Summer 2018 Hairstyles
As we saw earlier this year during Fashion Week, the classic hairstyles are more prominent than ever. The following hairstyles provide a sense of low maintenance while simultaneously giving off a currently fashion forward look.
Tightly Curled Hair: This type of hair is somewhat limited in terms of the styling products in which can be used due to its close, coarse texture and its tendency to dry out. Your best option is to use a cream for styling purposes as well as incorporate oils to keep your hair nourished and healthy. Fig+Yarrow's Hair and Scalp Tonic ($34) is a fantastic choice for nourishing and conditioning as well as establishing vibrancy for any man who is looking to achieve this look.
Straight Hair: Patrick's M2 Matte Finish - Medium Hold ($60) will help you easily create on-trend hairstyles such as elegantly quaffed or classically handsome straight locks. This product is completely re-moldable so that one can touch-up their hairstyle all day (and, it smells great as well). It’s important to remember that straight hair can tend to appear as somewhat thin and flat, so it’s best to choose a product that adds some volume. Gels and pomades will offer many levels of hold strengths while providing hair with a wet finish, whereas hair putty, creams, wax and clay will give a cleaner, matte finish while also establishing the desired volume.
Curly Hair: With a high hold and low shine, American Crew Fiber ($18) is a sculpting pomade is ideal for molding thick or curly hair and establishes a matte finish that is excellent for fine or light-colored hair that can look greasy with high-sheen products. Along with providing a strong hold and a natural look, one can use this product throughout the day for touch-ups. If you are looking to step up your hair-game, this product gives you the best quality without having to break the bank.
Short Hair: While providing a flexible and medium hold, Oribe's Rough Luxury Molding Wax ($39) is a highly recognized product that acts as a necessity for men with short hair who want to achieve the healthiest look possible. Waxes provide a modern approach to pomades and are less thick in substance, which leads to easier application and touch-ups throughout the day.
