Steve Smith

Australian cricket’s man of the moment – and new Gillette ambassador – shares some inside knowledge.

What’s in your grooming kit?
The new Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with the Flexball technology, of course and the Gillette shaving foam. You’d also find a couple of bottles of cologne, toothbrush and toothpaste, and some hair product.

Do you style your ‘do or get professional help?
I style it myself. I’ve changed it up a bit recently, and gone shorter on the back and sides. I think it’s working well for me.

Ever visited a male grooming salon?
Sometimes in places like India where we have a lot of down time we go to the spas there and get a facial… I’ve done a few of those.

What else do you indulge in -watches? Art? Cars? Cigars?
I’ve never really worn a watch, to be honest. Down the track a nice timepiece would be good to have. [Team-mate] Davey Warner walks around wearing pretty much all the brands available on his wrist. I’m pretty simple.

How about clothes?
I try to be as fashionable as possible. My wardrobe’s OK. I wore a little Louis Vuitton suit to the Allan Border medal.

What would you be doing if you hadn’t made it In cricket?
I’d want to be a tennis player. Roger Federer Is my favourite sportsman. I played a lot as a kid but stopped and concentrated on cricket when I was 16.
