^^^Oh, I agree, currently there's a growing market for "male beauty" and it's catching on and becoming more affordable, but there will always be the old fashion group that feel it's too "girly"
Wide ranging subject. I guess we all have our limits. I don't neccessarily agree with any sort of waxing that's for sure. Definately no makeup. As for manicures and pedicures.....I don't see anything wrong with it. I've never gotten either but I would like to try some day since I don't think being a man translates into bitten off nails. Same goes for facials. Girls I know are always raving about them so I am kinda curious. Moisturizers I don't think should be considered feminine at all since we have dry skin too. Can't just soften it up with olive oil or mink oil (the kind you use to soften your leather shoes).
As for the whole metro thing......I'd say I am one. I won't say 'I'm proud of it' but I'm quite proud of the fact I am presentable all the time. Just cause I'm a man shouldn't mean I should have hair sticking out of my nose and my eyebrows meeting each other.

This probably doesn't count as much as the other things but occasionaly when i get my hair cut I get highlights which required them to put on that ridiculous cap which is incredibly feminine in my opinion. But it's well worth it because my hair looks teh awesome afterward.
But the whole metro look is where fashion is going, and fashion trends come and go and many people follow them. There's absolutely no problem with looking good. Waxing / pedicures / facials, hell if it makes your skin feel smoother and look better go for it. I don't have the desire to do any of that..at least yet....
Yesterday, I saw a commercial for L'Oreal wrinkle reversal for men. I always told myself that I was going to take care of my skin at an early age, even if it meant using female products.... :shock: Glad to see that companies are realizing that men never like to see wrinkles or imperfections either!
