The Process to Achieve your desired Beard Style

 

First is check the thickness of your beard and compare it to the beard style that you desire, considering the color, the texture, length, and the face structure because all of this are factors that are going to help you to decide if the beard that you chose matches to what you plan or if you need to find another style that can give the best look on you. And also, it is very important to have a proper Artist to advise and guide you on how to shape your beard, or else you are just wasting your time before you even begin.

Consultation is very important to know if the ideal beard that you desire is suitable for you

 

The Struggle of Growing/Maintaining your Beard

 

1st Struggle – Beard Itchiness: It is expected that you will feel a lot of itchiness in the first few weeks/months because your skin is trying to adapt to the new changes and your pores are open all the time.

Solution – Use a proper moisturizer or beard balm for your maintenance, it will not go completely but it will make it more manageable.

 

Beard Itchiness SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

Beard Itchiness is the most common struggle for people who are planning to grow their beards.

 

2nd Struggle – Beard Roughness: The beard texture is quite different than our hair texture. The beard hair is rougher and it could take 1-3 months before it becomes soft, this is the most common reason that a lot of people give up on growing their beard.

Solution – Use a proper beard brush and make sure that you brush your beard often, this will help your beard texture to be a lot smoother and will give you comfort while you are growing your beard to your desired style.

It is very important to have a Beard Brush if you are planning for a Thick Beard Style

3rd Struggle – Smell, Dead Skin, and Hair Ingrown: This is caused by people who usually wash their beard without properly drying their beard which causes the smell, Dead skin is caused by not using the proper cleaning agent for your Beard and the Ingrown is caused when the dead skin cells clog hair follicles, forcing the hair to grow at a different angle under your skin.

Solution – Use a proper Beard Shampoo and not the same Hair Shampoo when washing your beard, also properly drying your beard always and not leaving it wet.

 

Beard Washing SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

Washing your Beard with a proper Beard Shampoo is one of the most important steps in Maintaining your Beard.

4th Struggle – Beard Doesn’t Look Good 24/7: The main problem why people struggle on this is because since the beginning they were advised wrongly by their Barber thus once the beard is grown, they provide an alternate solution to match the ideal beard that they desire, whether by coloring, straightening, or any chemical procedure to achieve the desired shape and texture.

Solution – Before you plan something, always have a Consultation with a professional and experienced stylist so that you don’t waste your time and get the ideal style suitable for you.

Previous Episode SKILLS Talk – Episode 11 “MUST-HAVE GROOMING PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE STAYING IN DUBAI”

 

SKILLS Talk – Episode 12 “GET THE BEST HAIRSTYLE BY YOURSELF”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some tips and advice on how to get the best hairstyle by yourself.

 

Tip #1. NEVER neglect your hair wash – The hair wash is the MAIN KEY in achieving the best hairstyle. Your hair like your skin is made with a special type of protein called “Keratin” that is found in your hair fiber, when the hair fiber gets dry your hair will always go to the direction of your hair growth and you will only able to control it if the hair is wet. That’s why whenever you wash your hair with the proper shampoo and conditioner, the ingredients inside will make your hair more manageable and flexible when you begin your hairstyle.

 

Hairwash at SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

Hairwash is the most important and the first initial step in achieving an easy hairstyle.

 

Tip #2. PROPER usage of the Hair Dryer – The main purpose of the Hair Dryer is to dry the hair out and at the same ironing the hair fiber while maintaining the proper direction for the hairstyle that you are trying to achieve or your hair can stay still. The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage, and if you go for a short time you will achieve nothing or your hairstyle will only last you for a few hours, and that depends on the quality of the hairdryer, temperature and your hair thickness and texture. How do you find all that answer? Just ask your barber about all these specific details.

 

 

Proper Usage of Hairdryer at SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage.

 

Tip #3. The TECHNIQUE of using the Brush – There are many different types of brush with different types of use. The most common brush which is the Rolling brush, and as small as its size that will produce a sleek hair finish, and if the size is bigger that means you are increasing the puff. The puff is produced by the proper technique of the hairbrush along with the hairdryer. So if the direction that you like is against your hair mood then you have to make sure that you need to use the small rolling brush on the roots only with the short timing while your hairdryer is set in the highest temperature, that is the only way that you can control your hair against the natural direction. With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle and you can direct your hair in any direction.

 

Rolling Brush Technique at SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle.

Tip #4. CHOOSE the Proper Hair Product for your Finishing – Make sure you use the proper hair product for yourself, if you are looking for a puffy hairstyle avoid using any hair product that will give you sleek finishing look like Pomade or Gel because it changes your hair fiber and it decreases the volume and there where you lose your puff. And if you are looking for a sleek hairstyle you need to make sure to avoid any Matte or Fiber because this will increase the puff in your hair and it is made only to increase the volume in your hair.

 

Left (Matte Finishing), Right (Sleek Finishing)

LEFT (Matte Finishing), RIGHT (Sleek Finishing)

If you want your hairstyle to last you long if you are going to any occasion, then make sure to use the Proper Hair Spray which is Matte or Shiny depending on your preference, because this will hold your hair longer than usual, and your hair will not be affected by sweat and will not allow your hair fiber to fight back to the way your original hair looks like because usually, the hairstyle will only survive 3 to 4 hours before it starts to fight back and make your hair mess.

 

Using Hairspray during the Style Finishing

Hairspray will add extra 4-8 hours of hold on your hairstyle.

Lastly, the most important thing is when you enjoy your hairstyle for the whole day you always need to wash it during the night or before your sleep because the hair product can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

 

Hairwashing at SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

Washing your hair at the end of the day is the most important tip that you should never forget to avoid hair damage.

 

That’s it for this episode, I hope you guys learned a lot from this episode on how to style your hair by yourself, leave a comment if you have any question and we will see you all again next week.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 11 “MUST-HAVE GROOMING PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE STAYING IN DUBAI”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the most important grooming products that you should have if you are a resident or you just started living here in Dubai.

 

Dubai is a beautiful city, a place of events, leisure and a lot of fun activities, but let’s not forget that the weather in this city especially in the summer is very hot and humid which can cause a lot of problems for our personal grooming care.

 

Haircare is very important if you are living in a Hot and Humid City like Dubai.

1st Product – Natural Shampoo and Conditioner

Make sure that you choose a Chemical-Free Shampoo/Conditioner and not just any Commercial Shampoo/Conditioner, having this product is a must, if you want to maintain the health and condition of your hair all throughout your stay in Dubai.

 

2nd Product – Hair Mask

The Hair Mask will make your hair more nourishable; it can help with the moisture and most importantly it can improve your scalp condition and boost the strength of your hair.

A proper combination of both can guarantee that all your hair care needs are covered and you won’t have to worry about suffering from any hair fall, dry scalp, dandruff, etc.

 

After Hair Care, let’s move on to Skin Care.

 

Skeyndor Home Skin Care for Men

Next to Haircare is for your Skincare, it is also very important to have.

3rd Product – Facial Cleanser

The main purpose of using the Facial Cleanser is to remove all the accumulated dirt, oil, dead skin, and bacteria that your skin has absorbed all throughout your work and lifestyle activities. There is a lot of different types of Facial Cleanser and you should really find the product that is most suitable for your type of skin.

 

4th Product – Face Moisturizer

Unlike the Facial Cleanser, the Moisturizer acts as a barrier for your skin and keeps it hydrated and healthy. With the proper Face Moisturizer, your skin can help its balance making it healthier to avoid any skin condition.

 

A proper combination of both can guarantee that all your daily skincare needs are met.

That’s it for this episode, there is a lot of products that you need but for today I will only stick with the most important ones, so make sure that you don’t neglect this advice in order for you to have a healthy skin and hair all throughout your stay in Dubai.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 10 “WHY THE FADE IS THE BEST HAIRCUT?”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the most popular and trendiest haircut/style called the “Fade”

 

Fade is considered to be the most popular haircut because of its elegant and classy look, it makes the person look sharp and neat that is why it is one of the most favorite types of Haircut that celebrities get due to the fact that it is very fashionable, can go with a lot of different hairstyles and it is perfect for all type of occasion or events.

 

Why Celebrities love the Fade

Fade is considered to be the most popular haircut because of its elegant and classy look.

There are 5 types of different fade style. It can go High Fade, Mid Fade, Low Fade, Taper, and Mohawk.

 

The type of fade varies depending on how aggressive you want your fade to look like, if you want to go for very aggressive then you go with the High Fade, if you want a little bit of aggressiveness and at the same time have semi elegant look then you stick with the Mid Fade, if you chose to be more elegant and classy then the Low Fade is for you.

 

5 Different Types of Fade Haircut

There are 5 Different Types of Fade, and the type varies depending on how aggressive you want your fade to look like.

If you want to have much lesser changes and you just mainly want to maintain your look but neater then the Taper is for you, Lastly, If you want to be more funky and stylish then the Mohawk is the best for you since it also can be aggressive depending as to how you chose to be depending on your hairstyle.

 

Once you’ve decided on the fade type the next process is to choose between the 3 types of finishing, 1st is the Dark Smooth finishing, Light Smooth finishing, and the Bald Skin finishing.

 

We decide the finishing based on your Head Structure, Hair Texture, Your Job or Industry, Age, and Hairstyle, all of this needs to be considered in order to achieve the proper or best result of the fade. That’s why it is very important to have the proper combination of the fade type and finishing.

The main key ingredients of Aquatherm are from vegetable and plant extracts that’s why it is more suitable for sensitive skin. This will make the skin barrier stronger, restores the skins PH levels, reduces the sensitivity of the skin, and fights the early signs of aging. And also, we have the Hyaluronic, Power C, and Corrective treatment for our other facial line.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 6 “THESE BAD HABITS ARE DAMAGING YOUR HAIR”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some of the most common bad habits that people do that are damaging their hair.

 

1. Using Commercial Shampoo over Chemical-free Shampoo

You should always avoid using a shampoo that has both Sulfates and Parabens because they strip your hair of its natural oils, making it dry and brittle. Instead, use natural shampoos that are made with natural plant oils and herb extracts, most commonly that has coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and Also don’t forget to use Conditioner because the shampoo alone is not enough.

 

Dry Hair when using commercial shampoo

Your hair gets dry when you use shampoos that have harmful chemical ingredients such as Parabens and Sulfates

2. Doing your Blowdrying near to the scalp

Holding the dryer too close for too long can literally fry the hair and burn the scalp, potentially causing permanent damage to the hair follicles resulting in hair loss and bald patches.

Blowdrying your hair too close and Brushing your hair too tight.

Never blowdry too near your scalp and brush your hair too rough with the brush.

3. Sleeping with Hair Product on your Hair

Products can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

 

Hair Products Styling Hair

Hair Products can clog your pores if not washed properly before you sleep.

4. Drying your hair forcefully with the towel

Using a towel is not generally bad but just rubbing your wet hair forcefully with a towel can lead to excessive hair breakage and hair fall. Its thick absorbent fibers when rubbed with the hair actually do more harm than good.

The hair can also become extremely frizzy as the towel ruffles up the cuticles of the hair. Moreover, the weight of the towel itself pulls down the hair, causing vulnerable strands to break.

 

Drying your Hair Roughly with the Towel

Another Bad Habit is Drying your hair Roughly with the Towel.

5. Neglecting to moisturize your hair after swimming in the pool or beach.

Both the chlorine and saltwater dry out the hair and strip away its natural oil, making the hair drier and thin. That’s why it is very important to rinse your hair after your swim to wash out all the chlorine and bacteria that was soaked up by your strands to avoid further damage.

 

Washing Hair Kevin Gates in Dubai at SKILLS Barbershop

Always rinse your hair after you go swimming outdoors and apply moisturizer on your hair to avoid any further damage.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 5 “AVOID PROBLEMS ON YOUR NEXT BEARD SHAVE”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about all that you need to know about shaving at home.

 

The most important points to know before you start your shaving is to have your very own Personal Shaving Kit with a Proper Shaving Gel, and always place them away from the Bathroom to avoid the accumulation of the Germs and Bacteria on your next shave. And if you are using disposable shavers make sure to only use it once.

THE SHAVING PROCESS

When you are ready to start your shave, always start by applying the Shaving Gel in a form of massage to your skin so that you can stimulate the blood flow around your face and at the same time soften your facial hair which helps in making the shave much more smooth.

 

After that apply Hot Towel to open the pores and then you can start shaving.

 

Applying Barber Gel

Applying Hot Towel to Open The Pores

When you are shaving follow the direction of your hair growth

When you shave you always want to follow the direction of your hair growth and don’t do the other way around because that would lead to cuts and ingrown.

 

When you are done with your shaving, don’t forget to cleanse your face with Cold Water or Cold Towel so that you can close the pores and if you have a cleanser you can apply it on your face so that you can remove the excess hair or product, then after that apply skin moisturizer so that it will lessen the dryness on your skin and don’t use any Cologne or Alcohol substance as it causes redness and irritation.

It is advisable to do your shaving once a week or if its urgent minimum of 3 days if you are the type of person who wants to look sharp at all the time.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 4 “GET THE BEST HAIRCUT WITH ANY BARBER”

 

In this episode our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about how to get the best haircut with any barber.

 

TIP # 1 – Forget about the guidelines of your previous barber.

When you are dealing with a new barber you need to know that the guidelines of the previous barber just don’t work because each barber is different, along with different mindset, techniques and understanding on the different haircut and style.

 

Forget about the guidelines of your previous barber

Forget about all the guidelines, numbers, etc. from your previous barber.

 

TIP # 2 – Understanding your Hair Texture and Head Structure.

The are different types of Hair Texture as well as Head Structure, before your next haircut make sure that you are well aware on which category you are in so that you can have an idea which type of haircut is best for you.

 

Different Hair Structure and Types Different Head Structure or Face Shapes

TIP # 3 – Share details with your barber.

The most important question that you should share with your barber is “When was the last time you cut your hair? With this information the barber can assess and visualize how your hair usually grows and know how short or long he can go based on your preference. As well as when you have some spots, scars or mole that you want to cover, this also helps with the finishing.

Your hair history is important.

 

TIP # 4 – Know the difference between the “Haircut” and the “Hairstyle”

When we talk about the “Haircut”, it is the process of how the barber cuts your hair by using the clipper or scissor, and it can be a fade, gradual haircut or longhair haircut. That makes it the foundation for the hairstyle. When we talk about the “Hairstyle”, it is the process of how you style your hair by using the right hair product, blow-dry and with proper hair condition. The Haircut is the foundation and The Hairstyle is the finishing.

 

Haircut by means of clipper

The Haircut is the Foundation, The Hairstyle is the finishing.

 

TIP # 5 – Trust the Barber

First of all, Barbers are Artist and they are the master of their own craft, so when you trust your barber you give them the opportunity to be more creative, more comfortable that can help them you give the best haircut by being calm and tell them your struggle and what type of haircut that you desire.

 

Trust the Barber

Always TRUST the Barber.
