Technology has moved on from the days of just plain razors when it comes to male grooming. With more men adopting a “metrosexual” style, male grooming is definitely a booming industry in 2018. From perfectly coiffed hairstyles, to beards and smooth hairless looks, there are gadgets out there to suit every single taste.
Here’s a list of gadgets you may want to add to your repertoire to speed things up or get salon style results in the comfort of your home.
1. Hairmax laser band – this is for men who are trying to keep male pattern baldness at bay or thicken already thinning hair. While laser combs have been around for a while, this take hair laser technology to a new level. It’s a headband designed to blast lasers into your scalp to recharge your hair follicles. Think of it as a cattle prod for hair follicles, no slacking allowed here! It revives dormant follicles helping to regrow lost hair and strengthen your existing hair.
2. Panasonic ER430K ear and nose trimmer. For only £20 this nifty little gadget will rid your nostrils and ears of unsightly hairs safely. For men who like to groom their eyebrows, this is also a great tool to use to keep them in ship shape between waxing or threading appointments.
3. Dyson Supersonic hair dryer – for £300 it is not a tool to be purchased on a whim. If you spend a lot of time grooming your hair and take your hair styling tools seriously then this is a piece you might want to consider. Dyson technology is no joke and they have invested the same amount of effort into creating this hair dryer. The digital motor is in the handle and the technology used means it should get your hair dry much quicker. For men with curly hair who use hair relaxers, this dryer keeps hair straight for even longer.
4. Philips Lumea Prestige IPL – for those who like a hairless look, using an IPL treatment will save you lots of time and money in the long run. Hair waxing treatments can add up over time, not to talk of how painful they can be. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and has several uses in the cosmetic and medical fields. The Philips Lumea Prestige IPL uses pulses of light to stop your hair from growing for up to eight weeks. Far longer than the results achieved through waxing or shaving. You can save time on salon trips and the device will pay for itself quite quickly, depending on how often you have been making those said salon trips.
