Men’s Grooming Tips

Paul Mitchell Men’s Grooming Tips: Here are some of the answers to your most pressing men’s grooming questions. Armed with this new found knowledge you’ll be able to sift through the labyrinth of Hair Sprays, Gels and lotions to finally find the hair, shave and beard products that are right for you.

What exactly is a pomade? 

Long hair, short hair, curly hair—while pomades are an optimal styler for shorter hair, they’re great for all hair lengths. A pomade is a truly versatile styling aid. From polished slicked back styles, to pompadours and spikey, undone looks.

How do I use a pomade properly?

Wondering how much pomade to use at once? When styling, less is more. Start off with a small amount of pomade you can always add more later and work it evenly throughout your hair. Then, style as desired. 

Why Should I Use Aftershave? 

When it comes to aftershave, it may seem like everyone else knows the drill. But these are fair questions to ask and ones that—you’ll find comfort in this—many other guys are searching for answers to as well. So, what exactly does an aftershave do? As the name suggests and you have probably figured out, an aftershave is designed to be applied after you shave. Once you are done shaving, rinse your face with cold water. 

When Is The Right Time To Apply Aftershave?

This is important. It will ensure that your face is clean and help close your pores—minimizing any dreaded aftershave burning. (An aftershave is designed to soothe, after all.) Then, put a small amount of aftershave in your palms and rub it evenly within them. Very delicately, apply it to your face, working downward. A good aftershave, like our antioxidant-rich Cooling Aftershave, will soothe your freshly shaven face and keep it feeling hydrated. Formulated with barley seed extract, ours also helps minimize the appearance of razor bumps.

What Does A Beard Lotion Do?

Dry skin is never fun to deal with. And, the skin beneath a beard can easily become dry and neglected. A nourishing and conditioning lotion, will help ensure that your face is properly moisturized and feeling great. It’s also great for taming an unruly beard. Depending on your hair type, Beard Oil may be a better option. For thinner facial hair and lighter hydration, a beard oil is an ideal moisturizing choice.

When Should I Use A Dry Paste?

Designed to produce lightweight texture that doesn’t flake, Dry Paste is great for creating cool, undone and lived-in looking hairstyles. With its matte finish, dry paste can be a better styling option for those sweat-inducing summer months or regularly oil-prone hair that may not need added sheen. But it’s a great grooming staple all year round.
