The Modern Man

Sarah Diller's PhotographsPampering isn’t just for the ladies anymore. Today, it’s not uncommon for a handsome man to have snagged the last waxing appointment for the
day at your go-to salon. More men are making grooming a priority and I believe I speak for the majority of women when I say, “We approve!”

In our annual Men’s Issue, we take a look
at the latest grooming and aesthetic trends among males. From the smartly styled haircut to careful facial enhancements, “Man, You’re Looking Good!” gives you a peek inside the world of aesthetics from this growing phenomenon. Salon owners, top plastic surgeons, and more weigh in on what’s hot and what’s not (p.51).

A large part of looking good on the outside is feeling good on the inside, which isn’t always easy. From tackling Mount Everest to using each minute to prioritize their fitness goals, ve Atlanta men share how they maintain active and healthy lifestyles. Take a page from their book (p.43) when it comes to balancing the responsibilities of career and family, not to mention, the temptation to skip workouts and abandon diets.

Speaking of food, you’ll be ready to devour the nutritious recipes we share in “Lunches to Love.” If you’re in a lunch rut, these creative dishes will add some much-needed flavor and variety to your midday meal. We didn’t forget about the kids either! They won’t even realize they are eating vegetables as they dig into the brightly colored beet hummus or take a produce-packed turkey an cheese wrap to school with them.

We conclude this issue with a My Best Self Q&A with Sean Palani. This foodie founded an inclusive men’s dining group that explores Atlanta’s culinary scene while giving back to local organizations.

If you’re in need of inspiration on how you can make a difference in the community, be sure to explore our Best Cause and Give-Back Guide sections in every issue.

Happy reading,
