Why your First Impression Matters
Let’s Talk about Your First Impression.
Yes, first impressions do matter. And no, not just for those you like to think of as superficial, rich, socialites on reality TV. You know what they say “Your First Impression is your last Impression”.
First impressions matter because like it or not, they are the first indicator into your personality, and will cause the person looking at you to make a snap judgment that is almost subconscious.
That snap judgment will tell you, or the person you’re about to meet whether or not they want to form a future relationship with you.
In certain fields like business and politics, your first impression is vital. You ‘size up’ your opponent the way they look and will determine your course of action from there.
And yes, first impressions can be misleading. But we are taking it upon ourselves to make sure you mitigate that risk of a bad first impression by giving you some of our famous Spruce tips to ensure that you nail that interview, pitch meeting or whatever it is that will make you the next million dollars.
The easiest and largest way to change people’s perception of you is to groom correctly. That means removing all sorts of extra hair. From your head, your nose, and most importantly your face. We’ve already talked about how to get the best shave of your life.
Now it’s time to really focus on that clean, hair-free, smooth look.
If you’re growing your hair out, or want that Viking beard, you will go through a period of looking like an absolute Neanderthal. And no, we don’t mean that in a good way.

There’s other stuff you can do, like dressing appropriately that will push you that extra mile. This means, figuring out what style suits your body type, and sticking to that. Experiment all you want during that phase, but know that there will be one or two looks that will suit you the best.
Stick to those. Don’t fancy yourself as a clown and try out outlandish stuff for no reason.
These are two extremely simple ways for you to get started. Get on it.
