Aside from replacing the champagne for coffee and orange juice, the lookmantastic Hair & Grooming Awards had all the glamour you’d expect from an beauty industry award ceremony hosted at The Club at The Ivy, including a celebrity host in the form of Caroline Flack.
But in addition to Caroline’s legs, dapper suits and swanky heels (not combined I might add), there were some prizes to be won. Showcasing some of the biggest names in the industry, the 2012 lookmantastic awards highlighted the cream of an outstanding grooming crop in an industry that’s going from strength to strength.
So without keeping you in suspense, FashionBeans can reveal who walked home with an award, and which products should be next on your ‘must try’ list – there’s even an exclusive 20% FashionBeans discount code!
As part of the celebrations, lookmantastic announced one special award, highlighting the men’s grooming brand they felt had done the most to keep guys looking tip top in 2012. Scooping the illustrious prize ahead of more established names like ClarinsMen, Lab Series and American Crew, men-u were chosen because of their commitment to producing an uncomplicated, yet comprehensive range of products with the principle that ‘performance matters’.
To celebrate their ‘Best In Grooming’ gong at the LM Awards, FashionBeans readers can now save 20% on all men-u products when you enter ‘MENUFASHB’ at the checkout.
With thousands of lookmantastic customer votes collected online, the 2012 lookmantastic Hair & Grooming Awards honoured those grooming products Joe Public can’t live without.
