It's only right dudes have easy access to the grooming armament they need to shore up their game. Hairstyling, facial and skin care, after all, are no longer just concerns of the fairer sex.

The problem is, outside what high-end barbershop-slash-salons, boutiques, and over-the-counter drugstores have to offer, guys actively on the lookout for affordable but competitive alternatives are slowed down by the dearth of options out there. This despite the steady rise of niche ventures that have been mushrooming online and in malls in recent years.

However skewed toward catering to women's needs, here are some brands and suppliers you can find online and at the mall that will help to fortify for grooming arsenal.
