Facial hair can make a guy look distinguished. The same cannot be said of the back beard. If your man's ears are sprouting weeds or if he's a little too bushy below the belt, you may think it's high time he cleaned himself up. And perhaps it's high time you encourage him to.

"Manscaping" is a fairly new term. There was a time when body-hair removal was strictly for the ladies, but right now the hirsute look is decidedly out. Furry fellows are now expected to participate in bodily deforestation just as much as women. This might not be an easy concept for some guys to wrap their minds around, but it's a fact of life.

Once you've convinced your guy that manscaping is the way to go, the grooming plan could be a simple matter of a few swipes with a razor or a couple of tweezer plucks. But if you're dealing with multiple problem areas, a more involved plan of attack is essential. Here are some tips on how to get started with a reluctant manscaper.
