Get a Clean Shave
For the ultimate groomed look you should get a proper shave. Traditional barbers believe that you can get the cleanest shave with a straight razor. Yes, we are talking about those slick blades that you can sharpen yourself on a leather belt and use over and over again for the rest of your life. Here is a good view of all the best straight blade razors that you can still buy to this very day.
Get a Haircut
Bad hair will make you look messy, sloppy and can make a huge difference in the end result of your photographs. Do a bit of research on the most popular hairstyles for men and ask your local hairdresser about the possibilities of these hairstyles with your natural hair type and your face shape. A good haircut will do wonders for your confidence so you will feel great at the shoot.
Reconsider Your Beard Style
If you have a beard then you should check out some of the most popular beard styles and see if it is time for a change or time to freshen up your beard. A beard that is cared for looks brilliant and will bring out the manly man in all of your photographs.
Choose Your Outfit Carefully
This is one of the hardest decisions you will have to make during your shoot. It isn’t easy to figure out what to wear but in general, your outfit should at least match the main goal of your shoot. For example; if you are taking the shoot for business purposes then your outfit should be smart-casual or professional. If you are taking a shoot for casual family purposes then a smart-casual or even casual outfit that suits you well should be just fine.
Do a Mini Pre-Shoot
A good way to see if your chosen outfit, hair and beard style suits you well is by asking a friend to take a couple of shots of you before the shoot. These shots will help you determine whether your clothes are fitted well if the outfit matches and you can spot anything about your outfit or hair that you don’t like. And if changes need to be made then there is still plenty of time to do these changes before the big shoot.
