Beckham Beauty Range?
Monday, May 9th, 2016
David Beckham, famous for football and fragrances is now trying his hand at something else.
Teaming up with Biotherm, Beckham is taking on the skincare world with his own grooming range.
Its well known that Beckham’s career in football opened many doors to him, with Pepsi adverts and his fragrance empire. He is a household name and his men’s scent ‘Instinct’ is up there with the best selling celebrity fragrances of all time.
However, despite his endless franchises, endorsements and charity events, apparently David Beckham can still manage to try his hand at another new venture. His collaboration with Biotherm will add the world of skincare to his repertoire.
Biotherm is a luxury skincare brand, originating from France, and now owned by L’Oreal under their Luxury Products division. The Biotherm name derives from profession of the founder Mme Jeanie Marissal, a biologist, and thermal plankton. Thermal Plankton is an ingredient found in all Biotherm products, supposedly a key to healthy skin and a potent skin rejuvenator. In 1952, Mme Jeanie, acquired intellectual property rights to thermal plankton and from then on she used it in skin care products.
With previous faces of the Biotherm Homme line including Sex and the City actor Chris Noth, its clear Biotherm have an idea of the kind of man they want to attract. However, according to WWD, not only will Beckham be the face of the new Biotherm Homme line, he will also co-create the collection of men’s grooming products, set to launch next year.
Beckham is notoriously well groomed, with his good looks and perfectly styled hair he’s the fantasy and inspiration of many, we’re sure. His style has encouraged many men to have a go at a more gentlemanly look with slicked back hair and he is no stranger to a beauty regimen. In the past, he’s admitted to taking beauty tips from his wife, Victoria Beckham. She once famously said that she and David share their beauty products and he’s even admitted to enjoying a manicure over any other pampering treatment when he’s feeling indulgent.
If anyone’s suited to be the face of a men’s grooming line, then it’s got to be David Beckham.
So what do you think? Are you looking forward to Beckham’s contribution to the beauty industry?
4 Mens Hairstyles for Spring/Summer 2016
Wednesday, May 4th, 2016
We’re now well into spring and on the way to summer, so why not revamp your style to suit the season?
It seems like women get the majority of the attention when it comes to summer style, particularly in the hair department, but Defacto are here to bring you some new ideas for your spring/summer barnet.
Male grooming is more important than ever and so it should be! So, take pride in your appearance and have a look at our 4 suggestions for your next hair appointment.
The days of the slicked quiff are over, now its all about texture and volume. You’ll want to have a good bit of length at the top, with the use of point cutting to create the texture and ensure you keep a bit more length at the fringe to create the actual quiff.
A no. 4 on the back and sides is recommended but if you’re looking for a more dramatic cut you will want to maybe go a little shorter.
To style it try putting hair putty or hair paste into towel dried hair. For extra volume and hold you can try your hand at salt spray, a great product for creating texture.
This is a messy style with a lot of texture and is ideal for those with short-mid length hair. This style suits most face shapes but the more defined and angular your bone structure is then the shorter you can go at the back and sides to highlight your features.
You can style it by applying a very small amount (around the size of a pea) to towel dried hair before blow-drying the remaining moisture. Try a matte paste to show off your natural texture. Use products that have a firm hold but don’t dry hard, you don’t want to loose flexibility and movement from the hair.
Longer hair on men has been a growing trend for a while now. Especially with the recent man bun trend. Long hair looks best with full facial hair or a bit of stubble and is most suited to men with masculine faces.
Keep in mind that long hair takes patience (around 8 to 12 months of no length cutting). Product wise its best to just let the hair fall in its natural state. The less product, the better. Just be sure to invest in a good quality conditioner.
A classy haircut that never really goes out of style. It’s versatile in the way that it suits both a working and a social life if you’re in a serious business setting. Hair on the side can be clippered to around an inch long, with at least four inches on the top to make sure the slicked style will stay in place.
To style it, run a comb through wet hair to set it in a natural parting. Then apply gel or pomade to set the style in place.
