Father’s Day, The AP Way
Father’s Day is an interesting time of the year for marketing. Tons of places advertising the hottest gadgets and gizmos fill our email inboxes. Mass media presumes that all a dad wants to do is have a beer and grill something in a kitschy apron. We are nudged in the direction of this niche genre to purchase all things cheeky, tacky or gag-gift esque. There is a stigma out there that dads are completely incapable of managing their style and grooming routines without a patronizing eye. There’s even an Instagram account dedicated to the hilarities of some of dad’s fashion choices.
But, realistically, some of us have benefitted greatly from our dads! Many do inspire their children to have an interest in the fashion and beauty industry. Many of the key fashion points we love today are inspired by dad’s advice. Several women over at StyleSeat even commented on how their dads inspired their current skincare routines and interest. So, for all the skincare obsessed fashion dads out there, this one’s for you!
Our top 5 most helpful Instagram accounts to keep you “fresh, dressed like a million bucks” this father’s day!
Our very own @erikdabarber hookin’ up this little stunner at @baxterfinley. It’s incredible to see our team work with kids from an early age and as they grow. Good grooming is a ritual passed down from Father to Son and Barber to Guest. We’re honored to be a part of that journey in life. Keep it up all you #BaxterDads! #baxterofcalifornia #barbershop #barber
This one is loaded with grooming inspo and that SoCal vibe.
“Every great man, every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavor, has known the magic that lies in these words: every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.” – W. Clement Stone —– This quote holds true for all of us, both ladies and gentlemen. As I often write, there are no shortcuts in life worth taking, and it is how we journey through the toughest of life’s terrains that will determine our successes and character. By human nature we will all have days of doubt, challenges, and adversities in some aspect of our lives (careers, relationships, friendships, family, business dealings, etc.) but it is in those moments that we will build and strengthen our faith, our character and our moral fiber!! If you are in a place of discouragement and disappointment today, know that your season of harvest is close at hand and that through prayer, perseverance and the power of positive thinking, you will break through this wall of adversity to realize the greater benefits that are waiting for you on the other side!! Stay positive, stay blessed!! ❤️🙏🏽🌴☀️🌺❤️ #mjsolofa #mjsolofamensgrooming #groomingmentobebettermen #spreadlove #spreadaloha #mensgrooming #mensfashion #menswear #gentleman #theartofbeingagentleman #faithandfamily #fatherhood #fellowship #motivationalspeaker #inspirationalbarber #shaveparlor #oldschoolbarber #traditionalbarber #tonsorialartist #dadlife #singledad #godisgood #walkinfaith #aloha #alohaspirit #countyourblessings #bethankful #teamsolofa #samoan #aspiretoinspire
