Essential Grooming Tips For The Groomsman

How to perfect your hair, nails, and skin for the big wedding day.

Tuesday, December 01, 2009
You don't just put on a tux—you get dressed up in one. There's a ritual to the fastening of cuff links and the positioning of the bow tie. But while most men take their time perfecting the getup for a big event, they rarely do the same for their hair, nails, and skin. Your grooming should be equal to the occasion.

Style Your Hair
The parted-on-the-side, cemented-with-gel hair helmet works if you look like Cary Grant, Jon Hamm, or Tom Brady. For mortals, however, there's a less slick way to make your dome look more polished: Pick up a hair dryer. "Most guys just shower and go," says New York hairstylist Jerome Obry. "But half an hour later when their hair starts drying, they've got a surprise." You don't need to be a pro with a brush; you can use your fingers to style your hair as you blow-dry it. Once it's dry, keep it in place with a dab of pomade or wax.
