Side note: This blog is in response to the constant complaints from my brother and dad that my previous blogs are of no interest to them. So here you go boys, I hope this makes you happy.
Spending a lot of time and energy on getting ready isn’t something we really associate with men. We tend to think that they don’t really care about their appearance, it’s all too girly. And while that may be true for some, it’s not always the case.
Just like my brother, there are many men out there who are very particular about their facial hair. They aren’t exactly fans of the clean shave, but then again a full, bushy beard won’t do either. So their solution? A jaw covered in strategically trimmed stubble– a task made easy by VS Sassoon VS For Men i-trim™ stubble+ Facial Trimmer.
It has been specially designed to help men control how much hair they sport – whether it’s a short, shadow-type stubble, or a longer, designer length. I’ve been witness to the process many times and, believe me, it’s about as time consuming as getting ready for a girl’s night out.
When it comes to the hair on their heads, I have a good few male friends who spend longer on styling than I do. One of their favourites (yes, their - they gossip about hair products like we do celebs) is Redken for Men Forming Paste Mint Shape. They love that it doesn’t leave their hair looking shiny or feeling hard and sticky.
Likewise, many men are just as concerned with their skincare as women and can be found battling those wrinkles day and night. My dad’s current fave is L’Oreal Men Expert Erase Wrinkles Moisturising Cream.
So, while the myth of the too-manly man who can’t be bothered to groom isn’t exactly dispelled, at least we can all sleep easier knowing we’re not the only ones who give a hoot about how we look.
Do you know any men who take a lot of care in their appearance?
