  25 Bleached Hair Color Ideas for Men (White, Silver, Platinum, etc)
Posted by: A London Barber - 09-15-2018 12:12 PM - Replies (3)

Bleached hair styles cover the spectrum of white, platinum, silver and light blonde colors that have become popular as of recently. So here are 25 bleached hair style ideas for you to consider if you want to jump on this online craze! If instead you would rather go with something like blue or green as your hair color style, then see this merman guide.

Bleached hair color styles gallery:
Remember that the hair can be bleached all across or as highlights. Whatever you get, get it done by a professional who has a lot of experience with bleaching men's hair. The length of the bleaching will dictate the actual tone or you can get a silver overcoat if that's your thing.

Star Gillette Mach3 vs Schick Quattro razor - Comparison review
Posted by: A London Barber - 08-19-2018 08:14 AM - Replies (1)

A comparison review between the Gillette Mach3 razor and the Schick Quattro Midnight razor
The last thing you want to do in the morning when you’re groggy and trying to shake off sleep is hear the metallic drone of an electric razor. Don’t get me wrong - I like electronic things - my electronic toothbrush gets plenty of use. One of the reasons my toothbrush gets plenty of use is that it doesn’t make noise. You don’t plug it in; it runs by battery. Its operation is virtually silent, about the same decibel level as a buzzing mosquito, but somehow less annoying.

Therefore, my preferred shaving tools are completely non-electronic and silent. Moreover, both have the advantage of political correctness since they don’t use electricity. I’ve bought two manually operated razors: the Schick Quattro Midnight and the Gillette Mach3. They’re both fast, reliable, and have plenty of pickup. Still, one of my razors has a slightly better hold on my heart. Why?

I’ve had the Mach3 Gillette Safety Razor for a longer period of time than I’ve had the Schick Quattro. There was a bit of condition-response in that buying choice. When it comes to household products, consumers tend to copy their parents. My father used Gillette products, including their razor blades, and I was not bold enough to know what my mother used. Marketing specialists know this and put a lot of money into promoting their products in the hope of keeping generations of consumers buying their products.

[Image: 9c70L5B.jpg]

Another condition-response factor which made my first choice of the Mach3 Gillette product easier was that the advertisers tended to put their product in front of the consumer’s face at macho sporting events like boxing. Yes, I’ll admit it right now. When I use my Gillette Mach3, I become suddenly confident I could beat Vladimir Klitchko for the Heavyweight Championship of the World. I wonder what razor he uses.

Schick is also aware of the complications of the male psyche. The Schick Quattro website ad points out the “smoothness” of the Schick Quattro Midnight and the worry one has about having to beat back female attention:

“Easy ladies, there’s enough of me to go around,” says the ad.

Somehow it’s a lot easier to imagine myself winning the boxing heavyweight championship of the world than saying “Easy ladies, there’s enough of me to go around.”

I’ll tell you where the Schick Quattro Midnight excels. It is smooth operating as the advertising states. It’s four blade titanium head floats on the skin so easily you can barely feel it. It truly baffled me at first and I thought perhaps the blade was upside down. The Gillette Mach3 is also smooth but has a definite “feel” to it. It doesn’t glide the way the Schick Quattro Midnight does, but it doesn’t scratch or cut either.

[Image: eIi6CBh.jpg]

Though the four-blade shaving head would seem to be superior to the three-blade head of the Gillette Mach3 razor, I think the Gillette Mach3 is less apt to clog with shaving cream. With both razors, you’re advised on the packaging to rinse often. With the Gillette Mach3, it seems that I have to rinse less and can remain a bit longer in my morning hazy condition.

In examining these tonsorial products from the male standpoint, one must congratulate the product designers and scientists who work together to produce these fine products. Both the Schick and the Gillette are examples of forward thinking design. Both razors fit into the hand as easily as custom-designed golf clubs. The Schick Quattro Midnight has the slight edge because of its curved handle design. The straighter Gillette Mach3 is not uncomfortable to hold, however; its combination of plastic and metal has a keen and ergonomic feel. Even the placement of the Gillette Brand logo is both intuitive and aesthetically pleasing.

There is a slight edge in favor of the Gillette on the purchase price of replacement blades at the place where I shop. The Schick Quattro replacement package of 4 blades costs $9.29 and the Gillette Mach3 package of 4 replacement blades costs $8.49. I’ll rescue you from doing the math (runs for a calculator); there’s an eighty cent difference there. Could that fourth blade be worth it? Easy ladies, there’s enough of me to go around.

Men's electric razors have come a long way. They now have modern technology that makes the shaves smoother than they have ever been. And they are much easier to clean. Most are just rinse and go.

These men's electric razors are from some of the top manufacturers and you will find one to fit just about any budget.

A review of the best manual shaving razors for dudes
Men's manual razors have come a long way in the past 10 years with more blades, electric vibrating technology, and even trimmers. This review will take a look at 5 of the best manual razors for men, what makes them so good, where to get them, and an average price. FYI, there are more shaver reviews from myself and others in this sub-forum: http://www.menshairforum.com/talk/Forum-...g-Products

Gillette Fusion Power Razor
The Gillette Fusion Power razor is a great men's manual razor that delivers exceptional results. This razor has 5 blades that are closer together than a razor with less blades, this creates less irritation from razor burn and makes for a very close shave. This shaving system also comes with a precision blade on the back for close trimming where a 5 blade system is too big. This trimmer blade is very useful for any touch ups on a short beard. This product also has electric power to make whiskers stand on edge for an even closer shave. The Gillette fusion power razor can be found for around $8 dollars, euros or British pounds.

[Image: wY18pLA.jpg]

Gillette Fusion Phenom
This is another great men's manual razor from Gillette. This razor has 5 close together blades for a close comfortable shave and has as precision trimmer on the back for hard to shave spots. This razor is not however electric; however shares the same razor cartridges as the Gillette fusion power razor. The blades have a fading strip to indicate when it is time to change the blade. The Gillette Fusion Phenom can be found for around $10 dollars/euros/pounds at your local drug store or pharmacy (e.g. Boots).

[Image: ZbBprIN.jpg]

Schick Hydro 5 Body Groomer and Shaver
This all-round razor from Schick is a great manual razor with an attached trimmer. This razor features four titanium blades that can be used in the shower and one trimming blade on the back of the cartridge for a precise cut. The handle of the razor has a great small power trimmer for precision trims and overly long hair spots. The Schick Hydro 5 trimmer and razor is a great all in one men's manual razor and it can be found for around $12 dollars/pounds at most local stores.

[Image: LqySKdG.jpg]

Gillette Mach3 Men's razor
This manual razor from Gillette comes with three blades that deliver a close shave. The Gillette Mach3 razor actually works well for a three bladed razor and provides very minor irritation and in fact gives a very close shave. The Gillette Mach3 product can be found for around 9 bucks (be it US dollars, euros or pounds). It's very cheap for what you're truly getting.

Schick Quattro Titanium Razor
This epic Schick shaving razor provides a close shave using its four titanium coated blades. The razor is easy to hold and use and comes with a conditioning strip built right into the blade cartridge. This is a great men's manual razor, the blades also last for a good amount of time, and I have used the same blade for about a 1-2 months before replacing. This product can be found for less than $10 dollars/euros/pounds.

  Clippers cut beard but not hair
Posted by: Duhjoker - 05-03-2018 12:31 AM - No Replies

Hi guys

I actually googled the title first but all the hits were about beard trimming and had nothing to do with up there hair.

My problem is that i’ve been using a pair of wahl clipoers for more than a 8 years and they cut my beard hair easily though it is quite tough and thick. And when i say easily i mean easily!

But when I go to trim my hair like i have done for the past 25 years they have a hard time. Wetting my hair works but not really.

My hair style is long up top but the sides and back are trimmed tight due to my hair type which is thick and curly nb(wavy when long!) and frizzy. I use argan oil for the frizz which works perfectly but growing out the sides and back just creates a mess of unkempt hair no matter whst i do.

Any way i’ve tried adjusting the lever and the power screw with no luck. I have also removed the blades and cleaned them and oiled them. It would be nice to trim my hair with out it taking an hour.

Ive tried other trimmers as well with no luck.

The weird thing is that if i go to the barber and they use the same set im using it cuts through my hair easily and with out fault.

Can some one help me?

  How to use curling iron
Posted by: InfinitePanther - 03-14-2018 04:54 AM - No Replies

When I use a curling iron, it always comes out frizzy, and instead of becoming a curl/wave, it just sticks up. I want to go for that natural pompadour type look, so I only want to use the curling iron to bend the fringe part of my hair back with a wavy look. How do I do that? My hair is more medium length and my fringe area goes down to my eyelashes.
My hair is very straight so it’s hard to push back/comb back without excessive products. It’s also very thick, but that does not help it slick back. My hairstyle is long on top & short on sides. I usually style it in a natural pompadour look, so you can imagine the difficulty in trying to do a pompadour with a natural look that constantly falls down/drops to the side without a lot of hair products.
Do I have to wait until my fringe grows longer? Are there any tips on how to use the iron to suit what I’m looking for? Thanks.

  How to dye hair to get bright salt and pepper look?
Posted by: alpharalpha - 03-04-2018 09:02 AM - No Replies

Hello, my hair has started to get salt and pepper but the color is dull especially the gray. I notice celebrities have nice bright silvers and blended tones. Has anyone here done this? I have bleached it once about a year ago, used some blonde dye and some touch of gray which for a first try worked ok. Now I am going to bleach it again, use toner to remove the orange tones to get as close to white, and use a bright semi-permanent silver for the temples and try to use as little as possible of the touch of gray so as to maximize the bright tones while having enough dark to blend in with my roots. Any advice?
