How to Look Like Steve Jobs Caulfields Counter Commencement Speech Mac iPhone iPad iPad Job men's grooming St. Croix mock turtleneck New Balance 991 sneakers

Create your own reality distortion field.

Still looking for a Halloween costume?  Don’t fret.  Pay tribute to Steve Jobs by stealing his style.  It’s a look most people will immediately recognize.  Looking like the father of Apple is an affordable, straightforward process that involves three easy steps: 1) getting the right haircut, 2) proper beard trimming, and 3) finding the right wardrobe.

Step 1: Getting the Right Haircut
Ask your barber to use a “#8” all around (sides, back, and top) with no to very little tapering.  Style using Aveda’s Control Paste – this will give your hair a clean, effortless look.  Work a small amount into your palms and fingertips then apply using a gentle gliding motion to keep stray and flyaway hair in check.

Step 2: Trimming your Beard Properly
Keep your facial hair sleek and clean.  Use an attachment (usually it’s a #2) with your beard trimmer that will leave you with a 1/4″ facial hair length.  Your beard should start just below the cheek bone (from the top) and end about 3/4″ above the center of your adam’s apple (no pun intended).  After trimming your beard, moisturize your beard and skin with Beta Naturals 100% Pure Argan Oil Moisturizer – an effective, all-natural cruelty-free (Steve would approve) product to soothe your skin and soften your beard.

Step 3: Wear the Right Clothes and Accessories
Unless you’re a purist, you can pull off the Steve Jobs look without having to dip into your savings.  With the economy being so unstable, there’s no need to buy a $185 black mock turtleneck from St. Croix.  Instead, I suggest picking up a similar top from JC Penney or Sears for around $20.  For the pants, break out a pair of stonewash “dad” jeans or Levi’s 501 (Steve’s choice).  To complete the wardrobe, put on a pair of New Balance 991 running shoes or comparable 1980s-looking sneakers.  Accessorize with round eyeglasses (rimless preferred) and an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

Step 4 (optional): Have Fun
Nonchalantly browse an Apple store, solicit photographs outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, or start a Steve Jobs flash mob.

Gets Guys Clean Naturally: Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash

Burts Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash Ingredients List Caulfields Counter

Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees and Drugstore.com.
Scent: Woodsy & citrusy blend of bergamot, lemon, sweet orange, patchouli, and fir.
I like: that the product is all natural. The scent is masculine without being overpowering.  It cleans without leaving your skin feeling dry.
Not a fan of: nothing.  Just don’t expect a lot of lather.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Body Wash is a wonderful smelling all-natural shower gel that doesn’t over-dry your skin.  The scent is a fresh and woodsy blend of bergamot, lemon, sweet orange, patchouli, and fir.  Because the body wash is all-natural, it doesn’t produce a lot of suds – which makes the product ideal for those with dry or sensitive skin.  To maximize lathering, I suggest using a shower sponge.   Otherwise, you’ll end up using a lot of product in a short amount of time.  At under ten dollars, this Burt’s Bees body wash is definitely worth trying.

Anthony Logistics for Men OIL FREE FACIAL LOTION SPF 15 Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skincare Mens Grooming

Anthony Logistics for Men Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 15 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Anthony Logistics for Men, Sephora, and Nordstrom.
Scent: Subtle citrus.
I Like: the light texture, refreshing scent, and sun protection.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean the sun’s UV rays aren’t as strong.  It’s imperative that we apply a moisturizer with sun protection if we go out during the day.  Anthony Logistics for Men’s Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 15 is a great product for those with normal/combination to oily skin to use in such situations.  Though the product claims to be fragrance free, I detected a slight citrus fragrance – it’s quite nice actually.  It has a light texture.  The lotion does a fine job at moisturizing and providing sun protection without leaving behind a heavy greasy film.  If you have extremely oily skin, however, don’t expect this moisturizer to solve your shiny face issues.

L'Occitane CADE After Shave Balm Men Review Caulfields Counter Grooming Male Skin Care Soothing Razor Burn Irritation

L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm

L'Occitane CADE After Shave Balm Men Ingredients Caulfields Counter Grooming Razor Burn Soothing Irritation

L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Nordstrom, Amazon, and L’Occitane.
Scent: Woodsy blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch.
I Liked: how well this product worked as a moisturizer.  The balm effectively soothed my skin and provided relief from razor burn.
Not a fan of: the potency of the scent.  I would like this product even more if the scent was less obvious.

L’Occitane’s Cade After Shave Balm is more like a face cream.  Its texture is very thick, which makes it better suited as a fall/winter moisturizer.  At $30 for a 2.5 ounce tube, this balm is relatively expensive.  However, a little of it goes a long way.  You should be able to get at least  four months of use out of one tube.  I enjoyed the scent despite how strong it was.  The fragrance is a blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch with a hint of baby powder – it sounds like an odd combination but those scents somehow work well together.  Try it if you have dry skin or constantly suffer from razor burn.
