The Man and His Beauty
Good looking is contagious. Its alluring, its engaging, its infectious, and a nearly billion dollar industry. In mainstream media, we are inundated with products and services, geared towards women, on how to improve, enhance, and maintain our womanly woos. Throughout an episode of your favorite television show, there are numerous images of beauty, typically women. For men, the advertisements are generally a bit a soap, water, or beer. Eh, that leaves a lot of room for improvement. Because my love for man runs deep, I want to fill in the blanks with a few suggestions that advertisers failed to share.
1. Basic grooming is all well and good, but let's add a bit of up to date scents to that hint of Dial soap. Please ditch the Obsession, Cool Water, and the rest of the aromas from the 90s. Those hadn't been cool since Fubu.
2. Less is more in the hair department. I know men are funny about shaving and think it's a girly activity, but men, we aren't the least bit turned on by the original tresses on head (locs excluded), armpits or pubes. Please trim. It's neater and cleaner.
3. Speaking of hair. Sigh. I know the 70s had strong images of men, but the only man and I mean the only man who can sport a thick mustache is Steve Harvey. The rest of you, trim it - and NOT pencil thin either. Consult Ice Cube, he has the facial hair presentation down to a perfect science.
4. Pull your pants up. If I need to explain further, my fees are $125 hour with a 2 hour minimum.
5. Smile a natural smile. White teeth, no golds, no diamonds, no mother of pearl, no cracks and no snags.
Ladies, what other industry gaps are prevalent? Let our guys know. Caring is sharing.
Thank us later.
