Wherever I travel in the world I always like to check out local grooming emporiums to see what products they stock, discover what’s selling like hotcakes and get the lowdown on local trends. So whilst in Provincetown last week I popped into Kiss and Makeup and had a chat with the very lovely (and very tall!) Gerard and Evette who work there.
A delightful little shop selling skincare, haircare and cosmetics for men and women it has some great male grooming ranges on offer including Billy Jealousy, Ursa Major, Malin+Goetz, Kyoku and personal favourites like Lab Series, Menaji and even Brit brand Taylor of Old Bond Street.
Given that Provincetown was packed with hirsute men for its annual Bear Week, however, the products flying off the shelves were – as you might expect – the beard oils. I’ve never actually had my beard massaged before but Gerard gave me a thorough introduction into how to use the Woodsman Beard Oil they stock and I must say, it was one of the best impromptu ‘treatments’ I’ve ever had (if you’ve never had a conditioning beard massage I thoroughly recommend it).
But anyway, Kiss and Makeup is such a fantastic little shop I said I’d give them a mention when I got back home so if you’re ever in P’Town do check them out.
