We at Cairo West Magazine decided to put together a list of the 8 ways a man can take things up a notch in the world of grooming without looking too “done”.
- Trim the nose hairs.
This is something very basic that makes a world of difference. Believe me when I tell you this is something that people do notice.
- Clean the hair off your ears and neck.
This is something your barber can do for you monthly that gives the appearance of good grooming. The sight of long ear hairs, or neck hair going into the collar of your shirt, is never very attractive.
- Keep your nails short and clean.
Dirty, long fingernails require no explanation as to why they don’t work. Why not try a monthly manicure/pedicure to have someone take care of this for you.
- Have your clothes tailored to fit your body.
No matter what shape you are, the right fit makes everything look so much better.
- Cleanse your face on a regular basis with a facial soap.
So many men use the same soap on their face that they use on their body. Most body soaps are too strong for the face. You must invest in a cleanser that is just for the face, as the facial skin is much more sensitive than the skin on the body.
- Remember, less is more when it comes to fragrance.
It’s great to smell good, but everyone doesn’t have to smell it. Fragrance is such a personal preference, and you really must find the one that works best for you. Just remember not to bathe in it.
- Match your belt to your shoes.
This is really simple and makes a world of difference. If you are wearing black shoes, you don’t wear a brown belt. This basic tip makes everything you wear look that much better.
