Some trans* guys covet body hair, while others would do anything to avoid it. Like all effects of testosterone, whether or not you grow body hair is outside of your control and depends on a variety of factors including ethnicity, age, and genetics.
Since the rise of metrosexuality, male models have appeared more and more hairless. While a sweater of chest hair used to be seen as incredibly sexy, most guys these days at least take some steps to tame their hair. If you can’t grow body hair, take heart in the fact that many men would love to be in your position and spend so much time and effort on hair removal. There are a lot of benefits to completely shaving (or naturally not having hair on) your chest, back, and stomach. First off, it highlights your muscles. It also gives a more youthful and clean-cut look. If that’s what you’re after, it is not too difficult to shave your body hair using either a manual or electric razor. Waxing is also an option, but it usually involves getting at least partially undressed in front of another person, can cost more than shaving, and can be pretty painful. The hairless look has been sported by a lot of celebrities and models and is pretty fashionable:
Hairy guys shouldn’t lose heart, though, because it can also give one a mature, masculine look. Chest hair especially is considered sexy by many people. There’s even a gay subculture partially built around body hair. Even guys who keep most of their body hair still tend to trim and groom it a little bit though, either with nail scissors or electric trimmers. This is generally only necessary for your own comfort/preferences or if your hair is sticking out of your clothes in a really noticeable way. A lot of famous guys have recently shown off their hairy chests and stomachs, bucking the hairless trend:
So, either hairless or hairy, you can make it work. Don’t be ashamed of your abundance of body hair or complete lack thereof. Whatever you have going on, you’re in good company.
