what are some male grooming options for the face?
Many men are lightly removing hair around their eyes and grooming their beards instead.
For eyebrow areas, men can choose to wax, but threading and sugaring are also popular. Both trends have seen an increase recently. Threading involves a thin (cotton or polyester) thread that is doubled then twisted. It is rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair.
Sugaring, sugar waxing or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. Sugaring (epilation) is often compared to standard waxing. During the process, a sugaring substrate sticks to and essentially removes hair without attaching to the skin. The substrate can be applied at room temperature or heated to a lukewarm temperature, minimising the risk of burns. For this reason, sugaring is generally preferred over waxing when it comes to removing hair from larger areas of skin. If someone has sensitive skin, sugaring can nevertheless result in skin irritation and reaction but this can be said of waxing as well.
Now that you’ve groomed your face nose up, what do you do with your beard?
Be patient. Hair needs time to grow. Your only responsibility is to make sure it is not unruly unless you want it this way. Normally after 4-6 weeks hair will grow out and by then it’ll have evened out. You can then pick a style based on your hair density. A barber will use a straight razor to line it and in the beginning, you’ll want to show that beard as much TLC as you can. Remember boys, match your beard to your face, seek a professional barber to make sure your beard suits you 100%, invest in a quality trimmer for home use and on occasion if you want to dress up your beard, try beard oil.
