Best Grooming Essentials and Where to Find Them

By John Legaspi


One month has come and gone since we were asked to stay indoors as the country battles coronavirus. Now, our work and lifestyle are centered at home, bringing new kinds of challenges we have to cope with, which we must balance with wellness and keeping cabin fever at bay.

This new setup also affects the way we dress ourselves every day. For the gents, joggers and sweatshirts that are usually reserved for trips to the gym have become the new dress code during office hours. By this time, your long abstinence from grooming and appointments with your barber has made your hair unruly, with excessive facial hair to match. Suddenly you look into the mirror and see a man good enough to be cast for the next run of Survivor.

While you’re making plans to groom yourself, why not help another brother out? Among the workers affected by the enhanced community quarantine are people from the salon industry. Felipe and Sons barbershop is now open for pre-payment services. This initiative aims to help out their barbers who can’t go out to work because shops are closed. The payment will go straight to the team, and by the time the quarantine is lifted, you may go to their barbershop to get your service. Besides, after your DIY haircut, you might need a professional barber to fix it.
