Beards are back in a big way, but this doesn’t mean you can leave your facial hair completely unkempt. The modern man’s beard is trimmed and primmed to perfection; however, it’s not just well shaped facial hair that’s trending - men’s waxing is also popular amongst modern day gents. Whether it’s a troublesome monobrow or making sure those chests and backs stay hair-free, men’s waxing will ensure your body is looking its best. If you want to keep your body hair in check, here is a modern man’s guide to personal grooming and hair care.
Men’s grooming tips
Wax regularly: A little waxing is just as effective for men as it is for women. Regular waxing will ensure your unwanted hair is kept in check, even becoming thinner and non-existent with continued treatments. However, make sure to exfoliate regularly with a mitt or loafer to avoid any annoying ingrown hairs!
Keep it conditioned: If you are one of those guys that buys the 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner or uses regular soap to wash your hair - stop. Proper hair care is essential to keeping your hair healthy and in good condition. Whilst many men like to go for the traditional short cut style, this doesn’t mean you can avoid proper hair maintenance. Conditioning your hair will not only make your hair naturally softer and smoother, it will also provide the essential nutrients which are integral to overall hair health. Normals Persons Daily Shampoo and Daily Conditioner are our recommended shampoo and conditioner for men at Kinks Fremantle, and are great products for preventing overproduction of oil!
Tame the strays: Flyaways and stray hairs are a problem for men and women alike. The key to pulling off a polished look and eliminating unwanted strays is to start with conditioner and end with brushing and styling products. Don’t shy away from embracing men’s hair product - a little gel or hair wax can make a world of difference when it comes to men’s hair styling.
Maintain your hairstyle: Whether you’ve gone for the buzz cut or the man bun, you should maintain regular haircuts. This will improve your hair health and make your hair easier to manage and style, especially if you maintain your usual cut.
Don’t do dandruff - Dandruff is a common problem for men, and one which can easily be avoided with the right products in hand (or in hair!). If you are prone to dry scalp and the dandruff that comes with it, a simple dry scalp treatment can work wonders. We recommend Moroccon Oil Dry Scalp Treatment as our go-to product for fighting dandruff.
Know which hair products work for you: Don’t be afraid of a little hair product. This being said, it’s important to note that not all products are as effective as others. If you are unsure which is the best product to use to achieve your desired result, ask our Fremantle hairdressers what they would recommend.
Beard trimming: Facial hair grows at different rates and in different areas. Regular beard trimming is very important for beard hair health, and will actually improve the overall thickness of your facial hair!
