Find a great barber and stick with him.
Getting the right Barber can be difficult but when you do, follow them anywhere they go. Building a relationship with your Barber will be one of the best things that you can do for your hair. Not only will they get to know the idiosyncrasies of your hair from cows licks and growth patterns to thinning on top but they will get to know you personally.
It will matter to them what you do for a job, what you like to do in your spare time, who you love and what makes you happy. All of these things help when getting the right hairstyle to suit your face, your job and your life.
Get the right styling product for your hair
A great hair styling product can mean the difference between an ‘ok’ hairstyle and a ‘bloody excellent’ hairstyle. Whether you like to use a casual matte moulding clay, a slick water-based pomade or and everyday use styling cream.
Do some of research. Read product reviews. Ask your mates. Be ok with spending more than $20, a good sized product should last for up to 50 applications.
- Handy tip: For pete’s sake, if you don’t like it, don’t buy it again.
Don’t over wash it but keep it clean.
So, I know that might sound like a bit of an oxymoron but we are serious. Over washing your hair strips the natural oils from the hair follicles, which tells the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Then you will want to wash it more and the vicious cycle begins.
So, as a man, how many times a week should you shampoo your hair?
We recommend shampooing 2-3 times a week. Use a high quality Shampoo with the least amount of nasties. Stay away from shampoos that contain detergents, sulphates and alcohol which will all dry your hair out.
- Handy tip: It really helps if you use a water-based or water dispersible Hair Styling product that doesn’t require shampoo to remove it. So on the days that you aren’t washing your hair, you can just jump in the shower, rinse through with water and you’re done.
Keep it fresh and tidy
Most of us get a haircut every 3-5 weeks, depending on what we do for a living. A great way to keep your haircut fresh throughout the month is to pop in to your Barber and get a quick tidy up around the back and sides. If you have a strong and consistent relationship with them, they will probably suggest this as an option and be happy to provide this service at a lesser charge than a full haircut.
