“I like the way you comb your hair and the stylish clothes you wear…”
I’m sitting at my desk jamming to a 90’s hip hop mix when Wreckx-N-Effect’s infamous “Rump Shaker” came on. As I was shaking my rump at my desk, my mind wandered back to a question that a girl I mentor asked me, “what type of men are you into?”. This is such a good question. On my blog, I’ve already outlined some of the men to avoid so I think it’s time to investigate some of the things that stand out to women about men.
Some women like men to have a specific type of hair style and others don’t but I think that we all agree in that your hair should be neat and somewhat styled. What does this mean exactly? If you’re bald, spit shine that or we will. Have locks? That is really sexy as long as they aren’t sh*t locks. Maintain that hairline and make sure the locks are properly maintained. Rockin the wild look like Lenny Kravitz circa 2008? Puhlease make sure that you’re hair is moisturized and the hairline is kept up. Have the Nutty Professor fro? Well, there’s actually not much I can say here. That sort of thing doesn’t so much appeal to me but to each is their own. I’m a NY-er and a popular cut up there is the Caeser. I LOVE a man with a Caeser. So sexy… either way, keep it funky and keep it fresh with the hair. We pay attention to that.
There’s nothing worse then the smell of a funky man. And to be perfectly honest, with Axe, Tag, and all these other man-geared-smell-good companies there’s no reason why all men don’t smell good. Before we go any further on this, I do need to clarify one or two things.
- the Axe/Tag deodorants are not for the gym or any strenuous activity so don’t use it for such. Please stick to Degree and other more powerful deodorants as these deodorants are for dates, walks in the park, snuggling up in front of the tv, etc.
- no matter what the commercials say, dousing yourself in these scents will not send me or any other female I know chasing after you. And please don’t try to douse yourself in this in lieu of bathing… huge no-no.
ok… and we’re back.
I hate when I see a cute guy who’s dressed ‘nicely’ but has on some jacked up shoes. Yes fellas, women do the elevator look too and if we happen to come upon your shoe game and it’s lackluster, best believe we’re high tailing it the other way. The question that I often get is, “ladebelle isn’t it a little shallow to pre-judge based on shoes?” and the answer is, yes, yes it is but I don’t care. Shoes speak to me. How? Because if he can’t buy and then maintain a decent pair of shoes then surely he cannot handle me or my maintenance. That’s how I feel about it and I’m sticking to it.
Of course I wouldn’t be so shallow as to say that only these physical/materialistic things are all that matter. I mean, personality and sh*t matter too. But I really do think that Wreckx-N-Effect had it right with the line of “I like the way you comb your hair and the stylish clothes you wear…” when it comes time to pick out a member of the opposite or same if you roll that way sex. So ladies, what am I missing from here? Let the fellas know what we’re looking at. And fellas, what does your hair, scent, and shoes say about you? Do you think this is fair that these are some of the things we should be checking for? Talk to me!
