Manscaping is so much more than shaving your balls. Any guy who has applied even the mildest effort knows that you can quickly develop a lot of questions. We’re going to tackle some of those today by discussing pubic hair styles and techniques for achieving them. Strap in boys, because today we’re diving deep into the jungle of manscaping with our reveal of hidden pubic hair removal tips.
We’re going to get into some intense pubic hair styles in a minute, but we have to first cover the basics. Partly, this is for those of you who haven’t really tried anything beyond a basic trim/shave. Mostly, it’s because a lot of the advanced styles start with a basic trim and work from there.
It is as it sounds. This is the easiest and least desirable pubic style in the world. Simply do nothing and let that bush grow wild and free. It won’t look very appealing; it’s a huge deterrent to anyone who might otherwise be willing to go down on you; it will smell terrible, itch horrendously and lead to massive irritation. You might not think about it much, but wild pubic hairs get tangled and pulled a lot. It’s not fun. Still, this is the starting point, so we need to establish it for reference.
This is how a lot of guys approach their very first manscaping session. They grab a Lawn Mower and trim everything uniformly. It you’re serious about the simpleton, use the guard at a longer setting. It gives you more wiggle room for experimentation. Ultimately, this style gets its name because there is no variation. Everything ends up a uniform length. There are no edges, and it’s a simple look overall. But, it’s a marked improvement from the megabush.
The Basic Triangle
This is the introduction to shaped and layered manscaping. The triangle is achieved in two steps. Step one: trim the entire bush to the longest setting on your Lawn Mower. Step two, shorten the trimmer setting and create a large, deliberate triangle out of your pubes. When you get clean lines, the triangle demonstrates deliberate care in your technique and looks loads better than the things listed above. It’s the first step into a larger manscaping world. And, we’re going to come back to this one a lot later.
The Landing Strip
This is a popular choice for men and women. You’ve likely seen it at some point in your life. The landing strip is a simple principle, but it introduces some key concepts that help with more advanced styles. You achieve a landing strip by first trimming everything to the longest setting on your trimmer. From there, you remove the guard (or shorten it depending on preference), and get a closer trim on your pubes to leave a sleek line from the happy trail to the junk. Typically, a landing strip will be accompanied by a fully smooth shaft and balls. That makes this the first style on the list to utilize the Plow.
The mankini is similar to the landing strip, but it has a little more shape. You can think of it as existing somewhere between the mankini and the triangle. Both the mankini and landing strip are good for really reducing your pubic presence. A lot of ladies prefer this, but if you’re committing to someone, it never hurts to ask.
The Surgery Prep
This has a few other common names: the naked mole rat, the prepubescent and the baldy. You should have a clear idea of what we’re talking about. This leaves you completely without visible pubic hair anywhere. It looks weird (see above names) and comes with some major drawbacks. This is by far the itchiest and reddest way to manage your lower body. So, unless you have a medical or sports-related reason to go this route, it probably isn’t preferable.
Pro Tip #1
We’re about to delve into some more advanced pubic styling. Before we do, we’re going to provide our first pro tip for pubic hair removal. Avoid stubble. There are parts of your body that you’re going to decide to shave, and that’s fine. For the rest, you’ll use a trimmer. What a lot of guys overlook is that a trimmer can get close enough to get you into the stubble/shadow length of hair. It’s coarse, and your balls won’t like rubbing against it. Instead, keep trimmed hair just a little longer and it won’t get that itchy, scratchy texture.
The Many Facets of the Triangle
Technically speaking, you can do advanced forms of most of these styles. We’re going to focus on a few derived from the triangle because they’re a lot of fun. So, for reference, step one for all of these is to get into a basic triangle. From there, you can start doing the cool stuff.
Remember the old Scream movies? Turns out, you can make your pubic hair look a lot like the famous mask. Once you have your triangle, you can use your trimmer to make some eye sockets and a mouth. If you’re feeling simple, you can go for an easier mouth shape. Regardless, you’re likely to have pubic hair that looks surprised. It’s always great for a laugh, and that’s exactly what every guy wants to hear as soon as he drops his shorts!
Happy Heart (Romantic)
Women always talk about how they want a more sensitive man. Well, nothing speaks to sensitivity like having heart-shaped pubes. Again, start with a triangle. The bottom point (closest to your nuts) will remain unchanged as the point of the heart. Simply trim away at the top to form that iconic heart shape. Don’t worry if it looks a little asymmetric. Poorly shaped pubic hearts, like sloppy wrapping on Christmas gifts, are endearing.
Pro Tip #2
We’re going to take a quick break for the next pro tip from our arsenal of hidden pubic hair removal tips. This one’s the easiest. Use a Magic Mat. Cleaning pubes out of every corner of your bathroom is easily the most unpleasant part of manscaping (unless you sneeze while shaving your balls). A Magic Mat eliminates that problem. Just lay it on the floor and stand over it while you shave and trim. Nothing could be simpler. Ok. Back to advanced manscaping styles!
The Hanging Man
This isn’t as morbid as it sounds. Well, maybe it is. This one is a lot tougher, so you want to get some practice hours on your trimmer before you try it. The shape is going to roughly resemble a crucifix (yes people actually do this). So, the top points of the triangle will be the ends of the arms. The bottom point is the feet. You want to trim away at the middle sections to craft a body and head. If it sounds tough, you can start with a basic cross first and move on to the more advanced look next time around. Hey, a lot of guys like to claim they can make their partners see God. Well . . .
Most guys take the low-hanging fruit and make their arrow point towards the junk. You can go with the crowd, but true pioneers are more creative. That arrow can point anywhere. Just make sure you have a good conversation piece to answer the inevitable question of why it isn’t aimed at your junk. And, for the true adventurers, you can actually have more than one arrow trimmed into your pubes. The only limit here is your creativity.
Wrapping it Up
We only covered a few fun styles, but you can easily see how much potential rests in your trimmer. We’re going to finish this session with a couple more pro tips and a final, fantastic style as a result of our now-known hidden pubic hair removal tips.
Finishing Like Pro
There are three more things to know about removing pubic hair, and they have surprisingly little to do with the techniques themselves. Instead, great manscaping involves good care after you put the blades away. This can be summarized with three technological masterpieces that fully complete your manscaping experience: Crop Cleanser, Crop Preserver, and Crop Reviver.
The cleanser is a body wash designed to help restore your skin after a manscaping session. It hydrates, exfoliates and heals. The Preserver is a ball deodorant. After you shower, rub some into your junk and surrounding area. It’ll keep you smelling great, help you regulate moisture and keep you feeling cool and friction-free. If you haven’t tried it, you definitely underestimate it. The last piece is the Crop Reviver. It’s a toner that provides a few more healing tools to minimize irritation after a trim and/or shave.
The Sad Clown
Now that we’ve covered the rest, it’s time to introduce you to one of the most challenging manscaping styles around. It’s a medium difficulty in terms of execution, but actually pulling it off requires a rare kind of masculinity. Unlike the other advanced styles, this starts with a megabush. You’re going to leave things as long as possible on the top (the clown’s wig). In lower sections, you can trim eyes and cheeks. The nose and frown well be longer pubes left after you shape the face. If you think you can pull this one off, let us know how it plays out in the end.
That’s enough manscaping for this session. If you want more, feel free to browse Manscaped.com. We never cease in our efforts to make it the best resource you can find for all of your manscaping needs.
