Grooming on the Go


Grooming on the Go


In today’s high pace busy lifestyle, it has become a constant challenge to maintain a well-groomed sharp look. It can also become overwhelming to make sense on the amount of advice, opinion and small jars filled with expensive products on the market. The trick isn't to spend a fortune on lots of different goods or to lock yourself in the bathroom for hours at a time. Rather, you should develop a daily routine focused on maintenance, ensuring you don't let yourself down with unsightly hair. Here are a few guidelines on how to groom on the go.

Become a Regular at your Barbershop – It’s highly recommended to book a haircut appointment every 4 weeks. That adds up to 13 visits a year. It becomes too easy to fall into a trap of unbridled hair. If you find it a chore having to tame your hair in the morning, more than likely it’s time for a snip. Proactive is a better approach to reactive.

The Right Product for the Right Job – Hair Products have come a long way since Granddad’s good old wax & pomade. It’s important to know what kind of hair type you have. Thinner hairs require a lighter product like sprays & light lotion.

Tame the Facial Beast – Just like cutting grass it’s easier to maintain when it’s short and consistent opposed to overgrown and weed filled. Get into the habit of performing a facial trim on your signature look once or twice a week depending on complexity. Invest in a good beard & neck trimmer.

Wash Your Face Before Bed – A lot of people can’t sleep without having a clean slate before bed. Especially if your days provide a heavy buildup of grime. Use cold water & allow time for your pores to breathe.

Don’t Forget the Nose & Ears – It is easy to only focus on the face when grooming. Nothing says noticeable quite like overgrown nose & ear hair. Make sure to trim those as needed to keep the creatures back in their cave.
