Do you think men’s beauty products have come a long way? Examples?

Well, yes. 20 or 30 years ago, men weren’t really using moisturizers and eye creams and all of that. Today there are so many products on the market geared specifically for men, it’s crazy. In general men are just more knowledgable about, and open to, using “beauty” products. It’s easier to research products on our own and the products are easier to buy, even if we don’t want to make our purchase in a brick-and-mortar store.

I think this is driven by the fact that people are taking better care of themselves in general and we all live in a world in which our age doesn’t necessarily define us anymore.

Any recommendations for thinning hair?

Use products that help maintain a healthy scalp while helping to clear debris from the hair follicles themselves, like Bosley Pro. Also, wash you hair after working up a sweat. More sweat can lead to more sebaceous oils in the follicles and to an increase in D.H.T., a cause of thinning.

Great tip! Wash hair post-workout to slow thinning process.

Ever make a man beauty faux pas?

Yes. I once wore so much cologne to an event, many years ago, that I was gagging. I could smell myself the whole time. Just gross.

Cologne, yes or no? Reccs?

Brings back my youthful memories of my days behind the fragrance counter at Saks Fifth Avenue/NY. Cologne is fine, just don’t over do it (see above). Tip: Spray the cologne in front of you and walk through it. Should be enough. Personally, I like the old hippy Nag Champa or Patchouli oils, myself.

Nag Champa Oils – an earthy choice for fragrance.

What does beauty mean to you?

I think beauty is all about being respectfully and completely comfortable in your own skin, wherever and whoever you are.

Thank you, Dev! Be sure to share these manly tips with the men in your life!

See you next Monday!

 What is your favorite hair product for men?

Bumble and bumble’s Grooming Creme. It gives the right amount of weight with a satin finish, memory and provides a more lived in look.  I also love DrySpun Finish. It’s instant gratification for fullness and body.

Grooming Creme – we’re game.

 What can men do if they have thinning issues?

Use the new Full Potential System from Bumble and bumble to keep your strands fuller, stronger and stay with you longer.

What is your out the door routine? Favorite products? Hair or otherwise?

Lately I have been using Tonic Lotion and Don’t Blow It. The tonic has an old school barber shop feel (peppermint and tea tree) and is a great way to re-style existing looks and is a great primer. Don’t Blow It is perfect for the minimalist on the go. It gives body, fights frizz and has no product feel at all while somehow achieving that effortless look.

Smells like peppermint and tea tree oil. Sigh.

Cologne, yes or no? Reccs?

Yes. I wear Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford.


What does beauty mean to you?

Finding your own style and owning it. Beauty to me is confidence and not playing it safe.

Thank you, Michael! I hope you found today’s Manly  Monday inspiring. Stay tuned, more manliness coming your way soon!
