Odds are when you envision your wedding day look, the James Bond theme music will play in your head as you see yourself decked out in your suit or tux, looking sharp—very sharp. One thing Bond never had to worry about was a bad hair day. He always looked debonair, no matter what. With these five easy grooming tips, your hair will look just as polished in no time.
1. Mind your diet. Healthy hair starts with a healthy diet. It’s important to eat well balanced meals and drink plenty of water to flush toxins and keep your body and hair well hydrated and looking healthy. If you haven’t gotten on the healthy eating bandwagon yet, now’s the time to start.
2. Schedule a haircut a few weeks out. Instead of assuming you’ll have no trouble getting a quick chop before the wedding, save yourself the last-minute scramble and book an appointment with your barber or stylist two to four weeks before the wedding day.
3. Avoid any major style changes. Right before the big day isn’t the time to try out a buzz cut if you’re hair is normally longer or experiment with a Mohawk. It’s best to go with what you know to look your best and get a nice trim instead. If you’re set on a major change, try it out six months in advance, so it can grow out if it isn’t everything you expected.
4. Address hair loss or thinning. Worried about your receding hairline or thin spots? You’re not alone. Check out the Regenepure line from Salonceuticals before the big day. Doctor-recommended for all hair types, the Regenepure DR hair and scalp treatment contains Ketoconazole, which blocks the production of the hormone DHT—the main cause of hair loss in men. The intensive and restorative formula combats dandruff and build-up, while Jojoba oil adds moisture, shine and volume to thin and lifeless hair.
5. Employ styling aids. Make sure to wash and condition your hair on the wedding day to start with a fresh and healthy foundation. Seeing flakes recently? Use a dandruff-busting formula for a few days beforehand. Then rely on a tried-and-true styling product designed for your hair type, whether it’s pomade, wax, gel or mousse to add light hold, control flyaways and frizz, and keep your ‘do locked in all day.
