Catwalk shows are the type of events that always take pride of place in any stylish social calendar and the London shows in particular have long been held as one of the main influencers for not only main stream fashion trends, but also for keeping a finger on the pulse of the international beauty and grooming scene. This month it was the turn of the men to take to the catwalk for Men’s SS16 London Collections and these are the top 5 grooming tips we have learnt from Men’s Fashion Week:
1. Go Clean Shaven
If you walk down the street on any given day you are bound to see the majority of men sporting a beard of some intensity or another. However, change might be a foot as beards were few and far between at Men’s Fashion Week and instead clean-shaven faces took centre stage. Brands like Coach even used the clean, glowing faces of their models as a main focus for their aesthetic. If you want to get the clean shaven look then you might want to head to Drakes of London who boast one of the most luxurious hot towel wet shaves in London. If you are going to do it, do it in style. And if you can’t quite stand to get rid of your beard then at least give it a trim up by heading to the experts over at Mr. Rizzo Grooming who will give the professional once over.
2. Control Your Curls
Knowing how to style short curly hair can be somewhat of an issue. Which leads many men into the decision to simply have it trimmed short in order to avoid the hassle of styling. At Men’s Fashion Week we learnt that not only can men’s curls be controlled but that they should actually be embraced. Models at Burberry showed that a long curled style can be simultaneously bohemian and masculine when paired with a sharp suit. To find your signature curly style head to Sanrizz in Knightsbridge who will team you up for a consultation with one of their creative stylists.
3. Embrace Your Natural Hair
Another hairstyle that took centre stage at Men’s Fashion Week was natural afro hair. This is a grooming trend that has moved across from the women’s collections of the last season and a controversial topic that has taken the beauty world by storm. Rather than opting for a buzz cut, men with natural afro hair should take themselves to London’s Junior Green salon who can more creatively style the hair so that it’s natural form can be made the most of. Takes inspiration from Tiger of Sweden’s collections which combine statement afro hair with smart casual looks.
4. Refresh Your Complexion
It is not only hair which looked noticeably groomed at the Men’s London Collections this month. Clear, glowing complexions also made a few appearances on the catwalk and this grooming look is set to be big for SS16. Inspired by the models of J.W Anderson, head to The Gentleman’s Tonic and ask for their Mayfair Rejuvenation Facial. It provides deep exfoliation to clear out impurities and will leave you with bright, youthful and glowing skin that is sure to enhance your everyday look.
5. Bare Your Chest
Taking off your t-shirt is an almost unavoidable moment during the summer time and you have to ask yourself when it happen, are you going to be hairy or not? Quite a lot of men decide to embrace the natural look but all signs indicate that having a smooth chest might be the way forward for next year. If you want to follow in the footsteps of the groomed models of Sean Suen then the great people at The Refinery have a whole host of hair removal options to get you sorted out. From waxing to laser hair removal, they will be sure to find you the right treatment to suit your grooming needs.
