US MEN AND OUR TURNOFFS: EASY CUTS POINTS OUT OUR GROOMING AND ETIQUETTE SLIP UPS THAT MAKE WOMEN CRINGE
There is a lot of discourse on grooming, yet the common misconception is the emphasis on grooming of women. It is important to understand that grooming is a must for all individuals, regardless of the gender. While some people follow grooming rituals without realizing it and robotically, it may not come as naturally to others. There are a lot of rituals men should follow. Keeping a common saying “first impression is last impression” in mind, follow this grooming guide and be sure to have a lasting impression!
Body Odor: Body odor is a massive turn off. Showering every day and using deodorant is the easiest way to combat body odor. Body odor is a bigger problem especially during the summer due to the formation of bacteria in areas of the body where sweat gets clogged and trapped. Fight the body odor and half the battle is won.
Swearing: A sailor’s mouth should be left at sea. A few f***s and sht*ts used strategically to get your point across is one thing, but swearing after every other sentence will make you look like an uncultured swine.
Violence: Unless you get a black eye because you smacked on the rim while making a slam dunk, there is no excuse that can justify it. Violence is a huge turnoff. Apart from physical violence, even verbal violence is something to avoid. Remember, the first one to get angry in an argument loses the debate.
Messy Hair: Messy hair gives off a care free attitude, which can be a bad thing. Unless you are opting for a “right out of bed” look, make sure you always brush/comb your hair before leaving the house. Though this may sound rhetoric, some people may have short hair and neglect the basic ritual of combing their hair.
Gnarly Nails: Unclipped toe and finger nails look plain disgusting. Make sure you keep your toe and finger nails clipped and clean. A simple effort can go a long way in your overall look.
Unnecessary Hair: Unkempt facial hair makes one look messy and maybe even dirty. If you like facial hair, then make sure you trim it in timely interval. But nose hair needs to be trimmed and unibrows need to be removed (through threading or plucking) in order to keep up a well groomed look.
To round things off, your face requires a little extra care to complete your grooming. Make sure you wash your face every day and apply moisturizer and sunscreen to avoid sub damage and breakouts.
Getting your chest and back hair waxed can help reduce sweating and body odor bacteria formation on your body (you can give Easy Cuts a try). Your hair can make or break your look so an occasional hair treatment is another ritual that men can opt for to keep their hair tame and nourished. If you want to go an extra mile then get a manicure and pedicure and be sure to look polished. Remember manicures and pedicures are designed to clean your nails and not targeted to a specific gender. Sometimes pamper yourself with a shave, and ask to get your nose hair and unibrows to be removed. Lastly an occasional full facial or facial cleansing can get rid of the blackheads and acne on your face.
If you want to notch up your look and pamper yourself then book yourself a grooming appointment at your nearest Easy Cuts!
