Fifteen years ago in a little bar in ‘small town’ Australia, two guys had the idea to grow a moustache for Men’s health charities. They recruited 30 willing ‘compadres’ who met the challenge with such enthusiasm that it was clear to all, this unique fundraising idea was going to catch on.
Shane O’Shaughnessy, owner of The Dandy Gent barbershops in Derby, has frequently talked about his desire to recreate the ‘traditional’ barbershop experience – and many would agree, he has done a pretty outstanding job of achieving that.
As more and more gents realise that investing in their appearance brings huge rewards, we present to you a pictorial reference to the finest shaving routine possible – demonstrated by our friends at The Dandy Gent, using their own handmade, natural products, formulated for healthy skin, a close shave, freshness and fine fragrance.
Fine grooming is not a luxury afforded only by the rich and famous – it’s an essential for any man wishing to be the best he can, whatever the size of his ego or pocket. It’s well known that being happy with the way you look has a huge impact on your confidence, positively affecting the way you interact with others – and the way others behave towards you.
A bold claim from Shane, who’s confident swagger shows he has utter belief in the power of the barber. “But,” he adds firmly, “It’s important to first understand which style will best suit your own face, not the face of a guy you spotted in a magazine.”
