Dec 19 2017, 6:10 pm

Whether it be bushy beards, manicured mustaches or smooth, clean-shaven cheeks; as fashion changes with the season, so does men’s facial hair.

Regardless of your chosen style of facial fuzz, there are a few simple things that can be done to ensure every look is created and maintained at its best. Jason Culala, of Original Grooming Experts in Toronto, is just one of the many experts who is passionate about helping men to perfect great grooming.

A firm believer that grooming maintenance doesn’t have to be complicated, we asked Cuala to share five grooming basics that all men should know.

1. All facial hair is different

Some men have sparse hair, some fuller; while others are fine and straight, and others thick and curly. The key to grooming is to understand your own needs and find a style that works best with what nature has given you.

2. Invest in quality tools

Good tools, including shavers, scissors, combs and hair products, will help ensure you get great results. Philips has a wide range of shavers and groomers for face, body and head that will keep you looking fresh from head to toe.

3. Be patient

When trying to achieve fuller looks like beards, moustaches or goatees, be patient and know that you have to commit to a certain growth period. A bit of general maintenance around the edges can help keep things tidy during the in-between stage and reduce unruly hairs.

4. Don’t ignore the hair on your body

Body hair grooming is just as important as the style you sport on your face. Look for shavers that come with additional attachments that can take care of down-there hair, like the Philips Multigroom 7000.

5. Become your barber’s best friend

Establishing a good relationship with your barber will help you get guidance on at-home style and maintenance. Get your barber to start you off with a style or shape you can easily maintain at home, and ask for tips on how to do it well.
