Alright fellas, let’s talk. Beards are back, long hair is in, and whether you’re heading to work, out on a date, or traveling, there’s no reason you can’t keep your man mane in check. You don’t need to carry around a duffel bag full of products to keep yourself looking presentable. Just a pocket. Do you have a pocket? Great, you’re halfway there.
When it comes to taming your tresses, having a pocket-sized comb on hand is a great way to ensure that you’re always looking your best. Plus, combs were good enough for the Fonz, and no one is cooler than the Fonz.
A pocket comb helps to straighten a coif, tame a beard or mustache, and even get unruly eyebrows under control. Combs can be easily cleaned with soap and water to avoid build-up from hair products and they’re lightweight and ideal for daily use and travel.
Whether you want a comb that won’t break your heart if it gets lost or a high-quality option that won’t break in your pocket, we’ve got you and your hair covered.
