How did the standards of male beauty change

Men have always sought to be attractive, stylish, successful and, of course, like ladies. If it was demanded by fashion, they became more manly or sexier, carelessly nonchalant or pointedly concise. A special role in this transformation was played by hairstyles, mustache-beards, tan and inflated torso.

1900s
Time wrestlers and strongmen1
The performances of the strongman Eugene Sandow at the beginning of the 20th century caused the same delight in women as in the 60s concerts of “The Beatles”. Arnold Schwarzenegger has several statuettes depicting a bodybuilder.

1910s
Refined elegance2
The First World War brought a mustache a la bicycle handlebar (handlebar) into a peaceful life, which was considered extremely beautiful and courageous.

1920s
Licked hair and a languid look3
Everyone is crazy about cinema and Rudolph Valentino - the stars of silent movies. Almost any man with licked hair and parting closer to the middle, like the first sex symbol of Hollywood, automatically became a written handsome.

1930s
Busty4
The world is increasingly imitating the stars.The ideal of male beauty is a fit figure with good posture, broad shoulders, narrow hips, strong muscles. Clark Gable's famous sexy pencil mustache began to shave every second man.

1940s
The masculinity of the war years5
The key image of a man during the Second World War is austere, courageous, drawn into shape, without any facial hair, as wartime required.

1950s
Deliberate sexuality6
The 50s were remembered by the style of rockabilly and high sexy handsome Elvis Presley, who sighed languorously into the microphone and danced his signature dance. A popular hairstyle is a poured lick on his forehead.

Rebellious spirit7
The daring handsome man Marlon Brando from the movie “Savage” imitate thousands of young men on motorcycles around the world, they wear leather jackets and are called “cool guys”.

1960s
Penetrating gaze and merciless sexuality8
At this time, the standard of male beauty was Alain Delon: a tanned, athletic young man with boyish features and a penetrating gaze of blue eyes.

Freedom of expression9
The end of the decade was marked by the rise of hippie and psychedelic rock.Jim Morrison, the frontman of The Doors, was fascinated by his unique charisma and deep lyrics. At the very sight of him, the girls fought in sexual ecstasy, and the young boys committed insane acts.

1970s
Pumping iron10
While the hippie movement is growing everywhere and men cannot be distinguished from women, Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes a sixfold “Mr. Olympia.” Women go crazy, men envy, applaud standing and go to the rocking chair.

1980s
Sport beauty11
The series “The Rescuers of Malibu” is increasingly fueling interest in sports men with a stunningly even bronze tan, relief muscles, and preferably in red shorts.

1990s
Grunge wave12
The 90s were marked by a grunge rock wave that gave birth to a new generation of people who didn’t care what to wear and how to look. Just take a look at Kurt Cobain - the lead singer of the band “Nirvana” (although this didn’t stop him from being handsome and driving hundreds of thousands of female fans crazy).

2000s
Metrosexual millennium13
The era of metrosexuals. David Beckham, a professional footballer with all the attributes of a gentlemanly set of the new millennium: six dice press, salon styling and expensive clothes, is considered the standard of male beauty.

Carefree hipsters14
Hipsters fill the world.Easy negligence and beardiness, vintage items, choice of subtlety or muscularity, cell or strip, glasses, tattoo and lighthearted look. The perfect man is ready. Especially if it's Ryan Gosling.

Our days15
Now more and more popular are the beard and long hair gathered at the crown. This trend is so powerful and ubiquitous that they even gave it a name - lumbersexuality, or “lumberjack style”.
