Although the clothing we wear plays a significant role in our style, our beauty and grooming routines are just as essential to our overall looks. We’ve partnered with Spectrum Studio to explore the latest trends, innovations, and concepts behind the art of being well groomed.

Some of you reading this might be thinking, What does hair and makeup have to do with style? While, yes, style does typically bring to the forefront of our minds our wardrobe, we cannot neglect the role our beauty and grooming routines play into our overall style, too. Just like putting together an outfit, how we decide to apply our makeup or style our hair can be just as individualized as what we choose to wear. At some capacity, we often put together looks that are reflective of who we are; we use style as a means for conveying our personality. But our individualized styles can be depicted not just through clothing alone.
The average American spends a good amount of time primping, grooming, and simply getting ready — and rightfully so. Our hair, for example, is often the most noticeable part of our appearance and represented as an extension of ourselves. Thoughtfully styled hair and makeup greatly complement our natural features and bring more depth to our overall look. Many would say a good hair day often does wonders for our confidence.
So, the next time you’re planning a specific look, do not neglect the role grooming plays in your overall concept. This Style feature explores the latest trends, innovations, and concepts in beauty and grooming, and provides looks that are manageable to replicate at home (although we highly recommend consulting with our friends over at Spectrum Studio in order to perfect them) in order to obtain that optimal, well-groomed look.
