Samuel L. Jackson  is the only man in Hollywood that hasn’t aged in two decades. His beautiful skin is glowing from good skincare and a good close-up shave. Achieving the clean look is simple. Using a cartridge razor and Super Close Shave Formula , begin by shaving in the direction of hair growth (not always straight back). Finish with a fortifying misting spray such as Shave Tonic to prevent breakouts, in-grown hairs, and noticeable redness. It’s designed to cool razor burns while balancing the skin’s pH. Seal the deal with some Baxter Lip Balm and massage the face with Super Shape Recharge Cream. Bald brilliance.

Bradley Cooper looking crisp, clean and transformed since his character’s long and shaggy ‘do in A Star Is Born. His tamed scruff and movie star looks has always be stellar. Congratulations to both Bradley and Lady Gaga for taking home the Oscar for Best Original Song. The trick with achieving a well-groomed look is not to change the authentic nature of your looks but polishing, and refining them. Get the look by using by warming up a finger scoop of Clay Pomade in the palms and after style with the fingers. Embrace your natural texture and scrunch your tresses to create that ‘beach-hair’ volume. For skin prep use  the Oil-Free Moisturizer, Under Eye Complex and Beard Oil.

When you think of the premium Oscars grooming, picture was Henry Golding. Looking more dapper than ever Goulding exudes men’s old-Hollywood at its freshest. Create the perfect sleek and glossy comb-over using Hard Water Pomade which holds in place, it’s durable and has a great shine to it. Pop out the Clay Effect Style Spray to hold the shape in place with no fly-away’s. This is the ultimate Oscars red carpet hairdo. And Golding wears it so effortlessly.

Heartthrob Chris Evans assisted Oscar winner Regina King up the stairs to accept her award arrived with an expertly shaped, trimmed and conditioned beard. Groomer Sussy Campos styled the Captain America  star with a slicked side part with volume perfectly combed over. His grooming is especially impressive. It’s almost too perfect. Get the look by using Hard Cream Pomade warmed up in your palms then finger-comb through the hair. Create a side part and top it off by spritzing the Clay Effect Style Spray to hold the shape. Protect and hydrate the skin using the spf Oil-Free Moisturizer. Finish it up by rubbing some beard oil unto the beard/neck area for a tasteful scent.

Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek shined as bright as ever as he became the first egyptian to win Best Actor at the Academy Awards. We couldn’t be more excited for him. Suave and confident looking (that he was) Rami’s skin was a standout on the carpet. There’s a difference between looking shiny and sweaty aka having a hotspot in camera terms; verses having a flawless glow ; like you see here. To achieve skin radiance like Rami, you can use Baxter’s Super Shape Skin Recharge and lip balm.

Overall we must applaud all of the guys that stepped out looking their best while wearing the ultimate accessory of confidence as their cape. To look  like a star its all about finding the right tools that will help you achieve the look of your desire. Luckily you have loyal friends at BOC to help you reach for the stars with all of the grooming essentials you need.
