For Men Interested in Better Grooming, Beau Brummel Brand is Where to Start

There are your run-of-the-mill grooming brands that line drugstore shelves and then there’s

Beau Brummel for Men,

a young company based in New York that draws inspiration from a true fashion innovator (that would be Beau Brummel, naturally). Founded three years ago, the brand’s difference is one that can be seen across the board in a range of activated charcoal-based products, which its president, Zack Evar, says helps impart both a cool product color and, more importantly, major benefits for men’s skin.

Beau Brummel was a dandy himself but he didn’t have access to products like these (sorry, we just had to go there). The line is sulfate-free and guaranteed to deliver results right away — we should know, because we tried the products ourselves. For the guy who’s just getting into the grooming game, a brand like this could be just the place to start.

“Grooming is all about confidence. When you give yourself a little extra time each day to focus on self-care, you become an elevated version of yourself,” Evar said. “This extra time is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and it’s what Beau Brummell is all about.”

If that sounds like an ideal way to start your path toward better grooming, check out our favorite selections from the line below.

Fashion is what you wear, but style is how you wear it. Anyone can buy the right clothes and grab the same thing off the rack they saw on their favorite celebrity, but the truly stylish man knows that a quality canvas can make all the difference for the final artwork. That's why taking care of yourself over and underneath your clothing is so important. 

While it may seem like the hair, beard, and skincare basics stay largely the same every year, there are definite trends that direct us men on specific paths. From the man bun in the early 2010s to the revival of the Peaky Blinders undercut in the last five years, there are always trends and styles to keep in mind.
