Don't worry this isn't a bitter question haha. I really don't mind having to shave my legs do my hair and makeup ect, but I am curious why looking extra nice is a custom for women. Men just need to be clean really to be acceptable but most girls must doll themselves up to be considered attractive in society's eyes. I think also it has to do with woman liking to look nice, but what has caused this? Does anyone have a psychological or scientific reason for this?

At the most fundamental level, the man's role is to protect/provide, and the woman's role is to bear children to carry on the bloodline. Therefore women want to have physical attributes which suggest they will bear healthy children. You said "Men just need to be clean" - in some senses this is true, because a man's attractiveness is often judged on his perceived ability to protect, and not the cuteness of his face.0
