Shave in Style with The Peanut

Grooming is one of the many activities that men try to avoid on a daily basis, as it's time consuming and it certainly be difficult to master the art of shaving. I'm sure you see male clients regularly at your salon who are in need of a quick shave, and they might even ask you tips on products and shaving tools to keep up their grooming at home. If you're in need of a new grooming product for men, I highly recommend The Peanut by Wahl. Introduced in 2007, its funky peanut design and small size gives makes it a favorite among men! It's also very small, lightweight and extremely portable making it easy to use on your clients. I find the peanut shaped design to be clever (and cute!), and Wahl is most certainly a reputable brand for grooming products. We have different variations to choose from:



The Wahl Peanut is the original clipper of this style that first came out. It weighs less than 4 oz. and is less than 4" long! It has the power and performance of a full-size clipper with the versatility of a heavy-duty trimmer, but is tinier than most. It also comes with four snap-on combs!










The Peanut also has a cordless version you can retail to your busier clients who are always on the go! Great for travelling, this portable battery-operated clipper has 45 minutes of cutting time per battery.






The Peanut also comes in black for your more stylish male clients who want a different look than the original! View all of our different Peanut Clippers here!

The Demise of the Beard, and What it Means for Spas

Maybe it's the warmer months, or maybe beards were just another short-lived fad.
Either way - sorry guys! - according to a recent article I read, the man scruff trend is apparently on its way out, which means men's grooming is on the rise! Apparently there is a rise in what's called the "creative class," and young men are trading in their hoodies, flannels, and scruff for a cleaner, more sophisticated look... no complaints on my end!

Does your business cater to this new wave of the creative class, though? Maybe it's time to implement men's grooming services to your salon or spa menu! Not sure where to begin?! Don't worry. Pure Spa Direct is always on top of the latest trends.. we have all of the men's grooming essentials to get you started!

If you haven't heard of June Jacobs yet, you're definitely missing out! This high-end, luxury skin care line prides itself in merging cutting edge science with nature. Free of parabans and preservatives, this line is formulated with carefully selected botanical and plant extracts. They have a men's line as well! Our June Jacob's Men's Travel Kit has everything to get you started for your male clientele. It comes with a cleanser, an exfoliating scrub, a lotion, and shaving cream - also a great kit to retail!


Nothing like using some good old Beard Destroyer Cream by Grooming Lounge to prep you'r clients face for shaving! It's an ultra-lubricating formula that enables a smooth shave every time. Pair it with their Beard Master Shave Oil for a clean, smooth shave! If your clients want continual beard grooming maintenance, the Greatest Shave Ever Kit makes an excellent retail product.






Own a vintage style barber shop and in need of a new men's grooming line? Clubman is the perfect solution! Their Aftershave Talc is the perfect product and most certainly reminiscent of those old school shaves your clients might be looking for. All of their products come in an attractive packaging and smell amazing as well!





What's a bunch of products worth without the proper tools?! We have a variety of razors to choose from, and of course you can't forget the shaving cream brushes! See below for my top picks.

Who is June Jacobs you ask? Beats me, but she sure does make some good products. I know this because the last few weeks they've been moving faster than greased lightning! And to top it all off, they have some great shaving products for men. So buy some for yourself (live a little... you deserve it!(, buy some for your friends (the holidays are coming up), and of course, use them as both professional and retail products in your spa... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great June Jacobs selection HERE!

Stripless Facial Wax is Here!

A new item to Pure Spa this week was Cirepil Visage Facial Wax. We sell a lot of wax here, but I've never seen a facial wax like this. I'm not even sure I know how that works, but you guys must because it was really movin' this week. I wonder if I could use this instead of shaving?... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy!

Close Shave...

I can't be sure, but I think most men are like me -- they hate to shave. The thought of dragging the blade across my face just brings up dread. It takes time, it hurts. Yep, I hate it. I've tried all sorts of products for sensitive skin, with aloe, with topical pain ingredients. No luck. Hate them. Hate, hate, hate. Did I say hate? Redness, blotches, and patches of unshaven hair on your face and neck.

The choices: 1) continue with the hate relationship, 2) forget it and look like Grizzly Adams, or 3) find something better. My razor already has 4 blades and an extra single blade for tricky areas. The handle vibrates like a billion times a minute from the battery inside. So I think I've maxed out on the hardware.

Finally I found the Grooming Lounge line of products. First I'll say that the phrase "line of products" kinda scares me... I like simple. I spoke to a Grooming Lounge expert and figured out what I needed was just 2 items from the line. 2 I can deal with:

Grooming Lounge Beard Shave Oil
Grooming Lounge Beard Destroyer

Both were "manly" enough names for me, so I was ready to try them. All I can say is wow. Even the little ritual for using them somehow adds to the experience. Shower, then re-wet your face with warm water. Shake 3-4 drops of Shave Oil in to your hand, rub all over your face. Squeeze out like a quarter-sized amount Beard Destroyer Shave Cream in your hand, massage it in to your stubble. Put a few drops of water on fingers and rub into cream/beard to activate.

Wow. How wow? Here is what the combo does:
The Oil:
It Lifts Whiskers (with Meadowfoam Oil)
It Lubricates (with Peppermint Oil)
It Soothes (with Avocado Oil)
The Cream:
It Cushions the Razor (with Sandalwood Oil)
It Enhances Razor Glide (with Rosemary Oil)
It Fights Ingrowns (with Eucalyptus)

Grooming Lounge products are THE IDEAL retail item you can offer men. Pure Spa Direct's got em! Click here and see:
