Over the years, you’ve seen us talk a lot about how to groom your happy trail. However, we often still get the question, “What are the ways you recommend to remove hair from your stomach?” Fear not, dear readers! We’ve taken your inquiries to heart, and we’re ready to share some of the best, easiest, or longest-term options available when it comes to happy-trail hair. While some men like to keep hair on their stomachs, others are looking for a clean look. Both of these options warrant different hair removal solutions.

Take a seat, fellas, because we’ve got our top stomach hair removal methods right here for you. From easy at-home remedies to permanent hair removal, you’re about to learn everything you ever needed to know about the fuzz that lives near your navel.

Easiest Ways to Remove Stomach Hair

When it comes to your happy trail, you really have a lot of options. Here’s a rundown of a few of our favorite options:

Use an Electric Razor Like The Lawn Mower® 3.0

The Lawn Mower® 3.0 trimmer is the best electric razor for this type of task because it’s built for men and ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your hand. This third-generation body tool is designed with SkinSafe™ technology that will keep even those sensitive parts of your belly safe from tugs or tears that can happen with other hair-removal methods. Plus, since it’s waterproof, you can easily clean up your belly trail while you’re in the shower without wasting extra time primping yourself. 

Shave Using A Sharp Razor (After You Trim)

The best way to remove stomach hair always begins with a good trim. If you’re looking for a smoother feel, don’t stop when your trimmer’s done. At this point, you’ll want to pick up a good razor that’s designed to take care of your skin while simultaneously getting rid of those unwanted follicles. You never want to put a razor near your pelvis without trimming though; reason being, a good trimmer gets the hair ready for the razor. It makes sure the hair isn’t so long that it’ll get stuck in a razor blade’s path and ensures your skin won’t be subjected to tearing or pulling when the razor finds its way to your body.

Be careful, though. There are lots of wrong ways you can shave your body with a razor, and if you don’t adhere to best practices, you could find yourself with painful ingrown hairs that’ll let you know when you did something wrong. Here are some tips avoid ingrown hair while shaving your stomach:

Take Care Of Your Skin By Moisturizing

You need to have a moisturizing barrier between your skin and the blade that helps keep your skin hydrated. This will cushion the contact that occurs when the razor comes into contact with your skin. Shaving oils and creams are necessary when you’re actually in the process of shaving, but it’s important to keep your skin hydrated with high-quality lotions all the time, even when you’re not shaving. Bear in mind that using just soap and water when you shave can dry your skin out and cause the razor to drag on your skin and the hair you’re trying to remove. 

Exfoliating Is Essential

Proper exfoliation of the skin is an essential part of preventing ingrown hairs because it washes away dead skin cells and helps clear out the pores. Proper exfoliation also helps lift the hair away from the skin, giving the razor ample room to make a close shave that’s right on the skin. Sugar scrubs are very effective exfoliation tools that open up the hair roots and allow you to get the closest shave possible. Simply step into a hot shower and thoroughly get yourself wet from head to toe. Then, apply the sugar scrub to your skin, rubbing it up and down. Be careful not to be too harsh, as vigorous scrubbing can lead to irritation, and that’s the last thing you want if you’re going to apply a razor to your skin next.

Make Sure You And Your Tools Are Clean

Man Washing The Weed Whacker™

You probably understand that it’s important to have a clean body, which is often why people shave in the shower; it’s easy to grab a loofah and some body wash and get all the dirty, oil, and grime off your body right in one fell swoop. But, how often do you really focus on cleaning your tools? The fact of the matter is that you should be thoroughly cleaning and drying them after each use, and if they’ve been sitting around for a while between uses, you should clean them before you apply them to your skin, too, just to make sure you get any dust or dirt off of them that may have accumulated while they were laying around. After each trim or shave, run your tools under hot water to rinse out the skin cells and hair that will undoubtedly find their way into the crevices of your devices. You don’t need to use harsh detergents or soaps, especially if your upkeep is regular and you pay attention to the cleaning of your tools after every use. If you do find that there is clogged hair hanging out within your blades, immerse the razor in hot water to soften the blockage, then give it a gentle shake to get the excess hair out of its trap. 

Using a razor is about the easiest way to remove hair from your stomach, but it’s not the only option. Let’s keep diving in!

Hair Removal Cream Isn’t Only For Your Balls

Hair removal cream isn’t only for your balls; you can use it on any part of your body, including your stomach hair. If you go this route, it’s important to understand that, just like shaving, hair removal cream doesn’t remove hair from the root. Instead, it takes off the hair that’s above the skin. This process works by using chemicals to break down the hair so it easily comes right off your skin. 

Check out all of our tips for avoiding ingrown hairs on your stomach by checking out our guide to avoiding ingrown hairs on your stomach. We offer a plethora of tips, tricks, and tidbits to help you get the job done right.

Removing Stomach Hair Naturally at Home

If you want to naturally remove hair from your stomach, you have options here, too.

Sugar Waxing Hurts, But Its Effective

Here’s what you need to know about sugar waxing: it hurts, but it’s effective. If you’re willing to deal with the pain, this sugar waxing can be a great way to get rid of unwanted stomach hair. Similar to hot wax methods, sugaring gets rid of body hair by quickly pulling it straight out of the root. Sugaring involves a paste that’s made of lemon, water, and sugar that are all heated together until they reach a candy-like consistency. We invite you to learn more about sugaring before you commit to the process.

Check Your Spice Cabinet

Did you know that turmeric and papaya will help remove hair naturally? According to some research, the enzymes and active ingredients in these two kitchen items have been shown to slow hair growth and lighten it at the same time. While neither of these is an overnight solution, both can offer you natural ways to rid yourself of unwanted belly hair in time. 

Get Stoned

Get a pumice stone, that is. In addition to getting rid of dead skin cells, pumice can also help remove unwanted hair. Lather your skin with a moisturizing body wash and apply the pumice stone directly to your skin. Rub it in a circular motion on your stomach with a gentle pressure so it can grab the hairs you want to remove.

How to Remove Stomach Hair Permanently

If you want to permanently get rid of stomach hair, you’ll need to invest a little money into the process.

Find A Laser Hair Removal Expert Near Your

Start by finding a laser hair removal expert near you who has a solid reputation for delivering outstanding finished products. You should explore the risks of laser hair removal before you make an appointment to be sure you know what you’re getting into. Ultimately, it’s a great option for the right candidate, as it can effectively delay hair growth for long periods of time, but you’ll want to be sure you have a consultation with your hair removal professional to ensure your skin and hair type are eligible for a successful procedure. 

Electrolysis Will Stop Hair Growth

You might also want to explore electrolysis. Generally speaking, electrolysis is available for people with nearly any skin type, skin color, hair type, or hair color and can be used on any part of the body, including your happy trail. Electrolysis is performed by the technician sticking a problem into your hair follicles and sending an electric current through the device.

How to wear your watch correctly

Published

on

As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)

Published

on

We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.

Overcoats

man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.

Sweaters

man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

The Best Zara Fragrances

Published

on

We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
