After the razor was invented, the beard became, for a while, not very acceptable. That was until recently when it made a comeback, proving that the beard is a proud tradition to be worn on the chins and cheeks of the manliest of men. Throughout history, many distinguished men wore beards, such as Karl Marx, Abraham Lincoln and Chuck Norris, to name a few.
To keep this tradition going, the Johannesburg Beard Company, an online shop, stocks the best, homegrown (hair)care range for your whiskers. From beard oils and balms to moustache waxes and combs, they have the stuff to keep your mane bringing the party to the yard.
If you're like us, though, you're pretty sceptical about these so-called beard 'beauty products' popping up all over the place. With that said, we should mention that the Johannesburg Beard Company's range of products actually works. Any man worth his salt can tell you that the worst part about growing a beard is getting through the itch alive. Thanks to Joburg Beard Company's beard oils, growing pains are a thing of the past.
Some of the beard oils available are the Lumberjack with a woody scent, Spicy Citrus with an oriental lemon smell, and the Mountain Mint, which is obvious. The beard balm comes in the Lumberjack and Mountain Mint scents and will keep even the most stubborn of whiskers happy and healthy.
Do yourself a favour and check them out. If you're a facial hair aficionado like we are, you're in for a treat. Besides, you deserve to celebrate your pride and joy.

Some men could find any excuse for grooming and others could hardly care less what happens to their ID area, but you don't want to find yourself becoming what I would call the "Beardo".
Beardo: "A person with a beard that is never given love and has lost hope"
Hines and Harley is all about that! Before we get carried away about what I'm talking about. An Ubersexual is a term used to describe a gentleman, a human person who knows how to take care of himself without feeling like he is doing something terrible. This is the guy who cleans up well (and by that, I don't mean a tall model in a suit with a white shirt stereotype).
Hines and Harley is one of those places that look so modern on the outside, but make you remember things from way back when once you enter. It's a bowl of nostalgia filled with shaving cream and a good pair of hands to take care of you, bro!
This men's grooming lounge is definitely an experience because they offer quality service from the minute you arrive until you leave. They really live off of making people fall in love with themselves again. This is all thanks to Jared.
Jared Hines is the man who made all this happen. He started out in the spa industry and decided that he wants to get into Mampering (pampering for men) and this lounge became his dream come true.
Le Man Package
Hines and Harley has some amazing packages that you can check out. The "Full House" has to be our favourite. This includes a shave, haircut, facial, pedicure and a manicure - this is a full treatment.
The experience comes with every package, so you can be rest assured that you'll probably become a regular there.
They use good quality products that will ensure you are not a victim of Bacne. They boast their amazing house brand products, as well as top of the range products like Naked Cherry - a proudly South African product, TheraVine™ MEN range, etc.
As soon as you walk into the lounge, you will notice that the team gives off a very old school (quirky gentleman and lady type of style) vibe from the way that they dress, as well as the warm environment and the jubilant aura they spread.
Moral of the story is, whether you have a beard or not - grooming works either way, be it shaving or maintaining. Don't let the word "metrosexual" scare you off, it merely means you love taking care of yourself.
And ladies, we can stop the debate about Mr Scruff, just get him a little gift 😉 to get rid of that beardo.
If you're looking for a rock 'n roll shave or trim then head to Melville and pop in to Freedom Hair. Not only will the blokes have you looking fresh but you might just score some good coffee out of the deal. On top of that, Freedom Hair also boasts one of the best barbers in the world. Boyden, the owner of the barber shop was invited to Rotterdam to cut hair for an NGO alongside 11 of the best hairdressers in the world.
Feeling a bit overgrown; as if the hedges might need some tending? Head to Rivonia Boulevard and sort that beard out at Crew Men's Grooming. Enjoy a complimentary beer or whiskey or coffee as you get your mane trimmed. Crew Men's Grooming has also added a tattoo parlour to its premises so you can get a new chop to fit those lamb chops of yours.
Old School quality with modern grooming is what Floyd's all about. Take a trip to Fourways and get yourself cut up, son. We're not suggesting you remove those chin hairs if you don't want to but get it styled at least. The ladies love it. From hipster fades to trimming the dead ends off your mop, Floyd's will sort you out.
It's not often that a barber shop makes national news but the Crow's Nest pulled it off. The shop got the country talking after they were appointed to shave South Africa's sexiest beard, Jo Engelbrecht to create awareness for testicular cancer. These guys own the skills to make your face look even sexier.
Quintessentially man, one can enjoy a traditional shave using original cut-throat razor methods coupled with a haircut minus the electric version of the old-style scissors. All of this while watching the game on one of the numerous plasma screens, enjoying a fine cedar wood-infused cigar or browsing the exceptional selection of single malts on sale. Parkhurst’s hot new barber shop is one of Joburg’s oldest traditional Italian barbers.
