In this competitive business world, most of what we are able to attain is usually based on how we look.
Whether you are getting ready for a business meeting, office or for workplace, proper personal grooming and professional appearance are vital things to gain positive first impression and to show your professionalism too. The way you look and dress up, contributes a huge part in making your personality amazing and alluring.
As the first impression is of utmost importance, the way you look and groom yourself create a great impact on people you meet or work with. Professional appearance and proper grooming are the vital things for both working men and women. That is the reason, we have listed some essential grooming habits to become a confident professional that can make your appearance more professional and appealing in office or at workplace.
Wear Clean and Presentable Clothes
Separating the clothes for hanging out and going to the office could be a best step to get started. Visiting office or workplace wearing clothes with stains and holes is the symbol of unprofessionalism. In order to establish a credible and respectful image in the company, you should dress yourself conservatively. Always wear business suit in basic colors to make your appearance professional and tempting. However, you should comply with the dress code set by the organization if any. For professional women, they should avoid wearing revealing attires. Properly fit, clean and presentable clothes boost confidence and make your personality enticing.
If you are not satisfied by the haircut that you are getting from your current barber, then it is the right time to move on for a better choice to get regular haircut. Frowzy or plain bad hairs can make your personality dull. Judging someone from his/her appearance might not be right but looks matter a lot at professional workplaces and offices. According to the experts, men should get a proactive haircut once a month to keep hairs fresh and neat as well.
Take Care of your Smile
Take good care of your teeth to make your smile beautiful and appealing as well. Brush your teeth daily, floss regularly (after every meal), and invest in good mouth freshener to make each of your breath fresh. Also visit the dentist every six month to maintain good oral hygiene.
Clean your Face Every Day
Washing your face often, every day is the best way to keep your skin clean, healthy and young. Washing your face in morning removes sweat or excess sebum(built during the night) from your skin to you make you fresh. Repeating the same process in evening helps you get rid of dirt, pollutants and other dangerous smoke particles etc. from your skin.
Keep Nails Tidy
We use our hands often when explaining something either in a meeting or in the office and untidy nails can show immediately. Keep your nails trim and clean to boost your overall appearance. It sounds like a tiny and unimportant thing but it can have a significant impact on how people perceive you. Keeping a nail cuter in your desk is also a good idea to keep your nails tidy when you get free time in office.
Maintain Neat Facial Hair
Facial hair is one of the most vital things to be considered when it comes to personal grooming. Whether you like beard or clean shave, make sure your facial hair is properly trimmed and kept well. If you don’t like beard, then get a professional shave every seven days. It not only improves your overall appearance but also makes you feel fresh and relax.
Take Care of what you Smell Like
Having a signature perfume doesn’t cost you much but adds anentire new olfactory breadth to your overall personality. Either it is a body spray, scent or after shave, make sure its smell is not too strong and unpleasing to the nose of a person sitting next to you. Make quality perfume, aftershave or lotion a subtle part of personal grooming.Instead of wasting money on low quality and obsessive choices, explore some of the famous brands and spend on somethingwhich is unique and pleasing to you.
