A guy blogger gives us a man's take on hair, makeup and nail fashions.

Makeup Overload
He Says: "Too much of anything is usually a bad thing, and this is definitely true of make-up.  Subtle is always better, and honestly, I don't ever want to wonder what a woman really looks like underneath her makeup. If I can see powder on her face or wonder what colors she's using on her lips, cheeks, and around her eyes, then she's probably wearing a tad too much of something."

We Say: When in doubt, put down the makeup bag! Less really is more, and you want him to see you for the natural beauty you are, not impress him with how well you can wield a blush brush. Pick your best feature and make it stand out, and tone down the rest.

 

Overdone Hair
He Says: "Very few things impact a first impression more than overdone or bad hair. You can see it from a distance, can't ignore it, and it follows you around during a date. The more overdone hair is, the less interested I am in touching it."

We Say: Hair that feels stringy, crunchy, greasy, sticky, or otherwise untouchable is an instant mood-killer. Stick to post-shower, pre-blowdry products like anti-frizz serum, volumizing mousse, shine spray, and shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type for extra hair oomph, but ditch sticky sprays, gels, and pomades for date night.
