NOMZAMO MBATHA, TV PERSONALITY

MISTAKE

“The trend among men now is that shiny-nails look. I don’t know what it’s called, but I find it a bit effeminate. It’s distracting and I don’t understand where it came from, but I’m not buying into it at all.”

ADVICE

“Men need to be consistent about cutting their nails. The biggest turn-off, however great you look, is long and dirty nails. I always tell my man that his hands must never look like eagle claws!”

LIESL LAURIE, FORMER MISS SA AND MODEL

MISTAKE

“Forgetting to groom feet is a big mistake. There’s nothing worse than a guy with ashy feet and bad toenails. First impressions last and hard, ashy feet and chipped nails are a definite turn-off.”

ADVICE

“Men shouldn’t be afraid to get a manicure and pedicure at least once every three weeks.”

AYANDA THABETHE, TV PERSONALITY AND MODEL

MISTAKE

“The biggest grooming mistake men make is over-trimming their hairlines. It isn’t cool. Guys should be careful that their barber doesn’t just do his own thing.”

ADVICE

“Go with what makes you feel comfortable, but ensure it isn’t overboard. Everything should be done in moderation. Less is more!”

BOITY THULO, TV PERSONALITY

MISTAKE

“The biggest mistake men make is not grooming themselves because they think it’s unmanly. That’s just an excuse for laziness.”

ADVICE

“Put in some effort, guys! Cut your toenails or go to a salon and have a professional trim them for you. You don’t have to be a metrosexual man to take care of yourself.”

LEANNE DLAMINI, TV PERSONALITY

MISTAKE

“The whole beard trend that’s happening right now doesn’t work for me. I love a beard, but it shouldn’t be allowed to grow like a wild forest. It still needs to be trimmed, clean and tidy.”

ADVICE

“Guys should definitely be having more manicures and pedicures. I’ve persuaded my husband to have pedicures monthly. Guys also need to moisturise their feet.”

MINNIE DLAMINI, TV PERSONALITY

MISTAKE

“Skin is important and men should be paying more attention to it. ”

ADVICE

“Many guys think it’s a woman’s prerogative to have treatments at a salon for anything other than hair, but any man would do well to invest in a facial or a peel at least once a month.”
