The summer is officially upon us, dudes, and with all the fun in the sun comes a few serious matters as well. Namely, summer grooming. There's a lot of good times to be had from June through September word to Jamie xx and Thugger, but there are some common mistakes guys make too. A finely-curated #SummerLook is worthless if your hair, beard and overall grooming situation is sore on the eyes. You want to prepare, adapt and stunt appropriately.

We've already provided a breakdown from the experts on general grooming tips, so this time we thought we'd tighten the focus for our loyal readership and ask an expert to weigh in on African-American grooming specifically. We hopped on the phone with Blind Barber's Nigella M. for a professional breakdown on all things summer grooming, from mistakes to helpful tips. Peep her comments below as you prep your summer stuntage, and book an appointment with her after reading if you're so inclined.
