Does anyone else cringe a bit when they see the Jonas Brothers’ Monsters of Teen Rock coiffed hair in Disney’s Camp Rock  promos?
Their stylists obviously are obviously getting a lot of hair action. His eyebrows could be insured by Lloyd’s of London. And I am obviously a thirty-eight-year-old woman, and not a six-year-old girl.
When you’re six, you want boys to have pretty hair; when you’re thirty-eight, you want men to have hair.
My six-year-old daughter, I hope, is several years from buying her first Teen Beat, but when she saw a TV commercial for Camp Rock she quipped, “He looks like a nice boy!”
Nice boy it is, although her mama does love some bongo-playin’, surfin’, shirtless Matthew McConaughey. But then, I wouldn’t approve if Miss C wanted to plaster a poster of McConaughey on her wall.
But McConaughey  does clean up well when he’s not surfing, and he does love his mama.
So what say ye about men and body hair? Are you a “little dab will do ya” kind of woman? Any men out there reading? Do you get it lasered and tasered? I remember in college the swim team guys and Lance Armstrong types shaving their legs. Last weekend when we were at the pool, resident Back-Hair Man was out with his family. He had such an impressive back of hair that my three-year-old looked at him and said, “That man funny!” Yikes. And then I proceeded to hand her a snack bag filled with cookies so she’d quit staring at his shoulder tufts.
