During the month of November, you may notice more men sporting the beard look. “Movember” is a popular movement where men all over the world grow out their beard or mustache during the month of November. The goal is to bring awareness to men’s health.
We’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite barbershops in The Woodlands where you can get help with beard upkeep. But first, a few tips for keeping your facial hair looking sharp!
Facial Hair Tips
Stylists at Boardroom Salon in The Woodlands are experts at helping men look their best. They recommend using facial oils on your skin and facial hair as you are growing out your hair. Products like the MP 10 Nourishing Oil are ideal as a leave-in conditioner and grooming aid for facial hair including beard, mustache or goatee.
KEEP UP THE MAINTENANCE.
Just because you are “growing out” your facial hair, doesn’t mean you just let it go all month long without any attention. In fact, now may be the most important time to seek expert advice. Experts from Boardroom Salon recommend using the proper tools for trimming and grooming your hair and skin. Using a shaving brush helps to lift and soften the hair on your face allowing for a closer, more comfortable shave. It also adds heat to the skin during the shaving process which helps open pores and lubricates the skin.
The most important step to establishing healthy skin and a healthy facial hair routine is to moisturize. A face draped with the perfect beard will always require just as much moisture as a clean-shaven face.
CONSIDER A FACIAL.
A professional facial can help ease razor irritation and provide deep pore cleansing and toning. Facials help maintain hydration and protect and restore the skin. This is true for the clean-shaven face and for someone with facial hair. Places like Hand & Stone Massage, The Woodhouse Day Spa and Body Benefits Day Spa offer facial treatments for men and women.
