Beard care | grooming for the guys

 

Something for the chaps! When it comes to beard care, you don’t need to spend tons of money to get yourself looking like the best groomed guy in town – just a bit of know-how.

How to: fake a fresh fringe

 

My favourite hair hack ever! I love having a fringe, but it can be fairly high maintenance at times, especially if – like me – you suffer cow licks or curls in your hair which are responsible for you often waking up a la Something About Mary.
