2020 brought a lot of change – to everyday life, and apparently, to men’s health.
A survey of 2,000 American men found 45% have experienced a bad haircut in the last year, and 57% of those hated it so much, they took drastic measures by buzzing it all off.
Forty-two percent of respondents took advantage of their time off during quarantine by experimenting with their looks, which included trying different hairstyles (61%), new clothing styles (52%) and growing out their beards (40%).
Four out of five (82%) deemed their experiments successful and said they’ll keep their new makeover post-pandemic.
Commissioned by GAINSWave and conducted by OnePoll, the study also revealed two in three men had moments in their lives that made them feel insecure about themselves.
Some insecurities that men have endured are weight gain (46%), quality of life (41%) and sexual performance (37%). Others said they felt insecure in areas such as hygiene, sexual and gender identity, and social anxiety.
In the bedroom, over a third (35%) of men struggle to get turned on, and 37% struggle to admit they’re having sexual performance issues.
