England goalie Jack Butland’s favourite barber, Jacks of London, was recently nominated for seven awards (mixture of consumer and b2b) in just one week, which clearly shows it’s ahead of the competition. Jack B, who, despite his injury has sustained his high grooming standard over the past 12 months, is the face of Jacks.

As the Original barbers – 22 years in business – and still the coolest barber brand there is with some fab clients and multiple editorial mentions worldwide, they certainly know how to make men look and feel great.

The dapper chaps at Jacks of London barbers are in seventh Heaven after hitting the shortlist in seven awards over the space of just one week. Acknowledged as one of the UK’s top male grooming brands, the barber group is used to receiving accolades for its outstanding barbering performance, but even so, the crew were elated to have so many nods come in at once.

‘It’s fantastic to get seven nominations in such a short time. We are well chuffed,’ said Jacks Art Crew leader Steven Gasparetto. ‘We constantly push ourselves to be the best we can, to ensure the crew is always working at its best, and that our clients get the best cut and care they can at our store. To be singled out as one of a handful of other barbers across the UK worthy of an award shows we are doing it right.’

The Jacks crew got through to American Crew All Star Challenge, a competition run by the cool US-based brand to search out the hottest male looks for 2017. They also have two teams in the regional finals of the L’OrĂ©al Colour Trophy; they are in the running for three separate prizes in the Cut awards, run by Hair magazine, the UK’s top consumer grooming title; and they are finalists in Shortlist magazine’s Grooming Awards for Best New Men’s Styling product.

‘Being good enough to enter awards takes determination, vision and discipline,’ added Steven. ‘It’s not just about our egos, it’s the ultimate way to keep our skills sharp, our crew ahead of the competition and our clients 100% satisfied.’

Formed in 1995, Jacks of London is the original modern barber, famed for its faultless and contemporary take on the full range of classic men’s styling techniques.

Over those two decades it has built a solid reputation among fashion-savvy guys everywhere, specialising in giving clients the full male grooming experience, with complimentary bar, live sports and big, comfy, man-friendly leather sofas in all its barber stores. The experience extends to Jacks’ exclusive The True Gent range of shampoos, conditioners and styling products, all with the fresh, overtly masculine tang of citrus and pomegranate.

This year Jacks is set to cement its position as a leading creative force in the male grooming world barbering with the opening of a training academy that will educate barbers from across the world in its unique brand of hair cutting and styling techniques.

Have you noticed it is getting light earlier every morning? Fantastic. Now is the time to shake off Winter and kick start your fitness routine in earnest. Whatever exercise routine you have, try to think about adopting a skincare routine to compliment it.

Here’s a few tips to keep yourself and your skin look great whatever the season.


To protect yourself you need to find a great moisturiser for your face. You would think that for the best protection you should use the thickest product available. Not true. It’s not the viscosity of the product that makes it work, it is the level of active ingredients. The most important thing is to find a moisturiser that really penetrates and hydrates the skin. It should be light, quickly absorbed and, as you are a guy, matifying.


The next area you should think about protecting is the delicate skin around your eyes. It is the first place to show signs of fatigue and ageing and there are loads of products out there specifically formulated for your under eye bags and dark circles. A product that protects, refreshes and repairs, as well as moisturises is a good place to start and the best ones contain cucumber extract, hyaluronic acid and peptides.


When our lips become dry, particularly in cold weather, we tend to repetitively lick them to restore the moisture. Even though licking your lips may, for a few seconds, make them feel better, it actually makes lips dry out even more as the moisture evaporates from them. This can easily lead to painful, cracked, sore lips. You should try your best to not lick your lips when they begin to feel dry, instead you should use a quality lip balm or lip serum. There are some very clever formulations currently available that don’t use petrochemicals, so don’t have the awful lip balm taste and as an added bonus they are taste and shine free too. So no one will know you are wearing them.


Extreme temperatures and winds can also affect hair by drying it out. So in the winter months we recommend conditioning it 3 – 4 times a week instead of the usual once in warmer months. Use with a high quality conditioner alongside a quality shampoo and if they both feature caffeine all the better.


Sun Protection
And last and by no means least use a sunscreen. A sunscreen? Winter sun, combined with snow glare can still damage your skin. And mositurisers with added SPF usually offer such low protection that they may lure the wearer into a false sense of security when it comes to sun protection. So we recommend using a dedicated sun screen on top of your daily mosituriser or serum. You should apply a high factor broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and your hands and reapply frequently if you stay outside a long time, are working outside or are playing sport.

If you follow these few easy tips you should cruise through Winter into Spring looking great as you do it.

In partnership with Sky Sports and the 5-a-side specialists, Powerleague the best Precision moments will feature on Gillette Soccer Saturday.
Gillette, the world’s leading male grooming brand, has kicked off a nationwide competition giving budding 5-a-side teams the chance to feature on adverts during Sky Sports’ flagship show, Gillette Soccer Saturday.

A selection of special Gillette precision pitches across the UK’s Powerleague centres have been fitted with red button technology, allowing players to retrospectively capture a great precision goal, save or moment of skill that could make it onto the silver screen alongside the likes of Jeff Stelling and Charlie Nicholas.

To enter, players need to simply hit the red button on the side of pitches at either Enfield, Gateshead, Shrewsbury, Sunbury, Trafford or Wigan. Their clip will appear on www.gilletteprecisionplay.co.uk where they can find their moment of brilliance and submit it for consideration.

Matt Thomas, Gillette and Venus UK&I Brand Manager, said: “Precision and innovation are at the heart of everything we do at Gillette. This campaign brings both of these together through a truly unique partnership with Powerleague and Gillette Soccer Saturday, enabling young guys to feature their 5-a-side precision moments on national TV.

“There’s also nothing quite like scoring a sublime goal, so naturally we want everyone who enters to share their clips with their friends”

The best clips, chosen each month by Gillette, will appear before and after each ad break on Gillette Soccer Saturday as well as during Sky Sports News HQ.

Be sure to follow @GilletteUK on Twitter for the latest updates and highlights from the competition, and for more information on the Gillette Precision Play competition, visit: www.gilletteprecisionplay.co.uk
