Male grooming is finally taking center stage, and the cosmetics industry is seeing a gender-backed shakeup. Over the years there’s been a growing consciousness among men regarding their appearance health and overall public projection.
The desire to look better among men can partly be linked to increasing access to media worldwide, and its continuing role in the generation of a new general understanding in society of what men’s
grooming should actually be like.

men to look good all the time, companies are promoting the products directly toward men.

Just go with the flow. That was, apparently, one of the messages
from the world’s leading hair stylists, who sent a barrage of models
with shaggy bed-head down the runway.
Tired Smokey Eyes
Paired with the shaggy hair, perhaps designers, hair stylists and
makeup artists were attempting to portray a picture of how
everybody is feeling at the moment: tired.
A fresh start is, apparently, on the cards.
