The Gentleman’s Grooming Arsenal

Men’s Grooming is no longer a word whispered in a dark corner, says James Hellyer from James Daniel Hadleigh

We work harder and longer than we ever have so why shouldn’t we take better care of ourselves to ensure we look and feel our best? The stigma that was once attached to male grooming is most defiantly a thing of the past.

We have a much larger range of top quality products readily available. We have images of ’beautiful’ celebs on red carpets and St Lucian beaches thrust in front of our eyes on a daily basis. I can tell you now that 99% of them will be using the vast amounts of products to their advantage.

In the past a gentleman’s bathroom cabinet would’ve consisted of soap and old spice. Now, there are five essential items every man should have by his side whether stowed away in the bathroom cabinet or thrown in the suitcase for a business trip.

A good quality zingy cleansing shampoo will wake up even the sleepiest of gents in the morning and get rid of the previous days build-up. Conditioner will give you a real refreshing buzz but also leave your hair soft and manageable. Don’t go without a premium face wash to cleanse away the grime that collects on our skin over the course of a busy day. Face wash will leave your skin feeling lovely and clean. Follow with a moisturiser that you can use after face wash every day that isn’t going to leave your skin oily. Finish your morning regime with a salon quality hair product that suits your hair and haircut, and is a must in every man’s armory. If you have a really good barber doing a top job and you’re not using the right products then you’re not getting the most out of your cut.

These will make such a difference to how you feel within yourself but also others will see a new more alive and alert you. Each day in our salon we see gentleman of all ages, sizes and positions within our society open up to these ideas and start to take that extra little care of themselves. And why shouldn’t we? Our significant others have been doing it longer than we can remember and we think they always look attractive, so if you can’t beat them join them.
