out old tools) and a great way to keep your vanity drawers and countertop neat and tidy! Its streamlined size is great for traveling, too.


The Steps of Manscaping

Finally you’re ready to switch that trimmer to ON and create your new style. But even if you’re primed for some serious manscaping, you don’t want to dive in with your trimmers or shaver without taking care of skin care basics. Like any type of hair removal or maintenance, you need to develop routines that protect and promote healthy skin.

It’s always a good idea to manscape during or just after a warm bath or shower, when skin is moist and supple.

It’s also much easier to trim or shave after exfoliation, so give warm skin a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cells. This will help your trimmer, shaver or razor move more smoothly over an area.

Finally, if you have an area of body or facial hair that you have left to run wild for far too long, tackle it with scissors before trimming or shaving. This will create an easier area to work with and lead to better and more uniform results.


Manscaping Means Detailing

When it comes to manscaping, it pays to sweat the small stuff. And keeping on top of the details will give you a much cleaner and sleeker look. Those stray nose hairs, ear hairs, untidy eyebrows, and other rogue areas of fuzz can undermine even the most valiant of manscaping efforts, so take care not to overlook them. The ER-GN30 Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer is designed for those small problem areas that need dedicated attention. With useful wet and dry functionality, and an easy-to-use, dual-edge blade, it can have you looking sharp and sleek in just a few minutes.

Finish Strong

Manscaping isn’t just about eliminating unwanted fuzz. It’s also about feeling fresh and smelling great. One of the best ways to do this is to use facial and body products to enhance your manscaping experience. This could be your favorite oatmeal face scrub and sandalwood beard oil, or a moisturizer to enhance the softness of your skin. Think scented products are just for girls? Think again. A subtle touch of a scent can take your grooming from good to amazing. Not only will you feel more confident, you will find that others notice you for all the right reasons.
