Men looking in mirrors

Question:
Is a man allowed to look in a mirror, what about a tefillin mirror?

Answer:

In our day and age when looking in the mirror has become common practice for men and woman alike there is no prohibition for a man to look in a mirror.

 See Rema, Yoreh De’ah 156:2 that in places where men look in the mirror, it is permitted to do so.
