Back to Basics I have decided to go in a slightly different direction this year, As well as sharing my indispensable insights into dating I am to explore the world of fashion and male grooming. It’s a natural progression for someone with an eye for style and impeccable taste. I hope to educate the men of Ireland sartorially and holistically. If you care about attention to detail, want to impress the ladies and more importantly want to be the best version of yourself follow my blog for more.

First I want to look at some grooming essentials that you may be getting wrong.

Fingernails; They should be short and clean, end of story. There is no excuse for long nails; ever. Every man should invest in a decent nail care kit. Trim them regularly and file, a glass file is best but the small metal one is adequate, no need for the big pink ones your girlfriend has. Ladies should yearn for your touch not be repelled by Wolveriene like claws. It doesn’t matter if you pick potatoes with your bare hands keep them clean and neat.

Eyebrows; Eyebrows are like a referee in sport, they won’t be noticed unless they are bad. Ask your barber to trim them when you are in, I’m sure I’d look great with manicured brows like the Galway Brow made famous by Ruth and the ladies in Heaven Scent but we can leave that to the ladies. Unibrows are a no no obviously, borrow a pair of tweezers and get it sorted. Nobody wants to look like this lad….

Back hair; Chest hair is an interesting issue, I have found that in themain women like something extra on your person to play with. In addition scientist have associated intelligence with chest hair, however you don’t need a PHd to know that back hair is associated with loneliness and a lack of sex. It’s nothing to be ashamed of just deal with it, get a good friend to shave it, (unlikely) electrolysis (an option) or just man up and get it waxed.

Nose hair/ Ear Hair; Its not just old people that need to keep and eye on this unfortunate growth. Even in your early thirties stay hairs can appear like weeds in the footpath they are unnecessary and need to be eradicated expediently. Happily there are many excellent trimmers available at good prices in most chemist’s, get it sorted.

Hair care; I will be going into this subject in much great detail soon but hairs are like sex you should be getting them very regularly. At a stretch I’d say every four to six weeks, you shouldn’t wait until people are telling you, you need a haircut. A good haircut makes you feel and look great. When it comes to haircare you can shampoo as often as possible as long as you use the right product for you. When it comes to gel, less is more you don’t need to go all Ronaldo on it, if they could fry a portion of chips from the grease in your hair nobody will want to run their fingers through it and swimming could be hazardous to the local wildlife.
