A new study by male grooming brand Braun reveals over 70 per cent of men admit to trimming their body hair, with almost a third taking over 20 minutes to get the job done. Why the fuss to be fuzz free? 41 per cent say a good trim boosts their confidence while almost a quarter admit it’s a labour of love to please their other half.

Moreover, 66 per cent of men view body and facial hair as the new sartorial accessory. With the laudable amount of care and precision going into this integral part of the male grooming routine. Here are the top styles dominating the male grooming landscape as found in Braun’s survey. Welcome to the world of manscaping.

The typical version of the tree involves shaping a moderate amount of hair on the upper chest with a small trail leading down to the stomach. Most popular among the younger guys, this evergreen approach to manscaping allows men to proudly display a standard growth of hair all year round.

These manscaping heroes rock a well-trimmed mat of hair on the top half of their chest but keep the stomach area smooth. As seen on Keith Lemon and Robbie Williams this look is popular across the board and sported by men of all ages.

This look epitomises ‘daddy cool’ with celebrity supporters including Tom Selleck and The Hoff. Fans of this style tend to be 25 years and over, with a chest full of hair to be proud of, keeping the look defined with a quick trim over the summer.

Not for the faint at heart, these hirsute gentlemen channel their inner-cavemen externally in a style most popular with guys over the age of 31. To keep this look under control trim the hair to a suitable length on a regular basis.
