A few tips from our favorite local hair stylist Mark Schexnayder on how to keep your beard fresh. 1. Use the right products. Mark suggests Dollar Shave Club for men who groom their beards regularly. Their packages range from around $6-$12. 2. Wash your beard as often as you wash your hair (or more). Use a small amount of shampoo and conditioner on it and comb through. It will keep it clean and smelling fresh, as we know food drops in there more often than you'd like to admit.
Last week we went behind the scenes for Lulu's "Most Stylish Men in NYC" photo shoot. While each guy had hashtags of their own, we were swooning over the Lulu's hand-picked #HopelessRomantics and #CaptainKennedys. Putting the power in women's hands, the app has revolutionized the way ladies in New York City are dating, assigning ratings and clever hashtags to the gaggle of men they now hold the power to judge. While chatting up with the guys at the shoot, none of them seemed
Not all men can pull off long locks, but for those who don their hair longer than the girls they sleep with, we thank you. The new wave of Metro has reached a peak in the grooming department and I don't know many girls that are complaining. This, however, does leave men to their own devices to step up their game and prove they can handle the challenege that is long hair. It needs to look effortless, but of course that requires effort. Here are our few favorite looks and the e
A few years back my friend set me up on a blind date so she could go out with the guy's friend. We met up at the Santa Monica Pier on a particularly chilly summer night. My friend sees her love match and I see a very short guy next to him. Now, I have no problem going out with someone shorter than me. At 5’9", I’m used to guys being shorter than me, but this guy was barely 5’4". My date for the night was obviously put off by the height difference as well because as we were wa
I knew I needed to get out more, but I was cheap, so the idea of ponying up $49.99 to Match.com filled me with nausea. I had tried it three times previously: men from California inquired if I wanted a long distance relationship, mysterious men who wouldn't give their real name baited queries and became very coy when I asked for details about who they actually were. I'd send a picture of myself and my match wouldn't reply. I often told these men that cell phone pictures weren'
Specific details have been omitted to protect the innocent (pssshhhhhh whatever). His picture wasn’t that clear on OKCupid. Before I left my Silver Lake apartment to venture Eastward, I took one more quick scroll through his posted photos on the matchmaking website. There was something about him that I found attractive, otherwise we wouldn’t have been talking. But most of his snapshots were all “artsy,” as in distorted. Lots of sunbeams cascading around his semi-nude, sinewy
I had a crush on a girl I worked with at a theatre. She was 23; I’m 30. One of the things that drew me to her at first, besides being beautiful, is that she is a total Star Wars nerd. I found every excuse to go and talk to her at work. Though I noticed she was a bit shy, I would often talk about Star Wars just to break the ice. I found out she lived near me; I could walk to her house from mine. I feel like that’s super important with dating in LA - proximity. One night I was
