Let’s face it. Most men don’t like spending precious morning minutes in front of the mirror, trying to make their hair look satisfactory. That’s why many guys opt for simple buzz cuts or short undercuts. Whatever doesn’t take too much time to care for is usually in style. However, the more complicated the hairstyle is, the better it looks. And the longer hair is trendy this year. That’s why bold men decide to sacrifice some sleep time to make their hair look grand.
Thankfully, even the most complicated haircut can be styled in just a few minutes. All you need are the right tools, hair products, and patience. The more you practice, the faster you’ll become a hairstyling guru. Conquer even the best haircuts for boys in 2018 in a matter of minutes.
1. Wash It The Night Before
If you want to have your hairstyle ready in minutes in the morning, make sure to wash it on a regular basis. The more you style your hair, the more often you need to wash it. If the hair looks bad in the evening, don’t hesitate to take a shower. You’ll thank yourself in the morning.
2. Choose The Ideal Gel Portion
If you recently changed your hairstyle from short to long or vice versa, you may be confused about how much gel to use. Take some time in the evening to experiment. As soon as you know how much gel you need (nail size, pea size, etc.), you can save time on redoing the hairstyle in the morning.
3. Use The Right Products
Instead of trying to keep the styling products to a minimum, take some time to understand which one does which. If you are using the wrong products, it may take you forever to reach the desired results when styling your locks.
• Pomade – good for sleek looks and textured hairstyles.
• Gel – good for wet looks and strong holds.
• Wax – good for short hairstyles with shine and slight hold.
• Cream – good for eliminating frizz and conservative styling.
• Hairspray – good for keeping hair shape and reducing flyaways.
4. Melt Wax Before Using
Styling your hair with wax is easy if you don’t forget to melt it before using. Here are the simple steps:
• You need a piece of wax about half an inch in diameter
• You must melt the wax between your palms so it spreads quickly.
• Apply wax to your hair (it can either be wet, dry or damp. To make things quicker, apply it to dry locks).
• Always start applying wax from the back of your head.
• Switch hands as you apply the wax from back to front to make sure it spreads evenly.
• Close the hands when working the wax toward the hair ends.
5. Buy A Large Mirror And Arrange Good Lighting
Bright lights and a large mirror in your bathroom are the keys to creating an ideal hairstyle in minutes. If you don’t invest in these two tools, you may be disappointed with the way your hair looks when you check out your reflection in any other mirror.
6. Check Out New Styles
If the hairstyle you are making right now takes up too much of your time, there is no reason to stick to it. Look through the simplest yet elegant haircuts for men this year. Changing the hairstyle won’t just help you spend less time taking care of your hair. It can help improve your mood and even make you more successful in everyday life.
7. Shake Your Head
When you are trying to achieve an “out of the bed” look, running fingers with hair products through your locks “just the right way” may take too much time. After you apply the wax to your hair, shake your head vigorously. It can help you get the ideal look.
8. Try Hair Powder
In case by the end of the day you suffer from an oily look, which ruins your sleek hairstyle, try hair powder. Sprinkling some of it on your roots can help you avoid a greasy look throughout the day and reduce the time for touchups.
9. Tame Your Curls
Curly hair is usually the toughest to style and can cause you plenty of trouble in the morning. If you want your curls to look tamed and appealing, use hair cream. Apply a pea-sized amount to your locks (if they are short) and work it through from the roots to the tips. Then you can proceed with other styling manipulations.
Styling your hair is easier than you think. Besides, long locks are trendy this year. So if you’ve always wanted a long and complicated hairstyle, the time to experiment is now.
