Hey Ladies! Meet Sian-Pierre, a New Yorker who's the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of SwaggerNewYork.com and a reporter for ACT.MTV.COM. I love what his mom taught him about cologne and think it's a rule everyone should live by. Read on to find out about his grooming habits and more. What’s in your medicine cabinet?
Not too much, really. I like to keep grooming pretty simple. I’ve got some Kiehl’s Facial Fuel, Evolution Man Wash and Buff, and a silly Justin Bieber singing toothbrush I received as a birthday gift recently. Yes, I use it.
What product can’t you live without and why?
Well, my hair’s kinda crazy curly, if you can’t tell. Once I was gifted this “Daily Hydrator” by Frederick Benjamin that keeps the frizz at bay without leaving my hair feeling crunchy. It’s kinda a daily must have for the curly set.
How would you describe your grooming habits?
I think most guys would think of ‘grooming habits’ as more of a ‘routine.’ Like, I wake up, wash my face, brush my teeth, put lotion and deodorant on. Then add the daily hydrator. In that order. Always.
Now be honest, how would a woman describe your grooming habits?
Quick and easy.
When prepping to go out on a date what are the three things you make sure you do?
Always make sure that if I do put on cologne, it isn’t overdone. My mom always told me that cologne should whisper and not shout. Then, remember to put on a little deodorant…and always floss.
If you could have one night with any celebrity who would it be and why? More importantly, what would you do?
One celebrity…that’s so difficult! Maybe Adele? I’ve seen her in concert, and during the breaks she was funnier and more honest than any celeb I’ve interviewed, or simply met outright. Plus she can sing, so duh, I’d ask for a personal concert.
What’s the first thing you notice about a woman?
Teeth. Beautiful, pearly white teeth. And recently, I love gaps! (Hello, Lindsey Wixom!)
When it comes to a woman’s beauty what’s your sweet spot?
Someone who is ambitious, quick, determined and has a personal sense of style. I think confidence is key to any woman’s sexiness, and can immediately tell how in touch a woman is with herself by how she dresses.
