The Men’s Grooming Scene in Australia & New Zealand

Grooming has definitely never been more exciting than today! With all those products, balsams and creams, as well as a wide variety of razors and shavers for different types and styles of beard and moustaches, there’s literally nothing you can’t do! And if you decide to take things to the next level, there are a number of professionals ready to show you exciting shaving techniques and innovations that will rock your world. Here are a couple of news from the men’s grooming scene in Australia and New Zealand you should pay close attention to.


Going back old school

Although hipster fashionable male grooming has been around for over half a century, it seems like it hasn’t seen its brightest days yet. Since men started shaving themselves on a daily basis, barbers slowly became obsolete everywhere in the world, and Australia and New Zealand were no different. However, today, there’s more and more demand for old school shaving and grooming, which is great news for a new generation of professional barbers. In central Queensland, for instance, cut-throat shaves have never been more popular than today and the chances are this trend is here to stay.


To razor or not to razor?







This is another thing from the past and something you couldn’t imagine your everyday 1920s shaving without. However, while razors used to be unpopular in the last decades of the 20th century, they’re making a come-back as we speak and more men are using them at home than ever. They’re also popular with the professionals as well, says a popular barber from New Zealand, because there’s “nothing more manly than being shaved by an actual cut-throat razor” – and once you try it, you’ll never go back to disposable razors again. So, if you’re a regular Aussie bloke looking for a way to accentuate your shaving routine, try finding a proper safety razor in Australia and you’ll turn your shaving game from ordinary to magnificent in no time.


Moustache renaissance

The shaving and grooming market has always been full of new products, but one kind has been the most popular in the last couple of years: products for your moustache. After the reign of Tom Selleck’s and Charles Bronson’s simple and uninspiring moustache in the 1980s and 1990s, it’s time for something new, so an increasing number of men from Australia and New Zealand try out a brand new look enhanced by a fashionable moustache.


Products, products, products







If you that beauty products are intended for women only, you’ll be surprised! Realizing how important proper skincare is for their health and overall look, a huge number of Aussie men have been getting interested in skincare products in the past year or two. They generally use facial moisturizers and cleansers, as well as hand and body lotions, which only shows how careful and meticulous they are regarding their skincare. Taking care of their faces, beards, moustaches and hands might take some getting used to, but results are phenomenal, and it’s definitely something their partners will love.


In other news

As you can see, the shaving and grooming scene in Australia and New Zealand has never been more alive than today and there are lots of things happening at the same time. These news range from updating old shaving techniques to opening new barber shops, but they also include new skincare brands that try to make a difference by introducing new products such as face scrubs, lip balms and hair styling creams. These products are both manly and nurturing, so their effect on your body, hair and beard is huge, which is why you need to look into them as soon as possible.
