Guys, we don’t expect you to get pedicures or wax your eyebrows all the time, but a little bit of grooming can help you out a lot. We want to see you clean, with fresh clothes and presentable-looking. We want to present you to our friends and family without fear of them judging us. It’s just the honest truth. So, put some time into your hygiene and everything will be so much better. Here are 15 easy things guys can do to look better.
1. Personal hygiene goes a long way
Brushing your teeth, combing your hair, taking a shower and cleaning your clothes can do a lot for first impressions and girls who might want to get to know you better. Just saying…
2. Mustaches…they’re not that cool
If your mustache is curling down around your mouth, that’s not cool, it’s gross so just get rid of it. Unless you’re Tom Selleck.
3. Eyebrows– there should be two of them
Just do a little bit of plucking between them so you have two distinct brows. It shouldn’t be that hard.
4. Bacne is not cool
If you have acne that frequently congregates on your back, take care of it. We don’t wanna know about it.
5. Trim nose and ear hair
We don’t want to know how hairy you really are. Trim the stuff that grow out of your holes so nobody remembers.
6. Wear a soft sweater
But not of the ugly variety, please. Soft sweaters show off your chest and shoulders and are so nice to touch.
7. Stand up straight
Slouching makes your clothes puff out weirdly and also makes you look fatter. Push your shoulders back and your head up and back.
8. Tuck it in, tuck it in
The long tail ends of a dress shirt look that way for a reason– it’s meant to be tucked into your pants. No matter how you wear it, leaving it untucked will always look sloppier.
9. Shave your neck
Nothing is less attractive than a bunch of stubbly neck growth. Um, gross. No girl likes to see that. Shave it up and keep it in check.
10. Sneakers are for the gym
I hate it when guys wear sneakers at inopportune times. This includes, but is not limited to, dates, presentations, lectures, and any other time a different shoe could be worn.
11. Get rid of all those white socks
Ugh. This outfit of Adam Sandler’s is already not cool, but those white socks make it the worst. Wear black or low-cut crew socks instead.
12. Throw your Axe away
Nobody likes the smell of this stuff– it reminds us of locker rooms of teenage boys. Wear deodorant that has a nice smell instead. Don’t cover up your stench, enhance it with deodorant.
13. Wear some jeans that actually fit
Look, this is not the 90’s anymore. You can’t get away with having terribly baggy pants. We want to see pants that show off your legs. They don’t have to be skinny jeans but they do have to fit right.
14. Wear a henley
Instead of a plain white t-shirt, put a henley shirt on. You can push the sleeves back if it’s hot out. But, henleys are so much nicer to look at than a white t-shirt.
15. If you can’t grow facial hair, don’t try
Nobody likes your patchy, uneven, ridiculous-looking scruff. If you know facial hair doesn’t come in well for you, then stick to your day old stubble or clean-shaven.
