Men's grooming is not what it used
to be in times of old, when taking
care of yourself as a man meant just
cutting your hair, shaving and
bathing. It has since evolved where
men are more concerned with their
overall appearance rather than just
their face, mostly because of their
women or girlfriends who now look
for that polished look, which does not
necessarily mean a clean shaven face
but rather a well put together, overall
Guys it's not difficult to maintain
that polished look. As a professional
groomer/Barber at Swagg Elite Groom-
ing Studio, part of my role as groomer
to my clients is to advise them on how
they can keep the Swagg up between
appointments so here are some tips.
1. At least twice a month you should
get a haircut/mark and shave. Pay at-
tention to how often you mark as too
often can result in an eroded hairline. If
budget does not permit you to cut
twice a month you can invest in a pair
of Andis or Wahl outliners to keep your
facial hair low or marked till your next
2. If you have bushy eyebrows don't
be afraid to ask your barber to use his
number 1 clipper guard to lower those
bad boys, once it is lowered there is no
need to mark them as they will have a
natural outline which will make them
just as pronounced as if you were to
3. Engage in basic manicure and
pedicure, this simply means cut your
nails, fellas. Dont bite them, it is not
healthy. If you have callouses on the
heel and ball of your feet you may need
to visit a professional such as Swagg
Elite to have a Spa Pedicure done to re-
move the callouses/corns. For you
rough and tough guys that do the
harder jobs like construction or trade
work, a little Spa Manicure once a
month will go a long way with the
ladies --- no sandpaper hands fellas.
4. For the guys with the accelerated
hair growth you can also invest in a
pair of Wahl or Andis Clippers to keep
that mane tamed in between haircuts
and also to keep your beard and mous-
tache manageable. There are also nose
hair trimmers available that you can
get for those boldface nose hairs that
feel they must be seen.
5. For my grizzly brothers out there
who have a lot of body hair, the clip-
pers mentioned in tip 4 can also work
in keeping the chest hair and arm pits
clean as body hair is mostly responsi-
ble for body odour.
So this Fathers Day, ladies and kids
can get dad some grooming tools in-
stead of the traditional socks and ties,
it will be a worthy investment for you
and for him. Guys, take your grooming
more seriously as the ladies will take
notice your efforts which will result in
the biggest trophy.... Her Heart. Have a
Happy Fathers Day from Swagg Elite
Grooming Studio. Find us on all social

Jewellery isn't just for moms. Dad can
appreciate a little bling too. Commemo-
rate Dad's special day with a special gift
he will treasure... jewellery.
Here's a selection of some of the best
gifts to get dad for Father's Day, courtesy
Brett Jubraj at Zina's Jewellery.
If you're looking for a sentimental gift
that your dad will cherish for years to
come, a watch is a great option. Not only is
it a functional and stylish gift, but your dad
will also be reminded of the value of the
watch every time he checks the time.
Some of our top picks for Father's Day
watches are Movado Bold, Kenneth Cole
and Guess, to name a few. Before you pur-
chase, think about his personal style and
Even the most conservative of dads will
appreciate a nice, smart pair of cufflinks.
Cufflinks are a very discreet and stylish
accessory and the best thing about them
is that there are thousands of fantastic
designs to choose from.
There are many styles of cuff links to
choose from, from classic round or square
shapes in silver, stainless steel, titanium or
gold to more elaborate designs studded
with diamonds and other gemstones.
As an added touch, you can personalise
dad's cufflinks with his initials or the word
"Dad" engraved on it.
Bracelets and rings
Real mean do wear bracelets and rings.
Men's bracelets typically are wider and
more substantial than women's bracelets
and feature links and chains.
Local jewellery pieces like gold slave
bands or Bayras are an excellent alterna-
tive. Bayras are considered masculine
choices that are simply irresistible. They
are also engravable, adding to their appeal.
Another special idea for a Father's Day
gift is a ring featuring his birthstone or the
word "dad" designed into the band.
Pendants come in unique designs and
special meanings. When placed on a chain,
pendants give your necklace a fashion
style that is personal, which makes your
jewellery more interesting.
Gift dad a pendant to complement his
chain with a custom pendant with the pic-
ture of his loved ones, the phrase "Happy
Father's Day" engraved or any aspect that
may reflect his life. Popular styles of pen-
dants are dog tags or other symbols.
