History has shown a trend of increasing popularity of male grooming. The Egyptian era recorded uses of the aloe vera plant, bathing milk and oils to remain hygienic. The Romans could not achieve their massive empire without following the regime of the Egyptian men. The Roman Empire was one of the first to develop male hair dyes, which had the affinity to be corrosive enough for men to lose their hair completely! Unlike the eras before where male grooming was not as popular, the 21st century is without question, the largest boom for male grooming.
With the world transitioning to a digital era, social media has become a dominant force in choosing the seasonal trends of hairdressing, the opinions and arguments found on Instagram and Twitter feeds can clearly display the importance of men remaining well-groomed. Men take pride in their hair, beard and styling products from taking selfies to male grooming events such as the Gentleman’s Grooming & Lifestyle show! The global market value of the UK’s male grooming has been estimated increased from £774m in 2012 to £608m in 2017. Only 30% of men have stated that they do not remove any hair and keep it intact. What was once deemed unnatural or forbidden by many males, today’s time has paved the way for a plethora of men’s grooming products and services ranging from gels, shampoos, conditioners, pastes, shaving equipment and much more!
