The Pace of Modern Living.
Getting a haircut is pretty much a life changing experience. A significant amount of weight drops off your shoulders and you start to look fabulous again… If it’s done right, of course. *giggles* Ever since I moved to London, I struggled to find the right barber who would really understand my grooming needs. *hashtag needy-queen* When it comes to hairstyles, I’m very precise. I like to keep things simple and a bit different at the same time. I believe that most barbers just go with what’s trending. So, I’m on a quest to find someone who thinks outside of the (hairy) box.
Back in June, I met Joe Easton from Man Made London. During London Fashion Week Men’s, Joe was working alongside Cornerstone to provide the best wet shaving experience to visitors of The Century Club. As someone who has no idea how to shave, this was the perfect opportunity to get some expert advice.
From the moment we met, Joe knew exactly what style works with my jaw line. He used hot towels infused with essential oils to open up the pores. Then, scrub and shave using Cornerstone’s signature razor blades. The whole experience was very relaxing and I (obviously) wouldn’t mind doing that everyday.
The Conscientious Gentleman.
Following our meeting at The Century Club, I reached out to Joe to enquire for the ultimate Man Made London experience. It was the early morning of Laura’s (@laura.works) big day – the wedding. Therefore, I was looking to go for a simple hairstyle and finally find out what sort of products work well with my hair. *feels lost* In the past couple of years, my hair got slightly thinner which is a dream come true to my mum who is a hairdresser. It’s about time I make most of what I have got left, literally!
During my appointment, Joe suggested that I should use Texture Salt Spray to add thickness and definition to my hair, then blow dry it to give that 2nd day feel. To finish off my look, Joe recommended Man Made’s own No. 4 Cream to give a light but long-lasting hold. The cream adds natural shine and control, and is completely paraban free! *swish swish*
Man Made London is a place that goes way beyond just a barber shop. It’s a professional environment that resembles a private members club. An institution where men of class and sass can enjoy a drink in a sophisticated setting. Also, there’s an in house Aesthetic Clinic for those who look to enhance their looks a little bit more. * wink wink* I’m currently looking to buy their bundle packages. For instance, you can get 6 haircuts for the price of 5! *happy dance* See the full price list here.
