Though probably not realized at the time they were given, these haircuts created treasured father-son and grandfather-grandson bonding experiences for our family. It turns out we aren't alone in grooming being an important bonding experience for the males in a family. Research by Wahl, a leading manufacturer of professional and home grooming products, indicates that hair cuts and shaving play a big part in male family bonding:
- 50 percent of guys learn to groom from their father or a father-like figure.
- According to 90 percent of men, the first grooming experience is truly a memorable bonding experience shared between father and son.
- The tradition of teaching is not going away any time soon as 8 in 10 men say they would teach, have taught or are planning to teach their son how to groom.
UPDATE: Congrats to our giveaway winners Victor from Jacksonville NC & Bik from Rowley Massachusetts
