A Girls Guide to Grooming a Beautiful Beard

How to take care of your beard!

1. Beard wash. A gentle, silicone free cleanser will remove dust, debris, and cleanse your face underneath. Thorough washing will also help to relieve itchiness and beard flakes.

2. Beard Softener. Similar to hair conditioner, it is designed to condition and support a soft supple beard.

3. Beard Comb/Brush. After you have properly and thoroughly cleansed your beard, you will need to detangle and comb it out. Just ’cause you get a little out of control every now and then doesn’t mean your beard should do the same. Use a wide tooth comb at first, moving to a more fine tooth after the tangles are out. Beard oil may help in this step to get out any unruly tangles.

4. Beard Oil. This step is best when your beard is still damp from a shower. Oil can be applied when dry also. Start from the top, closest to your face and gently massage in dime sized amounts until you reach the end. Continue to comb the oil through to ensure your beard is evenly coated yet not greasy. The benefits of a beard oil that is made of high quality essential oils is it aids with mood and takes you to the wild. When smelling the Timberline Trail, you become transported to the Pacific Northwest with the lingering scent of sub alpine fir, spruce and pine, spring water, charred firewood, late-summer wild berries and glacial silt! If that’s not your thing you can pay homage to your ‘Four Vices’. It’s scent is earthy and subtle, blending together the notes of coffee, tobacco, cannabis and hops.

If you can not grow a beard, instantly update your manly look in a playful way with this trim-fitting crewneck T-shirt.

The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book 2015 has Arrived!

Neiman Marcus is known for the ultimate in luxury gift giving. This year notably there is a fantasy gift experience that is a first production Arch Motorcycle Company KRGT-1 motorcycle that is designed to be ridden. The company was created by Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger and the fantasy includes a two day California coastal ride with Reeves and Hollinger for you and a guest.

NMO5643_mxAnother less fantasy, Shinola Detroit, American luxury through American quality. I had no idea Shinola Detriot was sold at Neiman Marcus. Which pulled at my heart strings because we operate from Michigan very near Detroit as well.  Midwest fashion and forward.
