While it was most definitely ladies night at this year’s Golden Globes, the men also dressed in black and certainly stepped up their red carpet grooming game. Traditional black-tie looks, clean-shaven mugs, and perfectly parted hair will always be considered winning award show attire. We see you Seth Meyers, and we approve.
But when it comes to the Globes, actors, or more likely the stylists dressing them, usually have a little more freedom to personalize their look. This year to show support for the #TimeIsUp movement and as to not outshine the women on the red carpet, it seems most men kept their put-togethers pretty safe. However, it was a big night for men’s facial hair.
When it comes to red carpet grooming it’s fine to rock long hair, a beard or a mustache. But, it’s important to keep the look elegant, and product is the key. To get your facial hair ready for prime time, have the usual supplies on hand. Get a good beard comb, trimmer, conditioning beard wash, beard oil and mustache wax. And yes, they are crucial. Trust us, beardruff flakes on your designer tuxedo doesn’t make for a polished black tie look. You’ll also need to make sure that the hair on your face and the hair on your head are working together harmoniously to best showcase your movie star looks. Need inspiration?
