When we first got started creating Fulton & Roark, Allen and I often talked about Billy Reid, and the following he had built. We appreciated his high-minded Southern style, and we deeply admired his relentless commitment to authenticity.
That's why it was such an honor when the team at Billy Reid reached out about working together and asked about carrying F&R in their stores.View full article →
This month, we’re introducing our new line of Inspired Deodorants. Why “inspired?”
First and foremost, fine fragrance. At Fulton & Roark, if it doesn't smell fantastic, we're not interested. So, when we decided to create deodorants, we envisioned a product that did far more than prevent unpleasant odors. We wanted to offer high performance deodorant that smelled as distinguished as our fragrance line. Like in our solid fragrances, we use only the finest essential oils, extracts, and fragrance ingredients to create truly inspired scents that you will be proud to wear, no matter the occasion.View full article →
One of the great paradoxes of men’s grooming lies in taking care of your beard. If you do a great job grooming it, no one will notice your work. That’s why we created Formula 5 Beard Oil to make all of your beard grooming efforts look, well…effortless.View full article →
We get it. If ever there was a perfect time to try out a beard, it was during the nationwide shutdown this year. But as states begin to reopen and many of us begin planning on our return to the office, it may be time for the beard to go. Don't get me wrong. If you like your new look, by all means, keep it!
But, if your best beard attempt didn't yield the result you were hoping for, there's no shame in letting it go. Just make sure you do it the right way. Follow these easy steps to transition back into the land of the clean-shaven as smoothly as possible.View full article →
Most guys who are stuck at home feel like they have one of three choices—either embrace the shaggy look for as long as their barbershop is closed, grab some clippers and go with a full buzz cut, or roll the dice and risk disaster by cutting their hair solo.
We talked to our good friends at Emerson Joseph, one of the finest men's salons in the country and asked them if they could offer some advice to guys who were just trying to keep their hair looking good enough to keep their cameras on during video conference calls. Luckily, they had an even better solution. They are offering virtual consultations through Zoom calls to walk you and your significant other/quarantine companion through cutting your hair.View full article →
Soap is made up of interesting little molecules that have a hydrophilic head, which means that it bonds with water, and a hydrophobic tail, which means it avoids water and instead looks for oils or lipids to bond with. When soap and water interact, the soap molecules arrange themselves with their hydrophobic tails tucked together while the water-loving heads of the molecules face outward, looking to bond with water. Meanwhile, many viruses and bacteria (including COVID-19, the HIV virus and hepatitis B) have lipid membranes, or outer walls.
When you wash your hands with soap and water, you’re spreading those tiny little soap molecules all over your hands. As you’re washing, the hydrophobic ends of the molecules wedge themselves into the membranes of viruses and bacteria, causing them to rupture and break apart.View full article →
Showering may be a personal activity, but that doesn’t mean that it falls into the category of complete relativity. There is a right way to shower, and the good news is that it’s not difficult. Keep the speakers and phones out of the bathroom, and give yourself a few minutes alone with your thoughts, focusing on the steps in the process. Shower properly for just a few days and you’ll find your repetitive routine can become a rewarding ritual.View full article →
