I caught this great slideshow in GQ, Put Your Best Face Forward, offering tips on how guys can keep up with appearance without too much trouble. They’re right guys, there’s nothing wrong with taming those brows if they’re starting to get a little bushy, or you suffer from a unibrow. GQ’s tips are spot on, but I thought I’d share what I keep in my grooming kit. First start with a cool toiletry bag, just to man up that stuff. I have this awesome leather bag Kiehl’s made with West Coast Choppers’ Jesse James. It’s no longer available, but a good example of where you can go with this. The important part though is having some quality tools in there that, as they mention in the GQ article, you keep just for certain tasks like your brows and nose hairs. I use Denco tools of course. They are professional quality and cost less than what GQ is suggesting (ie. Rubis, WÜSTHOF). The round tip scissors, as they mention, are excellent because your face is the last place you want to accidentally stab with a pair of pointy scissors! I like these round tipped Denco 4110 scissors. They’re made in Italy and feature a curved blade so you can keep that tip pointed away from your skin. A lot of guys are going with the full beard these days, yours truly included. For that I suggest Denco 4104, 4½” Beard & Barber Scissors for quick, effective beard trimming. The sharp blades and smooth action will make it a pleasure for you to keep your facial hair well groomed. For the mustache, Denco’s 4102 Mustache Scissors & Comb Set is a convenient combination of our 4101 Mustache Scissors and a fine-tooth comb. The comb is made in France and features sturdy, rounded teeth that will not scratch your skin or get tangled in your facial hair. The Italian hand-ground scissors cleanly and smoothly trim any stray hair for a polished, perfectly groomed look. The last, but definitely not least, important component you’re going to need in the kit is some top notch tweezers! Denco has a lot of great tweezer choices, but for guys I recommend Denco’s 4863 Big Gripper Tweezer. They’re made in Italy of high quality stainless steel and feature precision slant tips. The reason I suggest these for guys though, is the oversized handle design. The cushioned rubber insert makes this tweezer comfortable to use and secure to hold with your big man fingers. Remember to clean your tools when you’re finished though. The best way to clean your scissors and tweezers is basically to wipe them down with a dry towel. That’s it! Throw all that stuff in your manly man grooming bag and you’re good to go.
