Amy KomorowskiCelebrity men’s groomer, Amy Komorowski knows hair. The sharpest leading men, rock stars and athletes call on her when they need to look their very best. She has styled many of Hollywood’s elite including Eddie Redmayne, Adam Driver, Jason Segel and James McAvoy. If those guys can trust her, you can too. Amy has made it her mission to educate guys on just how easy it is to achieve a clean, effortless look from head to toe. We caught up with her just before this weekend’s Golden Globes for some award winning hair tips.

TM: What do you think THE men’s haircut of 2016 will be?

AK: I think we are still going to see lots of fades and undercuts but the trend of longer hair will gain more momentum too. Look for more cheekbone/chin length hairstyles as well.

TM: When it comes to product is there one universal paste, clay or pomade that works best on most hair types? Which is the easiest to work with?

Axe-messy-lookAK: I would say any product that moves through hair easiest is the best product to use. Usually a paste such as AXE Messy Look: Flexible Paste is the most universal because of its medium to light hold and it works for most hair types. It’s what I tend to reach for first when I’m working and if I need a stronger hold I can always mix in a product like a fiber or pomade for a stronger hold.

TM: Most guys know to use their fingertips to work the product into their hair. Where should they start and should they use more product on the ends?

AK:  I like to start where most of the product is needed, usually the front/longest part of the hairstyle. Then use the excess product on the rest of the hair to finish up.

TM: How often should guys wash their hair? And is conditioner really necessary?

AK: I’d say the best rule of thumb is for guys to wash their hair every day; I hate to give guys a pass and let their hair go dirtier than needed. That being said some guys with thicker or curlier hair might want to wash every other day or just use a conditioner so hair doesn’t get too big or poufy. Hair that is “too” clean or soft can actually be harder to style.

TM: What is the best way for a guy to tame a curlier mane?

Axe-natural-lookAK: (Above) Apply more conditioner than shampoo and use a sea salt spray to define and tame the curls. A cream like AXE Natural Look: Understated Cream is also a great product to use if you have longer wavy to curly hair. Rake through, shake your head once or twice or tousle hair with hands and let it air dry. As with shorter curlier hair, define the curls with your fingers and let it be, don’t separate or disturb the curls too much, that’ll just make your hair frizzy.

TM: You’re the woman behind a lot of handsome guys on the red carpet, have you picked up any pointers from your clients over the years?

AK: I learn from my clients all the time. Being a woman, we do different things to our hair and usually want a different aesthetic or outcome for our hair than men. The “hat trick” putting on a knit hat or baseball cap for a couple minutes after styling hair can oddly be the magic touch.

After more than a year of mandatory mask-wearing and being largely confined to our homes, re-establishing a regular grooming routine can be a challenge. Quarantine beards are now either being styled or shaven completely but what about stubborn nose hairs? Maybe you're opting to keep your mask on this summer to hide those embarrassing hairs from plain view, even if you're fully vaccinated. However, if your reason for continuing to wear a face mask is purely rooted in vanity, allow yourself to breathe easier and invest in a nose hair trimmer instead.

Plucking nose hairs is not only time-consuming and uncomfortable, but it can yield ingrown hairs and nasal infections. Thus, you should find a trimmer that'll get the job done quickly and safely. Our roundup of the best nose hair trimmers spans a range of budgets and uses. Ditch the tweezers and buy any of the five options below to keep your nose hairs in check instead. Most of these options can also be used for trimming ear hairs so you can consider nixing those curtain-like sideburns, too.

The 9 Best Scalp Brushes for All Hair Types and Lengths
best scalp brushes for men 2021

It's important to maintain a healthy scalp whether you have long, flowing locks or are currently rocking a buzz cut. No matter the length of your hair, your scalp is prone to buildup from natural oils and hair styling products, which can lead to itching, flakes (dandruff), or hair loss as the follicles become clogged and inflamed.

Fortunately, a scalp brush can break down any buildup while stimulating hair growth. All you need is about five minutes a day and small, circular motions across the circumference of your head. A hair brush is great but a scalp massager is better at exfoliating the scalp. You can use a scalp brush on dry hair (which is a fantastic massage) or in the shower to help distribute shampoo for a thorough cleaning.
