Grooming Tips for the Groom
Prepping for the Wedding
Your wedding day is an everlasting memory that you’ll look back on for years. Whether in thought or in photographs, you’ll want to look your absolute best. As the groom, you have to tend to many aspects of your appearance, just like the bride does. Start paying attention to the hair, beard, and skin as soon as the ring is on her finger.
Grooms: if you have any concerns about how you’ll look on your wedding day, start your wedding grooming routine months before the ceremony while keeping these tips in mind.
Begin making updates to your appearance months in advance
It’s totally understandable for you to want to freshen up your hair and skin before the wedding, but changes are not going to be made overnight. As soon as you are engaged, you should take action on elements of your look that need attention.
If you’re prone to frequent acne breakouts, talk to a doctor and discuss an acne treatment that’s right for you. If you’re experiencing hair loss or thinning, you’ll need to start taking hair loss medication in the early stages of your engagement to get the best results.
Regardless of the part of your look you hope to improve, establish these things as part of your grooming routine right away. Most importantly, keep them consistent until your wedding day.
Start trying styles ahead of time
From the hair on your head to your mustache or a beard, test out the different hair and beard styles well in advance of the wedding. If you try a shorter style a couple of weeks prior to the ceremony and decide that you don’t love the look, it will likely be too late to go for a longer style.
Find a barber you’re comfortable with and discuss what styles are attainable for your hair type and texture. Get started as early as possible so you and your barber have perfected the trimming and styling of your hair and beard and you won’t have any concerns leading up to the big day.
Be sure to get your last trim about a week before the ceremony so the cut looks the most natural.
Prepping for the wedding can be one of the busiest time periods in a bride or groom’s life. It is often so busy that you can forget to take care of yourself. Some of the simplest acts, like drinking water, can become a low priority. Your body can feel the effects, as well as your skin and hair.
Drinking water not only benefits your skin and hair, but it can support your immune system as well. Including more water in your daily intake will prevent breakouts and sickness while supporting your overall health.
Make sure that you monitor your water consumption daily. If you’re getting enough water throughout the wedding planning phase, you should have clear skin and healthy hair on your wedding day.
Use familiar grooming tools
You might be looking at several different wedding looks that require a different set of grooming tools or a barber who knows how to accomplish a particular style. However, don’t stray from what you know once you’ve become savvy with a certain shaver or hairstylist.
It’s important that you’re acquainted with the grooming products you plan to use for your wedding day look. That means that you should never switch up your products or your barber within a few months prior to the final cut.
If you want to try new popular grooming products or a different style, do so early on so that you don’t have any grooming mishaps a week before the wedding.
The most important piece of advice for any groom is to use what will make you feel comfortable and confident in your appearance on the big day. Contact us if you’re looking for a wedding photographer or for any other wedding-related inquiries from the bride or groom. We’d love to hear from you!
