Dad is a pretty special guy, and I don’t know about you, but I always struggle finding a great gift.  After some research, I finally found the perfect Father’s Day gifts under $50:

For Fitness Dads:  If your dad is into exercising, he’ll run circles for Advanced Sweatproof Athletic Shirts ($25) from Kleinert’s.  This shirt improves circulation and hydration to keep him dry during his workouts. 

For Dads-On-The-Go:  If your dad travels a lot he’ll be thrilled to receive a Murad Man Carry-On shave kit ($35).  This gift is TSA approved, so he won’t have to fuss with airline regulations and can still have a clean shave while he’s away from home. 

For the Outdoors Dads:  If your dad is good with his hands, he’ll love a Swiss Army Climber pocket knife ($35) – I mean what man doesn’t like a knife, right?

For Grill-Master-Dads:  If your dad is proud of his grilling skills, he’ll savor a Monogram Steak Branding Iron ($40).  Now every guest at his BBQ will know just who grilled their steak to perfection!

For Tech-Savvy-Dads:  These guys are usually hard to shop for because they already have every new gadget under the sun.   If your dad loves technology he’ll blow a gasket for a Laptop Essentials Kit ($50) from BrookStone.  I’ve never heard a man not like this gift because it has six tools that make out-of-office laptop use so convenient. 

Happy Father’s Day!

pixie cutYou’ve seen it on Victoria Beckham, Kate Gosselin, Rhianna and many other celebrities.  The pixie cut is this summer’s must-have hairstyle.  Besides the edgy bob, woman are opting to go a step further with this daringly shorter style.

“This is a great cut because it can be tailored to match any face shape, personality, age and hair texture,” explained hairstylist Penny Doster with Hollywood And Mane salon.  “It suits everyone and anyone’s face shape.”

According to Penny, the most common customized areas of the pixie is leaving the hair longer in the back or at the sides of the head.  Its upkeep is also simple, with women only needing to apply either a light mouse before blow dry, or a workable pomade after  blowdrying. 

Tip:  To spike/texture  your own creative pixie try applying Lanza’s Urban Elements Molding Paste ($13).  It provides design support for creating fresh, unique styles.
