Proposal: Personal Hygiene, Health & Body Care
Proposal: Hair
Proposal: Facial Hair
Proposal: Shaving
Proposal: Beauty

Shaving, Hair and Facial Hair are all about personal grooming, and IMO fit very well in the Personal Hygiene proposal.

Looking at the sample questions in Beauty, there are currently 4. Three of them fit in body care ("What are the differences between BB cream and CC cream", "What are the tips to prevent dry skin in winter", and "Is the strong scent in Victoria Secret's lotion/body spray harmful?").
The fourth question is about what eye-shadow to wear for a romantic date, which is subjective. It has been voted down and I expect it to be closed as off-topic.

Questions in the Personal Hygiene proposal already cover shampoo and mascara. So questions on both hair care and on make-up are on-topic there.

This is a silly thing to say, but I personally don't find a site named 'Personal Hygiene' attractive.

Something like "Health and beauty" would cover the same details and get all the hygiene questions, while potentially attracting more users.

  • Not silly at all. The name of the site makes the first impression for everyone who considers using it. If it drives people away a more appealing name would be better. (Personally I don't like Personal Hygiene to much either)

  • 'Health & Beauty' is still not ideal, as it would imply that it covers everything under 'Health' which is a massive term. Maybe 'Grooming & Beauty' (I admit it's not as nice).

    I agree on the issue (thus +1), while I disagree on the name. Looking for a better name for Proposal “Personal Hygiene, Health & Body Care”

I understand the possibility of some duplicated questions that may occur, but "Beauty" is more about cosmetics, make up, skin care which serves as the foundation for makeup. If extended a little bit, it includes hair, but more of the hair styling perspective.

    I tend to disagree. To me, "Beauty" includes a lot more hair than just the styling perspective. Women shave their legs, men trim or shave their chest, both trim/shave/waxr their "privates". All those things can be picked up in Q&A from a "beauty" perspective... neither men, nor women like the little pimples that might show up if you're shaving/waxing/trimming your hair the wrong way, damaging your skin. And I know a truckload of beauty salons and cosmetic studios taking care of "grown-in hairs" and influencing the health of your scalp with the right haircut etc. (Just sharing my 2 cents.)
