What product can’t you live without and why?

I definitely couldn’t live without XFusion Keratin Fibers.  Most people probably haven’t heard of this product, but it is a well guarded secret.  Everyone from A-list celebrities to the average Joe use this product to cover up thinning hair or to enhance hair for a photo shoot or the red carpet.  Let’s face it guys, none of us want to go bald.  XFusion lets you maintain that “full hair” look and looks natural. 

How would you describe your grooming habits?

I think my grooming habits are pretty normal in comparison to other real “city” guys.  I definitely try and get a haircut in at least once a month with a touch up in between.  I shave my facial hair about once a week since I personally prefer an edgier, rough look.  When it comes to body hair I’m pretty “au natural” and definitely keep it trim down there and everywhere but am not into shaving or waxing my body. 

Have you ever gotten a manicure or pedicure? Why or why not?

Definitely, and after my sister forced me to do it the first time in college I am hooked.  She would ask me why I always wore socks and it’s because I was embarrassed by my feet and when she saw them she understood why.  After she told me that no girl would want to “hit that” she dragged me to her nail place and next thing you know I’m a regular.  I started with manicures after that because hey, why not?

If you could have one night with any celebrity who would it be and why?  More importantly, what would you do?

I think it would have to be Lady GaGa – she is crazy, outgoing, and daring.  I like that.  Probably follow her to the recording studio, perform a duet, and then party all night!  JUST DANCE!   

What’s the first thing you notice about a woman?  

I notice a few things right away, eyes, lips, and teeth.  Just a woman’s eyes can say so much about who they are, and sometimes the way they look at you can be very sexy.  Full lips are extremely hot as well, sounds cliché, but Angelina Jolie’s lips are ideal.  And last but not least it is IMPERATIVE to maintain proper dental hygiene; I can’t stress how disgusting it is when you have yellow teeth or bad breath. 

Do you prefer a woman el natural or all made up?  How come?

I prefer them both ways, depends on the occasion and the mood.  If I’m taking her out to dinner and then we’re going partying or going out after I definitely want her all done and rocking it out because I want to show her off and enjoy looking at her.  But if we’re just hanging by the pool or beach or lounging around on the weekend el natural can definitely be cute. 

How about down there?   

I prefer a neatly groomed landing strip.  I know it can be hard to maintain but definitely looks prettier.  I mean completely bare is great too but definitely only if you wax regularly.  I prefer women to wax in general if they can, arms, legs, wax it all!  In my experience some girls who shave get really prickly down there if you know what I mean.

When it comes to a woman’s beauty what’s your sweet spot?

I’d have to say nice legs.  It is definitely very sexy when a woman is wearing a tight pair of jeans and has that perfect amount of separation between her thighs, not too skinny, but just right.
