Mens grooming tips to help you look your best throughout the festival season.
That’s right festival season is upon us once more and the only thing the Pall Mall Barbers like more than cutting hair is listening to great music. The team at Pall Mall Barbers have been known to go to quite a few gigs and festivals in our time and here are our mens grooming tips to looking great during a festival. It is important for a Pall Mall Gentleman to look great in all scenarios (you never know who could be checking you out).

Use Talc to Refresh and Cleanse
Ok, our first mens grooming tips is to rub a small amount of talc in a circular motion onto your hair. This will gather the product up into a small ball. This is also a great way of getting oil-based products out of the hair. Start with a small amount – the last thing you want to do is look like a festival-going ghost.
Always Wear Protection… on your beard!
Gentlemen with beards are prone to getting lucky at festivals (.. in our experience),  so make sure that you are protected with Pall Mall Barbers beard oil. It stops the beard from going fly away from any moisture in the air and leaves the beard smelling fantastic too. Our beard oil is in a handy “fit in your pocket” tube making more space in your bag for other essentials.
Like these mens grooming tips? Here are a few more..
Use Soft Non-Setting Products
Use a lighter product that does not leave a residue such as Pall Mall Barbers Pliable Clay, or Light Dressing Cream.
Why? Well for one there are amazing products that have been formulated by the boffins at Pall Mall Barbers towers. But the main reason is that you can shake out a light product and style again in the morning, this is a great mens grooming tip because it gives you a massive advantage in looking fresher than the other guys there.
Wet Wipes and Moisturiser
A quick once over with non-scented wet wipes will keep you fresh as a daisy but lads it is so important to moisturise if you’re out in the elements all day. Try using our post shave balm, it is a double duty moisturiser and skin protector, so not only will your skin be moisturised it will be protected from the sun’s harmful rays.

Smell Good & Get the Girls
Different fragrances have different lasting factors. A good way of remembering this is
• Aftershave – fades the soonest
• Eau de Toilette – fades after a few hours
• Eau de parfum– Last the longest
The Pall Mall Barbers recommend our Sandalwood and Clove fragrance. It lasts for a nice amount of time and is not overbearing. Most of all the female Pall Mall Barbers find the smell attractive (needless to say the male side of PMB are now all applying it).
Freshen Up the Day Before
Our last bit of advice would be to visit the barbershop as close to your festival visit as possible. A good barber will give you a shave closer than what you will get at home with minimum irritation. Therefore your shave will last longer keeping you looking sharp throughout the entire festival. In regards to your hair cut there are no mirrors or hairdryers in a field so ensure that you have a style that is easy to style and wear. It may be time for a restyle Sir.
So there you have our mens grooming tips to help you survive the festival season.  Enjoy!
