looking great on wedding day[Page 1 of 1]

Grooms can knock one of the bride's underlying fears out of the ballpark by looking like a million bucks on wedding day. This article provides some insight into how grooms can get groomed while retaining some sense of manly dignity, covering the parts that show the most: Your handsome mug, and your full head of hair. (If you don't have hair, that's one less thing to worry about!)

A Quick Word About the Bride

As you'll no doubt be made aware, the bride and the bridesmaids will kick off wedding day by heading to a salon where the bride and the party will get their hair, nails, and maybe even makeup done. If they're going all out, the bride will have arranged for a massage complete with "ocean citrus" herbal blends etc. etc. Of course, her journey to get to the wedding day starts long before, as your bride will have explored and tested hair salons or spas to find just the right place to get everything right on wedding day. She wants to look perfect.

The Groom's 'Do

About three months before the wedding, find a salon that has experience in getting grooms ready on the day of the wedding. Go there. Tell them what you are looking for (based on this article). Schedule an appointment to get your hair chopped leading up to the wedding. "Three months is a perfect amount of time to get that butchered hair of yours up to snuff," explains Carole Friedman, New York-based hair consultant with 25 years in the industry. "Your barber - god bless him - has probably put all sorts of cut lines in your hair that are going to show up in the wedding photos. Three months of consistent cutting by the same stylist will even that all out. You can always go back to the barber after the wedding!"

Have your final pre-wedding haircut no later than two weeks prior to the wedding day. Two weeks, the guys at GroomGroove.com have learned, is just enough time for the groom's hair to look fresh but not too fresh to show any mistakes.

The Groom's Ugly Mug

The week before the wedding things get really busy. You want to avoid breaking out into zits like the high school weakling you left behind. A trip to the spa or dermatologist can ensure that your skin will look its best. This will probably mean a facial treatment ("A what?!") to cleanse, remove any dead skin and get rid of any unsightly blackheads or blemishes. Facials aren't just for women. GroomGroove.com have learned that a facial should be done no later than three days before wedding day as they can leave some redness for up to a day or two after a treatment.

A Professional Shave

If it's still a bit much for you to waltz into a spa to have a men's facial, you can certainly treat yourself to a professional shave at a reputable barber or at a men's chain like The Art of Shaving. Once you try it, you might be hooked.

I was basically woriendng if you ever considered modifying the design of your website? It is very well written; I love what you have got to say. But maybe you could include a little more in the way of written content so people might connect to it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Your Comments There are also a few companies that specifically rent classic and sports cars. I operate Classic Cars and Byways near Boston; another company is Sports Car Rentals in Charlottesville, VA.

I'd also mention trying a professional shave out once before you decide to do that on your wedding day. Although I had a great experience having a professional shave at The Art of Shaving, my neck has really sensitive skin and even the pro couldn't leave me without some razor burn.

Just one thing about that personal Shave.... make sure if you're getting a straight razor shave that you know the barber is skilled and won't be slicing and dicing you before the big day! I had a barber slice me on the morning of a Big office Christmas party so bad I was still bleeding freely that evening! Something to beware of!
