Men's Hair Care: The Ultimate Guide To Styling Product

Are you the type of bloke who gets stumped looking at shelves stocked with hair styling products? You're not alone! Here's a rundown of the major men's hair styling players.

Wax And Paste

Creating sculpted hairstyles on shorter hair requires a little help from a pomade product like a wax or paste. So what's the difference? Wax has a slightly shinier finish and it's also malleable, meaning you can readjust your hairstyle throughout the day. On the other hand, paste has a matte finish and is slightly thicker, meaning it has a stronger hold. Give it a whirl by using the L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Deviation Paste

Gel

Back in the ol' days, gel was the main styling option for guys. Nowadays, gel still has a place in the grooming arena when paired with the right hairstyle. The main selling point of gel is that it gives ultra-firm hold, which makes it's perfect for highly structured styles or taming rebellious hair. Gel also has a high shine finish, which looks great with wet-look styled hair. Try L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Fix Max with a no-budge style.

Blow-Dry Cream

Guys with shoulder-length or longer hair will already be well accustomed to caring for their long locks and using a hair dryer. However the styling step that's often skipped in the process is using a blow dry cream. Applying a product like L'Oréal Professionnel Liss Unlimited Smoothing Cream to damp hair before blasting with a hair dryer protects it from heat damage and reduces frizz, which ultimately leaves it looking silky smooth.

Mousse

Not all mousses are created equal – there a variety of mousses out there designed to suit different hair types and styling needs. For instance, L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Volume Lift is a root-boosting mouse that's brilliant for adding oomph to fine or flat hair. On the other hand, a mousse like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Full Volume Extra Volume bring loads of body and a strong hold finish. The trick is to choose a mousse best suited to your particular styling needs.

Hairspray

When it comes to holding your hair 'do squarely in place, it doesn't get any simpler than a spritz of hairspray. A mist of a product like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Air Fix is great when you need your style to have extra hold. Just remember, hairspray should only be applied to dry hair.
