The New Year is upon us and with it, an abundance of new fashions and trends in men’s grooming.
Of course, the classics still stand-up to scrutiny, but time stops for no man and either does fashion.
That is why, if you want to stay abreast of all the latest (and greatest!) men’s grooming tips, you are in the right place. After all, there is much more to looking your best than just a cut and shave.
Without further ado, here are five men’s grooming trends that are set to take the nation by storm in the New Year.
1. Pre-Shave Care
Of course, quick morning shaves will always have their place, but they aren’t the best way to go about your business. Instead, more and more men are realising the value of preparing one of their most valued possessions (their face) for the blade.
When you exfoliate pre-shave, you remove the dead skin and dirt, as well as lifting the hairs. This gives you a cleaner and more comfortable shave.
Shaving oil is another great product which improves the experience. It softens the hairs and takes away some of the negative affects of using a razor on such a sensitive area.
2. Beard Maintenance
If you are just letting your beard grow wild and free, then we have some bad news for you… you’re doing it wrong. Solid facial hair requires maintenance and just like the hair on your head, it should also be styled to look its best.
If you don’t know what a ‘beard wax balm’ is, then your beard is quite simply not reaching its full potential. By using this balm, you stimulate growth, ensure that your skin is hydrated, and guarantee that your facial hair is growing the way it should.
3. Manicures and pedicures
Ignoring your hands and feet isn’t a habit that makes sense to us.
It turns out that there are many Irish men who agree and that’s why manicures and pedicures make this list. Over the past few years, the idea of a man getting one of these treatments has become entirely normalised.
It doesn’t look like this is a trend that is about to disappear any time soon, as we are beginning to realise the value of having our hands and feet looking their best.
4. Full body grooming
With the likes of GQ providing guides on full body grooming, it is hardly surprising that more Irish guys are looking after areas of their body that they previously would have ignored.
Manscaped is another brand that has brought the idea of a full body cut and shave into the mainstream. This trend grew throughout 2021 and it is only going to reach greater heights in 2022.
5. The classics
Like all elements of the beauty industry, there are trends in men’s grooming that come and go and there are ones that stay forever. Professional hairstyling is more than just a trend, but a key ingredient for any man who wants to look his best.
At Men’s Grooming Ireland, we do things differently. Our expert staff undergo a full consultation with you upon arrival and help you decide on a look that you love.
Afterall, 2022 trends involve more than just a cut and a shave. However, a top-quality cut and shave will always be in fashion.
