Gen Y Men Choose Beauty Treatments, Not Power Tools

A recent survey has revealed that masculine activities like building work shed and using power tools are giving way to beauty treatments among men, which is a growing trend.

It is at the bathroom mirror rather than under the hood of the car that the Generation Y men choose to spend their time. In the survey, 1,251 men between the ages of 18-64 were asked to answer questions on male grooming habits. Some interesting stats revealed by the Australian survey stated –
