Even Swarthy Polo Players Have Their Grooming Tricks
Nacho Figueras' advice? Let your wife cut your hair, and keep things simple in the morning.
The annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic returns to Liberty State Park next week, where the Black Watch team and its star, Argentine polo player Nacho Figueras, will take center stage. When he isn’t riding horses and playing matches, Figueras, 39, lends his strapping good looks to Ralph Lauren as the face of the World of Polo fragrances, a scent he’s had his eye on since he was just a young wannabe athlete. His one piece of advice for those looking up to him now? Keep it simple.
