Boyzilian Wax, Manscaping, and Old School Shaving

Rasur des Tages, 21.08.09.jpgAccording to sifynews, the term 'boyzilian wax' is now replacing 'manscaping' in the new Macquarie Dictionary:

"The dictionary's new edition, which will hit the markets next month has nearly 1000 new words like "BESTIES", meaning one's best pals, the "boyzilian wax" replaces "manscaping", and "tweets" are no more just explained as chirps of baby birds."

In iAfrica, Wax On, Wax Off:

"As guys have become more aware of grooming themselves in general, most realise now that the natural 'Adam' look is a thing of the past... And, it's not only gay guys who are getting waxed."

From Express Night Out - Manscaping: One Intrepid Guy Tests Out the Latest Grooming Tools and Spa Treatments:

"When it comes to good grooming, guys usually catch a break. Forget to shave? A five o-clock shadow passes for scruffily sexy. (Not so much on a woman's legs.) Six months between haircuts? Shaggy hair equals surfer cool. Calloused hands? That';s a sign of a hard-working dude. But in an era of metrosexuals and a manly yet manicured president, those excuses start to fall flat."

In My Record Journal: Oldtime shaving shop opens in Southington

"People walking down Center Street Wednesday paused to look in a shop window at an antique barber's chair that caught their eye.

Ray Fournier smiled as two women stood outside talking as they looked in the window. His store, Gentlemen's Best, specializes in old world men's grooming supplies such as double edged and straight razors as well as shaving accessories such as brushes and soap.

"It's a whole lot cheaper and better than using the four blade disposable monsters," Fournier said. "We really missed the boat when we decided to go to a more disposable society."
