Just as your hair should be a reflection inwards and show the kind of person you are, it should also be a reflection outwards of your surrounding environment. Wearing your hair too informally to a formal suit-and-tie event can result in you looking as out of place as if you had worn a singlet.

Stephen is currently the host of a TV show called ‘The Modern Face of Beauty’ and his career has revolved around male grooming and aesthetics for some time now.
