How To Be Metrosexual
The latest buzz on how to be a metrosexual leaves you wondering what you need to do. It's all about cleaning up with attitude and letting go of your old stodgy, "man's man" ways.
What you need to be a metrosexual:
- High quality grooming products
- Well tailored clothes that fit
- Something to make you smell good
How to be metrosexual:
- Manscape. A little bit of hair is okay, as long as it's on the head. The rest of it can come off. You may do it yourself, or better yet, go to a professional who can rip your hair out by the root, keeping it from growing back for a while. Yeah, it hurts, but women have known for quite some time that looking good often requires a little pain. Deal with it. You're the one who wants to know how to be metrosexual.
- Tailored clothes. Toss the baggy, saggy jeans and spend a little more money on some that fit. If you can't find any, take them to a tailor and make them fit. When you shop for clothes, always fit the largest part of your body and head straight to the tailor to have the rest taken in. Your tailor will quickly become your second best friend—right after your professional hair ripper (aka waxing technician). While the tailor works his magic, ask for extra clothing tips on how to be metrosexual. He's in a position of knowing what the other guys are doing.
- Smell good. This means taking at least one shower per day and more if you work out. Never go straight from the gym to a date with anyone you plan to see again. If you decide to wear cologne or after shave, take a detour around the drugstore and head for the finest department store for the most expensive fragrance you can afford.
Mani-pedi. In metrosexual language, this is the term for a manicure and pedicure. With nail salons on every corner in most towns, you shouldn't have any trouble finding someone to clip the hangnails and cuticle trim. A metrosexual man never has jagged nails.
- Finishing touches. When it's time to zoom in for the kiss, avoid scratching her lips with parched, chapped skin. Apply chap stick when needed. If you have flyaway hair, tame it with gel or mousse—but not too much, or you'll look plastic. Knowing how to be metrosexual means knowing where to draw the line on the finishing touches.
Learning how to be metrosexual is an art. It's about looking extremely well groomed without trying and being comfortable in cashmere.
