Put your best face – and hair and beard, if you have one – forward. There are moments in your life that require you to be on your A game, dates, interviews, and some online profiles. Our advice to you, don’t wait until the last minute to work on your best face. Get to work now. Put some effort into putting your best face forward, that call back, the second date, or even that follow could depend on it.
Invest in yourself
Invest time, energy, and money in yourself. Take the time to find the right barber, or to step up your own skills. Add regular cuts and shape-ups to your schedule because it could go down at any moment. The call back for that first interview could come tomorrow, would you be prepared? (Get ready, shop the Scotch Porter Hair, Skin, and Beard Collections.)
Regular grooming will make it easier to prepare for short notice events. Haircuts aren’t your only focus, build your routine to include regular cleansing, deep conditioning and constant moisturizing. Dates and potential employers will appreciate a lustrous head of hair and beard. Don’t neglect your skin, drink lots of water regularly and care for your skin. Similar to your hair, develop the right routine for your skin as well, focusing on regular cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing your skin.
Highlight your best qualities
At your interview or on a date, you’re already clear that you need to highlight your best qualities. But you’ll need to highlight more than the experience on your resume or all the cool points you’ve earned through the years. Highlight your best features. Employers want employees who can get the job done, but believe, they’re also checking to see how professional and appealing you look, especially if you’re client facing. Make eye contact, keep your head high, and smile; all of these exhibit great social behavior for interviews and dates but they also show off your grooming skills, your pleasant smile, dimples, nicely kept beard and flawless skin.
Put the work in now so you can reap the benefits later. Not only will the person across from you appreciate the effort you’ve put in, but you’re sure to feel great. Every Scotch Porter man knows, when you look great, you feel great.
