- Hair is something that a lot of men don’t put a lot of thought into, but just keep with what they’ve always had
- Instead of that, you should be purposeful about what you decide to do with your hair
- Take time to experiment, find stylists who know what they’re doing, and try different things!
- Look at pictures of men that are wearing their hair the way you want to, and model them. Having an end-goal helps a lot
- If your hair is thinning, you probably want to at least consider shaving your head. Thinning hair is one of the weakest signals you can send
- If you’re trying something radically different, spend time around people you don’t know as well, and you’ll probably find that they don’t think it’s extreme
- Experiment with a lot of different products to find what you want. Focus on hold and shine
- Hold is more important for longer hair, where they want it to do something specific
- Shine tends to give your hair more of a formal look, no-shine is more natural
Don’t just do what you’ve always done with your hair. Take time to experiment and try new hairstyles, and while you experiment, have an end goal in mind.
