Hipster Beard Transplants

Hipster beard transplants are the subject of one of the most interesting things I have read this week. Why is it that we love them so much? Does it make a guy instantly cool? Do girls swoon over them so much that we forget just how itchy/scratchy/scruffy they can become. Seriously, it has the ability to irritate a girl’s face, but yet we’re willing to take that because of how good it looks? Yes.

Men are desiring this look so much that they are ready to shove out $3,000-$7,000 to gain a little more facial hair and to become a little more hip.

Let’s get to the science of things. How does one acquire a hipster beard via transplant?

The doctor takes hair from the patient’s head, then implants it using micro-incisions on the face. This is done under local anesthesia and takes about eight hours. If the man is balding and would rather preserve what little hair he has left, this process can also use chest hair.

Once the hair is implanted, it will fall out. But, the idea is that the root remains in the man’s face and continues to grow into a full beard.

Poquito Wood Wallet

I can imagine that one of the best things about being a guy is having a pretty minimalistic lifestyle. A wallet like this for women would never suffice (as much as we would want to believe we could make it work.) but it’s perfect for just about every guy I know and for that I am infinitely envious. There are plenty of wallets out right now made out of wood and are as slim as this one, but this specific one looks really really good. To learn more and to make a purchase, click here.

Kendrick Lamar for GQ

I’ve been told by several people that Kendrick Lamar is one rapper that I need to see in concert. Luckily, Bumbershoot gave me that opportunity this past summer and while I don’t typically listen to Kendrick’s material, I remember once upon a time when I battled another university in Seattle to book him for a music festival. At the time he was very up-and-coming and today’s he’s on the cover of GQ. These days, I’m listening to a different genre of music, but I was very impressed with the way that he commands a crowd. I’ve never seen such rowdy fans, but I suppose that just means he’s doing his job. Also, he cleans up nicely.

Just In Time For Movember

I’m really happy with the blogs I try to read daily for inspiration on Yow Yow! As girly as Yow Yow! can get sometimes, I really enjoy having our dose of guy posts as well especially from Cool Material. They recently wrote a post for this product this week called Soft Goat which consists of three pads to soften and tone down the harshness of your facial hair. The hypoallergenic pad will round out the edges of your stubble without doing any harm to the skin underneath. Is this not perfect for Movember? Guys, consider your girls here. Get the Soft Goat.

PubCakes

I don’t have too many guy friends who will admit that they love dessert as much as women do. Really, when’s the last time you heard your guy order a Crème Brûlée without asking if you wanted dessert first? Exactly. Guys love dessert, but don’t feel like they can open up about it unless maybe it’s a masculine dessert. Cool Material is one of my favorite blogs for guys because it always provides me with a little bit of extra insight into what guys may be looking for in terms of food and products. I once favorited their post on a list of desserts just for men and now I wanted to share this one with you about a dessert product called PubCakes.

PubCakes is a set of dry cake mixes designed with specially made craft beer including Chocolate Stout, Belgian Spice, Cocoa Porter, and Vanilla Ale. YUM! Girls can have a bite of these cupcakes too, right?

Urinal w/ Built-In Sink

Designed by Kaspars Jursons, the “Tandem” is a combination of a urinal with a built-in sink to give guys a little reminder to wash off before leaving the bathroom. Apparently the only way for the toilet to flush itself is if you wash your hands up top. Quite the concept! And…convenient, right? Do we think this would work in a public restroom though? Doobybrain suggests that this idea may not be the best as the flushing might spray onto the actual faucet…which is GROSS.

This or That: Men in Florals?

photo cred | The Fader

It wasn’t too long ago that Kevin brought home a floral skinny tie from J. Crew and I had to question it. Can guys really pull off the floral look like women can? As much as it is a change that we might have to adapt to, I think the floral can really soften a guy’s look in a good way. It’s refreshing and at the same time, completely appropriate for the summer season. It’s an accessory that I can see donned at a wedding this summer and hopefully maybe I’ll catch a few of them! What do you guys think? Do you love it or hate it?

A Collection Part 36

Without even noticing, every “A Collection” post has some sort of a theme. I always enjoy going back and looking at the different sets asking myself what the common theme was. What was I feeling that day? Why did I select this photo, that photo, and this series of photos? I started writing this about a fourth into completing this post and I noticed that all of the photographs are pretty simplistic, but also muted. There are times when I won’t remember why there is a theme, but I think this completely embodies how I’m feeling right now. Somewhat muted, but it’s a refreshing time right now because there is so much that is unknown. Also – Seattle has the hottest weather in all of the country right now, which is incredible and NEVER happens. Funny, because you would think that these photos would be much brighter to resemble that, but they are not. Surprise!

My Whiskey

Men and their alcohol. It’s a love that many women don’t understand, but at the same time – we do. And that’s okay, because we’ll let them have their thing and that will just be it. Cool Material introduced me to something very intriguing today called “My Whiskey.” Basically it allows a Whiskey lover to create their very own customized whiskey from the  “grain bill, the yeast, the barrel, the age, the proof, and the name of your very own whiskey.” It will be 80 proof and will equate to about 160 bottles ($38 a bottle) so you better make it a good one! Basically, you will be set for life. So to whom do you owe all of this goodness to? None other than the Mississippi River Distilling Company.
