Grooming Tips for The Groom

So you'd like to spiff yourself up for the big day, but you don't know an exfoliator from an herbal wrap? Here's all the information you need.

Plan ahead.
Do get a haircut, but don't wait until the last minute to do so. It's also a good idea to try a restoring facial, but again, you shouldn't wait until the day of your wedding (or even the day before). Your face will be cleaned and toned, and an aesthetician will clear any blockages you might have, so you'll need to give your face some time to recover from it all.

Do sweat the small stuff.

Get a pedicure and have your eyebrows shaped. Really. It's nothing radical, but your wife will love the results, and if it's done correctly, your buddies won't even notice the difference.

Leave your morning open.

On the day of the wedding, get your groomsmen together for a trip to the spa. You'll feel better with an entourage, and better still after sipping some champagne while you get a manicure (it's best not to have dirt under your nails when you slip on her ring). Treat yourself to a super-close, straight-edge shave and have your hair trimmed to ensure that your neckline is tidy and your sideburns symmetrical.
