They walk you home, install shelving units, buy you beers, and support your love of fried food. And they ain’t too bad to look at neither (well, some of them). Ladies, rather than soaking up all that Valentines-related affection, let’s give it up for the male gender. Whether you’re spending the 14th wrapped in a lover’s embrace or partying down with your sisters in arms, I think most of us can appreciate Mr. Right, Mr. Charmingly Flawed, or Mr. Jose Cuervo. To quote Salt ‘N Peppa, as I’m known to do, “whatta man, whatta man, whatta man, whatta mighty good man,” or alternatively, “Brother wanna thank your mother for a butt like that.” Whatever your reason for rejoicing, here’s to the men!

That said, sometimes those gentlemen can be a little wily. Here are some tips for what to expect for your love life this February, and how to prepare for whatever hugs and kisses (or slings and arrows) come your way. The right beauty tool might just get you swept off your feet. Maybe all Ophelia really needed was a deep conditioning treatment.
