Best Hairdryer: Dyson

As with most things Dyson, it is sleek in design and functions like a piece of the future with discreet and responsive buttons. It comes with two magnetically attached nozzles for styling, and a diffuser that’s great for drying wavy hair gently and naturally.

$599, Dyson 

Best Shampoo For All Hair Types: Byrd

Get this if you love coconut. It’s a gentle, sulphate-free (you can’t imagine what suphate does to your hair) cleanser that regulates moisture using kelp, green tea and aloe vera extracts. The added sea salt provides texture and volume.

$33, Sultans of Shave 

Best Moustache Wax: Dear Barber

Keep your moustache in pristine order with regular cleansing, trimming and styling – similar to the hair on your head, moustache hair can become unruly if left untamed. A lightly scented formula like this will ensure those twizzled ends stay in place.

$19, The Panic Room

Best Beard Oil: Billy Jealousy

To maintain a beard is a labour of love and what separates the tamed from the untamed is a little beard oil and elbow grease. Billy Jealousy’s Devil’s Delight is rich is omega fatty acids for healthy hair growth. Daily application will keep your scruff looking soft and lush.

$38, available at What He Wants 

Best Shampoo For Thinning Hair: Kérastase

If you’ve got thinning hair, you are not alone. But don’t reach for a hat (this starves your hair follicles of oxygen) or adopt a man bun as it’ll make things worse. Go for a full shave or invest in the right hair products, like Kérastase Bain Densité Homme Daily Care.

$39, available at all Kérastase Salons 

Best Wet and Dry Shaver: Philips

Electric shavers used to be so noisy and inefficient, and the best they had to offer was that little bit of convenience. The game has changed. The Philips Series 9000 Wet and Dry is idiot-proof with the capacity to provide a close shave without razor burn. It cleans itself too. Sweet.

$599, Philips 

Best Hair Wax: Hanz de Fuko

Nicely styled hair comes with a little hair wax. If you like to look good while doing sports, try Claymation. We tested it while playing tennis and are happy to report that it held up really well. And it has none of that funky plastic smell.

$30, Sephora Ion 

Best Aftershave Lotion: Hermès 

We’ve come to the conclusion that shaving is less about the razor and more about the stuff you apply before and after it hits the skin. Add the Terre d’Hermès aftershave lotion to your routine. It protects, tones and softens the skin, with a great scent to boot.

$119, Hermès
