The men’s grooming industry is one of the fastest growing worldwide, with men (no kidding) now eclipsing women in spending on grooming products. While nobody’s recommending a spray tan or any misadventures with guyliner (leave that to Keith Richards for up-all-night rock star glamour) there’s something to be said for indulging in an old-school experience – a barbershop trim and wet shave, complete with hot towel face wrap – for the slew of Holiday events.
Add a hint of Tom Ford Men’s Cologne and a slick of hair styling spray, possibly the British import Murdock’s bracingly Sea Salt-scented, and you’ll be fittingly spruced up.
There’s also something to be said for the quiet joy of shoe shining. Yes, we said j-o-y. To give or receive, beautifully crafted shoe shine kits can serve dual purposes. While putting a bang-up gleam on one’s boots, indulge in the contemporary guy’s version of stress relief therapy.
