ULTIMATE GUIDE TO MEN'S HAIR
Hands up lads – how many of you struggle with taming that beastly barnet?! I know I sure do! No matter what type of hair you have, you’re going to need some help in looking a cut above the rest. The first stop on your way to hair god status has got to be a decent barber and I have found just the one you need in your life! Allow me to introduce you to Jack The Clipper.
Established in 1996 by London’s first and biggest family of Turkish Master barbers; Jack The Clipper has become a household name in the community, renowned for making Londoners look sharp and feel special. From stylish and on trend cuts to beard trims, hot wax treatments and eyebrow threading – these lads have got you covered! Whether you know the look you desire or need some creative guidance, the master barbers will design and refine your hair with pinpoint precision. I, myself went for the ‘Chamber 88’ experience at their stunning Bow Lane location. Chamber 88 is a bespoke lounge for treatments by barbers who have at least 15 years of blood, sweat and hairs in their resumé! The experience is out of this world and doesn’t cost an awful lot considering the amount of pampering you receive – open bar (with the best whiskeys, gins, champagnes), an amazing setting in the basement of their Bow Lane shop, hair style, trim, hot towel, shave, facial, massage, eyebrows – I didn’t want to leave the chair! To top it off they use some seriously good products which smell out of this world and leave you feeling mighty fresh mincing out onto the streets of London! This is an experience you’ll want to repeat over and over again.
TOP PICK: BEARDBRAND'S SEA SALT SPRAY
Sure, a knowledgeable barber is a must, but using the right products on your hair is similarly important. Men’s hair products have come a long way and there’s something for everyone – whether your hair is thick, thin, curly, wavy, or whatever. Sea salt spray is a relative newcomer to the world of styling products and has quickly become a go-to product for many men; particularly those with medium to long hair. Your first step is to purchase a quality, all-natural spray such as Beardbrand’s Sea Salt Spray. Beardbrand’s spray is unique in that it contains white clay (kaolin) that’s great for sensitive skin and also acts as a natural scalp cleanser. It doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, or any other harmful junk. Simply spray into the hair whilst it’s still damp, power up your hairdryer and style your hair as normal – et voila – you’ll be looking every inch the style god you always knew you could be!
