Before you shave lets discuss a few things.
The final shave before your wedding day is probably one of the most important shaves you will ever have to complete.
Before we continue, if you have a beard don’t feel the need to shave! Probably not the best time to be trying out a new style.
We do have a little advice for the bearded man, make sure you have some oil and a comb with you on the day, you will be photographed all day.
You want to make sure your beard is in fine form, even if you’re not aware or ready for a photograph to be taken. Read our blog about maintaining your beard HERE
On that note let’s move on to shaving…
If you generally shave and you’re not happy with how your skin appears it’s really important to take care of your skin, it will only get worse with further irritation.
As the ladies have a hair trial, have a trial facial hair trial about 3 weeks before your wedding day. Pop on the full suit and tie and trial a clean-shaven look, a little stubble or a full 5 o’clock shadow.
Take a couple of snaps in daylight and see which look you prefer, looking in the mirror and taking pics are very different so make sure you take some happy snaps outside in daylight.
Take note of how many days it took for the perfect amount of stubble to grow.
It’s often a great idea to make time to have a professional shave. You will want to trial this process also so you can monitor and trial the growth of hair.
If you do opt to shave yourself and you are using a disposable razor, make sure it’s a fresh one each time you perform a trial shave and the final shave, that way you know you will achieve the same result each time. A disposable blade should not be used more than 5 times, at this point the blade will become blunt and cause the skin irritation.
If you generally use the same bar of soap front to back and top to bottom, then we can’t ask too much of you, we know BUT we strongly suggest you book in sometime for the Face Plus Medispa “Groom the Groom” package.
We have allocated two weeks for this program but you are only required to come in once each week. The first week, for your muscle relaxants and the second visit will be for your facial.
Your muscle relaxants don’t give you the frozen look, we promise, see before and after below
We believe that it’s imperative for men to still have movement to ensure they still appear masculine. The muscle relaxant appointment will be approximately 4 weeks out from your wedding day.
The facial appointment should be no more than a week out from your wedding date. Check out the full package HERE
