The Ultimate Men’s Hair Products to Suit Your Style

Whether your hair is curly, straight, long, thick or just plain unmanageable, try these quick tips and products for smooth style.



If you have… Thick, straight hair

Try… A classic quiff

Using… Moulding clay

This retro look is well and truly in, often found these days with a modern shaved side parting for good measure. Get yourself a tub of moulding clay to slick back the top for a look with a matte finish that’ll stay in place for hours with a matte look.

Our pick: American Crew Molding Clay

If you have… Long hair

Try… A man bun

Using… Dry shampoo

If you’ve got a lengthy barnet, it’s not a good idea to wash it every day as shampoo removes your hair’s natural oils. To keep your style looking shiny and fresh, use dry shampoo between washes – and embrace the man bun.

Our pick: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

If you have… Short back and sides

Try… Backcombed hair

Using… Grooming cream

Short back and sides – backcombed – grooming cream

If you have got medium to long hair, you’ll want to lock it in place without gluing it to your scalp. Grooming cream is a great way to keep your hair healthy while still being able to style it. Dry it with a blower for added volume.

Our pick: Baxter of California Grooming Cream

If you have… Naturally curly/wavy hair

Try… The surfer look

Using… Sea salt spray

Don’t worry, guys can also use sea salt spray! Apply the mist to damp hair and the salt will absorb some of the greasiness and give you a nice shine.

Our pick: Sachajuan Ocean Mist

Ocean Mist

aed 125 Sachajuan

If you have… Thick, straight hair

Try… A combed side parting

Using… Water-based pomades

Those who use a comb to style their hair slicked back or in a side parting should opt for a water-based pomade, which is easier to wash out than oily products and allows your hair to be flexible enough to restyle throughout the day.
