How to avoid this mistake? Here are the questions you must answer before going out to buy a refrigerator

1. Measure twice, buy once

2. Mark out any restricting obstacles, larger fridges have a wider door swing while double door side-by-side refrigerators have narrower doors.

4. And most importantly, an easy delivery and return option offered by the store.

Why barbershops are important

Barbershops are important because they talk you out of these catastrophes!

#measure2-cut1 Facial Hair barbershop

 

Measure Twice, Cut Once. Unless it’s Halloween or Pirate day, Use a barber.

Ask the experts #measure2-cut1: Getting it right. According to The Art of Manliness  Sculpting your beard is best left in the hands of a professional barber rather than the cute hairdresser at Supercuts. They’ll do things with an electric number 2 razor – like taper the lines, and shape the chin and advise you whether you should keep the cheeks shorter than the goatee area.

All things I don’t understand, but if you have a beard and a social life – they are vitally important. Go to the place that understands manly follicles best – The American Barbershop.
