Taking care of your hair, skin, eyebrows etc. is not just for women. If you are wearing the most fabulous suit in the most striking color and have not paid attention to grooming, you loose all points and even worse the promotion, job or client.
Where do you start?
Showering every morning, using deodorant, brushing your teeth and using mouthwash are the basics. It probably seems simple, but these are aspects of grooming that are often overlooked.
Gone are the days when good complexions were only for women. Men want to have good complexions also. It is difficult to look healthy and successful if your skin is dry, oily or breaks out. There are lots of skin care products on the market for men and one trip to a beauty advisor will help you decide which products are best for your skin. If you have a normal skin type with naturally clear skin, you are blessed. Keep your skin looking great by using a cleanser and moisturizer formulated for normal skin types. If you have oily skin and are prone to breakouts use products formulated for oily skin.
Your hair is a very important aspect of your appearance. Start by keeping it clean and in place. Get a good haircut that you can manage easily, untidy hair is not appropriate for business.
* Go easy on gel or spiked hair in business situations
* Don’t part your hair down the centre – centre parts don’t look great on many men.
* If you color your hair have it done by a professional on a regular basis.
* Don’t neglect the back of your head – you don’t want to look like you just took a nap.
Keep your nails in good condition. Don’t chew them down to nothing or have them dirty.
Keep eyebrows trimmed. Bushy long eyebrows won’t add to your business look.
Avoid wearing strong fragrances in business situations. Since so many people have allergies to fragrances more and more work environments have a fragrance -free policy. A person should only be able to detect your fragrance only when very close.
