Grooming Artist News Roundup: September 2017

Autumn heralds a bounteous season for gentlemanly pursuits. The casual shorts and breezy shirts of summer are replaced by a noticeably more grown-up and structured wardrobe. We switch out our zesty shaving creams for something richer, darker, smokier (more on that in the links below). As such, this Grooming Artist Roundup is dedicated to celebrating the new season.

We begin with the unofficial start of fall: Labor Day. Esquire provides a stress-free Labor Day weekend packing list so you can spend your last summer days in style, while Food Network dishes out simple standby recipes for the grill.

Once the leaves change color and you feel that first chill in the air, it’s time to work hydrating moisturizers into your daily routine; Esquire picks 6 options to prevent chapped skin. You also can’t be without a blazer, one of the biggest trends we saw on the fall runways. MR PORTER serves up 6 options along with styling tips.

And finally, we’ve included some wonderful wet shaving articles. Sharpologist condenses his encyclopedic knowledge of wet shaving into “10 Commandments of Wet Shaving,” while Men’s Journal picks 14 all-natural shaving creams to try if you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to enjoy your shave.

Enjoy!

2017 is officially upon us! If you’re just heading back into work today, here’s something that’ll make the transition a little easier: a little daydreaming in the form of a guide to relaxing destinations for your spring holiday. Because although the climate may say otherwise, spring is coming fast enough.

Something else that will help you start the year on a high note? A quick primer on how to stick to those resolutions you made two days ago. By breaking your goals into actionable items, you’ll be able to tackle them more easily.

This month’s news roundup also includes dopp kit product suggestions from Men’s Journal, and GQ’s picks for the most popular grooming products of 2016.
