How should the very hairy man manscape in order not to look like Chewbacca just went bald'? You don't want a bald genital area with the surrounding areas hairy.
Aaron Marino of alpha m. advises to blend. Trim and shave the genital area taking it down or bald. Pubic area, thighs and stomach should be tapered. Use the guard as long as it will go. As you go closer, take it a bit shorter and then shorter the closer you get to the genital area. The key is to feather.
