Growing in popularity throughout 2018 are the male grooming rituals and routines we now see in order to achieve the “perfect look”.
The demand from the styling and beauty industry has made sure that everyone now wants part of the action, whether visiting a traditional barber shop or purchasing the tools needed for a DIY job!
The growing popularity of male grooming
These rituals and routines have grown in popularity and have been made more public over the past few years primarily due to the number of reality shows now airing. Showing what many of us have known for years; many men take just as much pride and effort in their appearance as women. Shows such as Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea have highlighted traditional barbering techniques and made it not just popular but accepted that this is part of an everyday beauty routine.
Secondly, the trend to revert to a traditional barber has also increased due to the number of celebrities now sporting more defined hairstyles, grooming rituals and beauty regimes.
For example, a man that never fails to keep up and set the latest trends is David Beckham. Posting Instagram snaps at some of his favourite barbers, showing the traditional tools and blades used for that real fine and smooth cut – all help to raise the profile and set a clear trend.
There’s also the trend of the beard; big with men at the moment, from Justin Timberlake to Tom Hardy all sporting a new look, which includes a very carefully shaved and styled beard. And of course, the best way to make sure you can achieve this perfect look? Traditional barbering.
Traditional barbering is also seen to raise tribute to tradition. Fashion develops and evolves through tradition and learning over the years. It can focus on elements being taking, amended and suited to the trends and styles we then come to see today.
