@minnewyork: D.R. Harris Arlington Pre-Shave Lotion
The D.R. Harris Apothecary, founded in 1790 on St. James Street in London, has earned the privilege of a royal warrant by appointment to the Prince of Wales. Harris’ pre shave lotion, which boasts a light fragrance of citrus and fern, facilitates smoothness by coaxing stubble away from the face prior to the shave.
Celebrity groomer, Diana Schmidtke, works with Mad Men star, Jon Hamm, in additional to many of Hollywood’s leading men, and feels the show has completely transformed men’s style – and the 60’s look is bigger than ever!
Below, Diana shares her tips on how guys can get the dapper Don’s look in a few easy steps:
- Keep hair clean and soft with a good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.
- If you opt for a more mature version of Don Draper’s look, apply a gel evenly through the hair for shine and volume, then use a comb to create a side part. Blow dry hair into place on each side of the part, using fingertips to create a little volume in the front.
- To put a modern edge on this classic 60’s look, start with damp hair and apply your gel from the front-to-back, using fingers. Blow-dry hair backwards, continuing to move fingers front-to-back. Finish the look by using fingertips to create volume in the front, and adding a dab of grooming cream on dry hair for maximum hold and matte finish.
- To complete the look, get a clean shave. Start by holding a warm washcloth to your face for 60 seconds and then exfoliate to remove dead skin cells that can block the blade. Apply shaving cream over the beard and let it sit for at least two minutes to avoid razor burn. Begin shaving with the grain with two short strokes, rinse the blade clean, and repeat. It’s important to rinse the blade as it decreases the chance of nicks, razor burn and ingrown hairs. Next, go in for an even closer shave by pulling the skin taut and going against the grain. Finally, rinse skin clean with cold water to close pores.
The truest of artisans, Nobile 1942 was founded with love and passion, ‘handed down’ through three generations of the nobile family. Unberto Nobile in 1942 opened a successful perfumery in the heart of Rome selling prestigious brands. His son Benito thereafter devoted time, care and accuracy to produce essences, with slow maceration time and with pride into realizing special fragrances which represent Italian taste all over the world and now make up the unique fragrances of the Nobile 1942 collection which are now in the hands of Massimo Nobile, Umberto’s grandson.
A rare collection of incredible scents that are tailored, discerning, and very Italian, below are our favorites from the collection.
In the magic atmosphere of a place linked to the “magnificent” Florence of the Medici, two perfumes with evocative names were born. This is the Pontevecchio for men, a fragrance of sandalwood notes which warm up in contact with the skin of a man of strong character. Woody notes meets incense, vetiver, amber and musk to evoke something so perfect, yet usual… Rock it like a custom suit, created just for you.
If you like Patchouli, (to us) this one is the best in the market. Designed for the purist, this is a timeless scent for the gentleman. Like a proper single malt scotch, this parfum has a woody finish and features round profile full of character!
A bold, fresh, aquatic scent that is the result of reinterpreting something familiar and commercially masculine. Nobile 1942 replaced the synthetic, common notes with the best ingredients to delivery a symphony via the angel share. If you like BLEU DE CHANEL or ‘sporty’ scents, this one is for you.
Available at MiN New York.
My obsession with barbers and grooming has been fixture since childhood. Recently I have been a bit adventurous with adding distinct elements to my barber experience like growing out my beard and adding stripes to signify the number of decades I have lived. Little ways to spice up the standard one blade Cesar cut.
Haircuts are essential no matter the length. A guaranteed new attitude and instant refresh. Be about it!
