alt=\"DIY Beard Oil and Aftershave to Beef Up Dad&rsquo;s Grooming Routine\" /></p>\n<p>Dads come in two models: those with facial hair and those without. But whether they&rsquo;re sporting a full beard, a goatee, mutton chops, or a clean-shaven mug, there&rsquo;s some <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/goods/v1-shaving\" target=\"_blank\">upkeep</a> necessary.</p>\n<p>Enter these easy-to-make DIY <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/occasion/fathers-day-gifts\" target=\"_blank\">Father&rsquo;s Day gifts</a>, which will beef up and fancify Pop&rsquo;s grooming routine. For fuzzy fellows, mix up the <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-billy-jealousy-beard-wash-and-beard-oil-set\" target=\"_blank\">beard oil</a>, which strengthens whiskers and prevents dry skin. Smooth-faced men can spritz on the aftershave for moisturizing razor-burn relief. And, thanks to essential oils, both concoctions smell good, which is a requirement for dads&mdash;or at least husbands&mdash;in our book.</p>\n<p>Once you&rsquo;ve bottled the mixtures, add the finishing touch of <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/occasion/customizable\" target=\"_blank\">printable labels</a> inspired by vintage apothecary packaging. They even say &ldquo;Made with Love,&rdquo; ensuring that your effort for DIY <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/occasion/fathers-day-spa-grooming-gifts\" target=\"_blank\">Father&rsquo;s Day gifts</a> trumps that of your brother, who always just draws a smiley face on a rock and calls it a paperweight.</p>\n<h2>Beard Oil</h2>\n<p><img alt=\"diy beard oil\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/kz6z9pfxjfejhEyQQadGrR/diy-beard-oil-600x390/v1/c600x390.jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /><img alt=\"fathers day beard\" class=\"alignright\" style=\"float: right; margin: 0px 0px 0px 10px; display: block; z-index: 100;\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/aWMzLoqGPMYfAbg6tpb745/fathers-day-beard-250x385/v1/c250x385.jpg\" width=\"250\" height=\"385\" /></p>\n<p>Whether his beard is in the style of a lumberjack, a sea captain, a classics professor, or anything in between, it could use this oil.

alt=\"Nine Accessories Every Man Should Own by 30\" /></p>\n<p>Even if you&rsquo;re a stylish guy, navigating your 20s in style can be hard. You&rsquo;re growing out of your favorite college threads&mdash;culturally, and sometimes physically&mdash;while trying to find a more grown-up wardrobe for work and play.</p>\n<p>You need the right garments to transition into adulthood, but the right accessories can take men&rsquo;s style to the next level. (You&rsquo;d be surprised how quickly a sharp pair of shoes can make you feel like <a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/talking-style-icons-in-honor-of-black-history-month\" target=\"_blank\">Fred Astaire</a>.)

($34.99)</em></p>\n<h2>1. A stylish phone case.</h2>\n<p>Not only will it help prevent cracks and scratches, but a distinctive one will keep you from confusing your phone with someone else&rsquo;s. (Even after <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/scotch-whiskey-a-beginners-guide-fd\" target=\"_blank\">a scotch or two</a>.)</p>\n<h2>2. A leather belt.</h2>\n<p>Canvas belts are fine with shorts, but opt for leather with suiting and denim.</p>\n<h2>3. A watch.</h2>\n<p>Sure, your phone can tell time, but a great-looking timepiece shows a little extra effort.</p>\n<p><img alt=\"Watch detail shot\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/6jdU6U7AXhLmxxrp1diQod/Watch_detail_shot-600x390/v1/c600x390.jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h2>4. Sunglasses.</h2>\n<p>Specifically, sunglasses you didn&rsquo;t get for free at a bar. Classic Wayfarers go with anything from board shorts to boardroom suits, and matte-finish frames add a modern edge.</p>\n<h2>5. A leather wallet.</h2>\n<p>No one should be able to hear your wallet opening. Swap velcro for Italian leather, and don&rsquo;t be afraid to experiment with color. Black and brown are timeless, but navy and merlot are beautiful alternatives.</p>\n<h2>6. Oxfords.</h2>\n<p>There&rsquo;s more to a shoe collection than sneakers and whatever you wear to weddings. An oxford is versatile enough to pair with jeans, <a href=\"http://www.ideel.com/events/239862/offers/16127346/latest_view/3843374?from_ppr=1\" target=\"_blank\">tailored shorts</a>, <em>and</em> suits.</p>\n<p><img alt=\"Oxfords detail shot\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/kZoNdvCKyF4ceeahfqZTe7/Oxfords_detail_shot-600x390/v1/c600x390.jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h2>7. A scarf.</h2>\n<p>Whether you&rsquo;re wearing a suit and an overcoat or a bomber jacket and jeans, a scarf in a luxury textile polishes off the look.</p>\n<h2>8. Cufflinks.</h2>\n<p>They&rsquo;re a must for formal occasions&mdash;black-tie weddings, job interviews, getting knighted&hellip;</p>\n<h2>9. A messenger bag.</h2>\n<p>Think of it as the happy medium between a backpack and a briefcase. Look for a modern design with architectural details.</p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/occasion/ideel\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Men s ideel banner\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/862Pi1NWGkmhzh2z7HFm5g/Men_s_ideel_banner-601x150/v1/c601x150.jpg\" width=\"601\" height=\"150\" /></a></p>\n<h2>Up your game with more men's style tips:</h2>\n<p><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts-sb?utm_source=FAC_&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_campaign=US_GRGD&amp;linkId=11433702\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Men s haircuts article\" class=\"alignleft\" style=\"float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; display: block; z-index: 100;\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/8bcWimtDkqomXpZQexNGE8/Men_s_haircuts_article-600x390/v1/c200x130.jpg\" width=\"200\" height=\"130\" /></a></p>\n<h2><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts-sb?utm_source=FAC_&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_campaign=US_GRGD&amp;linkId=11433702\" target=\"_blank\">How Much Work Are These Men's Haircuts?</a><br /><br /><br /></h2>\n<p><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/i-have-a-wedding-in-vegas-and-nothing-to-wear-trunk-club-help-sb\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"Wedding vegas\" class=\"alignleft\" style=\"float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; display: block; z-index: 100;\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/aom5LdQnp4tkyAH9PHKYET/Wedding_vegas-600x390/v1/c200x130.jpg\" width=\"200\" height=\"130\" /></a></p>\n<h2><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/i-have-a-wedding-in-vegas-and-nothing-to-wear-trunk-club-help-sb\" target=\"_blank\">I Have a Wedding in Vegas and Nothing to Wear.

Not patchy at all. Probably tapered into the haircut, shorter on the sides than on the rest of the face.”\r\n\r\n<strong>On grooming products</strong>\r\n\r\nPaul Mitchell products do wonders for beards, he says. And “when people want to add a twist to their mustache—it’s kind of a Frenchman look—<a href=\"http://www.statestreetbarbers.com/featured/layrite-pomade\">Layrite</a> [Original Pomade] is good for doing that.”\r\n\r\n<strong>On maintenance</strong>\r\n\r\n“A lot of people think the beard is about being more lazy. But actually, having a beard, you should maintain it more often.” That means regular trims.\r\n\r\n“You should condition it and shampoo,” he says. “I would say, at least three times a week.” However, Rami recommends doing this less frequently if you have sensitive or dry skin.\r\n\r\n<strong>On that growing-in itch</strong>\r\n\r\nIt probably means you’re not shampooing and conditioning enough, or you have ingrown hairs. “Tea tree oil is the best thing for [ingrowns],” he says. Just dab it on problem areas.\r\n\r\n<strong>On beards without mustaches</strong>\r\n\r\n“It should never happen.”\r\n\r\n<strong style=\"font-size: 1.5em;\">Rami on Man Buns</strong>\r\n\r\n<strong>On the ideal face shape for a bun</strong>\r\n\r\nAnything but round. “The round face, [a bun] just kind of makes it look more round.”\r\n\r\n<strong>On distinguishing it from a woman’s bun</strong>\r\n\r\n“Don’t keep it so neat,” Rami says. “Have it a little bit messy, not so perfect.” He thinks Joakim Noah is a master of this, <a href=\"http://cdn.thedailybeast.com/content/dailybeast/articles/2013/05/15/joakim-noah-has-the-manliest-bun-ever/jcr:content/image.crop.800.500.jpg/1368651133987.cached.jpg\">which is true</a>.\r\n\r\n<strong>On keeping this “messy” style from getting sloppy</strong>\r\n\r\n“Make sure the sideburns don’t get too long, and the back of the neck is always trimmed up and tapered well.”\r\n\r\nMaintenance is also key when you’re growing out your hair. Go in for regular trims; the rest of the time, Rami recommends keeping your mid-length hair combed back.\r\n\r\n<em>Read more about <a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts-sb\">the man bun and other trending men’s hairstyles on the Groupon Guide</a>.</em>","created_on":"2014-09-22T18:43:38.000Z","fb_og_description":"","fb_og_title":"","imported":true,"last_modified_by":"IMPORT","last_modified_on":"2016-11-10T15:41:41.879Z","locale":"en_US","location":null,"meta_description":"I talked to a Chicago barber, who assured me they both require regular maintenance, great products, and some styling know-how.","mobile_title":"","permalink":"beard-and-man-bun-grooming-tips-fv","photos":[{"hero":true,"img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/bJpTVc6NhSWcf8M5peEz14/beard-and-man-bun-grooming-tips_600x390-600x390.jpeg","img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/bJpTVc6NhSWcf8M5peEz14/beard-and-man-bun-grooming-tips_600x390-600x390","altText":"Beards and Man Buns Are Not for the Lazy"},{"hero":false,"img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/jnknMpcNChQcQrHpsfrJ1D/state-street-barbers-deal-widget_600c157-600x157.jpeg","img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/jnknMpcNChQcQrHpsfrJ1D/state-street-barbers-deal-widget_600c157-600x157","altText":"state-street-barbers-deal-widget_600c157"}],"places":[{"m3_id":"c0d149fa-4780-b06a-747e-013a8fcb998a"}],"published":"PUBLISHED","published_on":"2014-09-22T18:43:38.000Z","published_permalinks":[],"secondary_categories":["dd7b4fa5-3032-498f-a963-f15c803fe91b","bbb66410-cda4-4468-90a2-a48d4c7c9023","294ea30b-dd37-49a1-9805-e9e6c7617902","dd7b4fa5-3032-498f-a963-f15c803fe91b"],"seo_title":"Beard and Man Bun Grooming Tips","tags":["style_and_beauty"],"title":"Beards and Man Buns Are Not for the Lazy","vhp_desc":"I’m not a guy, but I don’t want to leave guys out of my beauty blog.

He won the Chicago bracket with the robust beard pictured above, which was inspired by <em>300</em>’s King Leonidas.</p><p>Up next, he’ll compete in the national bracket (conducted via online poll). If he wins, he’ll receive $1,000 and star in Wahl’s national ad campaign.</p><p>Until then, Formica’s trying to stick with the beard style that won him the Chicago crown. He’s struggling with itchy fingers, though—he’s been sporting this look for more than six months.</p><p>To distract him from all the new beards he could try (he’s leaning toward Tony Stark’s), I chatted with him about all things beard-related.</p><p><strong>GROUPON: You’re an avid motorcyclist and do a lot of traveling. What’s the most beard-filled place you’ve visited?</strong></p><p>JOHN WAYNE FORMICA: I’d say San Francisco is a big one.</p><p><strong>G: Do you have to wear a beard net in the kitchen?</strong></p><p>JWF: No. I’m an OCD clean freak when I’m in the kitchen. I don’t think I have ever had plates returned to me with hair in them. It’s very rare, and it’s not mine. I have my techniques down.</p><p><strong>G: What’s a good meal for a bearded guy who doesn’t want to get food in his beard?</strong></p><p>JWF: Something that isn’t saucy. Stay away from soup. I’d say a great meal would be a steak. A manly meal to go with a manly beard. Or something roast—a roast meat of some kind.</p><p><strong>G: When did you grow your first beard?</strong></p><p>JWF: I’ve been growing beards my whole life. Being half-Italian, half-Lebanese—we’re a hairy people. I just kind of go with it. It changes all the time. Last Halloween I was Wolverine. [This beard] was inspired by Leonidas.</p><p><strong>G: What’s your beard grooming routine?</strong></p><p>JWF: I use Gillette ProGlide Mach 3 razors. Obviously, I use a beaver brush for lather. I have my new Wahl trimmer, so I use that, but I [also] actually use scissors. And I have to use tweezers because my hairline on my face goes all the way under my eyes.</p><p>I’m in business, I’m in media all the time. I’m ex-military, too, so I think you should always look your best. But I think you can have facial hair, be a man, and still look good in a suit. I think people have progressed a little more—or I guess history repeats, and we’re going back in time. You know, a long time ago, everybody had beards. It was a sign of, I guess, maturity.</p><p><strong>G: What tips do you have for people who want to replicate your look in the picture above?</strong></p><p>JWF: On the sides, it’s a number 2 on the trimmer. And then to get the lines, you have to use a tweezer. You can use a razor, too, but I like it to look really clean. And then really, the length? I let it go with the shape of my face, so it makes my face look a little bit longer. I just let it grow. Sometimes I trim it with scissors to even it up.</p><p><strong>G: I’ve heard that people stop you in the street to compliment your beard. What’s the most noteworthy compliment you’ve received?</strong></p><p>JWF: People thought I was actually Hugh Jackman once. I was in my motorcycle jacket, and people thought I was him. They were doing double takes.</p><p><strong>G: Last but not least—what are your thoughts on Abe Lincoln’s beard?</strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p><p><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-25774\" alt=\"beard-grooming-tips-from-a-man-competing-for-americas-best-beard_lincoln_600c600\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/6c91n1S5kfddp1VrjBDeDT/beard-grooming-tips-from-a-man-competing-for-americas-best-beard_lincoln_600c600-600x600.jpeg\" width=\"600\" height=\"600\"></p><p>JWF: Well, Abe Lincoln is synonymous with having a beard, especially in his later life right before he became president. There’s actually a story of why he grew facial hair. A little girl wrote him and said “You should grow facial hair,” and he wrote her a lovely reply and started growing a beard. Because she made a comment—your face looks skinny. If you look at a picture of him without a beard, his jawline kind of shrinks a bit to his cheekbones. He had such big cheekbones!</p><p>I think it looks good. I like having the mustache with it, though. That’s a little more me. I’d look horrible with just a mustache, though—it has to be the whole thing.</p><p><em>Photo courtesy of John Wayne \"Duke\" Formica</em></p><p><em>Shop Groupon for local deals at <a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/local/barber-shop\" target=\"_blank\">barber shops</a> or shop Groupon Goods for <a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/goods?category=health-and-beauty&amp;category2=v1-personal-care\" target=\"_blank\">personal-care</a> products like razors, shaving cream, and trimmers.</em></p><p><em><strong>Check out our other articles about men's fashion:</strong></em></p><div style=\"width: 100%; clear: both;\"><p></p><p></p><div style=\"float: left; width: 20%; margin-right: 25px;\"><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts-sb\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"how much work are these mens haircuts\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/mHVzJ3D8nsQiuj7my7BZbD/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_460x299-460x299.jpeg\" width=\"100%\"></a></div><p></p><p></p><div style=\"float: right; width: 75%;\"><strong><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/articles/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts-sb\" target=\"_blank\">How Much Work Are These Men’s Haircuts?</a></strong><p></p><p><em style=\"display: block;\">The products and time commitment required to pull off four trending styles.

Pulling off a certain look might require buying special products, shampooing frequently, or scheduling constant trims. With that in mind, we asked Kristina about four trending styles, which we&rsquo;ve ranked from easiest to hardest to maintain. See what she says it takes to rock them and decide if they&rsquo;re worth the effort.</p>\n<h2>1. Easy-breezy: the &ldquo;man bun&rdquo;</h2>\n<p><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-21890\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/kwQ3crPBtudnf6Rqpx6UqF/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_2b_600c390-600x390.jpeg\" alt=\"how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_2b_600c390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><strong>Who you&rsquo;ve seen it on:</strong> <a href=\"http://media.nbcchicago.com/images/620*349/Joakim+Noah+Assists+Father+Pfleger.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Joakim Noah</a>, <a href=\"http://www.thefashionisto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/jared-leto-man-bun.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Jared Leto</a></p>\n<p><strong>Why it&rsquo;s trending:</strong> For Kristina, this look is a perfect crystallization of modernity and tradition. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s just so natural for a man to let his hair grow and toss it on top of [his] head. &hellip; It&rsquo;s something that I would do as a woman. So I love that it&rsquo;s become this unisex image in a sense,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;But if you go back in time, men often had long hair and it was considered a very masculine image.&rdquo;</p>\n<p><strong>Time between cuts:</strong> 2&ndash;3 months. You could go longer, but &ldquo;the ends get tattered from being wound up,&rdquo; Kristina pointed out.</p>\n<p><strong>Maintenance level:</strong> Low. &ldquo;Any man I&rsquo;ve worked with who rocks the man bun is air-dry and go,&rdquo; Kristina said. And if you&rsquo;re forgoing product, you can shampoo your hair less often. &ldquo;The more natural oils [that] stay in the hair condition it and give great separation and piecey-ness [when you wear it down].&rdquo; She recommended maybe using a bit of coconut oil or jojoba oil to keep unwashed ends from getting dry.</p>\n<h2>2. Fairly simple: the shaved head</h2>\n<p><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-21876\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/knFCoqKVtdgexo1fNYzhmE/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_2_600c390-600x390.jpeg\" alt=\"how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_2_600c390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><strong>Who you&rsquo;ve seen it on: </strong><a href=\"http://www.nicewallpapers.in/hdwallpapers/mechanic-jason-statham-arthur-bishop-actor-wallpapers.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Jason Statham</a>, <a href=\"http://www.iol.co.za/polopoly_fs/tomhardy-1.1144107!/image/1065508382.jpg_gen/derivatives/box_300/1065508382.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Tom Hardy</a>, <a href=\"http://www.empireonline.com/images/uploaded/men-vin-diesel-bald-1711592293.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Vin Diesel</a></p>\n<p><strong>Why it&rsquo;s trending:</strong> There&rsquo;s probably a reason why this look is so popular with action-movie stars. As Kristina pointed out, &ldquo;it&rsquo;s so hot to see a man with a freshly shaved head because there&rsquo;s this level of confidence. &hellip; Plus, it&rsquo;s something you can do yourself, which I think is a really liberating experience, to cut your own hair.&rdquo;</p>\n<p><strong>Time between cuts:</strong> 1&ndash;2 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows.</p>\n<p><strong>Maintenance level:</strong> Considering you&rsquo;re only de-stubbling every week or two, it&rsquo;s pretty low-maintenance. But when you do shave, Kristina recommended taking as much care as you would with your face. First, open the pores with a hot shower or by wrapping your head with a hot towel for a few minutes. &ldquo;Make sure [to use] a high-quality blade that supports sensitive skin,&rdquo; Kristina said.

Less work than it looks like: the undercut</h2>\n<p><img class=\"alignnone size-full wp-image-21877\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/997nNUWK59gbEcSAxbMST/how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_3_600c390-600x390.jpeg\" alt=\"how-much-work-are-these-mens-haircuts_3_600c390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><strong>Who you&rsquo;ve seen it on:</strong> <a href=\"http://www.interviewmagazine.com/files/2012/01/08/img-david-lynch-01-_184117216071.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">David Lynch</a>, <a href=\"http://screencrave.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Boardwalk-Empire-Peg-of-Old-Michael-Pitt1-e1321298211908.jpg\" target=\"_blank\">Michael Pitt</a></p>\n<p><strong>Why it&rsquo;s trending:</strong> &ldquo;It&rsquo;s more dramatic because there&rsquo;s such a difference between the sides, the back, and the top,&rdquo; Kristina said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re also seeing a lot of textures and patterns and colors being intermingled [in men&rsquo;s clothing]. &hellip; I think the undercut goes hand-in-hand with that.&rdquo;</p>\n<p><strong>Time between cuts:</strong> The top length can be trimmed monthly, but the sides will need to be touched up every 2&ndash;4 weeks depending on how tightly they&rsquo;re faded.</p>\n<p><strong>Maintenance level:</strong> Despite the high style of this look, it&rsquo;s deceptively low-maintenance. At most, straight-haired guys might want to add grit and hold with either dry shampoo, baby powder, or a styling cream. (Kristina particularly loves Bumble and bumble&rsquo;s <a href=\"http://www.bumbleandbumble.com/products/spp/index.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CAT75&amp;PRODUCT_ID=PROD217\" target=\"_blank\">sumotech</a> molding compound [$28].)

Who doesn&rsquo;t like that?&rdquo; Kristina said.</p>\n<p><strong>Time between cuts:</strong> Not long. &ldquo;The second this grows, it&rsquo;s just gonna get bulky or bushy in the wrong areas,&rdquo; Kristina said. &ldquo;You just want to keep it really clean and lean.&rdquo;</p>\n<p><strong>Maintenance level:</strong> Between the frequency of cuts and the potential for styling, it&rsquo;s high. &ldquo;Most men are using quite a bit of product to keep this in place, so you might have to shampoo more often,&rdquo; Kristina said. &ldquo;But it doesn&rsquo;t necessarily need to be blow-dried. Towel-dry really well, even let it air-dry in the morning while you drink a coffee. &hellip; Get your product in there while [the hair is] still a little damp, and then comb it into place.&rdquo; She said you&rsquo;ll also need to think about whether you prefer a product that gives you a matte or a high-shine finish.</p>\n<p><em>Photo: Andrew Nawrocki, Groupon</em></p>","created_on":"2014-05-16T19:11:04.000Z","deal_keywords":[],"fb_og_description":"The products and time commitment required to pull off four trending styles.

Instead, Joe Jr. was in charge of giving me my first </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/shave\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">straight-razor shave</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">A third-generation barber and the son of Joe Caccavella Sr.&mdash;the owner and founder of </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/joes-barbershop-chicago\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Joe&rsquo;s Barbershop</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> in Logan Square&mdash;Joe Jr. is a champion of the methods used in </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">old-school barbershops</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, especially the </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">straight-razor shave</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, a.k.a, </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">hot-lather shave</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, which he calls a &ldquo;dying art.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">It&rsquo;s still alive at Joe&rsquo;s, though. The shop has been doing the classic </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">men&rsquo;s shave</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> since 1968, hewing to the same labor-intensive process that once made the practice a popular pastime for guys.</span></p>\n<h2>Setting the Retro Stage</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Today, you need a special Illinois barber&rsquo;s license&mdash;separate from the cosmetologist license most salons and barbershops possess&mdash;to perform a </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">straight-razor, </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">hot -lather </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">shave</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. No problem there: Joe&rsquo;s is fully licensed, and for $20, you get a buttery-soft face and a ticket back in time.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Not that the shop's throwback feel is some calculated ploy. You get the sense that the antique cash register, formica barber&rsquo;s chests, and eight-track player set to an endless Sinatra loop are there not because of a retro design firm's recommendations, but because the shop never saw a reason to update them. Joe&rsquo;s is also small, with just three barber's chairs and a clutter of Harley-Davidson signs and pomade cans that lend it a decidedly masculine vibe.</span></p>\n<p><a title=\"Get a Straight-Razor Shave\" href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/shave\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/48KHred93jK7pLgaqJVP7KGVxyGU/Barber_Shop_jpg-600x100\" alt=\"Shop Men's Grooming Services\" width=\"600\" height=\"100\" /></span></a></p>\n<h2>Prepping the Manly Face</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Once I'd settled into the barber's chair, Joe Jr. laid a hot towel on my face. The hot towel is meant to warm the skin and open up the pores, but it also felt like a prelude. It lulled me into a leisurely state of mind that seemed in tune with the easygoing atmosphere.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">After removing the towel, Joe Jr. massaged hot lather into my skin in circular motions. The purpose of the lather is twofold: it cleanses the face of any debris and dead skin, and it raises the hairs to make for swift and fluid removal. The spiraling hand movements made my face go lax, and the lather made it tingle.</span></p>\n<h2>Conversing with the Past</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Sinatra crooned through the eight-track all the while. </span><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When I was 21</span></em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">,</span> <span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">he sang, </span><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">it was a very good year</span></em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. That was enough to inspire an oration from Joe Sr., who was cutting hair in the next chair over. &ldquo;Enjoy your youth,&rdquo; he said to the customers waiting their turn. &ldquo;I started cutting hair when I was 21, right after I got back from Vietnam. Now I&rsquo;m 66. But I still love this song.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Banter is a big part of the </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/old-school-barber-shop\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">old-school barbershop</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">&rsquo;s charm, and Joe&rsquo;s did not lack for dialogue. As Joe Jr. prepped my face, he expounded on marriage, beards, and what makes for an authentic barbershop. &ldquo;Any real barbershop should have wood panels, [mounted] fish on the walls, and at least one Italian man,&rdquo; he told me. I would&rsquo;ve scanned the room to confirm the presence of the panels and fish (I already knew that Joe Sr. hailed from Foggia, Italy), but my face was immersed in a second hot towel and I had no intention of moving it.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3B99QKZCdsVPUs7gMTM3Dekkay5C/Straight-Razor_Hot-Lather_Shave_jpg-600x390\" alt=\"Straight-Razor Hot-Lather Shave\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></span></p>\n<h2>Performing the Vintage Ritual</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Joe Jr. used a total of four hot towels throughout my </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">straight-razor shave</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, applying them between handfuls of oils, lathers, and creams. Surprisingly, this made me feel simultaneously sedate and invigorated, like I might doze off and then dream of doing jumping jacks.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But I forced myself to stay awake. I wanted to feel the blade mow my skin, to experience the thrill and twinge of danger I thought would come from having a straight razor pressing against my face. Joe Jr. smeared shaving cream along my cheeks, mustache, chin, and neck, and finally brought out the blade.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I&rsquo;ve never been one for machismo, but as the sharp blade grazed my skin, I could almost feel my Y chromosomes flexing their muscles. Joe Jr. moved the razor deliberately along the grain, pulling the skin taut while explaining that the tighter the skin, the better the shave. This was the first part of the shave, a \"once-over\" to remove the bulk of the hair.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">During part two, the &ldquo;close shave,&rdquo; Joe Jr.&rsquo;s artistry was on full display. He whittled away the remnants of my mustache, pared down stray patches of whiskers, and shaped my sideburns to my exact specifications. A cold towel, a couple palmfuls of Bay Rum </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/goods/moisturizer?brand=240bed9b-a0c2-43a4-bac5-566504b10fd5\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">aftershave</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, and some talc powder stirred me back to the world of the wakeful.</span></p>\n<h2>The Dapper Aftermath</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I hadn&rsquo;t seen&mdash;or felt&mdash;my bare face in years, and both sensations were jarring. My fingers practically slid off my chin when out of habit I went to stroke it. My skin felt soft enough to poke my finger through. I looked younger and felt it, too. Later that night, I tried to buy a drink and a bartender asked to see my ID. It the first time in years that had happened.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">That&rsquo;s what surprised me. It turns out the hot-lather treatment isn&rsquo;t just a shave; it&rsquo;s an indulgence. Joe Jr. calls it a &ldquo;manly facial&rdquo; and tells me he has beardless clients that come just for the experience. If I&rsquo;d heard that yesterday, I&rsquo;d have called them crazy.</span></p>","created_on":"2016-07-18T20:06:45.010Z","last_modified_on":"2016-07-22T10:41:54.905Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Scott Hirsch","author":"1ac7ceee-9ba5-417e-b01e-4760acb3776f","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"Straight-Razor Shaves Are How Manly Men Pamper Themselves","meta_description":"One old-school barbershop showed our writer how straight-razor, hot-lather shaves can make men feel both manly and pampered at the same time.","fb_og_title":"Straight-Razor Shaves Are How Manly Men Get Pampered","fb_og_description":"One old-school barbershop showed our writer how straight-razor, hot-lather shaves can make men feel both manly and pampered at the same time.","vhp_desc":"<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">One </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">old-school barbershop</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> in Chicago showed our writer how </s...","tags":["HBW","barbershop"],"category":"dd7b4fa5-3032-498f-a963-f15c803fe91b","secondary_categories":["dd7b4fa5-3032-498f-a963-f15c803fe91b","dd7b4fa5-3032-498f-a963-f15c803fe91b"],"published":"PUBLISHED","photos":[{"altText":"Straight_Razor_Shave_jpg-600x390","caption":"Straight_Razor_Shave_jpg-600x390","hero":true,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3PHJrd1hXkiNBAr4z63nRi7i9qcq/Straight_Razor_Shave_jpg-600x390","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3PHJrd1hXkiNBAr4z63nRi7i9qcq/Straight_Razor_Shave_jpg-600x390"},{"altText":"Barber_Shop_jpg-600x100","caption":"Barber_Shop_jpg-600x100","hero":false,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/48KHred93jK7pLgaqJVP7KGVxyGU/Barber_Shop_jpg-600x100","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/48KHred93jK7pLgaqJVP7KGVxyGU/Barber_Shop_jpg-600x100"},{"altText":"Straight-Razor_Hot-Lather_Shave_jpg-600x390","caption":"Straight-Razor_Hot-Lather_Shave_jpg-600x390","hero":false,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3B99QKZCdsVPUs7gMTM3Dekkay5C/Straight-Razor_Hot-Lather_Shave_jpg-600x390","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3B99QKZCdsVPUs7gMTM3Dekkay5C/Straight-Razor_Hot-Lather_Shave_jpg-600x390"}],"schemaOrgAttr":{},"permalink":"straight-razor-shaves-and-the-pampered-man","places":[],"validationError":[],"id":"8fe31113-9cb4-4280-b75e-11c6db95cdab","published_on":"2016-07-22T10:41:58.078Z","guid":"8fe31113-9cb4-4280-b75e-11c6db95cdab","imageUrl":"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3PHJrd1hXkiNBAr4z63nRi7i9qcq/Straight_Razor_Shave_jpg-600x390/v1/c140x85.png","bodyColumns":"nine","url":"/articles/straight-razor-shaves-and-the-pampered-man"},{"locale":"en_US","title":"How One Old-School Barber Shop Stays Current While Honoring Traditions","imported":false,"mobile_title":"","name":"","article_type":"","content":"<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Joe Caccavella Jr. has far more invested in </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/joes-barbershop-chicago\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Joe&rsquo;s Barbershop</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> than his name.

Most came straight from work, security ID badges hanging off dress slacks. Some had plans afterward with wives or friends. But in the two hours I spent at <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/joes-barbershop-chicago\" target=\"_blank\">Joe&rsquo;s Barber Shop</a> in Chicago one Thursday night, nobody seemed to care about work or wives.</p>\n<p>Joe&rsquo;s has five barber&rsquo;s chairs open on Thursday evenings, and they were full all night. Those waiting drank a complimentary can of classic Coors, stocked in a mini-fridge by the door. The conversations changed fast. So did the music (Pink Floyd bled into Mot&ouml;rhead), and so did the shaggy-haired men who climbed into the seafoam-green chairs, only to climb out with classic fades, slickbacks, or punkish Caesar cuts.</p>\n<p>Because of that constant flux, time barely seemed to tick off the clock. And the vibe was hard to pin down. The barbershop felt part barroom, part bathhouse, part time warp. Though since the shop so intoxicates you (both figuratively and literally, thanks to that Coors), by the time you walk out you couldn&rsquo;t care less how to categorize it. You just got a great haircut, and you had a great time doing it.</p>\n<p>There&rsquo;s a ton of energy bouncing off Joe&rsquo;s wood-paneled walls, some of it undoubtedly well-aged from the shop&rsquo;s nearly 50-year history, 30 spent at this location. It is perhaps the most old-school barber shop in what is America&rsquo;s most old-school town&mdash;Chicago.</p>\n<p><img alt=\"Barber shop storefront\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/i7ftoGvuwmLfeANSKQbXEz/Barber_shop_storefront-2048x1367/v1/c600x390.jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p>Joe Sr. was born in Italy, graduated from barber school in 1964, and opened Joe&rsquo;s Barbershop in 1968, after he got back from Vietnam. He&rsquo;s been at this location for 30 years, and in 2010, his son Joe Jr. joined him at the shop.</p>\n<h2><em>\"There's not many places like this left. Maybe bars and pool halls.

They include taper and styling varieties.</span></li>\n<li><span style=\"line-height: 1.42857143;\"><strong>The Clippers</strong>, to cut. They come in three varieties: the powerhouse, taper, and trim.</span></li>\n<li><span style=\"line-height: 1.42857143;\"><strong>The Blades</strong>, to fit into the clippers.

Up until 2014, Joe&rsquo;s had just two barber&rsquo;s chairs. Around 2007, they began to see an uptick in business, something Joe Jr. recognized as part of a larger national trend toward traditional grooming, even referencing period TV shows <em>Mad Men</em> and <em>Boardwalk Empire</em>. The resurgence quickly led to two-hour waits. So they remodeled the shop, and now they have six chairs with room for a seventh. What remains is the wood paneling&mdash;except now there&rsquo;s twice as much.</p>\n<p><img alt=\"Joe Sr s chair\" class=\"artimg\" title=\"\" src=\"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/6vYVXwxkV1yn4HQPSgFT4F/Joe_Sr__s_chair-2048x1367/v1/c600x390.jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p>Joe Sr. doesn&rsquo;t work on Thursdays or on Sundays.
