The “stray hair” is your enemy.
After 30 years, the hair on the male’s body grows longer, which hurts his physical appearance. For example, the eyebrows grow thicker and the ear and nose hair become more visible. If you don’t maintain the hair growth on your body it becomes too hairy, thus leaving a bad impression on other people.
Growing hair on the body is not necessarily a sign of becoming old. You may still look young and attractive by trimming unnecessary hair and dressing with style. It means that you need to pay more attention to your dressing style and grooming.
It may seem a daunting task, but it isn’t.
I don’t know of a guy who’d follow a long list of 100 grooming activities for two basic reasons. First of all, you don’t have so much free time to spend in front of the mirror. Second, most guys like to keep their grooming routine dead simple, but still enough to maintain a pleasant physical appearance, which leaves a good impression on other people.
And that’s a key factor in a world where you are being judged by your appearance.
When physical appearance leaves a good impression on others
Taking care of your physical appearance consists of three levels. When you do good in all three stages this makes you look attractive to a lot of people.
The 3 levels of building an attractive physical appearance are:
a) Personal hygiene
Maintaining a good personal hygiene routine is a crucial part of your physical appearance. Do it wrong and you’ll reject many people from you. Poor personal hygiene makes communication with you uncomfortable and due to this a lot of people avoid getting in contact with you. It leaves a bad impression on you which makes people wonder how careless are you about the health and cleanliness of your body. It’s a much safer option to stay away from someone who lacks personal hygiene.
b) Maintain a healthy weight
If you’re a bit overweight, it does not mean that you cannot be attractive. But it also means that your chances to look better increase when you have a natural shape of the body. A natural shape of the body looks way better than an overweight body.
Moreover, being overweight speaks a lot about your unhealthy eating habits or lack of physical activity in life. This is not attractive for people who care to be healthy and are looking to connect with people who share the same value.
It’s even better if you workout. Having a fit body makes you more attractive. It improves your confidence, clothes look better on you and your attitude is more positive.
C) Grooming and style adjustments
Once you maintain your body clean and workout to keep it fit it’s time to give your body that impeccable look of a real gentleman. A male grooming routine will help you polish your look so as you’ll look irresistible.
Men’s grooming and style tips
Have a timely haircut and clean the hair off your neck
The hair on your head should always look fresh and neat. Every time you go out to meet someone make sure you wash your hair before you step out the house. Give it bump by having a timely haircut every 2-3 weeks.
Once being in the hairdresser’s salon ask the hairstylist to trim the hair off your neck. The hair on the neck looks unkempt and very unattractiv.
2. Trim the nose and ear hair
The nose and ear hair are becoming more noticeable when you pass over 30 years old. The hair grows longer and pumps up from the nose or ears which looks unattractive. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are old, but you can still look young by trimming it
3. Trim the eyebrows
Same story with your eyebrows.
Trim and pluck the hair to give your eyebrows that clean look.
If you want to learn how to groom your eyebrows I recommend watching Aaron Marino’s youtube video where he explains how to determine the correct shape of the eyebrows and what tools do you need to perform eyebrow grooming.
4. Shave your face or keep up your beard
Whether you have a beard or you like to have a straight face make sure it looks fresh and enjoyable.
Take a trimmer or a shaving blade and work on your face. Make sure there is no stray hair sticking out in multiple directions. Shave in the same direction as the growth of the hair and soften your facial hair before shaving it.
5. Keep your nails short and clean
Long fingernails tend to accumulate dirt under the nail forming a black line that looks very repulsive.
Cut your nails at least once a weak to maintain your hands clean. Preferably, cut your fingernails after a shower.
6. Have your clothes tailored to fit your body
Don’t wear too loose or too narrow clothing. This is a sign of lacking the taste dressing style.
Your clothing should fit you perfectly without extinguishing your moves and emphasize the advantages of your body.
Tailor all loose clothing to fit your body and your appearance will benefit by this adding to your style.
7. Stand up straight
When communicating with people your attitude is an important factor in leaving a good impression on other people. Keeping your back and neck straight gives you the confidence of a gentlema.
8. When it comes to fragrance less is more
A gentleman needs to smell clean and fresh first of all and adding a little scent of fragrance it makes him irresistible, especially for women.
But don’t make the mistake of using too much fragrance. This shows your lack of style and a strong fragrance is repulsive.
9. Match your belt to your shoe color
Trying to dress in style remember that there are rules you need to follow.
The first rule is to match the color of the belt with the color of your shoes. For example, if you wear black shoes, you should be wearing a black belt.
Believe me, when you are meeting a client or attending a job interview this aspect is going to be noticed. This will show them that you care about the meeting and trying to be your best.
That will make you instantly more attractive.
10. White athletic socks should be worn only with athletic shoes
This is another style rule you don’t want to break if you want to become a stylish guy.
Never, never, never wear athletic socks with black classic shoes.
11. Keep your shoes shining
As a gentleman, you’ll be judged by how clean your shoes are. Wearing dirty or worn out shoes is a sign of bad style. A real gentleman, like James Bond, for example, would never wear shoes like that.
Your shoes should be polished and shiny. If you wear casual shoes make sure they are clean.
12. A firm handshake
Whenever you meet someone face to face your first contact which speaks about you is the handshake. A weak handshake doesn’t impress that much, while a firm handshake makes your partner take you more seriously. This also speaks about your attitude and determines whether your communication partner will respect you or not.
Learning about men’s grooming and style tips is a key element if you need to make a good impression on people. For example, you need to look your best when you go to a job interview, meet a client or going on a date with the girl of your dreams.
You want to impress the people in every single of these situations otherwise you get what you want. Present the best version of your physical appearance at the first meeting. If they’ll like how you present yourself they’ll probably want to know you more. If you don’t leave a good first impression on them chances to get a second date, the job or the client are null.
Remember, people are judging you by the way you look before they will listen to what you have to say. So, grab their attention first by polishing your look making them feel comfortable in your company.
As long as you grabbed their attention you can develop a deeper relationship with them.
