This one’s for the boys, boys, boys

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / May 07 2021

We love men who aren’t afraid to throw away the toxic masculinity and admit they're just as into beauty as their female counterparts. 

So when we found out that LOOKFANTASTIC had gathered the Google search data of Australian men to see just exactly what it is they’re looking for when it comes to all things beauty, grooming, hair care and even sexual health, we have to admit our ears did prick up a bit.

Keen to know what’s going on in the heads of the men that walk among us everyday? Honestly, same… 

With male beauty searches from the last year hitting the millions, let’s take a gander at the 10 beauty brands Australian men are feening for.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
