There are those who spend hours in front of the mirror perfecting their hair, and there are those who brush through and go.
Whichever category you fall into, the key to a good hair day lies in the care and products you use.
Samantha Lloyd from Chaps & Co Barbershop in the Dubai Design District gives us a breakdown of the do’s and don’ts, as well as expert hair tips for men.
DO invest in products.
Wash your hair with good quality shampoo and conditioner. Paying that little bit extra for a quality shampoo will make a positive and lasting difference.
Use: The best male grooming products available at the moment would be the BBA (British Barbers Association), they are great for all hair types and work well against humidity and at the same time cleanses the scalp, ultimately leaving it easy to manage your products such as wax and gels.
DON’T use heat.
Hot water is a no, instead use warm cold or water as it is better for the hair and opens the cuticles to soak up the products.
DO add texture.
Another product we love to use at the barbershop is the texture dust. This creates amazing movement and volume for clients who want the look to last all day.
DON’T be afraid of colour.
More and more people are starting to take further pride in their appearance and want to look and make themselves feel confident. Hair colour is coming back slowly and positively as it covers up white hairs and allows you to feel young again.
