We all know grooming isn’t Dad’s favorite subject. Many men don’t know where to start when it comes to grooming, as it can be overwhelming. However, that has been changing over the past few years; guys are finally ready to embrace grooming services beyond the standard haircut and shave. Boardroom Salon for Men in Westlake provides men the ultimate relaxed grooming experience. Boardroom services include haircuts, hot lather shaves, facials, massages, coloring, waxing, as well as hand and foot grooming in an elegant, country club environment. Our team of expert stylists and barbers have shared tips to leave dad looking and feeling his best:

Getting rid of grey

Just because he gets grey hair doesn’t mean he has to live with it! However, 10 years of greying shouldn’t suddenly disappear overnight. Ask a stylist to add a touch of pigment. This semi-permanent method usually takes about 10 minutes and allows him to control how much grey coverage he wants. His hair will look more youthful and healthier; he’ll look great and feel confident.

To maintain the color, schedule regular touch-ups, as time and sun exposure can cause the color to fade. Additionally, quality hair products are a must! Some grey hair can take on an unattractive yellow hue all by itself – cheap shampoos can increase this unfortunate yellowing. It’s important for men with mature hair to condition regularly, as it requires increased moisture.

Keep hair looking fuller

Many believe that the longer their hair is, the more it covers up their bald spot or receding hair line – which is absolutely not true. If his hair is naturally starting to thin, keep it cropped short. Keeping the hair shorter—but not too short—gives it a feathering effect. This makes the receding hairline much less noticeable. To increase the volume of his hair, you want it to be thick in the front and strong throughout. Use a light gel and blow-dry it while fluffing with a round brush.

Minimize the appearance of wrinkles

With age, your skin cell turnover continues to decline. Exfoliating helps to speed up the process again, leaving his skin looking younger and fresher. Also, make sure you find a quality moisturizer to plump up the skin and increase skin hydration, so the appearance of wrinkles is minimized.

Exfoliate twice a week: Before shaving, apply a dime size amount of scrub onto a wet face, rubbing gently in circles. Don’t rub too hard as too much pressure can cause irritation. Then, rinse with warm water.
