Fashion Expert: Matt Rutter
About: Matt Rutter is the owner of Otter Grooming Co, maker of premium grooming products using natural, organic, and sometimes vegan ingredients.
Fashion comes in waves, and the next circuit of fashion inspiration may see a throwback to the eighties. While the beard is here to stay, we’re going to see a shift in shaving styles. Specifically, we’re talking about an altogether clean-shaven look, perhaps leaving just a little bit of stubble, away from the hipster looking beard. Think day after pulling an all-nighter with just a little bit of stubble.
This means that 2018/2019 will see an increased demand for quality grooming products like straight razors, shaving creams, and aftershaves, but also welcome in more classic barber shops where it was more about the experience than a chore.
