A Handy How-to Guide to Manscaping: Use Meridian
Did you know a reported 50% of men regularly trim their pubic hair? We initially thought that number would be higher for some reason.
We’re willing to bet that a few in the survey said they don’t, even though they do, for the modesty of it all. Ball trimming is an important topic, so there’s no reason not to be proud of it.
Trimming pubic hair is not embarrassing and it’s time we start being more honest about the safest and most efficient ways of doing it without holding back. There’s simply no reason to beat around the bush, it’s better to trim it instead, especially with all the great waterproof trimmers out there.
Meridian Grooming has a lot of buzz around its brand these days; it seems like everywhere you turn, someone’s mentioning their new favorite manscaping, grooming, trimming all-in-one swiss army knife-style trimmer, The Trimmer. And yes, it cuts very well “down there.”
The waterproof trimmer handles coarse hair, curly hair, and regular hair all the same – with finesse – thanks to its hygienic, rust-resistant, and replaceable ceramic blade build. This gear helps you avoid nicks and snags. That’s supreme news considering where it is going to be used.
Should I Start Manscaping?
Whether shaving is absolutely necessary may actually be a question best suited for a medical professional, but the real answer is that many people just like the look and feel. That’s really all the justification anybody needs to get started.
Figure out what you’re comfortable with, what feels good, and maybe even what excites your partner.
Shaving Your Balls With a Trimmer: Safety First!
Whether you were cutting the hair on your chain, your toes, or anywhere else, we’d dole out the same advice: be careful with the blade. When talking about “where the sun doesn’t shine,” we encourage all to take even more precautions when giving a self-haircut.
Rule number one is no sudden movements. All jokes aside, it is important to remember the skin down there is more sensitive and thinner than other parts of the body. If you want a result that’s nick-free and super smooth, then a careful shave is a major requirement.
A lot of that has to do with how you actually approach your skin with the trimmer. For the safest trim, keep the backside of the trimmer flat against your skin so the blades are more parallel against it. Don’t go stabbing with the trimmer.
Find the Right Trimmer for Body Hair
Prepare the tools! You must have a razor, but not the one you use on your face. Instead, it is much better to get an electric clipper or trimmer. Trimmers work best because they cut the hair near the surface. This cut ensures that there isn’t “stubble” down the line.
The best trimmers for manscaping are going to be angular in form, designed with the right fit to glide alongside the natural shape of the user’s body. The pros will jump in here with a reminder: don’t forget to pull the skin so it’s tight and you maintain control. Move carefully.
The Trimmer by Meridian is a must-have whether manscaping is a new domain to be mastered or a familiar road. For those who are looking for a partner to support the trimming habit, The Works Package, with a renewable subscription option, might be what the doctor ordered.
The Works Package includes a trimmer with adjustable guide combs (9-6 mm and 9-12 mm), a brush for cleaning, and the charger (USB). It runs for about 90 minutes on a full charge, and a power indicator helps make keeping track of its battery level simple.
Additionally, the Up-Here Trimmer comes with a small lamp, cleaning brush, and charger (USB). Cleaning it is a snap thanks to the detachable blade module. 30 minutes of trimming is promised after a full charge, just enough time to get in a cut or two.
Think About the Whole Package
When manscaping, it is important to make sure the whole package is presentable. For instance, you will want to smell good when you look good. A decent body spray goes a long way these days.
If you’re using Meridian, use The Spray to become instantly alluring with a citrus scent before stepping out the door. Into feet? Use the Foot Spray. It is both cooling and antibacterial.
Do a DIY mani-pedi with the Nail Kit, and slap on The Brief to let the boys breathe a little better after their freshest haircut.
The kit comes with replacement blades, which generally last about three months. They’re fairly easy to put on, take off, and keep clean.
The Works shave kit is housed in a convenient to-go pack with two inside mesh pockets to tuck away the trimmers and any extra goodies you may need to stash for the road. It’s water-resistant too, meaning it is safe to keep under the sink in the bathroom.
Another major perk for any trimmer is being waterproof and cordless/rechargeable. If you can find models that offer both, you are on the right track to an experience that will be comfortable, smooth, and sensational.
Consider a Pre-Shower Jam
Put on your favorite playlist and start up a warm soapy shower to get the skin ready.
Experienced trimmers know that a warm shower will surely open things up in the nether region. The warm water helps relax the skin, stimulates blood flow to the groin, makes everything hang low, and opens up the hair follicles and pores. If you’re doing the math, you’ll see that the result is prime-cutting conditions.
Some people will go for a closer cut with a safety razor. Don’t forget to grab the trimmer to get in a pre-trim before heading downtown, though. If not, managing the shave will be an uncomfortable process from start to finish.
While moving around, remain slow and steady. This is the story of the tortoise and the hare; you are the tortoise. Don’t rush through this. A nick isn’t the end of the world, but you’ll be putting your sex life on pause and risking infection if you don’t keep it clean afterward.
Don’t Forget About Post-Care
When you’re all done with johnny junior’s haircut, give the old boys a rinse in cool water to tighten pores and reduce the chances of ingrown hair.
You may want to apply an after-shave product, but be sure to find one that won’t contribute to over-moisturizing the skin (which bacteria love). Try to select something that’s ball-shaving approved.
Better yet, stock up on a lotion you can use each day to make sure they stay smooth and soft. You need one that’s going to resist bacteria and without perfumes, dyes, or anything irritating.
Keep Your Eyes on Meridian
Meridian knows what it takes to maintain a certain level of professionalism below the belt. The Men’s Grooming Company has been making headlines recently with its equipment, in particular, the Body Hair Trimmer slash Ball Shaver.

In the end, some men may still prefer the au natural look, even if it had its heyday a few decades ago. Nowadays, however, any tour around the locker room reveals that more and more men seem to be keeping everything clean and neat with a good trim.
