Ok guys this one is for you! Your hair is important to us women. We love a confident man with a nice hairstyle, and I want to be sure you’re on the right path to achieving it. It’s time to learn how to work with what you got, and realize that just because you go gray or may start losing your hair, it doesn’t mean the world is over. A lot of times you actually become that much more sexy to women anyway.
Here’s an example of what NOT to do. I feel bad to do this, but I need to use someone as an example of a great guy with awful hair, Nicholas Cage…
He could be a great looking guy IF it weren’t for his terrible hair! I’m not too sure who is telling him it looks good, but it’s sad really. This is a great example of a man aging, losing his hair, the color turning gray, and not being able to accept it and work with it. His hair is obviously colored because it looks very harsh, and the style is all wrong. He has a receding hairline, and in these instances, men should accept that they are slowly losing their hair, and work with it. Anything that is too forced looks awful on a man. Often times when we go gray, the texture of our hair changes in a not-so-good way. The hair becomes very coarse and dry, and with Nicolas’s hair being so long, it looks so dried out and lifeless. If he wore his hair super short he would look so much better.
Many male celebs like Bruce Willis and Vin Diesel have gone super short or shaved and it’s so sexy!
Moral of this story, if you are losing your hair, try to accept it, and wear a shorter style that will not bring so much attention to your hairline and hair, or lack there of. In my opinion, most men shouldn’t worry about coloring their hair. It’s high maintenance, and often times looks fake. If you do decide to color it, be sure to see a professional so they can find your perfect color match.
On the flip side, a lot of guys are wearing their hair longer and rocking more of a Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey style.
As for products, you NEVER want to put too much product in long hair! No one likes shiny and stiff hair. My all time favorite hair product for long hair is Grooming Cream by Bumble and bumble. You can put it on while your hair is damp, and then add more if needed when it’s dry. It never gets too heavy or greasy. If you need a bit of a heavier product, say for thick and wavy hair, try Shaping Gel by Davines. If you have thick and curly hair and want to weigh it down a bit while still keeping it soft, Oleo-Relax Slim by Kerastase is for you. Start with a little product on damp hair, run it through with your fingers, and add more product if needed when it’s dry.
Then there’s the short, but not too short sexy haircut. It’s shorter in the back and sides, but gets a bit longer on top. Think Jude Law, Josh Duhamel, Adam Levine.
What I like about this haircut is the diversity. When you have a good haircut and a great product, you can pretty much achieve any sort of style. Fohawk, smooth, messy with texture, bangs forward, you can have it all! My favorite products for a shorter hairstyle is SumoTech by Bumble and bumble, and Kengo Feather by Shu Uemura. Both have a strong, but flexible hold and a matte finish. Most men should consider a hair product with a matte finish. When a product has a lot of shine, that can potentially make your hair look thinner by clumping it together and making your scalp greasy and shiny. If you have really thick hair, this doesn’t pertain to you. Another thing to remember is to put products ALL around your hair. Men sometimes forget they have hair in the back of their head. Rub your hair product in your hands, and disperse all over your head.
You’re welcome guys. Now go make me proud 😉
