Good Grooming Pays Dividends – 7 RemindersBy Angela Marshall, 2nd Nov 2010
When someone is neat, tidy and well presented whether they are dressed in formal or informal attire, good grooming is about perfecting the fine details of your appearance. It pays dividends to be well groomed. Regardless of your income, background or lifestyle, modern women and men have no excuse for being badly groomed. If you are clean, polished and look presentable people straightaway think you are professional in your work and are more trustworthy than someone who looks scruffy. You will convey confidence and self-esteem and it doesn’t take much time to transform your appearance simply by attending to minor details. You may have the appropriate clothes that suit you but poor grooming will ruin your entire look.
Make time to examine your clothes regularly for dirty marks, lost buttons, split seams, tears or loose hems. Always check, before going out, in a full-length mirror how your clothes look on you from front and back and check them during the day when you go to the washroom. Being well groomed some days and not others indicates you are not consistent and therefore not reliable.
To be well groomed all the time you need to create a routine with good habits.
- Good hygiene
- Clean well manicured nails and feet
- Polished shoes in good repair
- Clean teeth and fresh breath
- Neatly pressed clothes
- Clean Hair
- Skin clean and looking fresh
