Oribe
AIR STYLE FLEXIBLE FINISH CREAM ($50)

For a soft, flexible texture and a moisturizing satin finish, this Flexible Finish Cream is a whipped-crème confection that elegantly shortcuts to next-day hair and subdued frizz with separation that can be reworked until the next day actually comes. All you need is a small dab worked through dry hair.

Kérastase
BAUME DENSITÉ HOMME ($40)

Baume Densité Homme is a texturizing molding hair paste for men with thinning hair concerns. This paste for men instantly densifies hair fiber, and has a super flexible hold that is clean to the touch. Hair mass appears immediately fuller after using, making it ideal for finer hair that needs volume.

Shu Uemura
KENGO FEATHER ($42)

Hair cream that provides strong, lasting hold without weighing down strands or leaving unwanted residue, Kengo Feather provides heat protection and humidity resistance. The cream’s soft shine adds subtle dimension and smoothness and is great for creating that perfect slicked back style.

R+co
MOTORCYCLE ($32)

This super shine gel gives your hair strong, long lasting hold, no matter if you’re slicking it back or creating a more voluminous look. This gel is perfect for a variety of looks from waves and pom-padour to sleek and chic.

Shu Uemura
SHAPE PASTE SCULPTING PUTTY ($42)

This putty is a sculpting pomade that adds hold and texture to create a piecey, semi-matte finish. The creamy formula, which is neither stiff nor sticky, offers workability with subtle shine. This formula has become a cult classic amongst male and female patrons alike.

Flow
INSTANTINTENSITY™ 30 SECOND TREATMENT ($34)

Use this mask weekly to replenish moisture, repair damage and restore strength to the hair. It delivers a highly concentrated treatment with zero processing time or added weight. All it takes is just one use and you can give her back that noticeable shine, revitalized style-ability and a revolutionary natural movement. Not only is instantINTENSITY™ great for a little hair indulgence, but it keeps it healthy while doing it—it’s free of sulfates, 100% sustainably made, sodium chloride, parabens and formaldehyde donors.

Oribe
DRY TEXTURIZING SPRAY ($53)

For bigger, better, and fuller hair, this invisible dry hair spray builds incredible volume and creates a sexy texture. Great for fine hair that needs some grit and guts with a matte finish. Flexible buildable hold.

Saving Face

Thanks to the sheer volume of product options, skincare can be daunting at best and extremely confusing at worst. Maybe that’s why so many men have no skincare routine to speak of—they just don’t want to put in the effort to figure it out. But here’s a pro tip – a solid skincare routine makes a huge difference. All-in-one products just won’t cut it anymore! Start saving face now with an age defying routine and these wonder-working products.

Giorgio Armani
CREMA NERA REVIVING VOLCANIC MASK ($280)

Formulated with 99% naturally derived ingredients, this new face mask combines regenerative and anti-aging properties with a sensory experience. With the power of the miracle plant extract Reviscentalis, Armani’s Crema Nera Reviving Volcanic Mask revives, protects, and purifies the skin.

Dr. Dennis Gross
CLARIFYING COLLOIDAL CLAY MASK ($55)

This time absorbent mask draws sebum, pollutants, impurities, and bacteria out of your skin overnight. It features an array of powerful yet gentle active ingredients that calm redness, smooth the look of wrinkles, and deeply hydrate. Great for all skin types, it enhances overall clarity of your skin for a refreshed complexion by morning.

Tom Ford
INTENSIVE PURIFYING MUD MASK ($86)

A velvety mud mask that draws out impurities for a clean, nourished complexion, this time-signaling mud mask counters the dulling and irritating effects of a busy lifestyle on the skin. As the mask turns light gray, it draws out oil, dirt, and toxins while diminishing the look of tension lines, leaving your skin hydrated and conditioned.

Mirigal
HIGH VOLTAGE OIL ($168)

Mirigal High Voltage Oil is an organic blend of high-potency essential and carrier oils, perfect for all skin types. Together they create a serum that is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, that absorb instantly into the skin to reveal a sheer transparent glow while nourishing, hydrating and smoothing out imperfections.

Aesop
SEEKING SILENCE HYDRATOR ($79)/span>

Male skin produces more sebum, which contributes to uncomfortable sensations associated with skin reactivity, manifesting with visible signs such as redness. Seeking Silence, in a timely manner, responds to this process and offers pacification to skin that is susceptible to distress. It also makes a wonderful post-shave treatment.

Dr. Dennis Gross
PORE PERFECTING & REFINING SERUM ($86)

A silicone-free pore treatment that tackles existing pores and helps prevent new blackheads from forming, this pore-perfecting treatment features farnesol, adipic acid, and agarikon mushroom to help dissolve waxy buildup within pore walls and flush away impurities. The Alpha Beta® complex supports natural cell turnover and helps reduce future blockage.
