Whether you’re rocking a beard, or opting for a clean, crisp look, male grooming is an important matter. It’s not just up to the ladies to look great. If you’re after some grooming tips, look no further.
Hair trends change continuously, and the good news is that 2016 offers a broad spectrum of trendy styles. Opt for a traditional clean-cut style, or embrace the start of festival season with a cool, dishevelled look. Match your hairstyle to your personality and don’t be afraid to be different. Sometimes, it’s good to stand out from the crowd, rather than blend in. If you’re eager to tick off the trends, and you fancy yourself as a bit of a chameleon, look at sites like Instagram. Flick through style magazines and look for ideas, which will suit your face shape and your individual tastes. Keep on top of hair appointments and adopt a hair care regime. You don’t need to go overboard with a cupboard full of products, but make sure you shampoo and condition your hair on a regular basis. If you have long locks, book a trim every 6-8 weeks.

Beards are big business in 2016. Whether you’ve opted for clean lines or a rugged, overgrown look, beard maintenance is essential. You facial hair can become dry and brittle, just like your hair, so take steps to nourish and protect it. Gently massage in a few drops of beard oil to keep facial hair looking healthy and glossy. You can also use products to shape your beard.
If you’re a fan of a clean shave, always prepare your skin. Shaving can irritate the skin and make it itchy and sore. If you’re wet shaving, apply a layer of shaving foam before you begin. Make sure every area is covered. Use fluid movements to glide the razor over the contours of your skin gently. If you have sensitive skin, look out for specially designed products, which minimise the risk of irritation.
Some people may be blessed with brows, which need very little attention. On the flip side, if you’ve got oversized or wayward brows, they may need taming. You don’t have to book monthly waxing or threading sessions if you don’t fancy undergoing pain to look good. But a gently trim or pluck from time to time won’t go amiss. Remove hairs from the centre of the brow line to avoid a monobrow and try and shape the brows to complement the shape of your face. Often removing just a few hairs can make a major difference. If you’re confident in your own abilities with the tweezers, enlist the help of a friend or partner. Alternatively, you could visit a brow bar or a beauty salon.
Devoting time to looking good is important for the modern man. If you’re eager to up your game, follow these simple grooming tips. You don't need to go crazy and draw up a daily schedule, but a little bit of preening can make all the difference.
