A few days before the wedding, visit your hair stylist for a slight trim to neaten things up for a tidy hair cut to avoid the ‘just cut’ look.
Organise your bachelor party at least two to three days before the wedding, don’t keep it for the night before the big day.So get it done and over in time. If you plan it a night before the wedding, you will be deadly tired and sleepy on your big day.
On the Day of the Wedding
Do not shave the day before your wedding, avoid razor burns by shaving in the direction of hair growth. Shave right before you plan to get dressed for the ceremony and use foam, not a cream. Use a brand new razor and lots of hot water. There can be nothing worse than prickling your bride with a stubble. Alternatively simply go to a barber, sit back and relax!
If possible, make an appointment for the morning of your wedding to get a shampoo and blow dry as it will be a great relaxing treat, and you will definitely find that it is worth your time to look and feel great on your wedding day.
