Budge over ladies, male grooming has become big business here in the UK, especially online.

Guys are spending more than ever on high tech razors, moisturisers, beard oils and fancy hair styling pomades. One man who has witnessed the grooming boom first hand is award-winning barber Enver Yeshilbulut, who says he has seen an increasing number of men visit his barbershop for traditional wet shaves, beard trims and facials.

Enver, the owner of Kings Barbers Male Grooming in Kent, recently beat off razor sharp competition from hundreds of other talented barbers to win Britain's Best Shave 2019, a prestigious event run in partnership between The Bluebeards Revenge male grooming brand and the British Barbers' Association.

With this in mind, who better to ask than Britain’s very best barber for his pick of the UK’s leading male grooming websites? Here are Enver’s top five men’s grooming sites for 2019.

Fashion Beans

Launched in 2008, the Fashion Beans website has grown rapidly over the last few years and is widely considered as the best digital publication for men’s grooming content, especially for on-trend millennials. The site has male grooming trends, tips, tricks and the very best product recommendations. It helps me to understand the latest trends and stay ahead of the game.

The Bluebeards Revenge

The Bluebeards Revenge is my go-to shaving brand for the barbershop, as the products are simply fantastic and allow me to execute the best possible wet shaves. The brand has also developed an impressive range hair styling products and beard grooming oils and promises guys the “ultimate shaving and grooming experience”. That’s a bold claim but one I think they certainly deliver on.

The Shaving Shack

The Shaving Shack offers a no-nonsense range of top quality traditional wet shaving products delivered direct to your door. I get my double edge safety razor blades from this online retailer and they never disappoint. The website offers free UK delivery on all orders over £39.99, a free gift selection on all orders over £9.99 and a loyalty rewards scheme that’s fantastic in the long term. Add in the fact that they offer the best selection of cut-throat razors on the market and this really is one of the best male grooming retailers on the world wide web.

Ape to Gentleman

Ape to Gentleman is another online fashion and style portal that I’m a big fan of. Aimed at the more discerning gentleman, it offers some really thought provoking articles and is regarded by many as the men’s style bible of the internet. Sign up for their monthly email and get all the latest style and grooming tips straight into your inbox. The magazine is run by industry heavyweight Chris Beastall and features the highly respected male grooming journalist, Lee Kynaston, who has previously worked with the likes of Men’s Health, GQ and Modern Barber.

The Modern Man

If you are looking for ultra-modern, premium male grooming products then this should be your first port of call. They are stockists of some of the best brands such as Baxter of California, Muhle, Edwin Jagger, Rehab London, Wahl and The Bluebeards Revenge. Worldwide shipping is available and you will even receive a free sample with every order you place.
