Let’s get started and see 13 grooming hacks every guy should know to look on fleek every time
- Maintain Your haircut:
I don’t mean to get a Haircut every single week. Because nobody has the time and money to do that.What I mean is you should know how to extend shelf life of your haircut. That way you would look fresh between cuts. Here’s how you can do it by yourself.
Make sure you shave back of your neck when you see 1-2 cm hairs on your neck. A fuzzy neck spoils haircut completely. The best way to do it is to ask someone who lives with you, be it your brother, sister, dad, mom or your friends to help you out. If you want to do it yourself then grab a small mirror and a Razor, use it to see back of your neck and then shave it up to look nice and clean. Then use clippers to blend your beard all the way upto your actual hairs and you do that by going straight up and pulling or sweeping your clippers out to give the nicer blend.
