New Men’s Grooming Tech (Featuring Lasers, Finally)

Skarp Laser Razor

The Skarp Laser Razor first found fame on the Kickstarter website, where the Skarp founders raised $4 million from over 25,000 potential buyers. Then Kickstarter pulled the plug on the initial prototype. Following this little setback, Skarp relaunched the project and although it hasn’t reached the heights of the original total, this time it’s managed to raise over $440,000. Although the Skarp looks like a traditional razor, it’s actually powered by small lasers and promises to give the closest shave possible without irritating or damaging the skin. £196.79, indiegogo.com

Braun CoolTec CT2S-W

Most shavers allow heat to build up in the head, which can often lead to redness, burning and irritation. The Braun CoolTec shaver is one of the first of its kind to use “active cooling technology” with an aluminium cooling bar integrated into its design. The blades capture hair growing in different directions, it’s waterproof to a depth of 5m and it only needs a five-minute charge to get to work. £200, braun.com, buy on Amazon

Hairmax Ultima 12 Lasercomb

Few men welcome the idea of going bald with open arms, especially when the bald patch becomes trickier to disguise. But help is at hand: whether you’re facing hereditary hair loss, alopecia or stress-related balding, there is a way to save what you have left. The LaserComb uses something called laser phototherapy, which gently stimulates the hair follicles and promotes new growth. £338.50, hairmax.com, buy on Amazon

No! No! Hair Pro 5

You no longer need to subject yourself to excruciating treatments in uppity salons. This No! No! gadget removes coarse hair using pulsed thermicon technology, which claims to remove hair instantly and provide lasting results – painlessly. Up the heat, glide the gizmo over the offending area and watch the hairs retreat. £205.25, mynono.co.uk, buy on harrods.com

BaByliss Pro Italia Brava Dryer

A hair dryer with as much horsepower as a Ferrari? Well, almost. Not only does this Italia Brava look the part, its Ferrari-designed motor lasts up to ten times longer than most dryers’, providing a claimed 10,000 hours of use as it dries your hair at record speed. Short styles can be set in seconds with the “cool shot” feature, while its light weight allows easy portability and low noise means you can blow your hair out at ungodly hours. £120, babylisspro.co.uk, buy on Amazon
