Men’s Grooming Day

Every third Friday in August is celebrated as National Men’s Grooming Day. This holiday is dedicated to the belief that men should keep up with their grooming game. Sure, there are times when being scruffy-looking might be attractive, but this is not the day.

On this day, men are encouraged to shower, shave, and make sure that they keep smelly at bay. Now, don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying that men are usually stinky and unkempt.

All we’re saying is that we know what it’s like to be so busy we might miss some basic grooming. Hey, we’re human, too. We’re just saying that skipping grooming on this particular holiday is unacceptable.

The History of National Men’s Grooming Day

This company was founded in 1994 by stylist David Raccuglia and has become one of the premier professional grooming brands in the world.
