Jon Hamm sported some serious facial hair at the 2013 Emmys, a very different look from his beloved Mad Men character Don Draper.
“I love not shaving,” he admitted. “This ends up happening…I was in England and was working on a project and had been away for four months and I finally got home and I was like, I think I’m done with shaving for a little while. That was about three days ago and then this happens.”
When his stylist Diana Schmidtke prepped him for the red carpet, she had her work cut out for her.
“Tonight I had to work around Jon’s beard, so well-groomed was the overall goal,” says Diana about his Emmys look. “What makes a man a stand out is the way he carries himself. He can be dressed to the nines and coiffed to perfection, but it’s the way he exudes confidence that makes the difference, and that’s what Jon does, so it’s really a pleasantly simple process for me.”
If your guy is thinking about growing facial hair, Diana offers her step-by-step instructions on how to keep him groomed.
Step 1: Apply Anthony Logistics Facial Moisturizer SPF 15($32) evenly over the face. “Even though the carpet is shaded, it’s still super important to protect the skin.”
Step 3: Apply Anthony Logistics Continuous Moisture Eye Cream ($33) gently under the eye area with your index finger. “All guys worry about crow’s feet, whether they admit or not,” Diana said. “I like Anthony’s because it contains cucumber extract plus Vitamin A, C and E which serve to reduce puffiness, redness and brighten the area.”
Step 3: Groom the beard by first cutting any stray hairs or fly-aways, so there’s an even surface. Then, shape the beard by creating a nice, clean line underneath with an electric razor.
Step 4: Tend to any redness, bumps or in-growns with Anthony Logistics In-Grown Hair Treatment ($28.50). “The salicylic acid in this product draws out the hair and reduces irritation.”
Step 6: Apply Anthony Logistics Instant Fix Oil Control ($28) to the t-zone or any shiny areas to absorb excess oil.
