MEN'S CHRISTMAS GROOMING TIPS FROM BRAUN

The festive period brings added pressure of looking good for families and friends, and according to a new survey by Braun, Christmas Eve is when most men spruce up, starting with their beard


Braun cruZer has just the tools to make any restyle easy
& Braun’s Style Director, Fabio Vivan, has some top tips on how to look your festive best.

 Facial Hair
 44% of guys claim their beard keeps them warm in the winter.
Fabio’s top tip for cold weather facial hair: Use a beard oil and massage regularly to prevent dry skin and keep your beard looking sleek and voluminous

 40% of women said their partner would get a ticking off if he looked scruffy and unkempt.
 Fabio’s top tip for tidying up: The Braun cruZer face features a trimmer with a narrow side that precisely defines lines and edges and shapes tight curves while the wide side (28mm) evenly cuts and trims large areas.








16% of bearded blokes are frustrated that they can’t sport the current roll neck trend.
Fabio’s top tip for trimming: Trim the neck area and sideburns more regularly than the cheeks and upper lip, as these areas will grow quicker –use a beard trimmer with an adjustable comb like the Braun cruZer6 beard&head to maintain a length that you are happy with


 A fifth of men said that being off work during the festive break is the perfect excuse for them to test out a new beard style.
 Fabio’s top tip for after the shave: Keep skin hydrated post-grooming with aloe vera based skincare and avoid the use of alcohol-based aftershaves as these can change the PH balance in your skin










 Body hair 
 36% of men are planning on spending more time on their grooming routine in 2016 than in 2015. Fabio’s top tip for maintaining body hair in the New Year: Start by using a body trimmer on a high setting. Continue with a lower setting until you’re happy with the result.
 A product like the Braun cruZer6 body is perfect as it features three trimming combs (0.6mm, 3mm & 8mm) that allow you to choose your preferred length of body hair

As a brand known for leading the way with colour in men’s fashion, the collaboration between Pantone and Thomas Pink for our 2016 Colour of the Year selection is a natural choice.”

Ermenegildo Zegna SS16 Advertising Campaign

 A group of self-aware and relaxed men is portrayed on a simple white background to emulate the balance of simplicity, fluidity and lightness protagonist of the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture SS16 Fashion Show by Stefano Pilati.

 The graphic layout is completely new, while the essential white stage allows clothes to speak by themselves through the powerful photography of Inez & Vinoodh.

The images express the modern and conscious aesthetic codes of the New Leaders, highlighting their stylish, masculine and contemporary personality.

 For the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture collection a symphony of lightness and transparency declined into micro and macro Madras patterns play with shades of beautiful "non-whites" framed by optical white and total black looks, while Ermenegildo Zegna, next to the world of classic tailoring, introduces its new colorful informal soul: a nonchalant and decidedly relaxed take on the daily act of dressing up.
