Hair is just another way to express ourselves in the artistic culture we live in. From the Skrillex half-shaved head look, to Katy Perry’s bright hued locks, America has had our share of both great and questionable hairstyles.
Turns out Britain cares about their hair as well! Today’s featured post gives us a glimpse into Britain’s salon habits. It looks like their salon habits are paying off, with Victoria Beckham’s famous inverted bob gaining popularity here in America. In fact, according to today’s infographic, new hair icons have arisen; men look to David Beckham and Mark Wright for hair inspiration, while women look to the ever popular Kate Middleton and Cheryl Cole. Whatever they’re doing across the pond is working, because Britain has never looked so good! [via]

Although male-health awareness month was last month, we here at Daily Infographic wanted to share some info on testicular cancer. Cancer can be a scary thing. It can be an incredibly fast-acting disease if left untreated or unnoticed; but cancer is a preventable disease! This infographic has some great tips for all the guys out there, with a listing of symptoms, prevention methods, treatment options, and the possible effects that this cancer has on one’s libido and fertility.
The first signs of testicular cancer include a swelling or lump on a testicle that may at first be painless. If there is a pain, it will feel dull and have a heaviness to it. Although fewer than 4% of testicular lumps are cancerous, it is much better to be safe than sorry, so check yourself regularly! If you notice any changes in shape or size, and seek medical attention as soon as possible. Treatments vary depending on what stage you’re in, but generally surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy may be necessary. That finally brings us to the sex factor. Cancer treatment can sometimes affect fertility and libido. Talk to your doctor about your options.
Even though this infographic is only about testicular cancer, the thought process for any cancer should be the same. Check yourself regularly and be informed on treatment options!

Today it seems as though you can’t even throw a stone without hitting someone that has a cellphone. I can recall a time when cellphones were HUGE and hardly anyone had one. No one would feel good having one of those huge clunkers now.
The cellphone industry has adapted, changed, and GROWN into a huge industry that provides an outlet for communication, not just locally, but reaches out to the entire world. The desire to get our ideas out there, so easily, has taken many people to great lengths to live their life in a way that informs others of almost everything the individual deems relevant in their life. Apps like facebook, twitter, and pintrest allow users to promote their ideas on a broad scale. These apps and the phones allow people to reach out to those they know, used to know, or will know. That is why everyone and their mother is getting in on the trend.
Moms, dads, even grandparents will even get online and reminisce or catch up on all of the things they missed from each other’s lives. Cellphones, in reality, take us all out of the here-and-now; they can ultimately bring us all together and show us so many new things everyday. You can read a book or watch the news; check out the latest movie out on Netflix; look up movie times or write reviews; share an event on facebook; or make new friends. The world is that much of a smaller place.
Cellphones bring out interconnectedness and a medium to express ourselves with. The ease of getting our hands on such technology yields many opportunities and develops our ability to be that much more resourceful when it comes to finding something out.
It’s no wonder that with all of these technological developments the amount of people with a cellphone has doubled and that 2/3 of people worldwide have a cellphone.

The other day I was out with some friends to watch the final game between the Spurs and the Heat. After the game ended–tragically–I went outside to grab us a table. That was when a guy came up to talk to me. He asked me if I would get tea with him sometime. I don’t usually judge people by their brand of pick-me-up, but I did this time. I simply told him I was more of a coffee drinker myself, and the conversation ended there. But then I started to think about my dream guy, and I quickly came to the conclusion that my dream guy drinks his coffee black.
While this infographic is really just for fun, I do think that the type of coffee you drink says a lot about your personality. For example, I was driving to my house this morning, and I passed a drive-thru Starbucks. Should I stop and get something? Yes, I should. You could just make coffee at home–yeah, but I don’t know if there is enough time. And I want something fancy like a cappuccino–a cappuccino is kinda expensive… I could just get a regular coffee to go. Then I might as well make coffee at home. It’s raining today, maybe a chai latte would be nice… Again, too expensive. This would be the third day in a row you went to Starbucks; you can’t make a habit out of it. So on and so forth went my thought process till I had passed the Starbucks. Now I am drinking a cup of black coffee from my coffee pot at home. [via]

Well folks, it’s that time of year again. The time we all set aside our petty differences and quarrels and wonder where all these giant explosions and aliens/monsters are coming from: big-budget summer blockbuster season! The focus of these big summer action movies typically ranges anywhere from rogue cops to superheroes, but my personal favorite blockbuster genre usually includes some kind of giant thing fighting other giant things, and this year completely knocked it out of the park with Guillermo del Toro’s newest movie: Pacific Rim.
Pacific Rim basically boils down to humanity needing to build colossal, drivable robots (Jaegers) to fend off an onslaught of equally colossal monsters known as “Kaiju” that have surfaced in (you guessed it) the Pacific Rim. Today’s infographic takes a look at the history and evolution of giant movie monsters vs. giant movie robots and what has led us to the incarnations seen in Pacific Rim. The Kaiju that destroy and demolish cities in Pacific Rim have come a long way from their (relatively) humble ancestors such as King Kong and Godzilla, while the nuclear-powered Jaegers could definitely teach Voltron and the Iron Giant a thing or two about being a skyscraper-sized battle bot.
