It’s been a long week of men’s fashion week and questionable weather in NYC. Through the survival of hot, humid and rainy days, we’ve wrapped up this week’s best:
GROOMING: Byredo’s New Hair Combs
Take your grooming game to a whole new level with Byredo‘s new hair combs which are available in five distinct styles. Setting it apart from other grooming tools, the new collection is inspired by iconic female leaders in African History: Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut, the legendary Queen of Sheba, Queen Mother Idia of Benin, the warrior Queen Aminatu of the Zazzau kingdom and the powerful Queen Nzinga of Angol. Not only are the combs modeled after powerful women, but each model is also made of renewable, biodegradable material that is naturally packed with keratin, which reduces frizziness. The stylish and environmentally friendly combs are available ($110-$145) at BYREDO Wooster St. and online.
