Well, we’re at that time of year again when we look back at the good, the bad and the ugly memories we masked over with martinis. The concept of ‘change’ is no longer resigned to our wallets and pockets, as January beckons it becomes an idea at the forefront of our minds, leading the charge on what’s left of our fighting spirit. Coinages like ‘New year, new me’ are scattered across the social stratosphere and resolutions are resurrected in the hope that they last at least an hour longer than last year’s.
If you want a fresh start, the trick is not to plan but to execute. Take action on something that will serve as a bold move of intent and start the year as you mean to go on. At Jack The Clipper we believe you should see the change you want to be, and that journey begins at your most prominent feature – your hair.
Were you too timid in 2015?
Commence the calendar with a drastic new do. Ask Jack to go to work with his razor and render you a sharp fade to create cool contrasts on your cranium. The classic low-mid range pompadour is a sweet style to start from; it symbolises sharpness, security and confidence. Keep a thick, flourishing but precisely shaped and trimmed beard as a trendy companion – you’ll notice a new level of attraction and attention gravitate toward you. New Year, new momentum.
Did you work easy, play hard last year?
It is said that the first thing somebody notices in a meeting is your hair. Business doesn’t have to be boring and professional doesn’t have to precipitate on your parade. With subtlety comes class and with the correct maintenance you could elevate your image in the workplace tenfold. Jack’s master barbers have the expertise and vision to accomplish a sophisticated and stylish look bound to get you the deals, and hopefully the thrills (that part is down to you).
A French Crop is a classic evolution of the Caesar, and it comes packed with versatility allowing you to sprinkle some creativity on your barnet fair. Keep a neatly trimmed beard and have it massaged with oils; look, smell and feel pristine. Ask Jack to assist you and he’ll show you which grooming products to apply and how.
Did you miss Movember and were you oblivious to Decembeard?
Throw your fears to the fire and remind yourself that it’s never too late to sport some fine facial hair. There are many lengths, styles and textures you can cultivate from your beard but what you could really benefit from is a master barber with years of experience. Jack’s wizards will make sure your beard is suave but importantly, matching the appearance and perception you desire to deliver. For centuries, the beard was associated with the wise and the old but in recent times, it has become a must-have possession for a man who wants to stand out as mature with a shot of wildness.
Again, you have all of the products and resources available to you at Jack’s to keep your beard and hair in top condition.
However you start the top of your year, make sure you start at the top of your head – here’s to a 2016 full of barbering brilliance!
