Ok guys, it’s a new year and we’ve got a resolution for you that’s not only easy to keep – but necessary. Being unkempt is uncool. A bad head of hair, beard, can make the difference between a successful interview or date, and going home single or unemployed. Remember guys, style may start with your clothing – but it ends with your grooming. Here’s the top grooming tips you must to implement everyday before you leave the house.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Much
Most men haven’t gotten the memo on this one already, but DO NOT wash your hair everyday. You’ll end up stripping it of its necessary oils that keep it looking healthy and not brittle and dry. Also, hair with its natural oils still intact is much easier to shape and style.
Get A Non-Haircut Haircut
Most men get a hair cut once a month. Some go even longer. But special events, like interviews, dates, and parties don’t always fall on the same day as your haircut. We know how you guys like to be regimented, but when it comes to your hair and an important event, make sure to – at the very least – go for a trim. You’ll look cleaner, neater, and more presentable.
Don’t Just Drink Caffeine
Far too many guys rely on their trusted cup of Joe to wake-up in the morning. But as you age, that’s not enough. You need to moisturize. It doesn’t just wake up your skin, but makes your beard (if you’re rocking one), look just as fresh as you are.
Watch Your Beard-To-Hair Ratio
We all know beards are in. But what many don’t know is that you can’t just grow it and expect it to look like the bearded gents you aspire to be. A beard actually requires a lot of maintenance, which includes trimming the sides and neck to make sure it flatters your face – not fattens it.
Texture Thinning Hair
The biggest fear of all men is not the death of their life, but rather, the death of their hair. For some of you, you’re already starting to thin. So in these remaining years where you’ll be holding onto every strand, make sure to add volume by using pastes and texturing powders to give your hair that still full look.
Freshen Your Blades
So you’re not a bearder, you’re a shaver. Fine, it’s still a good look. Just make sure you don’t have a beard of itchy rashy bumpy skin either. To avoid that ugly and uncomfortable razor burn, make sure to freshen your razors by keeping them sharp.
A Wet Towel For Hat Head
Hats are cool. Hat head, isn’t. If you’ve got to wear a hat, but need to take it off – make sure to dip a towel in hot water, wring it out, and wrap it around your head first. It’ll quickly refresh your follicles and get rid of that hat head.
Watch The Expiration Date
Thought only your milk and eggs expire. Nope. Your creams and pastes have a shelf life too. Make sure to use them up before the expiration date, otherwise they’ll either won’t work or, make your hair look worse.
Groom Your Bum
While face beards may be in – butt beards will never be. You may like all that hair down there because it keeps you warm in the winter, it’s guaranteed girl repellent. Women like to run your fingers through the hair on your head, not your bum.
