Shaved Head Hairstyles Managed with MENAJI

Having a trendy, presentable and stylish hairstyle is as important for a contemporary man as it is for a woman. When a woman first meets you, your hairstyle is the first thing she’ll notice – after your shoes, of course

David Beckham has made changing his hairstyle a staple in his wardrobe, particularly shaved head styles. He is an awesome example of how you can transform your looks with a shaved head and add a stylish edge to your appearance. A full-shaved head can also showcase rugged facial features!

Luckily this look is well-understood by today’s modern barbershops. So choose a trendier barbershop who knows you will need more than “a little off the top”.

Here are some steps and products to use for this hairstyle.

1. Before you start the transformation it’s important you wash and exfoliate (Face & Body Scrub by MËNAJI) your head in order to prevent in-grown hairs, rashes or infections of any sort.

2. Keep your scalp muscles relaxed and your skin well-moisturized throughout the shaving process. 

3. Towel dry your head and apply a hydrating cream (Power Hydrator by MËNAJI) to moisturize your skin — it won’t clog your pores.

4. Remember to exfoliate (Face & Body Scrub by MËNAJI) every few days to prevent ingrown hairs.

5. Finally, apply ANTI-SHINE to your head starting with the back with light pats working your way to the front and forehead to prevent shine throughout.

Shaved head haircuts offer a change in style that can make you look more youthful, more pulled together, and current. Shaved head haircuts are also more versatile. They can be worn neatly styled for work, and a change in finish for the weekend is only a product choice away!

Are you about to get married? Congratulations!

But before you wait at the altar for your betrothed, you need to up your grooming game for the big day.

Why? Because in all the excitement, Grooms forget that it’s the single most important day in your life where you will have your own personal paparazzi, following you around taking video, shooting photographs, capturing the event on phones, and dispersing the images across the internet through social channels.

Here are 4 steps to looking your best for your wedding without overthinking it.

STEP 1 – Cleanse – Face & Body Scrub will exfoliate, clean and renew your skin with our specially designed scrub for men’s skin. It contains a unique blend of certified organic lime peel oil, jojoba, ginseng, kelp, azulene and aloe. Why are these ingredients useful? They unclog pores, they are anti-inflammatory, address acne and clear up blemishes and stimulates skin regeneration and lessens wrinkles.

STEP 2 – Correct – 911 Eye Gel to the rescue for tired and overworked eyes. Place a tube of this in the refrigerator a couple days ahead and put on the day before and the day of the wedding directly under the eyes. Containing allantoin, chamomile, aloe and wheat protein, 911 smoothes and improves the texture of sunken or puffy under-eye bags/skin.

STEP 3 – Protect – Power-hydrate your razor-raw face with powerful nutrients and rebuild that face’s collagen. Youthful glowing skin without the oil and dewy look – just for men. Follow up with our Lip Agent to keep those lips moist for the big moment when you finally “Kiss the Bride.” (p.s. you’ll be kissing her entire family too – so…)

STEP 4 – Conceal – CAMO is your secret weapon. Totally undetectable and light as air concealer for all the spots you didn’t think you had…Follow up with HDPV Anti-Shine to deflect any funky lighting and summertime sweat from making you look shiny and oily. You may not be a TV star – but you’ll play one on the big day.

And that’s your recipe for Grooming the Groom (and his groomsmen). Up your Grooming Game when you’re the Groom and you’ll have photos you won’t cringe at when viewing them many years from now.

There are profound differences between the sexes in myriad categories, however when comparing their skin, the only comment used to be that women were the “fairer” sex and that their skin was “softer.”

The implied idea that a man’s skin was “rougher,” and that it may not have needed a lot of (or any) care, we now know of course is false. Thanks, in part, to the men’s growing grooming industry, we now know that men’s skin needs a lot more care than men themselves are willing to give it.

  • Men’s skin is about 25% thicker. Testosterone is the reason why. A man’s skin needs more hydrating ingredients because constant shaving can dry out the skin. Thickness requires formulations that can penetrate well.
  • Men’s skin is oilier. Testosterone stimulates sebum production and men need products that take that into account. Increased sebum can also create a reddish, ruddy complexion. Not all moisturizers are created equal and men should look for those that don’t feel greasy. Men should also find an anti-shine powder that can cover ruddiness and even out the skin tone without causing breakouts.
  • Men have more facial hair. Men need shave creams and gels that are gentle on the skin and prep the hair for a comfortable, closer shave. Men need products that account for the added sensitivity a man has on his skin due to shaving.
  • Men have larger pore size. They need products that won’t clog pores or cause ingrown hairs, and that will cover problem skin more evenly if ANTI-SHINE powder or concealer is needed.
  • Men sweat 3 times more than women. Hydrating the skin is extremely important, thus men should include a product in their grooming that hydrates well.

Men’s skin is very different. The more educated men become about their skin, the more seriously they will take cleaning their skin and hopefully incorporate grooming routines that cleanse, correct, protect, conceal and make their skin look better, into their daily lives.

Take away: Use products created and developed specifically for men, and hydrate often.
