A Review of Men’s Hair Styling Products

Men’s hair styling products are a fickle creature. The wrong product can make your hair look like crispy ramen noodles (we forgive you J.T.), or make your hair look lame and limp. So I allowed my hair to become a test subject and put four different products to the test.

It’s important to know what hair products will work best with your hair, and the style you are trying to accomplish. I prefer something in-between a modern pomp and a slicked back undercut, so I went with the products most likely to give me the desired results.

Men’s Summer Hair Trends

As a lady, I really only notice two hair options for dudes out there – long or short. I mean, I’m cool with it, I can appreciate long or short hair on a fellow, but it must feel a little limiting to them, right?

Barbering: What’s Old Is New Again

I have been witnessing something quite exciting in the barber community, recently. It’s apparent that men are searching for the traditional barber experience. No fluff. No frills. Just  great barbering skills.

For decades, even generations, the barber shop was where men went for that quality groomed look. Yet suddenly, somewhere between Woodstock and casual Friday, good grooming appeared to lose some of its luster, some of its hold on the male species.
