The Era Of The Silver Fox: Going Grey Isn't A Bad Thing

In a world where men have become more concerned about their appearance, aging can be seen as a battle to fight. We’re not going to say it’s not the time to step up your skin care regime and gym routine… But here’s somewhere you can just let it go: your hair.

Pluck those brows

Just as your hair texture and thickness changes on your head, it’s going to change on your eyebrows. That means you may find longer, coarser eyebrow hairs suddenly appearing out of nowhere.

Pluck the ones that bug you and ask your barber to trim your brows back into a more manageable shape the next time you’re in for a cut.
