I learned more about shaving from pro barber Woody Donahue in two hours than I had in 20-plus years of begrudgingly dragging a razor across my face. Donahue, the official Schick Hydro barber, set up shop at The Carlton Hotel in New York City and gave us the full treatment via hot towel shaves at a showcase event for the new Hydro5 and Edge Shave Gel.
Schick has made a concerted effort to be the most sensitive of razor companies. So sensitive, that in the past I have mused that the Hydro5 has all the sensitivity of a toddler petting a kitten on a pillow with a rainbow in the background, while listening to Richard Marx’s hit power ballad, “Hold Onto the Nights.”
If you’re like me prior to the event, you probably have no idea how great, and how necessary a full shave from a professional is. On top of being surprisingly relaxing (considering a dude has a razor at your jugular), a hot towel treatment at the start gently opens your pores and relaxes your skin.
Nate Silver will get plenty of attention tonight with the Iowa caucuses, but this shot in the video below isn’t vry flattering.
This week, for the first time ever, Old Spice Guys Terry Crews and Isaiah Mustafa joined forces at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate their popular “Make A Smellmitment” campaign and the grand finale commercial, which debuted yesterday on ESPN “SportsCenter.”
We spoke to Terry and Isaiah about getting over fears of smellmitment, picking up hot babes and their journey to Old Spice pitchmen.
Bullz-Eye: Terry and Isaiah, I feel like I am in an Old Spice sandwich!
Isaiah Mustafa: Is that good or bad?
BE: We’ll see! So far, so good though. Are you guys sitting there with your shirts off right now? Because every time I see you on TV, you are both shirtless.
Isaiah: No, not this time.
Terry Crews: I am completely shirtless underneath my clothes right now!

This past weekend, the 6th annual National Beard and Moustache Championships, presented by the Traveler Beer Company, was held at Brooklyn’s King Theater. 300 beard and moustache groupies turned out from across the globe to compete in 18 categories.
But ONE MAN stole the show: veteran beardsman Eric Brooks donned a gigantic bird cage-style beard made entirely of the contestant’s facial hair — with a working cage door that opened up to allow him to chug an entire bottle of Illusive Traveler shandy, the National Beard and Moustache Championship sponsor product.
The Beer Cage was a nod to the above video “rumored” to have been staged in Los Angeles at The Groundlings improve stage in 1991, the same year Saddam decided to tangle with one general Norman Schwarzkopf Jr.
