Wax On, Wax Off
Wax is great for cars, surfboards… and hair! It gives your car a lustrous shine and provides grip and staying power on your surfboard. Styling wax for your hair is much the same, delivering shine and hold so that your hair looks good and stays in place.
But if you intend to apply wax to your hair as well as to your car or surfboard you should know that the application techniques are quite different…
How to apply styling wax
It’s super easy guys and a whole heap quicker than waxing the car or the board.
Simply rub a small amount of wax between your hands and apply to dry or slightly damp hair, styling with your fingers until you achieve the look you are after.
Also remember that with hair products less is definitely more, so don’t overdo it! Start by applying a very small amount– applying more if you need it is a lot easier than trying to remove the excess.
How to style men’s hair with wax
Men’s styling wax can be used to create definition as well as give shape, shine and hold to your hairstyle. The difference between various waxes is in the hold power – some deliver strong hold, others a light or medium hold – and the degree of shine.
Remember men’s styling wax generally doesn’t provide as much sheen or gloss as a pomade, nor as much hold as a gel. It won’t infuse as much moisture as a cream either. So if you aren’t an experienced style guru when it comes to your hair, wax is a great product to start with because it provides SOME shine and SOME hold without being too extreme.
What is the best styling wax for men
At Hairhouse Warehouse you will find men’s styling wax from several leading haircare brands along with pomades, gels, pastes, clays and creams. Finding the best wax is as simple as finding the one that provides the look you wish to achieve.
We recommend that you read the label on individual products to ascertain whether the product provides light or strong hold, and a matte, low-sheen or a glossy finish so you don’t have any unwanted surprises!
Dear Barber Fibre and Instant Rockstar Smooth Rock are good for long lasting hold and a sleek, glossy finish. For a light shine and a soft hold which allows a degree of natural movement, try V76 V Rated Natural Wax . Surfer dudes will love Nak Surf Wax but don’t get it mixed up with the surfboard variety of wax! Nak Surf Wax will give your hair a natural, beachy look, providing texture and medium hold along with a matte or low-sheen finish.
How to use styling wax
You can use men’s styling wax to create a classic, polished look for a formal occasion, an edgy, stylish look for a fun night out or even just to hold your casual, daily style in place while at work or out and about on weekends. Slick your hair back, lift it up at the roots or sweep it across and forward – styling wax gives you the control you need for different looks.
