November 22, 2005
Most men are diligent about hair grooming above the neck, such as 83% for head hair and 56% for the ears and nose, according to the “Wahl’s 2004 grooming” survey by Wahl Clipper Corp., Sterling, IL. Of the 20% of men who admit to grooming below the neck, 16% target private parts, 9% the chest, 8% the back and 4% leg hair. Generation Y men take off the most hair. Also, Wahl found more than half of respondents still prefer the barber, while 39% opt for a stylist. Men in the southern U.S. are more likely to get their hair cut every two weeks. Only 9% of American men have gotten a manicure or pedicure and only 7% have had a facial. More info: www.wahl.com.
