Look as Handsome as Archer

Look as Handsome as the World’s Greatest Spy With Help From Baxter of California 

Whether fighting rebels in far-flung destinations, scheming to sabotage his co-workers or making time with the ladies, Sterling Archer, the namesake protagonist of the acclaimed FX animated series Archer, has mastered the skill of looking his best in the stickiest of situations.

Now every man can achieve “Sterling” good looks. The “Get The Look: Archer” bundle includes the essentials for every international man of mystery: Hydro Salve Lip Balm, Hard Water Pomade, and Super Close Shave Formula, the perfect recipe to match Sterling Archer and to keep every guy at the top of their grooming game. Why these items?

  • Bold Hard Water Pomade: Gives Archer the slick shiny look he loves along with a soft never crunchy hold to his hair.
  • Super Close Shave Formula: Gives his face a smoother feel than a baby’s bottom.
  • Hydro Salve™ Lip Balm: Keeps his lips soft and kissable.

 

To keep up with this well-groomed investigator’s next moves, tune in to Archer for the Season 7 premiere on March 31st on FX at 10pm e/p.

5 Styling Tips from Baxter Finley barber Frank

Baxter Finley Barber & Shop barber Frank Sariles spoke to Birchbox about his favorite tips & tricks when it comes to styling your hair, picking products and visiting your barber.

1. Start styling hair soon after showering – the earlier you start styling your hair, the easier it will be, and the more control you’ll have. At the very least brush your hair into place—even if it’s just with your hands—so that it dries in the right style.
2. It’s best to style your hair on the drier end as opposed to dripping wet. Drier hair helps prevent diluting the styling product.
3. Make the most of natural curls and waves – products with shine like Hard Water Pomade control them and add to their finishes.
4. Think about hair thickness when picking a styling product – a cream is good for thick hair because it won’t weight it down, a clay is good for fine hair because it won’t separate it.
5. When going in for a cut, don’t wear a hat or use too much product that day. Hair is best when cut in its natural state, and hat hair or gunk can impair your barber’s ability to cut. 

Frank’s favorite products: Clay Pomade, Daily Protein Shampoo & Daily Moisturizing Conditioner.

Q: What are your favorite products in the Baxter of California line?

A: I love the Oil Free Moisturizer. It melts into skin and doesn’t leave a heavy feel or shine. I am also a big fan of the Soft Water Pomade. I love the shine it gives while also a flexible hold. For the perfect scruff I love using the Beard Comb. I am able to get a nice close-to-the-skin trim.

Q: What grooming tricks do you always use when getting your clients ready for parties or the red carpet?

A: The most important thing for me while getting any of my clients ready for the carpet or any event is to keep them looking masculine. I never want anyone to look at my work and think ‘great makeup’ or that they even have a groomer. It’s not about me. It’s about keeping the integrity of a man. I want them to look like the best version of themselves. Like a true gentleman.

Q: Damn, we love that. For the recent Oscars and events around it, how did you choose Nick Jonas’ look or Michael Keaton’s?

A: Usually an event like the Oscars is just about elevating the everyday look to movie star status. This year my men had a very true-to-themselves look. Nothing too fussy. Again, the best version of themselves.

Q: Any other red carpet tips to share?

A: When getting a man ready for the red carpet I take in the time of day for lighting as well as the time of year for temperature. Weather plays a huge part in a face as well as hair. It’s about knowing your client and what is going to work as well as last the day or night.

Q: Why do you love using Baxter of California?

A: I love Baxter of California because there are few lines geared toward men.  I love clean packaging and a masculine look in my set up and I am able to achieve that with Baxter.
