Pubic Hair Removal

Got You by the Short and Curlies Big announcement this week. We're launching our new pubic hair trimming service.

We’re not really branching out into the forested realms of pubic hair removal, but we do think this sensitive subject needs to be tackled.

Mellow Vibes from the Huckle Playlist It’s autumn, dude. Has been for three whole days now. About time we hit you with another dose of sweet music from the Huckle playlist then. Gone are those carefree summer times. Afternoons that stretch into evenings into what feels like eternity. Now dawdling dwindles and workers rush home ever quicker.

Dressing for Creative Interviews

Don’t Suit Yourself in the Foot When dressing for a creative interview, don’t wreck your chances by turning up in the wrong clobber. First impressions really do count; people make snap judgements. You might be the best designer since Karl Lagerfeld, but wearing a suit and tie to interview for a creative role could backfire. At best, it looks like you’re trying too hard.
