Long Hair Don’t Care? 

So it’s the trend of the year it seems: the bearded man. Coincidentally it’s also the accessory of the season for ladies: a bearded man…

Grow them if you will but all I ask is that if you decide to grow a Gentleman’s beard (any kind of facial hair really) dare I ask that you maintain that bad boy with the right essentials.

The Castaway look done right can be very Sexy-SoCal; Hoeever, done wrong will only leave you with your volleyball to keep you company!

Gentlemen: So how do you suggest we maintain the look so dudes envy it and girls dig it?

Simple. The Barbers Brew Grooming Company. 

The Barbers Brew

Not only is everything made by hand with no preservatives in Toronto, Canada but my friends at ‘the brew are full of passion and excitement for what they create. I don’t know about you but given the choice imma go with the company run by passionate, serving-minded entrepreneurs because I know I’m guaranteed an authentic experience!

With 3 awesome fragrances made with essential oils (mmmm delicious) my hubby was the bearded guinea pig who gets to try this stuff out!

[I will preface by stating that his skin although beautiful (whatever, I’m biased!) like many men, can get quite problematic when shaving due to a very coarse and full hair growth.]


So if you are a Modern Man sans el beardo the cool thing about The Barbers Brew beard oil is that it’s a great way to keep it soft, shiney and most importantly smelling terrific!

On the converse, of you have love for the beard but are admiring from a distance, not sure if you can pull it off, the comfort factor or for uneven hair-growth reasons, you choose not too … GOOD NEWS: you can still enjoy the beard oils. It’s a preshave as well as a conditioning beard oil.

3….2….1… BEARD OFF!

Beards that make women TICK!

Hairy men and anything even associated with overly excessive hair had been a taboo for way to long. Strong Hairy men in the seventies were celebrated and was the intended ideal man for most woman. It has been introduced with a warm welcome in the recent months with so much love. In our beautiful, cultural, and populated city of Toronto what have we noticed? BEARDS! LOTS AND LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL AND LUSCIOUS BEARDS. There are 5 hairy beauties that have been the rising stars of the beard industry. We all know every woman has a little something for that “bad boy” and what beard is our best fit for that image? The full beard.


It immediately grabs the attention of the ‘peasants’ that dare cross paths with you. Providing a beastly aura of strength, confidence, and mystery to your appearance. It can be increasing challenging for a stubborn woman (which are most of us) and will keep her on her toes. A masculine Viking bushy style is definitely  the perfect kick off for a mesmerizing and powerful bearded entrance to the new year.

Our rising shaggy star this season has been the UNEVEN BEARD, most often seen with the equally as popular UNDERCUT hairstyle. A beard flowing with your common daily hair looks is always a blessing. Give yourself a nice fade where your side burns join with your beard, allowing your beard to emerge at its most clean cut  and well groomed presentation. Added definition to your face resulting in the mysterious look most women have become slaves to.

Our black beauties have a hairy advantage with beards as well. With the divine gift of small and tight curls giving that look of a complete and full beard and envious volume is easy to accomplish. The wide variety of options to choose from gives them plenty of room for creativity with hairstyles. BONUS!


Rick Ross


The first class beard that makes every woman’s knees buckle at just the sight of it. It brings confidence, a regal atmosphere, and pure sex. THE SHORT BEARD, it’s short, it’s clean, easy to maintain, and of course mysterious. With this look you immediately label yourself as the ‘BIG KAHUNNA’ yet it is still perfect for any situation that requires you to play the role of a certified businessman.


David Gandy


If you’re the type that likes to stand out and be noticed without a second glance, try adding colour to your eclectic bearded personality. Be mindful of not using permanent dye otherwise you might have to settle with a two toned look in your near and unfortunate hairy future. What is great about this unshaven flair is that it gives you free reign with colour that can work with your general style. Bring a new meaning to the ‘BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL’.
