One of the most important assets of a man as far as his looks are concerned is his hair. Hairstyles, if done right, boost your overall look. They uplift your fashion quotient, giving you that debonair appeal, and a lot of head tilts and turns too. But solely getting the right cut is not enough; you need to maintain it and style it right for the right occasions to accentuate the look further. Here are seven beauty tips for men to enhance the appeal and the look of some of the best hairstyles:
1. Hair products :
This is one known to all. Products are a must haves for accentuating your hairstyle. But they do not exhibit versatility, i.e. one hair product does not cater to all looks. You need to use the right product for achieving the right kind of look. Paste and clays, for instance, are recommended for achieving the casual, messy look. Gels are the best for the slick hair look that you would want to sport for office or any other formal gathering. Use the paste, wax or clay in dry hair, else they clump the hair together. Work your fingers to achieve that combed yet messy look.
2. Less of shampoo :
Contrary to popular hair care tips, washing your hair daily does not do you any good in the looks department. Restrict it to once every two to three days. You are allowed to extend it further, as long as it doesn’t look too oily or greasy.
3. Giving the hair volume :
If you have thinning hair, giving it some volume adds substance to it which is achieved through the pompadour look. This look is often accompanied with a fade or a taper in the contemporary times, which makes it the highlight of your hairstyle. In order to add volume, use a blow dryer and a comb. Simultaneously combing up and drying your hair ensures that it stays up. Using a hair spray helps in maintaining its shape. Blow drying your hair upside down is another method to achieve the same, and a preferred one too.
4. Use two different stylers :
As mentioned before, do not bank on one product to give you all you desire. That is too much of an ask. Keep and use different products for the different looks that you wish to maintain. Having variety is always good.
5. Clean up around the edges :
Do not rely on your hairstylist as far as maintaining your looks are concerned. Even the best hairstyle for men requires maintenance from your end. Owning those small electric razors is a must. They help in keeping your hairstyle neat by cleaning up around the edges of your hairline, and also saves your money and time. This tip works for your beard as well.
6. Dry Shampoo :
A very popular product, it is quite handy to maintain your hair when you’re travelling, if you could not manage a quick hair shower due to your packed schedule, or if you’re lazy.
7. Combatting humidity :
The biggest enemy of hairstyles. Humidity causes frizziness which we all hate. Using an anti-humectant pomade and hair serum are some ways to fight the battle.
