Hair Styling for Wavy Hair
Wavy hair is a seriously underrated hair type for men. Built in body is worth its weight in gold, especially when your goal is to become the next McDreamy. At 18|8 in Redmond, we see plenty of men who would kill to have a little more to work with on top, so count your blessings and embrace the wave. It is neither hard nor time consuming, but it does take a little practice. Follow these basics for styling wavy hair and you’ll be off to a great start.
Don’t Be Afraid of Layers
Layers are essential to managing a wavy hairstyle. Yes, length can help keep the poof in line, but when your hair grows out and up, layers mean the difference between looking tailored and looking homeless. Go for a point cut with a few inches of layers. It can help give you some great texture and remove the excess poof.
Condition Like Your Life Depends on It
One of the main things men tend to ignore in their hair care routine is their stylist’s pleas to moisturize. Conditioner is the key, and a cheap supermarket brand probably isn’t going to give you the same results as salon-quality products. If you want to get complete control of your wavy locks, splurge a little on yourself and get the good conditioner. Your stylist can help point you in the right direction.
Get the Right Tools
One of the most helpful things you can do for your hair is to buy the right tools. Opting forthe bristle brush your mother’s best friend’s kid used to brush her cat in the late 90s may be the frugal choice, but it will do nothing but add to your frizzy, wild mane. Take the time to listen and learn about the tools the stylist at your mens salon use when styling your hair, and what you can do to incorporate them into your routine each day.
Your hair care routine should never be a burden, so it is important to find what works for you. At Redmond 18|8, we are always ready and willing to help you find the perfect style. Trust the professionals and you won’t be sorry.
