10 HOT TIPS FOR GROOMS-TO-BE

DNA Magazine - - GROOMING WITH WILL FENNELL -

No. 1 | Down­load a wed­ding plan­ner app for your smart­phone. I love the Wed­dingHappy app that al­lows for two grooms to or­ga­nize ev­ery de­tail and leave noth­ing to chance – very cool!

No. 2 | Book in to see your den­tist at least three months be­fore the big day for a checkup and clean. Teeth need to be healthy and in good shape be­fore you even think about bright­en­ing your smile.

No. 3 | Once your teeth have been given the all-healthy green light. Dis­cuss teeth whiten­ing with your den­tist. I sug­gest the den­tist’s at-home whiten­ing trays. This pro­fes­sional whiten­ing is su­per ef­fec­tive. Any­thing you buy in the su­per­mar­ket is not go­ing to help you daz­zle any­one!

No. 4 | Plan, book and con­firm beauty and hair ap­point­ments well in ad­vance. Also, have a Plan B pre­pared just in case some­thing goes amiss. (I am not talk­ing about your fi­ancé here, I mean your hair ap­point­ment.)

No. 5 | Fake bronz­ing needs to be done days be­fore the big day. Ab­so­lutely NO in­stant tan­ning on the day of the wed­ding, un­less you want the sheets af­ter your first mar­ried morn­ing to look like you pooped the bed. In love “for­ever” or not, this might be the end of the hon­ey­moon be­fore it be­gins!

No. 6 | Have your hair cut sched­uled seven days be­fore wed­ding day. This will give it plenty of time to set­tle in and lose that “just cut” look. Also, this gives you time to scout for a wig or hair weft if some­thing goes awry!

No. 7 | Book into a skin clinic to have some Ra­dio Fre­quency Skin Tight­en­ing treat­ments. Prefer­ably book a se­ries of six, six weeks out from wed­ding day. Noth­ing firms the skin like this treat­ment. The RF heats your skin so that it gives an in­stant firm­ing ef­fect and over a sixweek pe­riod helps re­build the col­la­gen and elastin. Say “I do” look­ing, lit­er­ally, younger than when you met!

No. 8 | Your hands and nails are go­ing to be on show if you in­tend flash­ing off your Harry Win­ston jew­els to all and sundry. This means a man­i­cure (and pedi­cure too) is a must for the groom-to-be. Have a man­i­cure once a week for the month be­fore your wed­ding. Nails can take some time to get into shape. Speed up the re­sults by ap­ply­ing cu­ti­cle cream each night be­fore bed. Per­haps do this in pri­vate – it can be a real pas­sion killer!

No. 9 | Have a “run through” day a week be­fore the wed­ding in which you use all the prod­ucts that you will use on your­self on the Big Day. This pre­vents any Big Day Dis­as­ters, such as when you re­alise you are al­ler­gic to that new skin firm­ing serum you were rec­om­mended from your friendly cos­metic counter chick.

No. 10 | Do not, un­der any cir­cum­stance, let your hair stylist con­vince you to try some­thing new like streaks or a new colour in your hair. There is plenty of time to ex­per­i­ment once you have the ring on your fin­ger and divorce is the only way he can leave you! One treat­ment, how­ever, that you can have the week be­fore is a ker­atin treat­ment. This will just soften your hair and make it more man­age­able. This is my se­cret to mak­ing my crazy hair con­trol­lable and up­stag­ing all the grooms at ev­ery wed­ding I at­tend!
