how to groom your guy

The answer is yes! Guys will listen to their girl's recommendations when it comes to grooming and haircare. So if you want him to take a step up from his Axe gel, we’ve got a list of great products for you to choose from that will add texture and control to your man’s ‘do.

Hans de Fuku has a broad spectrum of waxes, creams and pomades that I guarantee he will love.

surf spray from Bumble and Bumble

My next fave would be Sumo tech by Bumble and Bumble, which is your best option for a non-greasy textured look.

For that long-haired look like the one I’ve done on Brad Pitt, use the surf spray from Bumble and Bumble. It’s great for when you stay over at his place and need something for your hair, but don’t want him to think you’ve moved in and need your own drawer.

For a really fresh-smelling paste, try the Number 4 hair care texture styling crème. You can’t go wrong with this one. It has a great light hold and is 100 percent vegan and sulphate-free for the eco-conscious man.

One more final product your guy will love is the Phyto Fiber paste. This is an essential product!

If your man also needs some new skin care products, you can’t go wrong with Recipe for Men’s entire treatment line. It’s tailored for your man’s personal care but you can definitely benefit from it as well!

The bottom line?

All in all, you'll want to make sure your boyfriend has a bathroom stocked with products that will help create a great modern look but that have just enough flexibility to help you benefit from them, too! You can simply recommend these products to your guy or be a little creative and get him a little care package. He’ll really appreciate it -- trust me.

Hope you’ve been wearing your sunscreen, hats and sunnies. I’m off to the Hamptons for the gay wedding of the year! Get ready for my Labor Day breakout hair looks article, coming soon!
