Not too long ago, around the 80'-90', having a long beard, even a short one, seemed to indicate you were financially and even socially lacking.
But that notion has significantly changed in recent years, according to research by Neave and Shields (2008) on the effects of facial hair on women's perceptions of men's attractiveness, masculinity, and dominance; and also according to research by Dixson and Brooks (2013) which used similar procedures and recorded judgments by both men and women on the faces of men with varying degrees of facial hair.
Well, unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of men worldwide are simply unaware of the importance and I daresay power of a good outfit. Most of them say they don’t care about fashion. Some will, however, admit that they do understand the advantages of looking good (i.e. The Beauty Premium) but they simply don’t know how and what they can\need\should do about it.
This is the very heart of the answer to this question as it leads to the fact that most men shop (if they shop for themselves at all, that is) with little or no sartorial knowledge or understanding.
Statistics show that by the age of 35, around 66 percent of men lose a considerable amount of hair, and by 55, 85 percent of men have significant hair loss...by which I mean bald or balding. I'm really sorry, but that means there's a giant chance you're either going to go completely bald, or at least partially.
Let's be clear: There’s no shame in hair loss. A lot of us choose to embrace it, rather than trying to regrow it. Even if you do take the measures to grow it back, it’s unlikely you’ll ever have your 18-year-old hairline again.
Bohemian Rhapsody, the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, sounds like a strange animal, if for no other reason than it's being helmed by director Bryan Singer, whose signature X-Men films have been, well, hit-or-miss. So what he does with a biopic, a genre prone to both huge flops and smashing success, should be...interesting.
But one clean-cut exciting thing was the news that Rami Malek would play Freddie Mercury.
It's hard enough to rock a mustache properly, even for someone as stylish as Malek, and though he's a breakout star on Mr. Robot, it'll be a big gear-cha...
Sporting facial hair in the office is commonplace. But now it’s more and more acceptable to have a long, unruly beard… within reason. Guys like Jason Momoa are living proof that even a scraggly beard can look sharp.
But how do you pull it off?
What’s the difference between Momoa’s beard, and one that just looks lazy and untended to? Well, it’s the tending to that makes all the difference. The best-looking and healthiest long beards are nourished and trimmed along the way.

Here’s how, according to barber Eli Shaffer of Blin...
Nothing like good friends me good food to top off the long, busy, arduous week. This is especially true if you have kids who are the same age as it makes grown up conversation doable :)
So I called up my good friend Yaron and invited ourselves over for dinner. A few glasses of wine, copious amount of bread and my favorite: egg salad. Yummi.
But you can't just show up to someone's house dressed as if you're going to work, or with a motley assortment of clothes you snatched from your closet (or from the weekly pile of clothes accumulated on the study's chair).
