We don’t hear about men’s hairstyles nearly as much as we hear about women’s, but men have struggled to find a style to fit their lives since we became self-aware. Over the past several decades, men have made all manner of hairstyles popular, for good or ill. Lucky Tiger has fifteen examples, but these are just a few of our favorites.
The Pompadour (1950s)
A trademark of the rockabilly subculture that embraced rock and roll and fast cars in the 1950s, the Pompadour hairstyle for men continues to reign supreme among models, A-List celebrities and advocates of modern fashion. The most notable Pompadour-wearers of all time include Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra, although contemporary actor Emile Hirsch sports the style with elegance.
The Afro (1960s-70s)
Made popular in the 1960s and 1970s by celebrities Cicely Tyson and Jimi Hendrix, the Afro is perhaps the most imitated trendy hairstyle in pop culture history. The Afro needs no explanation, for everyone knows what it is, but the best Afros require the same length of tightly curled, coarse and thick hair all around the head.
The Mullet (1970s-80s)
Football players, pop stars and TV stars everywhere supported the Mullet in the early 1980s, a style that was short in the front and sides, and long in the back. Many considered the Mullet a good thing to have when applying for a job in the 80s, but today, the brutally outdated hairstyle is more or less an open invitation towards public ridicule. Despite enduring public outcries against the Mullet, however, Duane “Dog” Chapman from A&E’s Dog The Bounty Hunter still finds the style attractive.
Finding the right cologne for you is always a great feeling. It’s like a breakthrough. You’ve searched and searched and nothing felt quite right and then you hit that scent that makes you feel like you. If you haven’t tried it, you might want to consider the Adidas “Moves Pulse” fragrance for men.
Bullz-Eye recently had a chance to review the fragrance from Adidas, and came away impressed with both the packaging and the scent. The reviewer had this to say:
I have been wearing “Moves Pulse” for quite a few days now and I must say it has a scent that isn’t overpowering but more of an easy confidence for those who strive to be their best. I feel Adidas has produced a men’s fragrance in “Moves Pulse” that fits those men who live a modern and fast paced lifestyle where fitness and health is a top priority. If you decide to go with “Moves Pulse” you won’t have to break the bank to feel and smell your best.

Everyone loves the feeling of a great pair of socks, but they can be hard to find. Most department stores only carry your standard Hanes or Gold Toe variety footwear, but if you’re willing to do some searching you might be surprised what you can find.
Bullz-Eye recently reviewed Zkano socks, which are made from organic cotton. The reviewer had this to say:
I use the Zkano socks for everyday wear and for sports such as basketball and tennis and they are top notch and I must say that knowing a family business down in Alabama is producing these socks are an extra thumbs up. The styles I have are the Venture, Stride, and my favorite, the Tempo which are designed to provide comfort, extra breathability and a deep pocketed heel just to name a few features.
You can find the full Zkano review at the Bullz-Eye blog. Keep them in mind when you’re in the market for some extra-comfortable socks.

Shopping for nature health/body care products can be a harrowing experience. You never know if the products actually work, if they can fill the void of your less natural shaving creams, shampoos, and soaps. How do they smell? How long will that deodorant last? Will they leave me feeling fresh and ready for the day or greasy with too many oils?
Lucky for you, Bullz-Eye recently got to review Rocky Mountain Soap’s line of products, which are all natural and deliver on all accounts. Check out what the review had to say about the Body Wash and the Deodorant:
Next I tried the Men’s Body Wash, which has a guys scent for certain, and helped wake me up with the clary sage oil, coconut oil, and lemon essential oil. Together the make up of the men’s body wash left me feeling clean and refreshed to go out and tackle the world! I’m feeling good at this time and decided to make a RockyMountainSoap day so I applied the Men’s Stuff Deodorant, which also gets to the point and flat out works. The Deodorant is made of natural crystal and had me feeling dry, confident and odor free all day long!
Exactly what you need to know before purchasing. For the full review of the Rocky Mountain Soap line of products, head over to the Bullz-Eye blog.
A recent article at Men’s Health discusses the kind of food that will keep your hair healthy. The article goes one further than just food, though, and offers the precise breakdown on the nutrients in that food that make it so good for you and your hair. Here’s what it says about protein:
You know you need adequate protein to build muscle—and you also need it for healthy hair because hair is made primarily of protein. Low-quality protein can lead to weak, brittle hair or a loss of hair color—but chances are, if you’re trying to add or maintain muscle, you already eat enough.
The article has a full breakdown to make sure you’re getting a wide range of nutrients to keep you looking good.
Of all the concerts this summer, none could be hotter than Jay-Z and Eminem pairing up for the “Home and Home Tour” in the artists’ respective hometowns. To celebrate two of the greatest living rappers performing side by side, 1800 Tequila has put together two cocktails to sip in honor of this historic hip-hop milestone.
The Bullz-Eye Blog has the full recipes. While you kick back with a cold one, take a look at the careers these two legendary artists made for themselves.
EMINEM has sold more than 80,000,000 albums worldwide and won 11 Grammy Awards and an Academy Award. After 1999′s quintuple platinum The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP (2000) and The Eminem Show (2002) became two of the Top 5 best selling albums of the 2000s, with approximately 10,000,000 copies of each sold in the U.S. alone. 2004′s Grammy-nominated Encore reached #1 and was certified quadruple platinum. The #1, double platinum, 2005 greatest hits collection Curtain Call: The Hits and #2, platinum, 2006 various artists compilation Eminem Presents: The Re-Up followed. 2009′s Relapse, the #1-charting winner of the Best Rap Album Grammy was, at nearly double platinum, the best selling rap album of the year. “Not Afraid,” the first single off his upcoming Recovery album, was released two weeks ago and soared to #1 on the iTunes chart, and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
JAY-Z is currently touring stadiums, arenas and festivals around the world in support of his latest #1 album, 2009′s Blueprint 3 (Roc Nation). Since 1996, 10-time Grammy award winner, Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter has dominated the rap industry and set trends for a generation. Now in 2010, he personifies the “American Dream.” Founder and chairman of Rocawear, he is also co-owner of the NJ Nets, 40/40 sportsclubs, Translation Advertising and Carol’s Daughter skin line, as well involved in a partnership with Iconix Brand Group. After three successful years as President and CEO of Def Jam Recordings, where he fostered the careers of international stars Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Kanye West, JAY-Z entered into a partnership with Live Nation to form Roc Nation. Through Roc Nation, JAY-Z released the Blueprint 3, his 11th #1 album, putting him ahead of Elvis for most #1 albums by any solo artist. He continues his philanthropic work through his Water For Live initiative and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

That’s right, we’re calling this the “Menaissance.” It’s the return to manly days of old, when men had places to go and just be men. The “Menaissance” continues with old school barbershops opening across the U.S. and Canada, as reported by the Toronto Star. My question is : Why did it take so long?
The Monsieur Barber Shop in Toronto is the place guys can get a quality haircut, get a drink and watch a football game while shooting the breeze with others in this men’s only barbershop. You see, men can take care of themselves without softenining their image as a hot lather shave is attractive from the board room to the assembly line! Next time we’re in Toronto we hope to visit the Monsieur Barber Shop and Spa at 415 Bloor St. W.
Bullz-Eye had the chance to review another of Rockport’s offering of dress shoes, this time the Wispen. Rockport has made a name for itself by making dress shoes that look good and feel great, and the Wispen is no exception. The shoes take advantage of Rockport’s best design combined with the adidas adiPRENE technology to produce a shoe that’s as stylish as it is comfortable.
The Wispen is straight to the point in its styling as its clean design is elegant and the full grain leather is easy to clean. These Rockports incorportate EVA adidas adiPRENE, which is a highly shock-absorbent cushioning that protects the heel at impact. They are among the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.
