Once upon a time, not so long ago, the very idea of men spending time and good money tending to their body hair was unthinkable.
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. Likewise, it’s probably not in your best interest to spend an hour working on the perfect formal style for a simple trip down to the shops.
We all know that keeping yourself “Rugged, Yet Smooth” takes time and effort. Sure, you can roll out of bed and greet the world with your shaggy hair, wild beard, and natural musk, but you might not get the positive attention you’re after.
We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Stephen Handisides, an international TV presenter, model and, most importantly for us, an expert in male grooming. 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.
With summer looming, millions of we gents are making travel plans.
Wherever you’re going, sitting on a plane, train, or boat for hours and hours tends to leave you looking and feeling past your best. Even if you start your trip without a single strand out of place, you’ll still probably look like a scruffy shadow of your former self by the time you reach your destination.
