I’m Aaron Marino, CEO of the men’s image consulting firm AlphaM Image Consulting and founder of the online style academy: Male Style School. I have a deep belief in the impact a person's physical appearance can have in transforming their personal and professional life for the better. For the past 6 years I’ve worked with thousands of men from around the world helping them with their personal style – and have been featured in places like VH1, ABC, NBC, Askmen.com and Men’s Fashion Magazine.

Gentlemen, every day we go through a routine that can either prime us to make a good impression or a bad one.
The challenge is, most people, even your friends and loved ones, don’t want to be rude and mention anything about the way you groom.
Yet, your outward appearance is significantly easier to improve and can have an immediate impact on the way others perceive you. Maintaining and executing a solid grooming regimen is part of the success equation.
What do I mean by grooming exactly? I break up grooming into these categories:
What’s great is that as a man, grooming and avoiding mistakes is pretty simple for many of us once we're in the routine.
However it is something you need to work through on your own if you want to avoid the “bro, how do you shave your ****?”
It’s a matter of making sure you’re covering the basics and taking advantage of some small ways to accentuate your looks. Cover these principles and you’ll be able to make a large impact on the way you look and feel.
I’ll also tell you a secret - if you implement even a few of these techniques, woman will notice. What seems like a small and silly change to you is “attention to detail” and shows you “have your shit together.”
Especially when you're meeting someone new, these small changes form a large part of the impression you make and the response you get.
In this Udemy course, I’m going to go through the fundamentals to develop some good grooming habits. I’ve put it together so you don’t have to spend countless hours researching online and yet still not really “get it”.
This all comes from my experience spending thousands of hours working directly with men with all types of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and being featured in place like ABC, VH1, NBC and Askmen.com.
This course is a way for me to work with more people, without charging thousands on image consulting. Have a question that’s really specific? Udemy allows me to answer your questions directly in the course.
Just read what some of my past students have had to say. Here are a few:
“Aaron Marino I need to put you on my payroll. Thanks to you...I was just promoted to VP of international sales. I was talking with my new boss and asked him how he decided between me and the other candidates, he said it was a tough choice but came down to me always looking polished and professional!” -Danny S.
“Manscaping isn’t something I feel comfortable talking to my buddies about over a beer and now I don’t have to...I have now implemented a solid grooming regimen, like you suggested, and my wife loves the new and better groomed me. Nice work and thank you.” -Jack P
“You have helped me see the light, and develop a look and style that not only looks great, but finally makes me feel great, too. I wish I would have found this five years ago!” -Joe B
Now it's time for you to learn about what a positive affect some simple changes in your grooming can have on your personal and professional life.
Look forward to seeing you in the course.
P.S. I’ve been doing image consulting for years, and seen almost every variation of grooming challenge. Whether you’re experiencing some hair loss, excessive perspiration, dark shadows under your eyes, bad breath or sensitive skin, I’ve included a set of 20 articles that point to the best practices for each of these challenges.

I was a little disappointed in regards to the amount of content, which was a little thin. Apparently there is 4 DVDs filled with content available somewhere, maybe the editors used the razor a little bit too frisky for this version of the course...
Basic information, you can find it all on google.
