Day 2 Gifts for HIM!

HIMS.jpg

Today I wants to share a subscription box that your sweetie will appreciate. Not all guys can SEE themselves in the mirror. They see what they want to see. But my handsome husband sees a thinning hair and is not happy. Guys want to look and FEEL good about themselves too. So, I reached out to this company to feature their box on my Holiday Gift guide for HIM on TV. They accommodated me with a box of their ever popular starter box at a special price for men!

The San Francisco company was started by a man and OBVIOUSLY he too wants to look his best! This is a photo of the box you might have seen on commercials for ONLY $5.00 Beautiful Bucks 

It is a complete hair kit for men!

It contains a shampoo,Multivitamin Gummies which are all the rage and a topical solution to help with hair growth and giving the hair follicles what they need.

It comes in  a manly box and has a HIMS cloth travel bag for the guy on the go and a descriptive brochure with it.

Consistency is key!!! Really!

As with all products we use the more regular they are used,the better. OH so true! As a beauty and skin care therapist I often I OFTEN see and hear how a woman tried an eye or face cream and did not see results, When I probe they say they used it now and then. Well, you can’t see result unless you use ANY beauty and skin care product for awhile. Consistency is key. Even on a diet to lose weight. RIGHT?

Besides hair care they have an a la carte line of skin care with simple packaging and names.

If you want to enhance your husbands world and help him maintain and healthy and handsome looking appearance or you find him borrowing and probing into your toiletry basket or vanity. Get him something he can use. Add a box of home-made cookies and or a beer and you’re good to go. Not a talking fish on a plaque or something else he doesn’t need. You don;t need to spend a fortune.

Little did I know my manly and burly 6 ft. 2 husband already reached out to HIMS a few weeks ago and ordered a hair shampoo online from them and is using it religiously. I spy in the bathroom. I didn’t say a word I just smiled and said to myself…good for you!

Sometimes men don’t know what they want or need. Sometimes it is good to help them along. This Christmas think about that stocking stuffer or gift you give to all the guys in your life.

You’ll be glad you did and so will they.

By the way, the code is hims5 … A BOX of Follicle Fun!

Meet L.A.’s Grooming EXPERT

Featuring MY FRIEND and blog guest… Cole Patterson, Celebrity Skincare Specialist/Grooming Expert
How did you get started in the beauty industry?
I started my career as a makeup artist over a decade working on music videos and commercials.  I’ve always been passionate about skincare and wellness.  Being a licensed esthetician I offered more than concealing and contouring for talent.
Working behind the scenes gave me the opportunity to touch celebrities than extended beyond makeup application.  I was able to education them on new products, techniques and tips on how to maintain flawless healthy after pre and post makeup up.
As my career blossomed I acquired a large male clientele working with music artists, professional athletes, and Hollywood’s A-Listers.
I’ve worked with celebrities such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Usher, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Anthony Anderson, Larenz Tate and the list goes on.
What drove you to come out with your own skin care line?
Being a licensed professional and working as a makeup artist I realized skincare to be a factor to maintaining a flawless palette.  I noticed women had a plethora of products to care for their skin on set and home regimen while men were subject to using whatever was available.  Seeing men under served in this area I saw a need to offer them gender specific advanced products that were easy to use and required minimal steps.
In 2014 I formulated Cole Skincare for Men and launched online in 2015 featuring the 3-in-1 Foaming Cleanser as our 1st multi-functional product.
I’m a single mother of 2 children so my day is pretty extreme with juggling motherhood, business, personal life.  Last year I took a leap of faith and pursued my dream of becoming a filmmaker so just as things were balancing out I decided it was time that I live out my dreams and create, produce and direct.  Currently I have a documentary series aired on The Word Network I produced and directed which aired April 16, 2018.
Besides your work schedule what does a typical day look like for you?
My day consist of waking up at 4am to medicate, hit the gym at 5am to return home by 6:30am to get the kids off to school which is an hour drive to make it to my 10am yoga class.
After yoga my mind is clear and ready to create.  I research new products ,trends and techniques for skin care including but not limited to medial treatments and plastic surgery.  I spend a few hours a day working on my skincare line.  By 2:00 I head to pick up the kids, homework, dinner, put them to sleep.  While there sleep it’s my creative space I spend this time to conceptualize ideas, ads, & commercials for Cole Skincare for Men or explore different genre of movies to keep fresh ideas and concepts brewing for my next directorial project.
I am so proud of my friend and colleague Cole!

Styling Gel DIY for Guys and Dolls

photo EGGSMy husband and I know this guy who has awesome hair and now and then he gels it up in the most fantastic ways and without the magic of a hair stylist! He shared his styling secret with me and it does not come in a tube or jar on a store or salon shelf!

What you will need is: 2 egg whites

Whip two egg whites to perfection as if you are making lemon meringue pie. Place a little on the hands and blend unto almost dry hair. Start styling your hair the way you want. Eggs contain protein that nourish the hair.

This D.I.Y. hair gel is easy to make and awesome.Especially on shorter hair.

Enjoy!
