A Cut Above
As much as there is talk about what the bride should wear and how her make-up and hair should look, there is not enough talk about how the groom should be, well, groomed.
So why not treat your fiance to a haircut and shave by a professional barber for your wedding?
Salons for men are popping up all over the country, with barbers who know what they're doing with a scissor and a straight edge razor. You, and your groom, may be surprised to learn that these barber shops have a wide range of services including, shoe shines, manicures, custom tailoring and amenities such as complimentary beverages and pool tables.
Treat your fiance to a haircut, shave and any other services you think he needs, I mean you think he'd enjoy. He can even make a day out of it and bring his dad, brothers and groomsmen. As with your own hair, you may want to send him for a trial a few weeks or months before the big day to make sure you and he likes what they do.
