As a kid, great hairstyles meant some water and a comb. But now that you’re a grownup man, proper hair styling requires a little more effort and grooming products. From getting the perfect hair cut to styling it every morning, men struggle to keep it slick. Here are seven hair styling products that will help you style your hair to perfection and tame your mane in style.
1. Hair Gel :
Buying hair gel is a very tricky task, and most men often fail terribly at it. Buying any gel off the rack is convenient, but it will leave your hair feeling cemented to your head! Pick a good quality, light gel that will provide maximum hold to your hair without coating the follicles like cement.

2. Hair Wax :
Hair wax should always be applied to towel dried hair for a medium hold and low shine. Easier to style on short hair, hair wax is used for making short spikes and back flips. However, men with slightly long hair can also use it for a dishevelled tousle look.

The easiest to use in the lot, hair spray is a winner for lazy guys. Just spray it over your hair as a finishing touch after setting it with wax or clay. Perfect for medium to slightly long hair, the spray will give your mane a shiny slick effect.
4. Hair Paste :
A very versatile grooming product for men’s hair, the paste has the consistency of a lotion. Apply it on wet or damp hair as it gives your hair a medium hold, allowing you to style it even when dry. Use it for an effortlessly cool messy, textured hairstyle.
