The global male grooming market is set to double by 2020. Today, male grooming is more than just a question of beard or no beard – it’s a complex market with lots of potential for savvy hair & beauty professionals.

Guys want to know that something is worth investing in and it works. Once you capture a male client – he is an amiable customer who will trust your opinion and purchase readily.”
Mark Smith – Spa & Grooming writer & blogger, The Spa Man.
