Slick-backed hair has evolved through the years: You can still wear it like a stock trader, or opt for a more casual-cool, less shiny finish. (Same idea, less slick.) Regardless of your intent, we wanted to know how to get long-lasting, good-looking results every time. For that, we sought expertise from Gregorio Ruggeri, owner and lead stylist at Salon Ruggeri in NYC. First, you should always style clean hair.
It's time to honor the goatee. Brad Pitt is the grooming legend of our time. Think of the hoards of Americans who got the exact same haircut that he has in Fury trailer. It was an epidemic. Would it be too much to blame him for the ubiquity of the goatee between our golden shores? Perhaps not. Trouble is, Pitt's one of the few people who can pull off that goatee. He makes it look... expensive. Which is not usually the case.
Related: The Best Razors for MenYou want to get the most out of each blade—the closest shave, sans any agony—but it begs the question: How many shaves is too many before a blade is past its prime? And what factors contribute to its retirement? We spoke about these things with Fellipe Cardoso, barber at Otis & Finn Barbershop in New York City.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
