GUYS - FED UP WITH YOUR LOOK? THEN FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS!
8 KEY ACTIVITIES FOR THE WELL GROOMED MAN
Get a Regular Haircut by a Good Stylist
Start by rebooking your next appointment while you’re in the salon, every 4 weeks, and stick to it. Too many men wait for the ‘forlorn tugging of your locks’ stage before doing anything about it. Basically, if you've noticed your hair needs a cut, then other people have too. The trick is to be proactive, not reactive – and having a regular place you trust will cut down on the 'oh my God what if he/she messes this up' anxiety dramatically.
Know Your hair products!
Hair products for men have got a bit more confusing since the Brylcreem your Grandad swore by, so make sure you’re clued up on what each product is for. Thicker hair and messy styles can handle waxes and pomades, but if your hair's thinner, then lighter products and sprays will give your barnet some staying power. Ask your stylist if you're a bit in the dark, but the right product can make all the difference.
What’s your signature scent
Aftershave isn't supposed to be loud or obvious. You don't want people to stop in their tracks and notice (if they do, you've worn too much). Rather, it should become a subtle part of your overall presence. Rather than owning 8-10 average quality bottles you pick from each morning at random, find one or two classic scents you really like and invest in them. Typically woody, spicy or herby scents suit the winter months, while lighter, citrusy scents work best in spring and summer. Try an Eau de Toilette for a less nippy feel after a shave.
Great Teeth are a Must!
Two things every woman notices: your shoes, and your smile. When it comes to the latter, there is no longer any excuse for ignoring advances in technology. Electric toothbrushes are designed to do most the work for you, plus, they’re better for your health: according to a study by Sheffield University, rotating brushes reduce 11% more plaque than manual toothbrushes, and can also significantly reduce gum problems to, and while you're at it, use a mouthwash after you brush first thing in the morning your breath is so important too.
Scrub your face!
Guys - we scrub our ladies exfoliate. Face scrubs are just textured face washes designed to get the dead skin off your face (particularly the nose, the most exposed part of your face) rice beads are very common in scrubs. Use one on a Monday morning to scrub the weekend off your face, and every other day of the week go for a plain face wash that's less abrasive. You'll be looking better than you feel in no time.
Learn how to shave properly
Manage your facial fuzz
Unless you're planning to move out into the wilderness to find yourself, facial hair of any length needs to be tamed and maintained if you want to be taken seriously. You don’t have to spend much on a beard trimmer, so pick one up and get into a weekly habit of tidying up. Don't, however, go too far, more David Gandy, less Frankie Boyle.
