Short or slightly longer my hair always looks groomed with Bumble & Bumble Sumo wax. I’ve been using it for years and really like what it does for my hair.
Recently a friend suggested I buy Acqua di Parma Colonia Powder Soap and now i’m addicted. It’s a real magic product! The powder smells great and also lathers really well in the hands when water is added.
I tend to prefer classic fragrances so Acqua di Parma Colonia Eau de Cologne Spray is right up there for me, its smell is fresh but also long-lasting.
Time can sometimes be precious but generally my grooming mantra is shower, face scrub, shave, moisturise, fragrance, go!
Looking good for me is about feeling good, when I take the time to get a good haircut somehow I feel fresh and pulled together.
