We’re Answering Your Top Men’s Grooming Questions
Men's grooming has become a pandora's box of products, accessories, buzz words and beard oil, so we've decided to put you on the right path to finding the best men's hair products that suits you.
1. What's a pomade, and how do I use it?
In a nutshell, it's a styler for all hair types. It's cost effective, versatile and a good one will last all day. Mohawks to slick backs, it's the go-to for a great hairstyle.
When using it, less is more. You don't want to look greasy, and it's easier to add more than remove it if you have too much on. Simply rub it into the palms of your hands, run your hands through your hair, and style it.
2. Should I use aftershave? And when do I apply it?
You're not alone with this question. The name sounds simple, but theres more to it than just slapping it on your face. The purpose of it is to soothe your face after you shave, but if you don't apply it correctly you can end up with the dreaded shaving burn.
The first step is to wash your face with cold water after your shave. This will close the pores, and avoid the burn. Then, put a small amount of aftershave in your palms and rub it evenly within them. Very delicately, apply it to your face, working downward.
3. What's beard lotion? Do I need it?
Beard lotion is great for soothing and nourishing the skin under your beard. It's also great at taming that unruly beard. Feeling dry and a bit like Ned Kelly? Beard lotion might be the right solution for you.
4. I'm thinking of growing a beard. What's the best haircut for a beard?
Firstly, yes. Do it. We congratulate you on your new adventure. Your ideal beard or haircut depends on a number of factors, including your hair type and face shape. Lucky for you, the MVRCK Barber Team put together some fresh beard and hair pairings for your inspiration. As a general rule, you won't want to pair hair and a beard of the same length together.
