What is more important - haircut or styling?
All without exception, men's hairstyles that you see in movies or in photos, are the results not so much a fashionable haircut, as stacking. In this case, the main secret of the correct male styling is that it is completely invisible, and the hairstyle looks as natural as possible.
However, if a bad haircut can be hidden by styling, dirty hair and excessive amount of gel on the hair will spoil the work of the best hairdresser. Do not skimp on the styling products and use professional lines, not the cheapest gel with the effect of wet hair from the supermarket.
The most fashionable men's haircut
Undercut( undercut) is based on the classic male haircut, popular at the beginning of the last century and during the Second World War. Characterized by long hair on the parietal region and a noticeable border with short and cut under the machine hair on the sides and at the back of the head.
The main advantage of this haircut is that, depending on the styling, it allows you to create both the most serious and business image, as well as creative and pointedly sloppy. The very laying of the undercard is not difficult, because short hair on the sides and back of the head does not introduce disorder.
How to style your hair: advice to men
After the usual washing of the head and drying the hair with a towel, all male haircuts for short and medium hair look almost identical. Only lifting hair with a hair dryer and accurately applying the right styling product can give the men's hair style volume and structure.
- Use a hairdryer to lift hair. Styling always begins with the drying of hair with a hair dryer - this is what gives the hair volume and direction. It is necessary not just to drive the flow of air through the hair, but to set the direction for the hair with this air. It is better to use a hairdryer with a nozzle, reinforcing and directing the flow.
- Remember the "two-touch" rule. Put a little styling agent on the palm, carefully rub on both hands. With one right hand movement, apply gel on the right side of the head, then with one motion of the left hand - on the left side. Rinse the remnants of the product with your hands and do not give in to the temptation to spread the entire product on your hair.
- Give your hair a shape. Create a hairstyle with dry and clean hands - set the direction of the hair and slightly twist the strands to create a negligent effect. This stage is the most difficult. Only regular practice and testing of various styling products will allow you to achieve a good result.
- Fix the form with a varnish. Attempting to fix the styling with a large amount of gel will give the hair an untidy sebaceous look and cause them to lie down under the weight of the styling product. The only way to fix soft hair is to use a small amount of lacquer or hair spray.
- Wash your hair before going to bed. Every evening, gel and hair wax( just like any other styling products) should be washed thoroughly. The main reason is that during sleep, part of the product comes first on the pillow, and then the face - it contaminates the skin, provoking the formation of acne.
Which hair gel to choose?
The appearance of the hairstyle largely depends on the choice of stowage. The mousse will give volume, the gel will create the impression of damp hair, the wax and paste will be shaped, and the lacquer will fix it. It is impossible to determine in advance whether a particular product is suitable for you - it should always be tried.
Experiment with different products and their effect on your hair. Do not be discouraged if you bought an unsuitable gel and do not try to use it until the end, because "it's expensive."Try different types of products for styling and choose one that is convenient for you.
How to use hair gel?
The step of applying the stowage is the most difficult, so the first time you will really have to practice. If the result does not suit you, rinse the product, dry your hair, and then try to shape them again. It's not as difficult as it seems at first.
It's important to learn how to make a hairstyle with just a few movements. The more gel or other styling agent you put on your hair, the more you pollute them, and the less naturally it looks. Only the elaboration of individual strands after the creation of the main volume is allowed.
The main rule of fashionable men's haircuts is styling using the right and suitable products. The best haircut for experimenting with styling and with its image is the undercard - a combination of long hair on top of the head and shaved under the machine sides and the back of the head.
