5 Men’s Grooming Mistakes That Women Hate

Come on guys we are in 2018 and you should be getting better about finding what women like and definitely what they hate.

In most situations, women are the ones who take more care of their beauty and grooming routine. But as things change every year we are seeing a lot of guys getting more and more worried about their looks, and they are right.

5 Men's Grooming Mistakes That Women Hate : Grooming | https://www.royalfashionist.comTip: If you want to attract a girl, why not just listen to what they have to say about what you are doing wrong? If you feel that your girl is not very honest about “telling it as it is”, talk to your closest friend and ask her what you are doing wrong.

Anyway, let’s get to the point. If you follow these basics here, you should be going in the right direction:

I also think that a more tanned skin will make you look better, but there is a thin line between tanned and orange looking.

Instead: If you are not into tanning beds because of health issues, take some time during the week to get a nice color under the sun (more recommend early in the morning or late afternoon).

You don’t need to get a very dark tan to look good. Just getting like two hours of a good tan should do the trick.

Long Beard

5 Men's Grooming Mistakes That Women Hate : Grooming | https://www.royalfashionist.comAre the long beard days over yet? Some women would like to think so, but a lot of them are still attracted to full beard men.

According to research, women are more attracted to men with stubble beards or full beards instead of clean shaved men. But I don’t want to talk about the length of your beard but how you maintain it.

It doesn’t matter if you keep your facial hair short or long, you should be trimming it regularly. Having a full beard doesn’t mean that you should let it stay dry, dirty and many times stinky.

Instead: Keep your facial hair trimmed at all times. We are usually busy during the week so make Friday nights your grooming day and make sure your facial hair is looking nice and fresh. Here are some beard products you should try.

Hairy Back

Keeping your back smooth is not an easy task but like everything that is worth while, there is a price to be paid.

We advise three ways of getting rid of your back hair issue:

Hair laser removal: The most expensive method but the one for long time results. The hair laser removal procedure should be the one to go after.

Back Wax:  Back wax is our second recommendation but also very painful if you are a very hairy guy.

Back Hair Shaver: It is a quick and hurtless option but not so effective. Usually, when you shave with razors and electric shavers the hair grows thicker.

Too Much Scent

5 Men's Grooming Mistakes That Women Hate : Grooming | https://www.royalfashionist.comGuys, less is more. That’s a #1 rule, especially for fragrances.

I am talking about not only perfumes but also skin/hair products. If you choose products with too strong fragrances, no girl will want to stay beside you.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you should have your own set of products. Your girl’s lavender skin lotion should stay on her side of the bathroom.

Here are some of my grooming products recommendations:

Perfect Browns

5 Men's Grooming Mistakes That Women Hate : Grooming | https://www.royalfashionist.comWe here from the Royal Fashionist team are all for men wanting to better their looks but sometimes we go a little bit over the top.

The perfect lined browns is not a good look for men, sometimes not even for women.

You somehow have to repair some imperfections but try to leave it as natural as possible. I am talking about maybe take some of the edges but don’t try to create a perfect line.


Self-care is like everything else in life, you should find the right balance for it. If you don’t do it at all then you get sloppy, and if you do it too much you will look like a freak.

Is there anything else worst than the things I mentioned above? let me know in the comments below 🙂
