The male groom market started with simple products like deodorants, hair gels and aftershaves but now includes moisturisers, concealers, facials, manicures, pedicures, tanning and spa treatments. Here are some tips on how to become the perfectly groomed modern man.
Get Professional Help
It’s important to find a product tailored to your specific concerns. You’re not going to combat acne prone skin with hand soap, and likewise you have no hope of boosting thinning hair with a drugstore shampoo – you need targeted professional products.

Change your Styling Options
Consider if your choice of styling product is right for you. It’s great to have two or three products at one time. Ask your barber or stylist to try out a new product next time you go in for a trim, and opt for one of the tried and tested hair products they use to improve your styling cred.
- For holding, shaping and defining your style
- To add thickness and shine
- For a sleek and shiny wet look
- For freezing, sculpting or molding
Back to the Basics
With hundreds of products and routines, it’s easy to forget about the basics. Taking care of the basics of good grooming should be compulsory for a modern gentleman.
- Keep your nails trimmed and clean.
- Trim hairs from your nose, ears, neck and eyebrows.
- Invest in a good-quality, non-disposable razor, shave brush and good-quality shaving cream.
- A bit of fragrance goes a long way, just make sure it isn’t over-applied.
It doesn’t have to be every month and it doesn’t have to be a weekend getaway at the spa, but there’s nothing wrong with indulging in a little luxury. There’s nothing emasculating about improving your complexion, or having a relaxing massage.
