Is there a masculine way to say "tease my hair"?

I've been blessed with a full head of hair, and for lack of a better word, I "tease" my hair in the morning to give it a full, lush effect. Whenever I use the word "tease," my bf ribs me because he thinks it's a feminine term. Any way to say this in a more masculine way?

just own it, sister

comb your hair?

brush your hair?

why the fuck would you ever say that?

Even the phrase 'back combing' doesn't explain why you would do this if you have a full head of hair?

Go tease your ass.

If you have a full head of hair, why do you need to make it fuller?

Shake your head dahling!

Just say "blast," as in "I have to blast my hair."

But brush would cover the description you seek, OP.

And if you want to rat your hair out to make it poofy, who are we to judge?

Yeah, I think it's a lost cause if you even know what "tease my hair," means.

by Anonymousreply 1109/20/2013

"Fix" or "do".

There's always, "volumnizing."

Then again you could just stop worrying about it and be the fabulous queen you so obviously are.

Of course it's feminine, as are you. Dudes brush their hair. Nelly queens "tease" their hair for a "lush" effect.

This thread brought back a long-lost memory.

I was mother's chosen advisor on many things. She'd ask me watch her tease her hair before work, then ask, "Did I miss anything in the back?"

Me: "Right here.." Then stick my finger there...resulting in more teasing.

Mom: "How about now?"

This tread made me laugh.

Teasing your hair is just going to piss it off and is a form of bullying.

by Anonymousreply 1909/20/2013

It gets better, OP's hair.

by Anonymousreply 2009/20/2013

OP's hair should suck it up and be a man.

Being teased builds character!!!

DAMN, warn a guy before you do that.

OP, it's only going to get worse.

What is this teasing, exactly? Call me old fashioned, but men over 30 with a full head of hair should have a part, preferably on the side. Are you walking around with a big poof of teased out hair? Who do you look like? Name a celebrity from any era. I'm really curious.

OP: You give your hair more volume.

The need to tease your hair is a strong indicator that you will be having gender reassignment surgery within a year.

Mary, go to a barber and ask for a "regular." This is the haircut that George Clooney has and is appropriate for most men.

You can either comb it or mess it up a little.

Comb out

Shake you can pretend it's to clear your ears of water after your shower.

Is it "teased," down there?

That sounds great for an attention whore, R27. Are you an attention whore?

by Anonymousreply 3409/20/2013

OP (see link) it's not what you say that gives you away.

Wendy Williams has cute word for this, that is even more fem than "tease". I cant spell it though, it ends with a "uzz" sound

by Anonymousreply 3709/20/2013

Buzz cuts are awesome, R32, sorry I meant full and longer hair. A man's hair should have shape is all I meant. Pompadours, fauxhawks, even, if not a classic men's cut. Even slicked back, pulled into a ponytail or shaved into a Mohawk. I'm really not a hair nazi, but men don't look good with teased out poofy hair. I'm picturing Sigfried and Roy, Barry Manilow and, yes, Richard Simmons, or the various Caucasian 'fros. Bad.

One of my earliest memories is of my Mom, standing at the mirror, rating her hair.


by Anonymousreply 3909/20/2013

How about "mocking?" You're mocking your hair. Or maybe you're harassing it. Making fun of it?

Or if you're British, you could be taking the piss out of it.

In keeping with hair, can anyone recommend a good styling product/pomade that doesn't crunch or stiff the hair?

by Anonymousreply 4409/21/2013

No there isn't. There's also no masculine way of saying "tiramisu"

by Anonymousreply 4509/21/2013

OP, it's called getting you hair LAYED, hunty! Like fish!

by Anonymousreply 4609/21/2013

Consider "fluff up."

by Anonymousreply 4809/21/2013

You "sort it out" in a suitably manly fashion OP.

Or if it's having an especially bad day, you may administer justice to it

by Anonymousreply 5009/22/2013

Use bully or ridicule.

You're so full of shit, OP.

If you had a full head of hair, you wouldn't need to tease it!
