5 pre-date grooming tips EVERY gent should know


So you have made the big move, you’ve asked her out and she’s said yes – nice work! Now you’re thinking, what next? What do I wear? Should I shave or not? Don’t freak out, we have you covered.

You are your own man, so you know what style you’re comfortable with and how to make yourself look your best. You just need to make sure you get the little things right before you step out that door to head off on your date.

1) Always Dress Well

Sounds so obvious doesn’t it? One good rule to abide by, especially when it’s a first date is – you can never be over dressed. We don’t suggest you wear a tux to the restaurant, but sharpen your look with a sports coat. This almost always puts you a level above.

2) Eyebrows

Refer to our recent eyebrows post for how to make sure you maintain your masculinity when maintaining your eyebrows. You want to make sure you have your brows in check before you see her or it may prove a little distracting when making conversation across a small table.

3) Cologne

The right cologne can say so much. We recommend playing it by the season, so as it’s spring right now, go for something crisp and fresh.

4) Nails

Trim those nails and cut back those cuticles boys. Nails are the little detail that say so much. If you take care of your nails, it shows you have attention to detail and take pride in your appearance – she’ll love that.

5) Moisturise

A bit like the eyebrows, you don’t want to finish a date only to get home and look at yourself in the mirror to find you had a flake of dry skin on your nose the whole time. Avoid this by moisturising at least 30 minutes before you meet her as this will allow time for the moisturiser to absorb into your skin.

Best of luck, lads.
