All the Grooms Hair and All the Groomsmen

Elsie Adamo

You could be forgiven for thinking that wedding preparation and pampering is all about the bride.

Spa days, hen’s parties, kitchen teas, bridal showers. The list goes on. What’s a guy to do?

…no seriously, what is a guy to do before the wedding? Do you get your hair cut before the day? On the day? What about a shave? And do you do this with all of your groomsmen?

For some direction, we turned to Barbers Inc, our local Barton lads grooming experts.

In regards to pre-wedding grooming, co-owner Danny Ram says there’s no need to complicate things and recommends that gents pay a visit one day before the big day to look as sharp and fresh as possible.

As for products? Brides wedding makeup is a hotly contested competition for longest wear and best long lasting finish. But what about for lads?

“We use King Brown products which are a ‘wet look’ beeswax based pomade, an alternative to regular men’s hair gel,” explains Danny. “It’s a strong hold and perfect to withstand all the conditions of a long wedding day and night.”

And what about putting in some quality time with your groomsmen? Thanking them for all their hard work in preparation for the wedding (ahem organising the bucks night).

At Barbers Inc, Danny and the team think a little indulgence is just the thing for grooms and their nearest and dearest with packages that can include hot shaves and trims all round.

For the perfect opportunity to see what Barbers Inc can do for you in the lead up to your wedding, they’ll be at UNVEILED The Event at The National Portrait Gallery this Saturday and will be offering the opportunity for all visiting gents to be pampered.

The Barbers will be offering free cut, shave and hot towel treatments to give the guys a taste of the kind of service they provide and there will also be gift bags handed out to the first 100 visitors.

To add some icing on the wedding cake, the team are also giving the grooms a chance to win an exclusive package. All you need to do is provide your email address, name and number and the chance is yours to win the ‘All the Grooms Hair and All the Grooms-men’ package which includes a beer and cheeseboard for the lads on or before the big day. Pop by their stall on the day to enter!
