The Modern Man: Essential Styling and Grooming Tips for Men

Be honest, guys: what does your self-care routine look like on a daily basis? Maybe you splash your face with cold water in the morning, brush your teeth, run some gel through your hair, put on deodorant, and you’re out the door. Or perhaps your routine is a little more involved, and you’ve got a skincare routine and an elaborate shower process, too. Either way, one thing is certain: grooming is just as important for men as it is for women and it’s not something you can skimp out on.

But the problem is that many men aren’t sure where to start or simply don’t prioritize their grooming habits beyond the basics. But all that is about to change as we share our top grooming tips for men! 

After all, more and more men are turning to salons rather than traditional barbers for a more comprehensive and pampering experience, and we fully support this practice. Men deserve some pampering too and the experience they’ll get at a spa like Anushka is simply unparalleled not only by barber shops but by other salons and spas too. 

Styling and Grooming Tips for Men in 2024

And the benefits of adopting a grooming routine go far beyond just how you look. It can kick your confidence into high gear, improve your overall hygiene and health, and even make you more attractive to others. Not to mention, you’re worth spending those few extra minutes on each day and spending time on yourself the way you’re willing to do for others. 

However, many men haven’t been taught anything beyond rudimentary grooming habits. But fear not because we will go far beyond the basics today and get into the details of skincare, haircare, body care, and other grooming habits that can transform your looks, self-confidence, and well-being. 

No matter your age, style, or skin type, our goal for these grooming tips for men is to help you look and feel your best every day.

A Detailed Skincare Routine for Men

So, let’s dive into our top grooming tips for men, starting with skincare. Yes, guys, you should be taking care of your skin too! And no, it doesn’t have to involve a complicated 10-step routine. Just a few simple steps can make all the difference in keeping your skin healthy and glowing.

  • Cleanse: Start by washing your face with a cleanser designed for your skin type (for example, oily, dry, or combination) every morning and night to remove dirt, sweat, and excess oils that clog your pores and cause breakouts.
  • Exfoliate: Use an exfoliating scrub or facial brush a few times a week to buff away dead skin cells and unclog your pores for a smoother complexion.
  • Moisturize: Don’t skip this step! Applying a moisturizer after cleansing and exfoliating can help keep your skin hydrated, soft, and youthful-looking.
  • Sunscreen: Protect your skin from Florida’s strong U.V. rays using a daily moisturizer with SPF or applying sunscreen before heading outdoors.
  • Eye cream: The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to wrinkles, so using an eye cream can help hydrate and prevent signs of aging.

More and more men are also turning to Botox and filler, and the results can be incredibly natural. So, don’t write off this option until you’ve consulted with us, and we can show you some examples of how natural, yet impactful, the results can be. 

Hair Care Tips for Men

Next up, let’s talk about hair care. Maybe you have a full head of luscious locks or a simple buzz cut; taking care of your hair is necessary for a clean, polished appearance.

  • Shampoo and Conditioner: Find a shampoo and conditioner that works for your hair type (oily, dry, thick, thin) and use them regularly to keep your hair clean and healthy.
  • Haircuts: Regular trims are necessary to maintain the shape of your haircut and keep it looking fresh. Plus, who doesn’t love a trip to the barber for some pampering?
  • Styling: Use hair products like pomades, waxes, or gels to style your hair and keep it in place throughout the day. Don’t overdo it, though, as too much product can make your hair look greasy.
  • Brushing/Combing: Invest in a good quality brush or comb to keep your hair tangle-free. This also helps spread natural oils throughout your hair for a healthy shine. The right kind for you will depend on your hair type, so check in with your hair stylist for a tailored recommendation.
  • Scalp Care: Your scalp is just as vital as the hair on top of it. Use a gentle scalp scrub or massage with your fingertips to remove buildup and promote circulation for healthier hair growth. It’s also worth adding an anti-dandruff shampoo to your routine if you notice any flaking.

Shaving and Facial Hair Grooming Tips for Men

A surefire way to enhance your grooming game is by keeping your facial hair in check. Whether you prefer a clean shave or a well-trimmed beard, here are some tips to help you out.

  • Shaving: Use a sharp razor and shaving gel or cream to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. Don’t forget to apply aftershave or moisturizer afterward to soothe the skin.
  • Beard care: If you have a beard, invest in a good quality trimmer to keep it at your desired length. Don’t forget to wash and condition your beard regularly to keep it soft and healthy.
  • Moustache maintenance: Keep your moustache in shape by trimming stray hairs and using wax or balm to style it.
  • Eyebrow grooming: Men can (and should) groom their eyebrows too. Pluck any stray hairs for a clean and polished look.
  • Ingrown hair prevention: To prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate your skin regularly and always shave in the direction of hair growth.

We can’t overstate the importance of choosing high-quality beard and facial hair care products. Look for products specifically designed for men’s skin and hair. Often, they include ingredients like essential oils and natural extracts to nourish the hair and skin.

Nail Care

Even if you’re not into manicures, taking care of your nails is a huge part of overall grooming. You only get one chance to make a first impression, and if you have unkempt or even unclean nails, this can send a message that you don’t pay attention to details.

Here are some quick tips for keeping your nails in tip-top shape:

  • Trim them regularly with clippers or a nail file. Make sure the edges are smooth and even.
  • Keep your nails and hands clean by washing them regularly with soap and water.
  • Use hand cream to prevent dryness and hangnails.

Oral Hygiene

Oral hygiene is another critical component worth including in these grooming tips for men. Beyond the basics of brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash, what else can you do to ensure your mouth is in tip-top shape? Clean teeth and fresh breath are also things that can make or break a first impression, so it’s worth getting it right!

Here are some things to keep in mind for maintaining good oral hygiene:

  • Don’t skip those regular dental cleanings and checkups to spot any issues before they become bigger problems and to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.
  • Use a metal or plastic tongue scraper to remove any bacteria or residue from your tongue. These are relatively inexpensive but can make a huge difference.
  • Invest in an electric toothbrush and a water dental flosser for more thorough cleaning.
