Grooming the Groom

While the groom’s pre-wedding prep isn’t quite as extensive as that of his bride, he can’t just throw on a tux and show up. After all, those photos will last a lifetime. To make sure the groom looks as good as the woman on his arm, try these tips from the experts at Mario Tricoci Hair Salons & Day Spas:

Hair. Grooms should have their hair trimmed one week before the wedding to avoid that “just cut” look. If the groom wants to change up his look, he should talk to his stylist about different cuts and products a few months before the big day to allow time for any needed adjustments.

Face. While shaving provides a good daily exfoliation, grooms need to take a few extra steps to get their skin in picture perfect shape. A few months before the wedding, guys should consult with a professional esthetician who can recommend a good daily cleansing regimen as well as a cleansing facial, which can unblock pores on the nose and forehead. If needed, an esthetician can also tame unruly eyebrows.

Nails. Buffed, even nails and callous-free hands are a must for men on their wedding day. Grooms should schedule a manicure (and perhaps a pedicure) one to two days before the festivities begin.

Body and Mind. Regular massage is a powerful tool to combat mental and physical stresses. So it’s little wonder both grooms and brides in the throes of wedding planning are making time for an appointment with a massage therapist. Massage can be tailored to deliver desired results — from targeting achy muscles to providing a needed energy boost and reducing stress.
