Grooming the Groom.. a few tips


While most of the attention of the day will be lavished upon your lovely bride, that doesn’t give you a pass to neglect your own manly maintenance. A little manscaping is necessary for looking your best on the one day you’ll remember most. Here, we offer four easy suggestions for getting spiffy, and for showing guests just why she said “yes” in the first place!

A Shave and a Haircut . . .

It’s time to remove all shags, eye-covering bangs and other hairy disguises you sport day in and out.  As a “Hair for My Wedding” grooming rule of thumb, you should meet with the us at least one week before any big event (i.e. your wedding) to give your hair time to adjust to the new cut.

A favorite of Hair for My Wedding is what we call the Valentino… Rudolf Valentino. Nicely faded slick back hair with an extreme part will do the job. Valentino is the example of the perfect model for a groom. No facial hair, and sleek slicked parted hair. Gorgeous to look at. Notice how Valentino doesn’t look dated.

Facial hair is a no no and as it goes, Hair for My Wedding believes in keeping classic. Facial hair is usually time stamped and trendy. Here today, gone tomorrow. Don’t let facial hair ruin your pictures when you look back at them in years to come.

Pearly Whites for Your White Wedding

Another go-to place for “Hair for My Wedding” grooming is the dentist’s office. Schedule an appointment for a cleaning to get your choppers in picture-perfect condition. If you notice a little discoloration, fret not. There are tons of teeth whitening options on the market that are quick, easy and painless. If you don’t have time for multiple dental visits (or the $400 to spend on the procedure), ask your dentist to recommend a few over the counter products to use in the comfort of your own home.

Get a Facial

To keep skin smooth and blemish free, facials are the way to go. Estheticians work their magic extracting blackheads, opening pores, and cleansing and toning skin for an even, more youthful appearance. Most facials take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour or more to complete, and they’re a great way to relieve pre-wedding stress. Since estheticians often use powerful acne treatments and products on your skin that aren’t sold in drugstores, schedule facials and skin treatments at least a week and a half before your wedding day to monitor any reactions or breakouts.

The Scent of Love

Most women will agree: there’s nothing better than guy who smells fresh and clean. Whether it’s a yummy aftershave, crave-worthy cologne or plain old soap and water, add a bit of aromatic essence to go along with your fancy new Hair for My Wedding look. After all, a great-smelling groom is like the icing on the [wedding] cake.
