Memorial Day has come and gone and we have now officially entered the season of “I Do.” What I took away from the evening (aside from the heart-shaped cookie-cutter favors and a hangover) was that grooms and their groomsmen are in need of a little grooming guidance. If you’re getting married soon, take note.
The Motley is proud to now carry Ursa Major for Men, a natural skincare line designed to provide men with a healthy and highly effective skin care routine. We love that these products are made from potent natural ingredients (many of them organic) and never any toxins (parabens, sulfates or synthetic fragrances) for skincare you can trust.
We’re taking cues from Jeremiah Simmons, writer of A Headlong Dive, in our second installment of Morning Routine. Jeremiah lives in Winter Park, Florida.

As a sportsman from New Zealand, Dion Nash spent long periods outside exposed to sun, wind, and sweat. Because of this, he grew acutely aware of the effect the sun and our environment has on skin and consequently on the way we feel. He recently launched Triumph & Disaster, a skincare line inspired by nature and science, and shared his grooming “must-do’s” with us.
When it comes to superior grooming products, Details associate editor Kristen Dold is an expert. She has picked some of her favorites (along with the Details team) that are available here at The Motley.
If the quiff hairstyles of James Dean, Elvis Presley and Morrisey are shaped up (pun intended) as freshly showered and slick, Garrett Hudland’s hairstyle on this month’s cover of Details represents the free-spirited, rebellious “day two” of the same hairstyle. Think of it as the morning after hairstyle of other 1950’s leading men. We sat down with Los Angeles hair stylist Russ Hart to advise us on how to get the look.
The weather’s getting colder and December is fast approaching. Shopping for the dad, brother, nephew, roommate (or lets be real, the boyfriend) isn’t easy. Here are our holiday gift recommendations for the guys on your list.
Nothing’s gnarlier than red, itchy spots that pop up on your neck after shaving. It’s embarrassing, and (sorry) it looks amateurish. Bring the razor super-close (think: Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris in Skyfall’s seductive-shave scene) with these six easy tips.
Scrubbing dead skin away unclogs your pores, helping to greatly reduce breakouts. Using a scrub before you shave will reduce ingrown hairs by lifting hair away from your face ― this means a closer, smoother shave.
Before you go spend your paycheck on an array of creams and cleansers, you need to learn a bit about your skin. The thing is, we don’t all have the same skin type. A product that works for your friend might not work for you. But once you understand your own skin type, choosing the right products and establishing an effective routine will become a whole lot easier.
We’re in the midst of summer: that means hitting the beaches and spending time in the sun. That also means your skin can take a real nasty hit and dry up like a raisin. That is, unless you adequately protect yourself.
