URSA Skin Care For Men, Live Major

by Accidental Bear

As a pretty typical gay-homosexual I like to have good skin. Even coming from the beardy point of view, your cheeks and neck are still out there for the world to see and judge. As boy I would lather my mothers flowery, brightly colored products all over my face and practice french kissing my hand. Even at a young age, I knew the smell wasn’t to my liking, I wanted something that said, ” I  am man , hear me roar” but with nice skin. Ursa skin products for men was brought to attention just this morning and I am ready to consume the whole line. Take a look men. Did you notice the awesome label?

Men’s Skin 101

You may have noticed: men’s facial skin is different to women’s skin. It’s thicker, oilier, has more pores and sweats more. And of course men have much tougher, faster-growing hair follicles or ‘whiskers’. All this creates a unique set of challenges best met by regular use of skincare products designed specifically for men.

It should have been seen as a sign that a man can shave every day of his life and his beard will keep growing back. Over the past few years, we’ve seen facial hair sprouting up on faces everywhere. Men want to experiment with their facial gardens, but it’s not always just as easy as putting the razor to rest…

From making the decision to wear facial hair, to the best way to take it off, all men can finally be stylish and care for their appearance while staying true to who they are: Men.

The guy’s got swagger in spades…and that attitude comes through on the pages. That makes the book a fun read – even if your aspirations for facial adornment never move beyond the milk-mustache phase.

Hair to Stay: From the Shaggy ’70s to the Modern Otter

by Accidental Bear

Gay.com Daily breaks done hair politics and trends like 1,2,3.

—————————————————————————————————–

By Kit Christopher & Joe Thompson

Hair. For gay men, it can be a complex topic.

Those thousands upon thousands of tiny strands do more than frame your features and enhance your masculinity. They are a social signifier that can communicate everything from how you feel about politics to how you want to be viewed to who you want in bed—and what you’ll do with the guy once you get him there.

For the last few decades it’s been easy to track the twin progressions of hair and sex in the media. In 1968, Hair brought shaggy manes, bearded faces, and sexual abandon to Broadway; in 1970, Joe Dallesandro memorably debuted his past-shoulder-length, stick-straight tresses in the movie Trash; and in 1972, Burt Reynolds stunned the world in his Cosmopolitan centerfold wearing just a smile and the most beautiful mustache ever grown—oh, and some luxurious chest hair that would be popping out of unbuttoned shirts for the next few decades.

HAIRY BUSINESS; HAIR TRADE

by Accidental Bear

I wonder how much I could get for a sink pull of pubes? Could they be transplanted onto a twinks chin?

The Hair Trade

Julia Sherman profiled a wig maker. The basics:

The market for human hair is generally limited to places with impoverished populations willing to sell a two-foot ponytail — the product of two years of growth — for twenty dollars. Dark hair comes primarily from South America, India, and Mongolia. Helene says that the ample selection of hair colors and textures in South America — the result of more than twenty-five generations of intermarriage between Europeans and indigenous people — make it the ideal source region.
