This one is for the men today.
I know a lot of us are struggling with our fades growing in. Lord knows I’ve thought about shaving my head several times a day for the past month. The hairs around the ears are actually now touching our ears and our neck hair is connecting to our back hair. We are all on the verge of shaving our heads.
But during this time, get those trimmers out and ask your quarantine buddy to do some detailing around those ears and trim up that neckline! The best advice I can give you is to not go crazy with the clippers and just follow your natural hairline. Don’t cut any more than you need to.
Now facial hair - if you are rocking a beard, you know what to do. And if you’re growing a quarantine stache or beard, trimming and maintaining will help you look a lot less like Tom Hanks in “Castaway”. I always trim my client’s beards like the Spartans in the cinematic masterpiece that is “300” - short in the cheeks and longer to the chin.
Clean up the “neard” - the rule of thumb is to actually use your thumb. Lay your thumb sideways above your adam's apple and that is where your neck line should begin.
Using great products are key to maintaining a handsome look. At Salon Society our eco-friendly line Kevin Murphy has the killer K.Men's line. Everything from shampoos and conditioners, to all sorts of styling pastes,waxes and pomades.
Styles available in the salon can look the same at home if you use what we use and follow our advice. If you're struggling, don't be afraid to reach out. When my clients are in my chair I walk them through the steps and make it easy and accessible to maintain at home.
