This holiday season, men want to look their best. Whether spending the holiday with that special someone, meeting the girlfriends parents for the first time, or taking family home for the holidays, men want to be confident that their appearance won't be what everyone remembers after New Years. Here are a few grooming tips to help men look their best.
Get a Haircut
While this may sound simplistic, a basic haircut can improve a man's overall look dramatically. However, depending on where you live you may want to have the barber not take as much off the top to help keep your head warm.
Also, think about doing something with those sideburns. Some guys look great with sideburns and others look like bad impersonation of Elvis. If you want Elvis, go watch an impersonator the next time you play slots in Vegas. Even if it is just shortening them up a bit or thinning them out, make the sideburns look a little more presentable.
Lose the Scruff
Unless you are planning on spending the holidays alone with someone that loves the scruffy look, lose it. When showing off to the family over the holidays, there is no need to look like you just got in from a two week mountain excursion.
If you normally wear a bears, mustache, or goatee, trim it up. The Braun beard and mustache trimmer is a great tool for this.
Nails Neat, Clean, and Trimmed
Something that many guys overlook are their nails. Take a look at them. If they can be used as a makeshift backscratcher, then it is time to trim them down. Also, if your nails are anything other than white, clean them.
Don't forget your toe nails. Two things you don't need. The first is the dagger toenail that pokes holes through your socks. The next are the discolored nails (due to lack of care) that make people wonder if there is something wrong with your feet.
Trim Your Nose Hair
Any guy over 30 knows what I am talking about. You go to shave or trim your mustache and you have stray hairs hanging out of your nose. Be sure to check these before you leave for the holidays. Trust me, if you don't trim them now, they will find a way to make themselves noticed at the dinner table.
Casinoguide.com and other sites put a lot more emphasis on male grooming and outfits around the holiday for a simple fact. As guys, we tend to overlook or not care about the small stuff. Remember, while we might not care, others will. The holidays are a time to look and feel your best. Take a few extra minutes on grooming before you head out to make the holidays better for all.
