Guys: How to Look Attractive

Guys: How to Look Attractive

Follow these steps to look smart and attractive.

Start with a shower

Be clean. Use body wash or soap that has a fresh scent and wash your hair thoroughly.

Apply deodorant

It’s the first thing you apply after you get out of the shower. Find a scent that suits you.

Wear aftershave

Don’t wear too much, but make sure you apply enough to smell good. Your nose will get used to the smell after a couple of minutes and you will stop being able to smell it, but others will still be able to smell you. Again, it’s handy to find a scent that works for you.

Deal with your facial hair

Groom your facial hair every day, whether you are clean-shaven or have a beard. For the clean-shaven look, shave every morning before you leave the house, using shaving cream and a sharp razor. If you have a moustache or a beard, make sure the edges are clean and tidy; trim any long hairs.

Brush your teeth

No one likes the smell of bad breath. Take care of your teeth by brushing them twice a day. Replace your toothbrush every three months and floss every night. Finish with mouthwash.

Style your hair

Experiment to find out what hairstyle works best for you. Once you’ve settled with a style, wash and trim it regularly. Even short hair needs trimming every couple of weeks. Feel free to apply hair products to make your hair look shinier and healthier.

Suitable clothing

First-things-first, make sure you purchase clothes that fit. It’s not a good look to have clothes that are too small or too big on you. Even if you are a large person, don’t try to hide it with baggy clothes, it will only make you look worse. Wear trousers that reach your ankles and no further, long-sleeved shirts that reach your wrists and shirt length that fits your hips.

Do your laundry

Shirts, socks and underwear only last one wear before they start to smell and need to be washed. You may get away with wearing trousers or jackets more than once before they require a wash. Make sure you wash your clothes regularly and iron your shirts before you hang them up.

Good posture

Keep your shoulders squared, your spine straight and centre your hips over your feet. Standing up straight brings confidence, which people find attractive.

Smile

Get in the habit of smiling often. Smiling at someone is one of the easiest arts to master that can instantly claim attraction.

Make eye contact

Making consistent eye contact not only demonstrates that you are paying attention and are interested, but it also hides away any nerves you may have. Don’t be shy, everyone likes people to be making contact with them when they’re talking.

Be humorous

Develop a warm sense of humour and don’t be afraid to show your joy and laughter. Do keep your jokes free of disparaging other groups of people and keep them clean and friendly.

Carry the conversation

Learn how to carry a conversation to help people feel more relaxed around you. If you need practice, how about chatting with a stranger next time you’re waiting in public or on public transport? Know how to inquire how someone is and use that to lead into further topics to get the conversation flowing. It is useful to ask simple, open-ended questions that cannot be answered with a “yes” or a “no”.

Speak clearly

Do not mumble or rush your words. Think about what you’re going to say before you open your mouth to help prevent you saying anything embarrassing or discouraging.

Be a gentleman

Saying “please” and “thank you” are just the basics, but make sure you’re using them. Mind your P’s and Q’s and show courtesy in situations like holding doors open for others. Be respectful of others and avoid being rude. Avoid swearing and crude comments.

Highlight your best features

Figure out what colours suit you best and wear them. Generally dark tops are to be avoided, and light colours are to be encouraged. Find out whether you’re more-suited to smart shirts or casual, such as polo shirts.

Exercise

Regular physical activity not only helps your body look more attractive, but it also keeps you in good health and raises your mood. Start with basic stretches every day; such as push-ups and sit-ups. Lifting weights will help tone your body, but there’s no need to over-extend yourself with these. Your muscles also require 24-hour rests in between days to build and recover.
