Handsome Habit: Waxing

Posted in hair in the right places, hair removal, handsome habit with tags , , , , , , on July 16, 2009 by handsomemangroup

It’s not easy being handsome.  Sometimes it takes a bit of work.  We here at HMG believe that a little hard work never hurt anyone, especially if the work results in increased handsomeness.  One such habit is man-waxing.  HMG encourages regular waxing, trimming and manscaping.

To quote Fabio, “Back hair will get you nowhere…show her what’s underneath…smooth & molto sexy.”  (To watch Fabio demonstrate this concept himself, watch from 22 seconds onwards:

Handsome-man Hall of Fame member, Bruno, believes that waxing is so important that it made his essential A-Z guide for fashion: “V is for… VAXING. Hair removal und manscaping ist essential.  Be careful if you do it yourself, though – yesterday ich tried to self-wax mein arschenhaller und glued meinself to ze bed.”

Bruno also brings up an excellent point; more often than not waxing is best left to the professionals (or to an experienced and enthusiastic friend who wants to help).  We at HMG are in awe of the woman who operates “ted e bare.”  HMG was informed of her dedication to the cause of hair-free men by our own waxer extraordinaire, Marisa.  She’s so dedicated to the cause that she’s even managed to procure the domain www.manzillian.com. While she may not be able to service all the handsome men out there in the world, her FAQ provides very useful information to help assuage any doubts that men just short of achieving their full handsome potential may have.

So go on men, don’t let a little (or a lot) of hair stand between you and fully handsome self.


Skin is In

We were at a bar one night with a group of our friends, amidst a gaggle of scantily clad women who didn’t seem to like us very much (um, weird?  We are so cute!).  And suddenly our man-friend walks in, wearing a blue and white striped DEEP V-NECK tee under a SHEER white collared button down shirt.  Suddenly, he is surrounded by hungry women.  They oooh.  They aaah.  They start touching him.  They maniacally unbutton his shirt in an attempt to reveal the little morsel underneath.  Every time they see him after that, they inquire about that shirt.  Secret:  women love the deep v’s.  Now you know.  Some of us have even started wearing them ourselves to emulate the handsomeness (okay, one of us).

With that said, below you will see an example of someone admirably taking the deep v to the next level.  Thank you, Adrien Brody.  Thank you.

Feast Your Eyes on This

While the ladies at HMG are most definitely purveyors of handsome man flesh, we are not in the business of consuming animal flesh.  Therefore, it is important that we highlight how handsome being a vegetarian can be through gawking at PETA’s Asia-Pacific Sexiest Vegetarian Male, Shahid Kapoor.  He is by far the most handsome of this year’s winners.

Is Becks more posh than Posh? 

Here is an example of how to go from Rugged-Handsome to Polished-Handsome with just a comb and the right hair product.


With a simple change of hairstyle (aided by a bit of man product), Becks is now sleek enough to slide down any rope with ease.

Cabernet Sauvignon + Sheer White Outfit = Pure Handsomeness

This is truly a classic and one of the most handsome music videos ever made.

Whether it’s Hrithik Roshan dancing in a nightclub in pleather and mesh, Tom Selleck sporting a moustache and the shortest of shorts or a spiritual David Brent hanging out with some doves and his manly lady friend, we at HMG salute and appreciate all forms of handsomeness.

So go on, pour yourself a glass of your favorite wine and enjoy the smooth sounds of David Brent covering the classic Simply Red song “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”…

Since HMG is based in San Francisco, it is necessary to address the importance of proper attire for The Handsome Man when you don’t live in the warmest city. 

So how can a handsome man show off his assets without succumbing to unsightly chill bumps?

With a thick mustache, of course.


Keeping your upper lip toasty just makes sense.  Let those meaty thighs breathe, boys. 

Fashion, meet Function.
