You deserve to look your best on your wedding day. There’s no day quite as memorable or meaningful to a man’s life, and when you stand in front of your significant other, you want to present the best version of yourself. It eternalizes that moment and makes it all the more special; not to mention that when you’re looking back on all the photos from the big day, you’ll be impressed by just how well-groomed you were!

18/8 San Diego offers individual treatments as well as grooming packages, so you can bring in the whole wedding party and make a day of it. We want you to look your best on the most important day of your life. So whether you need a small manicure or you want the whole enchilada, here are a few tips from the experts for getting ready on your big day.

Treat yourself to a facial

Don’t let stress take over your face. Although preparing for a wedding can feel overwhelming at times (or most of the time), a facial is one of the best ways to relax in preparation for the big day. Treat yourself with one of these to look and feel younger. Not only do they exfoliate and cleanse down to your pores, they also calm you down and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. We recommend getting a facial at least one week before your wedding so that any redness has subsided and you’re looking extra-fresh for the big day.

Get the perfect haircut for you

Someone wise once said, “A man is only as good as his last haircut;” and while that’s mostly a joke, there is a hint of truth to it! Looking and feeling confident is a major part of one’s identity, and you need the right haircut to really capture your look. Go to your favorite men’s salon in San Diego to get a fresh cut.

We recommend getting a haircut 3-5 days before your wedding so it still looks fresh and neat. Make sure your haircut showcases your style, personality, and character, and looks great for photos. Whether it’s a slick comb-over or high fade, looking true to yourself is the most important thing you can do.

Trim your beard

Getting a trim at a barbershop in San Diego is one of the best things you can do for yourself. You won’t have to deal with that itchy beard or long hair and you’ll look younger and feel refreshed. After all, you don’t want to look back at your wedding pictures 20 years from now and think, “Aw man, I wish I had shaved. I look like a caveman!” Shave that beard and trust us, you’ll thank yourself later.

Whiten your teeth

A pearly white smile is one of the most important features of your wedding pictures. Having great teeth will make you look and feel more youthful, and of course, make for some dazzling wedding photos. While many guys don’t admit to doing teeth whitening, a lot of them do. There are services offered in dental offices, beauty salons, and even home kits that are affordable and work well. For the best treatment, use a practitioner who is registered with the General Dental Council.

Get a MAN-icure

From the curve of your eyebrows to the length of your nails, details are everything when it comes to grooming. If your face looks well-groomed but your fingernails are dirty, that’s no bueño. Whether you need a deep clean under your nails or just want a relaxing hand massage, we highly recommend a manicure!

There are many benefits to manicures that most guys don’t think about. If you get one, you’re less likely to get an infection in your nails. Your hands look and feel younger. They make your hands look smoother and since most wedding photos have pictures of the ring in them, it’s not a bad idea to make your hands look good.

Manicures are a great way to deep clean your nails and take care of your cuticles. Most guys don’t take care of their nails, so it’s key to clean them well. Plus, on your special day, your significant other wants to hold clean hands! Maybe she’s never mentioned your nails being dirty, but trust us, she notices. There may be no other opportunity for you to get a manicure – so you might as well use this as an excuse to enjoy yourself!

Let’s face it, feet can be gross; especially your own. But they don’t have to be, especially on your wedding day. Even though nobody’s probably going to see your feet on that special day, getting a pedicure is a great idea.

Pedicures relax your feet and deep clean your toenails. Since you’ll be standing and on your feet all day at your wedding, massaging will help you out a lot. 18/8 San Diego offers a 30-minute treatment that includes a heated foot bath as well as nail and cuticle care. It’s the perfect thing to do for yourself on your big day.
