If you looked up metrosexual in any modern dictionary there would be a picture of me. Of course the caption would say "the opposite of this guy" and there would be a magnified inset showing my nasal hair in all it's dreadlocked glory.
Over the last decade or two there's been a shift in the male psyche. Pioneered by like minded celebrities, the metrosexual movement has become a growth industry, fast making ground in an area long considered the province of the female of the species. A growing number of young blokes no longer want to kick it like Beckham, they want to kick back like Beckham, get their nails done and chat about exfoliating while getting their nether regions waxed.
This after all is the instagram and tinder age, ocker has given way to lustre, and a less than well preened young lion is not suited to it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it - just making an observation as an entrenched Gen Xer. Not my cup of tea, but I don't look wistfully at the cravats, high pants and waxed mustaches of previous generations either.
Each generation has defining characteristics and Gens Y & Z certainly excel at it - defining that is. And waxing, and eyebrow shaping!
Of course all this waxing, shaping and shaving has to be done by someone, which brings me to the subject of this post - Lisa at Lisa's Waxing & Tinting in Claremont.
Northern suburbs women have known about Lisa and her superb service for some time and the growing number of men's services on her list shows that they too are becoming in the know.
Resilience were approached by Lisa to build her a modern web presence that showcases her services and enables her to take online bookings. Months down the track, her clients have embraced booking through the website which has freed up Lisa's time to do what she does best - make her clients feel good about themselves.
Hmm, maybe these dreadlocks should go!
