Your long awaited wedding day is just around the corner. The suit is ordered, the shoes are polished and the accessories have been carefully chosen – but what about the rest of your look? Self care is just as important for the groom as it is for the bride and with all eyes on you and your partner come wedding morning, you’ll want to present the best possible version of yourself. That includes glowing skin, tidy, clipped nails (yes, booking yourself in for a professional manicure is important!) and a fresh haircut too.
While brides have the pre-wedding grooming routine nailed, grooms are catching on too, booking themselves in for facials, waxing, laser treatments, scrubs, manicures and more. Most treatments require a decent lead-in time for best results, but nevertheless, there’s lots of things you can do the morning of your wedding to ensure you look perfectly polished for the big event ahead… and all the photos that will make up your treasured wedding album for many years to come!
When it comes to hair, a great cut in the week leading up to the wedding morning is key. Now is probably not the time to experiment with a new look – hair disasters don’t do any wonders for stress levels, trust us! – so book in with your go-to stylist ahead of time and go for your usual cut.
Next, be sure to stock up on good quality styling products that will help you keep your hair in place all day and night. Remember, you’re not only contending with the elements, you’ll also be working up a sweat on the dance floor so a decent wax, gel and hairspray are vital in your grooming kit.
The right hair tools are also crucial for achieving a put together look and you can’t go wrong with Dyson products.

Looking for inspiration? Check out the video below with hairdresser to the stars Dylan Bradshaw who shares his top tips for achieving a relaxed style using the Dyson Corrale.
‘Men are afraid, they think they can only style their hair with a little bit of product in it, but you can actually do it with a hair tool and the Corrale is really brilliant for that where it just really changes the texture of the hair,’ Dylan says.
‘It’s a really great way of turning the hair around really, really quickly. You don’t have to do your whole head (although it takes just five minutes). You can just do your fringe.’
‘I don’t think as men we should ever feel bad about spending that little time or effort on how we look or how we present ourselves, especially our hair. ‘
