What To Do When They Stare At You

by Bill Alley, Broadcast Host, Producer and Beard Advocate

Given a bit of thought, each of us may gaze upon someone that fetches our eyes. Human nature and our own innate desires, biases, traits and tastes will shift gears when attraction hits. As men, we’re the breed that might get accused more often at ogling, and the reasons are endless as much as they are random. Women will remind us about the habit when they’re sensing your focus off them and onto something or someone.

Genius of the Beard


Leonardo da Vinci, born in Italy in 1452, was the essential “Renaissance Man” whose scope of knowledge included invention, painting, sculpture, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography. Although he made copious notes his findings were never published. His portrait of Mona Lisa, painted in 1506, is perhaps the most iconic work of art ever created.

From our continuing series on the Distributors and Shops where Beardsley products are found worldwide. Bill Alley is our moderator.

BA: As the art of styling and grooming perfection is legendary in Italy, it is no surprise that Original Toiletries reveals a wide range of products for the refined person. What is surprising is your division’s recent start in distribution appears as professional as a competitor would be with many years in operation. What led Francesco (founder of OT) to provide Rome and vicinity a new choice in up-market shaving, hair and beard products?

OT: After more than ten years in the same sector as distributors of the most exclusive men’s grooming brand, the step of opening a direct point of sale was an opportunity that we could not miss and that due to our experience came naturally.
