“Even from a very young age, I always wanted my hair to look cool,” shares David Beckham. “For me, grooming is not only about how you look, but how you feel. It’s about being comfortable, trying new things and shaping your next look.”  Its no wonder that one of the world’s greatest athletes and style icons is unveiling his first global grooming brand, HOUSE 99.  The  collection of 21 innovative products was created by David Beckham in partnership with L’Oréal Luxe to provide all the tools men need to experiment with their look.  Beckham continues to challenge the notion of what it means to be “masculine,” Notoriously experimenting and reinventing his own image, the London-born footballer historically made caring about your style and changing your look acceptable amongst  

HOUSE 99 takes a holistic approach to grooming.  Merging British barbershop culture and style with hair, skin, beard and tattoo creativity, the brand’s aim is to build a home for every man’s next look.  Hero products include Seriously Groomed Beard & Hair Balm, Smooth Back Shaping Pomade, Greater Look Face Moisturizer, and Bold Statement Tattoo Body Moisturizer SPF30.  This new grooming brand will launch in the UK, exclusively at Harvey Nichols, on February 1st 2018, and will roll out to other British retailers, and in 19 countries, from March 1st 2018.

 

DOES YOUR MAN HAVE “THE DAD BOD”?

Robert and Ruffalo

Somewhere between David Beckham and Zach Galifianakis is something called, “the dad bod.”  Think Chris Pratt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jason Segel, Mark Ruffalo (right), or Robert Downey Jr. (left). According to an article in Clemson University’s The Odyssey, “The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.’ It’s not an overweight guy, but it isn’t one with washboard abs, either.”  So why are women lusting after this rather comfortable physique?  Primarily, its because of the easy confidence the man who wears it exudes.  A man with a dad bod is perceived as less threatening and more human.  We love him because he is more forgiving of our own transgressions, and, of course, we don’t have to fight over the mirror with him.
