Hair Portraits of the Presidents


From the NY Times:

"By the mid-19th century, beards returned after a long absence. Virile-looking and practical on the battlefield, beards were suited to the Civil War; Grant kept his when he entered the White House. The safety razor's invention around 1900 marked the beginning of the end for presidential facial hair. For the last 100 years, there have been very few stylistic developments of note; the most significant change of late comes with our current commander in chief, whose hair has brought welcome diversity to the presidential scalp."

See the Heads of State: Hair-Portraits of the presidents.

"We all have lofty goals: find a job we love, make a lot of money doing that job we love, start a family, retire early, so on, and so on. But let's face it... There are not too many things that are more satisfying to a guy than growing out an absolutely ridiculous mustache.

Young Men in UK Outspend Women for Beauty Products

bobbypic.jpgIn an interesting turn of events, young men in England are spending more for their beauty products each week than their female peers.

"The young British male's weekly spend on looking good has now overtaken that of the fairer sex, according to a survey carried out by sports nutrition company, Multipower. A cross-section of the country's 18 to 35 year olds were questioned about their health, fitness and beauty regimes, and it emerged that on average, men are now spending £11.72 per week on grooming products compared to their female counterparts who spend exactly one pound less."

RazorsDirect Razor Donation Program Helps Less Fortunate

One_for_one.jpgSince the beginning of 2010, RazorsDirect.com has been growing their highly successful "One-for-One Pledge" razor donation program. In turn, they have helped hundreds of underprivileged people obtain the clean, smooth shave that they so greatly deserve.

The "One-for-One Pledge" program by RazorsDirect.com donates one disposable razor to a local charity group or non-profit for every order the company receives through its online store.

"People often forget that there is a large need for grooming products--especially razors--at places like homeless shelters, clinics, and halfway houses. We receive letters of gratitude from our donation locations all the time, telling us powerful stories of hope--the huge difference our razors have made in the lives of their residents.

"It doesn't sound like much, but a clean shave can make a very large impact. A shaved face and smoothly shaved legs present a more sophisticated and qualified job applicant to employers; it also allows the confidence within that applicant to shine--companies see that and are more willing to hire that person."

Casting Call for the Unkempt Male


"Know a guy who is clueless when it comes to his hair...or are you one? Does your Dad have a comb over that he thinks looks natural, but is definitely not fooling anyone? Maybe your co-worker wears a toupee that is a different color than his normal hair, or is constantly out of place on his head. Is your husband's moustache outdated and you're ready for him to change it (or even get rid of it)? If there's a guy in your life who has a "do" that's really a "don't"...we're a national TV show and we want to hear about it! Please include your name, age, phone number and a recent photo."
