Check out Brad and Ricki's interview below which includes some of their recommended products from some of our favourite brands...

"RICKI HALL
There's nothing like a bearded-and-tatted dude to shake up a world of pretty boys. But, don't be fooled by Hall's rugged looks — he's the most regimented of this bunch. 

"There's no excuse or room to be sloppy with your skin regimen," he says. "I'm very strict with mine.

Hall's full routine consists of Kiehl's exfoliating scrub, the Clarity Toner, a line-reducing concentrate, a moisturizer, and an SPF 15. "It's quite a lot, but I find it very therapeutic," he explains.

As for that mighty beard: "I use Captain Fawcett Beard Oil and Mustache Wax, as well as Scoop Deluxe Beard Palm," he says. "I'm currently in the stages of doing a collection for them at Christmastime."

But, Hall's most important piece of grooming advice is also the most unorthodox. "Below the Belt recently gave me some sports lubricant, which is a godsend," he says. "I have very small, erect nipples all the time. So, they chafe." See? Nobody's perfect.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Clarity-Activating Toner, $42, available at Kiehl's; Captain Fawcett Moustache Wax, $16, available at West Coast Shaving; Captain Fawcett Beard Oil, $56, available at West Coast Shaving."

 

"BRAD KROENIG
As one of Karl Lagerfeld's handpicked leading men for Chanel, Kroenig has one of the most enviable heads of hair in the industry — maleor female. As it turns out, that is thanks to a special cocktail of stylers: "I mix American Crew Fiber with Remino Wax. Combined, it gives both hold and texture," he says. "I also learned how to massage my head to help circulate blood flow and stimulate hair growth. I do this daily, and I think it's helped a lot."

As for that golden beard, "I only do a clean shave a few times a year to prep for a facial or a shoot. But, I use Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream followed by Dior Homme After Shave Gel. Otherwise, I use my Norelco Beard Trimmer," he says.

In fact, he's pretty handy with that gadget. "When I first started modeling, a makeup artist taught me how to properly contour my beard to define my facial features. It made such a difference," he explains.

American Crew Fiber, $16.99, available at Target; Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream, $26, available at Lab Series; Dior Dior Homme After Shave Gel, $52, available at Sephora."
