TOP DIY GROOMING TIPS FROM REMINGTON’S SESSION STYLIST

Home styling is here again! With a nation confidently picking up the tools for some DIY grooming, Remington Session Stylist, Kieran Tudor, gives his top tips for a Lockdown 3.0 tidy up that any pro would be proud of.

 

Battling the Beard

 

When preparing to tackle an overgrown beard, Kieran recommends arming yourself with a professional kit like the Crafter Beard Kit from Remington, saying:

 

Finding a tool with a number of features, such as Remington’s Crafter Beard Kit, is a great way to completely revamp your washbag and get prepped for lockdown! You can achieve expert results from the comfort of your bathroom with three adjustable combs and premium stainless-steel scissors. This kit also comes with an EDGEStyler for precision beard edging and shaping – ideal when we can’t get to the barbers.”

 “There’s also a towel and a bib included in the set so you don’t need to worry about the mess – the bathroom will be left spotless when you’re done.”

 

  1. A quick-fire way to a neater look is taking all the beard hair to an even length. This can be achieved by setting the comb attachment to your desired length and working around the face up to around halfway up the ear.
  2. Generally, it’s recommended to trim your beard by going with the grain, but if you’ve got hair growing in different directions you may need to go against the grain. Using your hand to stretch the skin and not pressing too hard also helps with an even length.
  3. To smarten up your look even further, remove the comb attachment and use the pop-up trimmer to begin defining the edges of your beard by creating a line along the neck. For strong definition, start your line underneath the chin and follow along the jaw line to the corner below each ear.
  4. Defining your cheekbones with a line that curves from the corner of the lip to your sideburns can also help in adding angles to a rounder-shaped face.  When doing this, try to work up from the line, rather than downwards.

 

Looking for something a little more multi-functional? For those who are looking to maintain more than their beard during lockdown, Kieran recommends a Multi-Grooming Kit like the G5 Graphite Series from Remington. Kieran says:

 

A trimmer with a number of attachments, like Remington’s G5 Graphite Series Multi-Grooming Kit, is a space-saving all-in-one solution. You can create up to 14 ultimate grooming styles and the 90-minute cordless run time means you can also sort your head and facial hair in one go without having to wait for another charge!”

 

Braving the Barnet

 

For anyone missing their regular trips to the barber, being able to get a good trim at home is a godsend and Kieran recommends using the Stylist Hair Clipper from Remington. To neaten the neckline, an angled mirror such as a bathroom cabinet is always best for a full view of those hard-to-reach places, but Kieran advises: “A helpful flatmate standing behind you with a mirror is a perfectly adequate alternative!

The Stylist Hair Clipper features self-sharpening blades and boasts eight comb attachments ranging from 3-25mm, so you’ll have everything you need to tidy up your sideburns and maintain your neck and hairline with professional results. This set also comes with a range of extras, from sectioning clips to a moustache comb and even a detail trimmer to sharpen your look – the perfect go-to for a new lockdown ‘do.

 

  1. To blend the sideburns in with the longer hair above, start with a longer comb and work upwards using a scooping motion. Using a long guard length, scoop outwards to blend the different hair lengths
  2. Gradually repeat the process, taking care as you scale down the guard lengths as with each shorter length blending the hair becomes trickier.
  3. Remove the guard and using the mirror behind you for a clear view, use the clipper to neaten the neckline.
