So, what exactly does grooming mean for the men? Well, grooming is all about taking a shower every day, brushing your teeth daily, shaving your pubic hair, wearing deodorant, and dressing smart.
Some men out there tend to do a commendable job when it comes to the dressing part and pay very little attention to the other grooming practices.

- Unkempt hair – Your hair plays a very major part in your first impression. Believe it or not, as much as people will look at your face and your choice of clothes (or shoes), they will also look at your hair. And trust me, there is nothing as attractive as a man who is well groomed.
- Poorly Groomed pubic hair – In as much as the pubic area is not visible to the public eye, it is important that you keep those areas clean and well groomed. Not for anyone’s sake (not even your lover), but for your own sake. Make it a habit to trim your pubic hair from time to time because at the end of the day, personal hygiene is important.
- Scruffy finger and tore nails–Just like it is for the women, it is important for men not to underestimate the power of clean and trimmed toe and fingernails. They play a big role when making a positive first impression. Therefore, it is important for men to consider getting a professional manicure and pedicure as part of their grooming procedures.
- Body odor – Every man knows that taking a shower daily is important.
