Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

Yes, they may look a little creepy. However, when it comes down to it, mannequins are important!

Purespadirect.com has a large selection of cosmetology hair mannequins for beauty school, salon education, and state board examinations. Salons purchase our manikins for learning new cutting, coloring, straightening and processing techniques.

You will find all types of manikin heads from human hair, synthetic hair, straight hair, ethnic hair, facial hair, beards, and even eyebrow hair. We also have accessories such as holding clamps, tripods, wig dryers, and foam heads!

I am always seeing a huge selection of females, but with male grooming on the rise, they are just as important. Check out some of our top sellers to help perfect your technique!

Shave in Style with The Peanut

Grooming is one of the many activities that men try to avoid on a daily basis, as it’s time consuming and it certainly be difficult to master the art of shaving. I’m sure you see male clients regularly at your salon who are in need of a quick shave, and they might even ask you tips on products and shaving tools to keep up their grooming at home. If you’re in need of a new grooming product for men, I highly recommend The Peanut by Wahl. Introduced in 2007, its funky peanut design and small size gives makes it a favorite among men! It’s also very small, lightweight and extremely portable making it easy to use on your clients. I find the peanut shaped design to be clever (and cute!), and Wahl is most certainly a reputable brand for grooming products. We have different variations to choose from:


The Wahl Peanut is the original clipper of this style that first came out. It weighs less than 4 oz. and is less than 4″ long! It has the power and performance of a full-size clipper with the versatility of a heavy-duty trimmer, but is tinier than most. It also comes with four snap-on combs!








The Peanut also has a cordless version you can retail to your busier clients who are always on the go! Great for travelling, this portable battery-operated clipper has 45 minutes of cutting time per battery.




The Peanut also comes in black for your more stylish male clients who want a different look than the original! View all of our different Peanut Clippers here!

Movember Is Here!

And in it’s peak at that! November is drawing to a close, but does your Spa celebrate the Movember movement? Not familiar? Movember, or No-Shave November, is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches and beards during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers. I’m sure you see many of your male clients sporting new facial hair that they haven’t had all year to support this wonderful cause. It might be a great time to incorporate specials for your clients during this month!

Need some ideas? How about retail items to support their efforts such as Beard Oil, Conditioner, and even Moustace Wax? We carry Clubman products for men that would be amazing to have on your retail counter during this month. Check out some popular products below:



Clubman Beard Oil is super hydrating and provides a light shine. It also has Macadamia Seed Oil that conditions the beard and skin underneath, as well as prevents irritation due to new hair growth.



They even make beard conditioner! This conditioner by Clubman works as a moisturizer and conditioner for your clients who need extra hydration.








Do you have male clients who are living true to the Movember name, and only growing out a moustache? Make sure their ‘staches are perfectly groomed with our Clubman Moustache Wax!
