The Skipper Bar Way, Tips and Tricks

Grooming Tips for Men, The Skipper Bar Way

Male grooming refers to men paying attention to fashion and boosting their own appearance whether in society or their own space.

Personal grooming is the routine of individuals who religiously maintain both their body and appearance. Grooming can include visiting the street corner barber. He uses a paintbrush with methylated spirit to finish off his creation. This can make you feel like running around screaming after he has scrubbed your head with the clipper. All this in the name of getting a so called ‘’A grade’’ professional treatment. We’re not encouraging this pain or discomfort but it has become the norm for men who frequent these experts. Personal groom is normally applied from head to toe – just that much more effort into your hair, face, body and nails! It’s worth your while to step out of your comfort zone and explore ways in which you can enhance the gifts you were given. Many woman appreciate it when their man puts in some effort himself.

Many men started this practice when they realised the variety of benefits in making an effort. Think about arriving for an interview looking polished and on point – it could get you that job. Arriving at a prizegiving, dinner or awards ceremony having made more effort in your appearance has you noticed and looking sharp in all those photos. Let’s face it, spending some time and effort could get you noticed by the one! We cannot deny that first impressions count and working with what you’ve got is a great start. Let’s break some areas you can work on to get the looks and recognition you are aiming for.


Nice Fade or haircut.

Cutting your hair makes it grow healthier and stronger because it removes the hair that would split. The hair at the root is able to grow and you’re able to maintain length and avoid splitting. If you allow split ends to stay on the strand, the hair will continue to split and you’ll never see the length. You can cover up on a sunny day with branded caps or bucket hats from Skipper Bar.
