With over 40 articles published on Grooming Adepts and experience as a dermatologist, it is fair to say Robert Brown is qualified to be giving advice. You can find his advice, tips, and product recommendations any day of the week on GroomingAdepts.com. I recently sat down with him to find out more about who he is and what he does.
“I have been a dermatologist for several years now, but I have always liked writing. I enjoy writing about things I know and I feel like I know beards pretty well.” Just by looking at him, you could tell this was true. Robert has an impressive, well-kept beard. It is no surprise that he is one of the sites leading contributor when it comes to beards. He has written on everything beards, from balms and waxes, to combs and razors.
“I love sharing the knowledge I have gained over the years. I am pretty much always talking about my beard in real life, so being able to write about it is great and just comes so effortlessly.” Naturally, I asked him if his beard was the most important thing to him. “Almost. My wife and kids are definitely more important. But then it’s my beard and above everything.”
I asked him what piece of advice he would give to men trying to grow a beard, he said, “People underestimate the power of a good diet. You can buy all the products you want, but if you are not getting the right nutrients in your diet, it just won’t happen. Once you have your beard grown in and you are ready to start shaping it and really taking care of it is when you want to start with the balms.” I could tell he really did like talking about his beard. You could see it in his face and hear it in the inflections of his voice. “Writing for Grooming Adepts is such a dream come true, it combines my favorite things and gives me an outlet so that I’m not always talking my wife’s ear off about this stuff.”
“Speaking of Grooming Adepts, what do you hope happens with it? What direction would you like to see it go?”
“Well, when I started there was significantly less content, and definitely fewer followers. So being able to see it grow to where it is now has been awesome and I would love to see it keep growing. I’d love to keep writing for as long as I can. I mean, as long as people are still reading it, I will still be writing it, and probably even after they stop reading it.” Hid dedication was evident and on full display. I can’t say I have met someone who seems as dedicated to what they do as Robert does, in a long time.
“My favorite thing about Grooming Adepts is how wide of an audience we have; how many different kinds of people can find our information useful. Sure, men will probably benefit the most, or find it the most useful, but there is plenty of stuff for women as well. We write about stuff that everyone can use, not exclusively men. I have written about women’s razors, and tips for women looking to buy a razor for their man. So, I love that there is something for everyone.”
While the main target audience of Grooming Adepts is men, one look through their site will tell you there is also stuff for women. It is also a great resource for anyone just wanting to learn more about something, such as how to get curls out of your beard, or how to prevent your beard hair from falling out.
Grooming Adepts is a very unique website, with a very talented team of writers who love what they do. This is exemplified with Robert, he is such a talented writer with a knack for helping and giving advice. I enjoyed being able to sit down and get to know him better. If you ever have any grooming questions, Grooming Adepts is always a great place to check out first. You can find plenty of product recommendations and guidance.
