From Haggard Hubby To Head Turner

The interests of the modern man are so diverse, that some guys are more comfortable talking about the benefits of an eye cream than they are discussing the advantages of a 4-3-3 formation. But not every guy is as up to speed on the finer details of a good skincare routine, or the do’s and don’ts of the perfect shave. So if you’re reading this thinking that your guy falls into latter, then I’m here to help you change all that using a ‘Men’s Grooming For Dummies’ approach.

For some of you a ‘clean cut’ look isn’t high on your wish list, but a grooming routine doesn’t mean your guy has to turn into a carbon copy of Mark Wright from TOWIE – you can still do rugged without crows feet and dry skin. The benefits of taking care of your hair, skin and general appearance are (literally) there for all to see. If you can subtly nudge your guy into a respectable grooming routine, then it could change not only his appearance, but his self confidence too.

Let’s talk product
When it comes down to it, your plan to get him in tip top shape is nothing without the right products. So to lend a hand I’ve selected the best products from to ease him in gently, and ensure that he’s left with a high performance routine he’s likely to stick with.

1. Redken For Men Go Clean Shampoo
A lookmantastic best seller, Go Clean is a ‘do-it-all’ shampoo that cleans fast, removed product and invigorates his scalp. Building strength and structure to keep his hair healthy, you’ll notice a marked improvement whatever his style.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit.
