Men’s Products & Shaving Tips w/ Boardroom Salon for Men!

Tomorrow is Father’s Day and if you are anything like us you probably waited until the last minute to get something for your old man. The typical/traditional Father’s Day gift is usually a tie or something dressy, but there is so much more to a man that just what he wears. How about those things called hair and skin that cover most of his body?

Kontrol Magazine’s Entertainment & Lifestyle Editor and Atlanta blogger, Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, got a few amazing tips from the staff and stylists of Boardroom Salon at Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia.

First let’s talk ambiance! Walking into Boardroom Salon is breathtaking and you instantly get the feeling you have stepped into an upper echelon of grooming and pampering. The salon is very old school, gentlemanly, and most of classy! Those hardwood floors and paneling, black leather seats, and a comfy lounge is nothing short of timeless.

Boardroom invited Mikey and his teenage son, Omari for a Father and Son haircut (by stylists TK Bell and Felisha Lashun, respectively) and to discuss the salon’s products and some gifts.  Check out their video with shop manager and stylist, Felisha Lashun, below!

The tips provided by Felisha  were very informative, especially when it comes to warning us about buying grooming products from the grocery store. We will definitely be checking the expiration on products moving forward. All of the products mentioned by Felisha are awesome Father’s Day gifts and more importantly should be added to your daily facial regimen. If you happen to be a man of color these products mentioned in the video will be beneficial in helping you treat and avoid ingrown hairs, an issue that routinely plagues races of men with coarse and curly hair.

Remember Father’s Day is far more than gift giving though. Dads are protectors and providers and if you are lucky enough to have yours then be sure he has an amazing day! Guys be sure you head over to Boardroom Salon for Men at Avalon for all of your hair and skin needs!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
