As unbelievable as it may sound, there is an increasing trend with hair removal for men. How did the previous look of man with massive chest hair become less appealing?
Why hair removal is becoming popular with men
There is no conclusive reason as to why the Burt Reynolds chest hair appeal has gone down in the last two decades. Some male athletes remove hair for practical reasons. They believe that hair increases the drag of the air or water, which significantly slows them down during a competition. Muscle builders who work hard in developing their pectorals, abdomens and biceps will want to properly showcase their body by removing any body hair.
