New Year, New Grooming Tips

2019 is upon us, and that means guys everywhere are drafting New Year’s resolution lists and starting to make changes for the better. But in between setting up that gym membership and reading up on healthy recipes, the new year is an ideal time to revisit your grooming regimen. At 18|8 Austin, our mission is to help the men of Austin, TX look, feel, and perform their best through world-class barbershop and grooming services – so here are our tips on how to supercharge your look for the new year.

Start Exfoliating

We all know that moisturizing is crucial for healthy skin, but heading into 2019, why not kick your facial care regimen up a notch? After all, moisturizing is great for dry skin, but it can’t do anything about dead skin cells that linger on the face, clogging pores and causing breakouts. Try exfoliating your face every three days, sandwiching it between a good cleanser and a moisturizer. If you really want to start the year off right, book one of our men’s facial treatments – your face will get a rejuvenating treatment, and you’ll get personalized advice on how to care for it in the new year.

Finally Find Your Hair Product

If you’ve been limping along with a hair gel that barely gets you what you’re looking for, make 2019 the year that you finally dial in your hair product. While it may take some experimentation, finding a hair product that works for your hair can massively improve your look and save plenty of hassle. For extra guidance, come in for one of our signature Executive Style Haircut and your barber will give you expert advice on choosing the best hair product.

Fine-Tune Your Facial Hair

Whether you wear a full beard, some manly stubble, or a clean-shaven face, knowing how to groom and style it properly is essential for achieving your best look. For beard and stubble-wearers, take some time to focus on your neckline: most men tend to shave their beard too high, which ends up looking off and accentuating any droop under your chin. And if you’re looking for the cleanest shave you’ve ever experienced, don’t forget to book one of our undeniably classic Straight Razor Shaves.
