Celebrity Hairstylist Aalim Hakim breaks down the essentials for men’s grooming at home.

Coronavirus has put much of the world under self-isolation lockdowns. In these circumstances, people have picked up their kitchen scissors and are trying their skills in personal grooming. From giving haircuts to trimming out a new beard style, most men have no choice than to take the matter into their own hands - or put their trust in those at home with them. While we still recommend you to hang in there and leave the complicated techniques to the professionals, a little trim or shave is inevitable as the lockdown extends into a full month and beyond. So men, let’s make sure you have the essential tools and a few expert tips to see you through the challenge. Celebrity stylist Aalim Hakim shares some tips on how to get grooming at home done right.

It can be extremely irritating for some men to do without their regular haircut. Experimenting with at-home DIY haircuts is the new norm – even celebrities like Virat Kohli and Ronaldo are doing it. But be careful when you cut your own hair; it’s a simple process but requires precision.

Get your tools ready: A pair of scissors (hair cutting shears / sharp kitchen scissors), comb, mirror (a large one is preferable or make sure you are leaning closer to the bathroom mirror), and towel

Dampen your hair prior to cutting, as it makes it easier to cut. Then, run a comb through it to keep it in line

Get the right look which suits your face

If you have a round face, keep the sides sharp and leave a bit of length on top, where you should try and show your forehead, so the face looks more elongated and sharper. Similarly, keep the back short and sharp as well.
