When you were younger, you got your first chest hair and celebrated. Well, maybe the hair that really excited you was on a different part of your body. Regardless, the younger you really misjudged how much fun certain aspects of adulthood would be. The truth is that managing body hair is a modern necessity, and it’s not exactly the best part of the day. Worse yet, the list of hairs you need to handle continues to grow. Well, if you haven’t yet, today is the day you add nose hair to your list. Here’s why.

Consider Your Love Life

It’s pretty simple when you think about it. Are you attracted to anyone’s nostril hairs? Have you ever been? If no, then why should anyone be attracted to yours? That’s just weird.

We’ve done our own surveys on this topic, and they all come to the same inevitable conclusion. 79% of partners agree long ear or nose hair is unattractive. If you have a bush of wiry snot hairs sticking out of your nose, it’s going to impact your love life. Trimming your nose hairs eliminates this issue pretty easily.

But, it actually runs much deeper than aesthetics. Nose hairs impact your life in a number of ways. We’re going to go through the most important of them in a moment. While we take this journey, think about how each issue is likely to impact your love life. Whether it hits your self-confidence or makes you look attractive, you’ll be able to understand how nose hair is hurting your love life on multiple fronts.

As for those of you who are in a happy, loving relationship where nose hair will never be a deal-breaker, congratulations. That’s great and all, but you still need to know the rest of this.

It’s About Comfort

In a lot of ways, body hair impacts comfort. We discuss this all the time when we bring up manscaping. One of the leading reasons to trim your pubes is to reduce the itch and tug you experience every day. It really is a game-changer.

Nose hair has a similar impact on your face. That stuff is wiry and obnoxious. It also only grows longer as you age. At some point, you’ll find it poking the insides of your nostrils. It will irritate your nose and cause discomfort.

It can also make you feel like you have something in your nose that shouldn’t be there. You’ll find yourself wiping and scratching at your nose all day. Remember what we said about how these other issues impact your love life? How smooth do you think your game is when you’re constantly rubbing or brushing your nose? They’ll either think that you’re gross or that you have an obvious addiction to some unmentionable substances. Those are both losing prospects.

So, when you trim your nose hair, you increase your general comfort. You don’t have to fight with your nose, and you feel better throughout the day. It’s a positive reinforcement loop that leads to a genuine increase in your quality of life.

Cleanliness Matter Too

Some of you know this, but we’ll make sure everyone is on the same page. Your nose hairs exist for a reason. They help filter the air you breathe to keep large particles from getting into your sinuses. That’s important, and it’s part of the reason we’re talking about trimming your hairs instead of permanently removing them (more on that in a bit).

Unfortunately, long nose hairs aren’t necessarily perfect at this job. They might keep things out of your sinuses, but they can trap stuff in your nostrils. That’s still a problem. You don’t want a hairy bush of nose fluff covered in dirt and boogers. Just reading that made you scrunch your face in disgust. Imagine how other people react when that’s what they see in your nose.

Trimming the long hairs removes the debris issue without completely eliminating your nose hairs and their biological benefits. It’s a best of both worlds kind of scenario.

There’s another issue of cleanliness. Those things that get stuck in your nostrils can affect you too. In fact, they tend to trap smells in your nose. You’ll either be smelling that stink incessantly (You’ve smelled your own boogers before. Don’t lie.), or you’ll go nose blind to it. Neither is a good scenario.

Ingrown Nose Hairs Exist

Full disclosure: ingrown nose hairs are not super common. That said, they do exist, and they are exactly as awful as you’re imagining. Trimming is the tidy, preventative solution to that problem.

Trimming Is Better Than Other Grooming Options

The ultimate reason to trim your nose hairs is because the other options aren’t good. Technically, you can remove nose hair with any tools or techniques you use on any other part of your body. We don’t want to be liable for a handful of you taking this as a challenge, so we’re only going to discuss the most common types of nose hair removal and why they suck.

Plucking

Nose hairs are an OG case for plucking. You get some tweezers and take care of the long hairs as you see them. It doesn’t take that long. Tweezers are cheap. Plucked hairs take a long time to regrow. Why wouldn’t you do it this way?

Well, the inside of your nose is pretty sensitive. Would you pluck hair from your upper thigh? No? Your nostrils are more sensitive. They’re part of the whole smelling mechanism of your body, and that requires high sensitivity. When you pluck, you damage the skin in there. It doesn’t rebound as quickly and easily as more exposed skin. Because of that, you get inflammation in your nostrils. That can lead to minor swelling in the nose which can impact your ability to breathe and smell. It is also the opposite of a sexy look.

Plucking also increases the risk of ingrown hairs. They’re only uncommon because too many people don’t groom their nose hairs. If you start plucking, you’ll become part of a growing statistic in no time.

Waxing

By now, there’s a good chance you’ve seen some viral videos of people waxing their noses. Pandemic lockdowns were weird for everyone. There’s no need to judge.

What those videos might have taught you is that waxing your nose is painful. What they might not have taught you is that it takes the downsides of plucking and multiplies them by hot wax. You still irritate and inflame your nose. You still get blood as a result.

Waxing does have two advantages over plucking that are worth mentioning. Hot wax is usually cleaner than lukewarm tweezers, so the risk of infection is reduced. It isn’t eliminated, but it’s reduced. The other advantage is that waxed hair is less likely to become ingrown than plucked hair. It still can happen, but the wax actually enlarges the follicle and pores before removing the hair which moderately lowers the chance of the new hair being ingrown.

Just Use The Weed Whacker

At this point, you understand the value of grooming your nose. You also have some insight as to why you want to trim. You still have options about how to go about trimming. For the most part, you can use scissors or an electric trimmer. The Weed Whacker is an impressive nose and ear hair trimmer. Here are a few reasons why it should be your top pick.

Safety

The Weed Whacker has proprietary safety technology that protects you from nicks and cuts. You do not have to approach nose trimming with the care and dexterity of a surgeon. In fact, you can be fairly clumsy and you’ll be fine.

The blade head rotates in every direction, and it’s powered by a 7,000 RPM motor. This makes it easy to trim your nose hairs, and it reduces issues that are caused by lesser automated blades. The risks of tugging and tearing hairs are minimized, so you get a safe, pleasant, and fast experience.

Convenience

The Weed Whacker is designed to help you trim your nose. Part of that design is overcoming your lack of motivation. It’s wireless, so you can trim wherever you find the process convenient. If you want to trim in bed, you can. You shouldn’t, but you can. 

The trimmer is also water resistant and shock resistant. You can use it in the shower or other places in the bathroom, and you don’t have to worry about babying it. It has a fast charger that is interchangeable with The Lawn Mower 3.0, so even keeping the battery juiced is easy.

Speaking of batteries, this one lasts for 90 minutes of continual use. Considering you only need a few minutes per male grooming session, you won’t have to charge this tool very often.

You Already Groom Your Body

The last reason to use The Weed Whacker is trust. You’re already using MANSCAPED products to take care of the rest of your body. Don’t you want that same quality of tool for your nose? You can work nasal grooming into the rest of your routine pretty easily. Most guys only need to trim about once a month. Even if you’re ahead of the curve, trimming every week or so won’t be demanding when you take advantage of our full line of tools.

Now that you’re converted, you’re ready to live a better life. You can get the best nose hair trimmer and add it to your regular routine. You’ll look and feel better, and you deserve to have the best tool for the job.

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?

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.
