What Your Chest Hair Should Look Like
Chest hair can be pretty divisive. You are either really into it, or not. Even if we had to look at it objectively, some of the manliest men of all time had quite a bush. James Bond, Anil Kapoor and Chuck Norris—to name a few. Yet, there are some handsome hunks who can pull off bare-chested look like a boss. Case in point – Ryan Gosling, Ranveer Singh or Salman Khan. The truth is with such a laudable amount of care going into manscaping, we thought it’s only legit to inform you about the top styles that can accessorize your chest. Here goes!
It symbolises manliness like no other chest hairstyles. It’s the ‘daddy cool’ style, which is, more often than not, sported by men who’re old enough to be fathers. With celebrity supporters including Tom Selleck, Akshay Kumar and Alec Baldwin, it’s no wonder the style has to be worn proudly. Just keep the look under control with constant quick trims.
As the name suggests, this version of the style has moderate amount of hair on the upper torso with a small trail leading south. It’s rather popular among young guys who don’t want to come across too bushy but also don’t want to part ways with chest hair. This ever’green’ approach, as a result, let boys sport a happy tree throughout the year.
The One Sided Affair
This one is the manscaping underdog, and characterises a well-trimmed hair on the top half of the chest but a smooth bottom half. Smooth can become stubble but that’s as far the length of the hair on the bottom half can go. As seen on Don Draper, this look is popular and is sported by men of all ages.
It’s the favourite among the metrosexuals—ones who don’t shun the concept of going almost smooth. Keep the hair above the belly button at bay with only a small trail of hair across the stomach. And because it’s nearly smooth, chest hair shaving will be constantly required.
It’s sported by the likes of Ryan Gosling, David Beckham, Salman Khan, Ranvver Singh and Hrithik Roshan. Needless to say, it requires confidence, and a well-framed body (if not beefed up) to go along with the style. And with an increasing amount of women inclining towardsbare-chested bodies, are you game already?
Channel you inner-caveman in a style which is not for the faint of heart. There are only few who can ‘ape’ our ancestors and yet come across as a hirsute gentleman. You would have to frequently trim the hair to a suitable length to keep it under control. It can be quite a risk to pull off this look, so tread with caution.
