While green beauty and grooming brand Aveda has been selling man-specific and unisex solutions for hair, skin and body for what seems like ages, it’s hoping to lure more dudes with the launch of the aptly named Aveda Men Shop, which recently opened in St. Petersburg, Florida, and will eventually expand across the country.

Designed for the namesake sex, the space is done up in well-worn wood and black leather befitting of its masculine clientele–and the shelves are stocked with some of Aveda’s greatest hits, like Rosemary Mint Shampoo, Dual Action Aftershave, and Shampure Body Lotion.

Beyond straight-up retail, the shop is really about what happens in the four chairs in the middle of the floor. It’s in these stations where man-friendly treatments are administered. The offering on the grooming menu are designed based on the assumption that guys prefer to spend as little time as possible to look as good as possible. On offer are super speedy services, like a hair touch-up, wax, or scalp treatment, that take as little as fifteen minutes from start to finish. Or if you have a little more time to spare in the chair, you can get a haircut or even a facial.

To book said treatments, customers simply need to avail themselves of the self-serve kiosk, which informs them of wait time and offers the choice of next available barber or their preferred pro. A specially-designed app will inform them when it’s time for their appointment. And when time is up, checking out is a matter of tapping away on iPad. All in all, it’s these details that make it “much like a fast-paced barbershop,” says Kevin Molin, Aveda Vice President of Global Education. It’s a virtually stress-free process made even less so when the treatment concludes with the brand’s signature Stress-Relieving Neck and Shoulder Ritual.

If you happen to be in St. Petersburg, check out Aveda Men Shop at 235 3rd St S #200, or for more inforamtion, go directly to its website:

6 of the Best Eco-Friendly Razors for Men
Man shaving with razor burn

Stop! Is that shave as good for you as it is for the planet? A recent report from the United Nations says that “plastic accounts for 85 percent of marine litter.” Besides news videos of massive piles of waste washing up on what should be pristine shores in Southeast Asia, there are also stories about micro-plastics making their way into all the corners of the seas, into fish, and, therefore, onto our dinner tables. Eliminating this problem is one of the toughest challenges we face as a species. Look around at almost any moment and see how much plastic has invaded our lives, perhaps nowhere more so than in our bathrooms. That's why we’ve made no secret that we don't love plastic disposable razors.
My somewhat hardline tree-hugging philosophies aside, I’d be lying if I said sometimes a recyclable container may end up in the trash if it’s inconvenient. However, we also recognize that sometimes — particularly at the gym or for travel  — they make more sense than old-fashioned safety razors or straight razors (and just try getting one of those through TSA). In fact, Schick used this as a teachable moment, pointing out that the disposable razor we’ve decried has 100% recycled packaging, is available to be recycled for free via its mail-in program, and does come in an earth-friendlier version.
Even the more common cartridge razors come with their own garbage issues: Although their handles can last a long, long time, those disposable cartridges can’t effectively be recycled, and so also end up in the garbage stream. Like all of us, shaving companies are trying to do what they can to make the whole experience more planet-friendly, while making sure that we can all still get a fresh, clean shave. Here are a few solutions that we hope you’ll try.

The 19 Best Face and Body Wipes for Men

As we've learned this past year, it's always good to take personal hygiene seriously. You've hopefully already got a well-stocked bathroom in terms of your shower routine, but what about the rest of your daily lifestyle? Maybe it's finally time to level up your hygiene kit with high-quality and skin-friendly body wipes, which are helpful should you forget to bring your hand sanitizer to your favorite restaurant or to refresh on a road trip. What’s great about body wipes and other essential grooming products is that they’re compact, making them the perfect travel grooming items for an all-weekend trip to the backcountry or the beach.

However, body wipes do more than just kill germs, since some are geared toward removing makeup or are imbued with ingredients to target specific skin types -- just like your go-to face washes. Now that the season for outdoor adventures is here, let’s do everything we can to stay fresh and clean, starting with the best face and body wipes for men. Be sure to dispose of the wipes properly after use. Don't flush them, please.
