Taming the frizzy mane

5 Best Styling Products for Men

You're not fully dressed until your hair is styled, but how exactly are you supposed to style your hair as a man?

If you want to look your best, towel drying and hoping for the best won't cut it, but you don't need to spend hours crafting the perfect look either. Using the right product for your hair is an easy way to make sure it looks awesome every single day.

Keep reading for details on some of the best styling products available for men.

1. Pomade

Pomade is a smooth, water-based product that's ideal for short and medium length hair. To use, simply scoop a small amount into your hand, and run through your hair. You'll achieve a medium hold without any of the stickiness or hardening of other products, and it will help your hair to shine, too. Pomade is easy to wash out and gentle on your hair.

2. Soft Wax

Want a medium hold without too much shine? Soft wax is a great choice. It's a little firmer than pomade, so it's ideal for creating slightly more structured styles. It won't create as much shine, leaving you with a matt, tousled look. Soft wax is ideal for shorter, messier styles and can be applied to wet or dry hair.

3. Gel

Need something that'll give you some serious hold? Gel is the perfect choice. Avoid cheap gels which will plaster your hair to your head, and go for higher-end products that provide excellent hold without compromising on shine. Apply gel to towel-dried hair for the best results, and use less than you think you need.

4. Cream

Hair cream is ideal if you're looking for a lighter option that works on medium and long hair. It applies smoothly, provides some light hold, and adds a little extra shine. It won't make your hair look drastically different, but it will remove any messy flyaways and help to smooth out tangles. Cream is perfect for keeping long hair looking neat and tidy.

5. Sea Salt Spray

Sea salt spray is a must-have for medium to long styles. Simply spray it in and enjoy looking like you're fresh off the beach. The salt works like a dry shampoo to absorb grease, and it adds a little extra shine. This is the ultimate choice for anyone who doesn't want to spend more than a few seconds on styling.
