These Four Readers Got a Style Makeover and You Won’t Believe The Results

Men’s Health  AMBUSH powered by Remington

MH AMBUSH is a classic style makeover, but with a twist… we surprised readers on the spot to give them a whole new look from head to toe.

After a call-out on social media inviting readers to sign up for our style upgrade, we got our Fashion and Grooming Editor, Azeez Jacobs to select four lucky readers who he’d ambush with a bespoke style solution and a full grooming experience with Remington at a couple of local barber shops.

Once we identified our readers, Azeez went about putting together a wardrobe for each guy and planned a hair style and beard trimming to give them the full experience.

With everything lined up, we loaded the MH AMBUSH van, picked up the camera crew and made our way across town to surprise our readers and rush them off to the barber shops to start the makeovers.

Luckily, every one of our candidates was up for it and accepted the challenge. Azeez and his style team got down to work: prepping each guy for their planned style overhaul and taking them through the cutting, trimming, brushing and sculpting with the shiny new Remington kits.
Trimmed, shaved, dressed and ready, each makeover revealed not only a new look, but a new man.
