I never had a true makeover because I didn't need one. But I did start getting my shirts tailored to a more fitted look, experimented with haircuts, workout often, etc. There are people out there who specialize in this for men and women. Kim Seltzer comes to mind. She seems really good. I talked to her, but I didn't need her for the makeover.

Most of us still want masculine looking guys IMO...that not only look masculine but act it....

tho there is a trend to be more “gender neutral” with some guys & girls......like girls dressing more boyish & the other way around.......

Also deferring too much to one another can cause issues. You think you're being considerate but you're not being a leader, you're not being interesting. Leadership and showing respect are not mutually exclusive of one another...

There are a few men in these makeovers. Click each season bar on the right side where it says SEE MORE to drop down more photos for that season

The entire premise is ridiculously superficial and shallow. Unfortunately, that's how crowd is.

I personally like my men a bit rough around the edges & I have always LOVED long hair.

I like crinkles around the eyes, scars, crooked noses & big, bear paw hands with callouses. I'm not saying the polished, metro look is UN-attractive; I'm just saying I prefer 'em rough & tough looking. I'm aware my opinion is not representative of most women.

Obviously, this guy was tired of the women he was attracting and wanted to move it up a notch. His former looks said he was a party dude, and not serious about much. He would have attracted women who shared his views. Now, he looks handsome without all that hair, urban trendy, and I could see him dating a woman more interested in her career than partying.

If that’s what he wants, his new look says he’s on the way. I’d think anyone from eighteen to eighty would want to spruce themselves up if they are out in the dating world.

That's the point. Who are you attracting based on your appearance? Women who dress like hookers attract men looking for easy sex. Men who look like slobs attract lower tier women who can't do any better.

Ita....& masculine looking men in suits are going to attract feminine looking women that like fashion & wearing skirts & dresses....

Like attracts like....so the guys can’t get too carried away on a makeover that is too different for them....or they will attract a different type than they may be looking for.....

I love makeover before and afters, but most of these are generic, disappointing, and don't reflect the actual person.

The guy with the dreds I think improved. And the woman with the 80s pink power suit. And the hippie arty couple seem to have gotten a makeover that at least seems on theme. Everyone else seems off to me.
