Cyrill Ibrahim: A Guide To Mindful Male Grooming

The pianist and Positive Influencer feels at his best when suited and booted – we speak to Cyrill Ibrahim about his routines and go-to products for gentlemen. 

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DO IN YOUR MORNING ROUTINE?

Coffee! There is no other proper start to a good day. After that there is the shaving ritual that wakes me up and gives me time to myself before the day actually starts.

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO OUTFIT TO MAKE YOU FEEL AT YOUR BEST?

I love suits, I always have. Possibly because of my core profession, Concert pianist. There is nothing more satisfying than wearing a properly fitting suit. For footwear I love leather brogues from Archibald London, that feel timeless but I know have been exceptionally well made for modern dressing. 

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO PRODUCT THAT YOU’VE BEEN REACHING FOR LATELY?

I am loving the range by SCRUBD. Their products are truly wonderful. Not only in feel but also in packaging.

DO YOU CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE SEASONALLY?

I like habits and find it difficult to change them. However I notice that in the summer I like the stubble look a lot more than I do in the winter. I  therefore use my latest trimmer by Braun. 

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO PRODUCT THAT YOU’VE BEEN REACHING FOR LATELY?

I am loving the range by SCRUBD. Their products are truly wonderful. Not only in feel but also in packaging.

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO FRAGRANCE AT THE MOMENT?

At the moment I am using Jean Paul Gaultier on daily basis and Penhaligon’s Marylebone Wood for slightly more special occasions.

HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN FACIAL HAIR, DO YOU USE ANY PRODUCTS IN PARTICULAR?

I was invited to the launch of the new range by Hawkins and Brimble. They have a lovely shaving cream that feels very smooth. For the occasional stubble look I use the new Braun series 3 trimmer for a nice designer stubble.

 HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR HAIRDRESSER?

I am usually loyal to a barber but due to my influencing work I have had the fortune of trying lots of different barbers. I find that each one has their individual style depending on the area where they are based and their experience with different sorts of clients.
