There was a time when it was considered odd for “common” men to spend a lot of time and energy on their grooming. It was something that was only reserved for men of the aristocratic class. Fortunately, times – and grooming trends – have changed. It’s now much more acceptable for men to concentrate on their grooming. In fact, men are encouraged to spend time on their looks; however, with tons of products available and so much advice offered in magazines, websites and social media pages, deciding where to begin and what to focus on can be a bit overwhelming.
What’s the trick for men to look their best? – It isn’t spending a small fortune and endless hours on primping; it’s deciding what’s important to you and creating a routine that will allow you to focus on what’s important to you, won’t take a ton of time and is easy to follow. But, what should you include in your style regime? Here are 5 style tips that will have you looking your best.
- Keep Your Hair in Check
Your hair is your crowning glory, so it’s important to keep it in tip-top condition.
To keep your hair looking well groomed, find a barber that you really like and make sure you visit him regularly. On average, men should have their hair cut every four weeks; however, this depends on how fast your hair grows. Waiting until your hair becomes overgrown to get it cut will totally make you look unkempt.
- Work on Your Hair at Home
Keeping your hair well trimmed is important, but so is styling it on a daily basis. Find a style that you dig and grab some products that will help you achieve it. Before you go to work, on a date, or anything else, spend some time working on your hair to style it just right.
Unless you live in the woods and hunt on a regular basis (and even then!), you’re going to want to make manscaping an important part of your style routine. This includes keeping your facial hair in check with shaving and trimming, but it also includes keeping hair in other areas tamed. Chest and back hair – and even hair “down there” should be trimmed and contained. Manscaping does a world of good.
- Concentrate on Your Wardrobe
You don’t have to look like you just came off the pages of a style magazine, but you also shouldn’t look like you picked your clothes up from a pile on the floor. Give your clothing some attention. It should be neat and clean, not a hot wrinkly mess.
- See a Cosmetic Dentist
Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you. If your teeth are discolored, misshapen or you’re missing any, you’re going to want to make an appointment with a cosmetic dentist.
Cosmetic dentists offer a range of treatments that will improve your smile – from tooth whitening to dental implants – that will make you look your best.
