Described in the Financial Times as “possibly your ideal grooming editor” Lee Kynaston is one of the UK’s best-known and most experienced male grooming experts, having spent eight years on Men’s Health as Grooming Editor. An award-winning journalist and former magazine Editor with over 20 years experience, his work has appeared in numerous newspapers and magazines and as an in-demand consultant he has worked with some of Britain’s biggest skincare companies, websites and PR agencies. He has been writing about male grooming for over 12 years, though his very first article on the subject appeared in a student newspaper back in 1987.
In 2008 he began to focus on online work, joining the UK’s leading online grooming retailer, mankind.co.uk as their Grooming Editor in October and was rewarded with a prestigious P&G Beauty & Grooming Award in March 2009 for his work with the site.
He has contributed a monthly column on cliniqueformen.co.uk, provided numerous online features for MSN and, as well as his Grooming Guru blog, is Yell.com’s grooming expert, where he has two separate blogs, including one aimed specifically at Grooms preparing for their wedding day.
At the moment he is working as a consultant with a major fashion house on the development of their latest fragrance and has been working with an international hotel chain creating bespoke spa treatments for men.
An 80s obsessive, he also has a non-grooming related blog called Gentleman Takes Polaroids which can be found here.
