How Could Kobe Bryant's Grooming Possibly Cost $833 a Pop? We Investigate

It’s well known that any guy you seen on the red carpet has been primped to perfection just as much as the ladies they’re with (sometimes more so, since there’s more work to be done!). But since half the guys we know get $15 cuts from barbershops-slash-potential mob fronts, we had a hard time wrapping our heads around the fact that Kobe Bryant’s groomer may have rung up an $833 tab for the basketball superstar’s recent Nike commercial (according to TMZ).

How could that be? Is he getting six-hour scalp massages on his bald head? Extremely precise eyebrow trimming? Skin buffing with raw diamonds? We talked to a couple male grooming experts to get the run down on where that money is going.

“I am not surprised at all. Guys could spend so much more than that!” says Joanna Pensinger, who counts Leonardo DiCaprio and Drake among her clients and says in general, grooming services can range from $500 for a day of television to $4,000 for an A-list celebrity. But it’s much more than just a quick trim with scissors and a little moisturizer: she plays masseuse, stylist, facialist and more, and often the guys will take product home with them, which adds to the bill (sometimes to the tune of $1,200 for a shaving set).

Michael Fassbender needed a winning look for Sunday’s Golden Globes. After all, his movie 12 Years a Slave took home Best Motion Picture: Drama, and he got to have some truly bromantic moments on the red carpet (see here). And while Fassbender is certainly handsome enough without any help, even the most handsome guys in Hollywood get an extra hand from celebrity stylists. In his case, groomer Anna Bernabe made him look impeccable.

The first part of Fassbender’s prep work started the night before, when Bernabe told him to get some rest. “I always advise men to get a good night’s sleep and to moisturize, especially in the evening,” she said, saying she sent him home with RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream to start working a good glow for the morning. And because Fassbender has grown a beard for his role in Macbeth, she also reminded him not to skip that part. “Men with facial hair often tend to forget to moisturize underneath their beards. This is so important because those areas become very dry, especially when the beard is trimmed shorter,” she said — and his was, because Bernabe wanted a clean red carpet look.
