TOLEDO GQ 2021 – “The Skin Care Guy” Redefines Style

Jarrod Del Vecchio, 31
Clinical Aesthetician

What does style mean to you?
Style gives an opportunity for expression both in appearance and in behavior. Style can make us unique or similar. 

What’s the most important tip to looking good?
Confidence is key. If you love what you wear and how you choose to express yourself, embrace is unapologetically. 

What do you think is your trademark “look?”
Those who know me will always find me in my black work scrubs and bright blue shoes. 

What’s a terrible men’s fashion choice?
Excessively unkempt facial hair. Scruffy facial hair can look great but keep it clean and controlled. 

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
About an hour. Just enough time to make sure I’m showered, hair is styled and all my skincare is applied (especially spf!)… and coffee. Let’s just say that coffee is part of my style. 

How important is looking good in your line of work?
Clinical aesthetics is quite literally all about the skin’s appearance. So I feel that I need to “practice what I preach” and maintain optimal skin health to best represent what it is I do. 

Name a place in Toledo where you always try to look your best.
One of my favorite restaurants, Benchmark, in Perrysburg! 

How has your attitude toward style changed over time?
As I’ve gotten older, I have found the importance of dressing in what looks good TO you and feels good ON you is more important than conforming to what those around us think we should wear. 

How does skin care relate to personal style, in your opinion?
Proper skincare for healthy complexion is not always done in vanity. It’s also showing that someone cares for their overall health. Skin health is important just like dental health, eye health, etc.. Being healthy is the best form of style in my opinion. 

What is one thing simple anyone can do every day for better skin?
Broad Spectrum SPF 30-50+ EVERY single day and reapplied in prolonged exposure. 

What’s one surprising hobby you enjoy?
I thoroughly enjoy my time in theatrical productions around Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Singing is a passion of mine and I’m thrilled to make my debut as a solo vocalist with the Toledo Symphony later this year.
