No matter how many times our fathers embarrassed us with their dance moves or cheesy jokes while growing up, Father’s Day is about celebrating them and the other special father-like figures and men in our lives.
There are many different types of dads out there and all are special in their own way. Read below for some of the different types and choose which one matches your parenting style and your own father’s style
The “Cool” Dad
While all dads may self-proclaim themselves as the “cool dad,” not all can actually hold this title. The Cool Dad is up-to-date on the latest style trends and hottest music — you won’t find any oldies tracks playing in his car. While his kids may not be embarrassed to introduce him to their friends, they may turn red when he starts using texting terminology that they haven’t even heard of yet. But at the end of the day, they’re still proud to call him their dad and friend.
Blend of Choice — Black Light: This smooth luxury cologne scent is a fan-favorite and the perfect pick for every “Cool” Dad with trendy taste. Use it for any occasion — whether it’s a day in the office or for a night on the town — and feel smooth and sophisticated.
When your car has a flat tire, who do you call? When the sink springs a leak, who has the right tools for the job? When you’re assembling Ikea furniture, who puts it together without even using the instructions? It’s the Handyman Dad, AKA Mr. Fix-It. Sometimes his handy skills are thanks to duct tape and super glue, but other times his impressive fix-it abilities seem to be magic, which is why our Voodoo cologne blend is the perfect option for him.
Blend of Choice — Voodoo: While the tools in your tool box may not be able to work magic on your beard, our Voodoo beard blend certainly can. This bergamot, fresh lime, jasmine, sweet orange, and eucalyptus cologne scent is just what you need. You’re always there to help others, you deserve to treat yourself.
The Outdoors-y Dad
Whether it’s fishing, biking, camping, or hiking — the Outdoors-y Dad has truly become one with nature. Either that, or he has just grown to appreciate any uninterrupted time he gets to share with his kids partaking in outdoor activities they both enjoy. He may have been the one that taught you how to ride a bike without training wheels, cast a fishing line, or build a campfire. You don’t need a compass or map when your Outdoors-y Dad is your adventure partner.
Blend of Choice — Woodland: Our Woodland Cedar and Patchouli blend will help any Outdoors-y Dad reminisce on some of his favorite memories spent in the great outdoors. Our products are the perfect size to throw in any hiking bag and will ensure you feel, and smell, fresh during all of your outdoor adventures.
The Grill Master
Not many can master the skills it takes to successfully head the grill, but the few that can rightfully earn the title of the Grill Master. At every summer picnic or beachside BBQ, the burger, steak, or chicken wings that you enjoy and are cooked to perfection are thanks to the Grill Master. Rarely do you see them leave their work station, maybe just to refill their beverage of choice, but they don’t mind — the smell of charcoal and spatula in hand is their happy place.
Blend of Choice — Campfire: After being in charge of the grill all day, the Grill Master’s beard may have picked up scents of the food he prepared. Cover it up with our Campfire scent. Wear the ashy aroma proudly until night falls and it’s time to master the campfire and dish out hotdogs and s'mores for everyone gathered around. Life is good.
The New Dad
Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! The newly appointed role that you just stepped into will be the most important of your life, no pressure! Nothing is greater than holding your child for the first time, celebrating their small and big milestones, and sharing the same experiences with them that you had with your own father — it makes all of those sleepless nights worth it!
Blend of Choice — Dark Roast: If you do have time to take care of your beard in between feedings, changings, and
sleeping, doting lovingly on your new child, the Dark Roast coffee blend is the scent we recommend for you. While your diet may primarily consist of coffee for the first few weeks, sometimes you need additional help staying awake. The powerful aroma of rich, freshly brewed coffee will keep you going throughout the day.
Soccer fields, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, and football endzones have all become a second home to the Coach Dads! They’re the ones running alongside the team down the field shouting words of encouragement. They’re also the ones treating the team to a pizza or ice cream party, win or lose. Through the victories and the losses, the Coach Dads are there for support and to cheer you on or cheer you up. As you aged, you realized that the post-game talks you received perhaps taught you more about life than the actual sport.
Blend of Choice — Major League: It may seem like an obvious choice, but the MVP’s of dads deserve to rank in the major leagues, which is why the Major League Fresh Beards blend is the perfect one for them. The Cuban Cigar and Cloves scent is a home-run in any dad’s playbook.
The Frugal Dad
Have you ever had to drive to your family vacation because airfare was too expensive or to settle for a cheese pizza to avoid paying extra for toppings? If so, your father probably falls under the Frugal Dad category or you’re the one that holds this title. Nothing is wrong with pinching pennies and saving up for something special and we have the beard care products just for you.
Blend of Choice — Classic: While all of our beard butters, balms, and oils are priced affordably, our classic blend unscented beard butter is priced $2.00 less than the scented blends, but still includes the same great benefits.
There are many different types of dads out there and perhaps you, or your own father, is a combination of a few that we listed above.
