Seventy nine percent of males still use holiday gifts they received in the past (seven years ago) according to a new survey from Braun, a leader in German engineering and high quality design since 1950. Looking for holiday shopping/grooming insight for upcoming articles?
The Braun holiday survey also revealed:
· Most (51 percent) men surveyed shave five to seven times per week
· Fifty-eight percent of men have received an electric shaver as a gift in the past
· Most (34 percent) men expect an electric shaver to last only three to four years
- Sixty-seven percent of respondents believe a smooth shave is likely to be the most popular facial hair style seven years from now, followed by the moustache (16 percent), goatee (16) and mutton chops (1 percent)
· Seventy-two percent of consumers are shopping for two to five men this holiday season
- Forty-three percent of respondents believe their father is the hardest male to shop for during the holidays, followed by friends (30 percent), brothers (19 percent) and grandfathers (8 percent)
To address the need for longer lasting gifts for males this holiday season, Braun offers Series 7. While most shavers last only a few years, Braun Series 7 is engineered to last seven, with dedicated teams of engineers and scientists putting Series 7 through more than 50 quality tests to simulate a five minute shave, seven days a week, for seven years. At the touch of a button, Braun’s Clean & Renewä innovation cleans, charges, lubricates and dries the shaver to maintain optimal cutting performance, while its features, including the Personalization Modes and OptiFoil™, help men to achieve Braun’s closest shave ever.
Sometimes, I lose faith in the internet. The endless dating sites, “Make $5,000 a week from home” schemes and of course “Get Ripped Abs In Five Minutes” pop-ups can really get a guy down.
But every once in a while, my faith is restored. Check out this headline and ensuing article- “Mustache transplants on the rise in the Middle East.”
Of all the places on earth, who would think there would be a market for this over there? Doesn’t every guy (and most women) over their have fantastic facial hair?
How emasculating if you didn’t, hence the need.
The legend of New York Knick Anthony Mason’s array of hair cuts must never die. Hair graphics have grown in popularity over the last few years, but in terms of the NBA “Mase” set a trend that has been replicated ever since. Players like Daniel Gibson and Andray Blatche have tried to mimic Mason, but nothing is better than the original.
Sadly, when researching images for this article, it appears many people have already forgotten how cool Mason was, as there are very few pics of his various haircuts and sayings carved into his head.
Do the future a solid and tell a child about Anthony Mason’s legacy today. If you don’t, the only thing we may have left comes from the Beastie Boys classic “B-Boys Makin’ With The Freak Freak”.
“Got my hair cut correct like Anthony Mason.”
Going on a first date with a chick can be nerve racking, especially when the first date materializes on a whim at the prompting of your prospective lady, out of the blue. You’re not going to say no because your schedule is a little tight, are you? Shit no you’re not. You’ve been working this angle for some time now and the time is right.
So, after several sets of push-ups over a limited span of time to pump up my upper body prior to our meeting, I needed something else to really put me over the top; a secret weapon if you will. And I don’t mean an Ed Hardy shirt.
It was at this moment that I unsheathed my potential partner in grime: Speed Stick Power.
When tension rose like a cresting wave at high tide, then crashed upon the shore penetrating the sandy coast and punishing it into submission, I was dry.
So what’s the deal with Aaron Rodgers sweet “lady tickler”, you ask? The QB as well as other members of the Packers are rocking the “Stache” this month to support and raise awareness of men’s health issues like prostate cancer and testicular cancer, similarly to how October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Take care of your man business, and your man business will take care of you.
