High-maintenance
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia:


In modern American slang, a person is described as high-maintenance if they require 'a lot of attention in order to function normally'. The slang definition of high-maintenance is most often used to describe a person who requires a lot of attention to his or her appearance. The term is not necessarily gender-specific, though it is often used to refer to attractive women.

Examples of high-maintenance behaviour:

Having frequent professional cosmetic consultations, such as hair-dressing and manicures
Excessive vanity spending
Attention craving
Spending an hour in front of the mirror with a hair iron to flatten perfectly straight hair.
Alternatively, the term can refer to someone who requires a high emotional investment from their romantic or familial partner. Also, someone who spends a substantial amount of money or time on their appearance could be referred to as high-maintenance.

The term is not always considered derogatory, and some are self-proclaimed high-maintenance people.

The antonym of high-maintenance is low-maintenance.
