It may seem deceptively simple, but who does our advice apply to? We always strive to give our audience useful, practical advice about style, life, dating, and more, all from an experienced and thoughtful perspective. Whether it’s wardrobe tips for the season or advice on how to improve social skills, we always do our best to appeal to as broad of an audience as possible.
In this episode of 2 Minute Tuesday we’re diving into a great question about who should take our advice and why, so tune in and find out what we think!
Sexual Orientation Doesn’t Matter
Our life and style advice applies to all, regardless of hair color, body type, or sexual preference. We do our best to give our educated advice on style and life that should work for most, if not all people. Sexual preference is a highly personal subject to you and you alone, we’re just here to help you dress and live better, no matter who you’re into. So, you can take that idea out of the equation and just focus on it without the lens of sexual preference.
Essential Style Is Important, But Make It Personal
We always discuss the foundations of a timeless, Essential Wardrobe because it’s versatile and always in style. But that doesn’t mean you have to dress a particular way if it’s not you. Once you have the foundations of style built you can then add in your personal touches to make it your own. Like streetwear or “bad boy style”, your personal style shouldn’t feel like a costume or inauthentic, it should be a representation of your own personality, no matter who you are or what your sexual orientation is.
By now you probably know that women dyeing their hair is a common thing. But what about men? Whether for fun or to cover up grey, we’re discussing our thoughts on whether or not men should dye their hair in our latest episode of 2 Minute Tuesday.

Dyeing For Fun
We’re definitely all for bleaching or coloring your hair for fun. It can be a cool, adventurous way to mix up your look and it doesn’t have to be permanent. Just make sure you visit a good salon and let a professional handle it. Also, don’t forget to get the right kind of shampoo and hair care products for your new ‘do.
Covering Up Grey
If you’re a guy who’s looking to cover up a little bit of the salt in your salt and pepper hair, by all means, go for it. Be aware of the time and commitment it takes to keep up this look though, it can be significant. Again, we recommend seeking some help here and make sure you do it properly and don’t end up looking like you’ve got shoe polish on your head. At a certain point though, If you’re mostly grey, just embrace it, George Clooney looks pretty damn good, doesn’t he?
Just like we discussed in our post about 5 Hairstyles Women Love For 2019, your hairstyle is definitely something that says a lot about your style. So, it’s important to take the time to dial in the right one for your hair type and face shape. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different cuts, barbers/stylists, and products. We’ve also got a ton of articles for you about hairstyles, so make sure to check them out!
This style had its day, but it’s a bit too extreme for most men.
Need I say any more? Just don’t ever do it.
Crazy, unkempt hair is never sexy so it’s always important to take proper care of your hair, no matter how long it is.
If you’re losing your hair, just embrace it. A short buzz or crew cut is going to be a lot more flattering.
Maybe you’re trying to make a statement, but I doubt many women want to hear that statement.
Your hairstyle says a lot about you and is something women definitely notice. So, it’s important to take the time to dial in the right one for your hair type and face shape.

Classic Side Part
You can go classic with a bit more length or fade the sides for a bit more modern look. The side part is super versatile and you can go slick or more natural depending on how you’re dressing.
Best for hair with texture. It’s low-maintenance and very clean and classic. This style is also great for men with thinning hair.
Brush-Up / New Pompadour
Not as slick as a traditional pompadour, this version is a bit more relaxed and works with a variety of hair types. Just make sure to keep the sides short but not too short.
Works best for men with longer/wavier hair. Leave the top longer and keep the sides and back shorter. Best for men with longer and curlier hair as it lets you embrace your hair’s natural look.
Results can vary but with the right look many men can pull this off and look really sexy and confident. Also, if you’re losing your hair, just embrace it, this is the way to go.
Proper grooming is one of the biggest things you can do to keep up a sharp overall look and put your best foot forward with women. You don’t have to have a complex routine or a million fancy products, just a few simple steps will help you stand out from the crowd.

7 Grooming Hacks Women Will Notice
Mouth / Breath care – Obviously bad breath is going to be a huge turn-off, so make sure you not only have good brushing habits but also take care of your breath.
Handcare – Dry cracked hands and dirty or unclipped fingernails are just gross! Find a good non-greasy moisturizer to use regularly and keep your nails clean and in check.
Take care of overly dry or oily skin – You’ve got to keep that moneymaker in good shape and women notice the skin on your face (obviously!) much more than you might think. Find the right cleanser and moisturizer that works for your skin type. If your skin gets oily, invest in some facial wipes to tone it down.
Groomed hair – Your hairstyle is definitely a preference thing, but finding not only the right style/cut for your look and making it a regular part of your routine are things every man should put importance in. Regardless of how long or short your particular style is hair, that’s wild/unkempt or gross/dirty are never going to be attractive to a woman.
The right smell – Wearing deodorant/antiperspirant should absolutely go without saying, BO is definitely a no-go, but this also goes for body wash and soap. But there’s also a limit. My stance on cologne is well documented but if you choose to wear it, GO EASY, don’t be the guy who wears too much.
Lip care – Just like your hands, chapped, cracked lips are gross. Women will definitely notice your lips (especially if they’re thinking about kissing you) so do yourself a favor and invest in some proper lip balm and use regularly. Our favorites: R&D, Jack Black, Caudalie, Kiehl’s,
Beard maintenance – Many of you guys chose to have different levels of facial hair, and that’s totally cool, but it’s a privilege, not a right. No matter how much you have that you take good care of it. Keep it trimmed and in check and take care of the skin underneath as well. If your beard is patchy keep it very short or lose it completely and if your beard is more full, make sure it’s trimmed or shaped properly.
