Let "The Illusion" Explain The Fine Art Of The Bowl Cut
"We're not gonna sweat it, dude. Cause it's a bowl cut."

You know that recurring “Saturday Night Live” skit “The Californians”? It’s one of my faves. This YouTube video of a man — who refers to himself as “The Illusion” — giving himself a sweet bowl cut seems to have jumped right out of that world. “The Illusion” lives in Malibu, California (natch) — “somewhere on spaceship Earth” — and enjoys three things: 1) A sweet bowl cut, 2) hot rock jams, as evidenced by the music playing in the background as he gives himself a haircut, and 3) referring to himself in the third person.

Anyway, I’ve watched “The Illusion”‘s instructional video more than a few times, and have culled the following tips on giving yourself his signature look… Keep reading »

“Men With Fancy Lady Hair” Is Pretty Much The Best Thing Ever

Writer Jessica Saia thought it was really unfair that women get to style their long locks into all manner of complicated buns, braids, and updos, while long-haired men “spend years getting their manes all long and for what? To be occasionally bundled into a low ponytail?” To remedy this injustice, she brought 8 men to a swanky hair salon to get “fancy lady hair” and the results are amazing. Check out a few more examples after the jump, and see the whole group of well-tressed men over at Bold Italic Keep reading »

what to do if you hate the way your partner dresses

You hate the way the dude or lady you’re seeing dresses. Why the orange tie with the brown shirt and the “wacky” jacket? Why the blue pants with a purple-striped windbreaker? Why so much glitter? What do you do? Well, I’d first advise you do nothing. As in, keep your mouth shut and just enjoy them for their other sparkling qualities: their smile, their wit, the way they sex you all night long. But if you are unable to let their ugly T-shirt collection go, well, let me give you some advice.

I am lucky, because my boyfriend is a hair model. Just kidding! I’m lucky, because my boyfriend works for a major men’s clothing brand and is always dressed like he just came from a 1920s garden party (which okay, is a little weird). But I’ve dated plenty of dudes whose entire wardrobes should have been fire-bombed. Like, for real.

There’s a right and a wrong way to go about trying to tweak your partner’s style. Again, I’d advise that you use kid gloves when it comes to this stuff because even the dude you think puts zero thought into his jorts and Dr. Who shirt ensemble can get mighty upset when his aesthetics are questioned. But if you must…

Dad Jeans Are Making A Comeback, You Didn’t Know They’d Ever Disappeared

dad jeans trend piece

Most of us who have dads are probably familiar with the concept of dad jeans, those super cool, light-washed, high-waisted jeans dads love to buy at JC Penney’s. My dad loves some Dad Jeans — his favorite varietal is a gently faded black jean that goes great with his plaid shirt of choice and an anonymous black shoe. And then there’s Dad Jeans in popular culture: Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Taylor from “Home Improvement” (worn with smug smile), or Louis C.K., an actual dad who is also a nerdy, funny, middle-aged man.

Suddenly, Dad Jeans Are A Thing, a thing worth writing about in the New York Times Style section. The renewed interest in Dad Jeans is probably attributable to one thing — the ever-snarling Ouroboros that is fashion. It’s so uncool, say Dad Jeans advocates, that it is suddenly Coolness Ground Zero and how could you ever not want to wear Dad Jeans, you cool-as-fuck hipster? Keep reading »
