Groom three ways for summer, with a little help from some style icons and products we like.
1. Clean shave: Steve McQueen
The King of Cool kept it clean for the most part, and while the beard debate rages on the style front, you may want to trim down for practicality’s sake for summer.
Products we like: Captain’s Choice Bay Rum aftershave, $18 at captainschoicestore.com; Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing face wash, $20 at kiehls.com
The razor: We’ve used the Philips Norelco Click & Style ($69.99) for several months, and we love the three detachable, interchangeable heads and the fact that it’s waterproof. The two-headed shaver glides easily and leaves you admirably smooth.
2. Beard maintenance: Bradley Cooper
In American Hustle, Cooper’s curls were unfortunate, but his neatly groomed beard was on-point. He just re-adopted the look (along with 40 pounds of muscle) for his new role in American Sniper.
Products we like: Brooklyn Grooming Fort Greene Classic beard balm, $26 at brooklyngrooming.com; Beard Brand tea tree beard oil, $25 at brooklyngrooming.com
The razor: The Philips Norelco Click & Style‘s beard trimmer allows you to neaten things up to five lengths, from city-slick to aspiring woodsman.
3. Body grooming: Hugh Jackman
The Wolverine star just revealed that he almost nicked himself beyond repair with the superhero’s steel claws, inducing shivers in all of us who groom below the neck. Offscreen, he does a seemingly less calamitous job of keeping his pecs in check.
Products we like: Kiehls Ultimate Man Body Scrub soap, $15 at kiehls.com; Dove Men+Care Ultimate Deep Clean Body and Face Bar, $13 for eight bars at amazon.com
Your razor: The Philips Norelco Click & Style bodygroom attachment is versatile and comfortable—you can face any grooming job below the neck without fear.
