4. Pay attention to your nonverbal communication
Your appearance is also greatly influenced by how you act and communicate. In recent years, there has been a great amount of research focusing on nonverbal communication. A person's body language can give away a great deal about their personality and current mood but it can also influence perceptions of you and how you look. Men who act and communicate confidently are actually judged to be much better looking than similar looking men who act and communicate poorly. Even though improving your nonverbal communication can instantly improve your appearance to strangers, the challenge comes in maintaining a conscious awareness of the message you are portraying to those around you. Next time you're at a party, instead of crossing your legs and arms try loosening up with a more open posture. Crossing of the arms and legs gives out a defensive and unwelcoming vibe that will keep people at bay. And never slouch; it looks messy and gives off a vibe of low self-confidence. Stand up straight and look people in the eyes when you talk to them.
5. Maintain the mane
Our hair and the way we wear it significantly influences how we look. The right hairstyle can really elevate your appearance and the wrong hairstyle can really downgrade it. There are seemingly endless possible hair styles to choose from but only a few that will properly fit your face and personality. Make sure to pick one that does both; seek out professional consultation if you are unsure which ones work for you. Once you have the right style, it becomes extremely important that you properly maintain it. Take care of your hair by properly shampooing and conditioning it, you should also try to comb it at least once a week to stimulate blood flow to help combat a flaky scalp. Schedule regular visits to your local barber or stylist; depending on how fast your hair grows, that may be every three to six weeks. Many stylists also perform free cleanups of your neckline and sides between haircuts -- it takes less than 10 minutes and can really help prolong your look. Lightly style with product but be sure not to go overboard or you may come off as looking greasy.
Through our busy schedules and hectic lives, we sometimes forget to take care of our appearance. The key is to incorporate the little things and details into our daily rituals so we keep looking our best.
