Nathan is the manager of Kent of Inglewood and fills me in on how his epic moustache came about…
1. Can you tell a little bit about Kent of Inglewood?
Kent of Inglewood is a 100 year old shop that opened up a year ago. We believe that every man deserves a great axe, a stiff cocktail, and excellent facial hair. Our aim is to find the perfect grooming routine for each individual that walks through our door. Men should be proud of their appearance and they deserve to use good quality products. For us, craftsmanship comes first and we only sell products that we personally believe in.
2. What do you like most about working at Kent of Inglewood?
The people. Kent of Inglewood has an atmosphere of trust, and it makes people happy. When someone walks through the door and gets an immediate smile on their face, I know I have done my job. I also enjoy getting to handle such great products and work with my hands every day.
3. Love the moustache, why did you grow it?
Frankly, I’m not sure. One day I just decided to. Every man should take a crack at some iconic facial hair in their lifetime, and for me the moustache was the right choice. I love the classic British army look.
4. How long have you the moustache for?
A couple of years, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere. Its a part of the shop now, a part of me.
5. What’s your favourite product?
That’s a hard one. If I could pick three, I’d choose my Wetterlings axe, my Thies Issard straight razor, and my Lavender Moustache Wax from Captain Fawcett.
6. Any grooming tips you would like to share?
If you have facial hair, keep it clean and shaped. Find a barber you like, and build a relationship with them. Finally, build a strong routine that you can follow every day.
