Let me first start out by saying that everybody has a different hair type. In addition, anyone who reads this should also know that styling products work best when you’ve gotten the best haircut for your hair; it’s like the icing on the cake i.e. the dessert after a great dinner. Depending on the type of hair you have and your personality, you want to style your hair in a way that would best represent who you are as a person. Messy, sleek, professional, edgy, soft hold, strong hold, etc. the styles go on and on.
A personal preference of mine is to experiment with many different products to see what works well with my hair and what doesn’t. It would be very silly of me to try and tell someone what product would work best for them because everyone is unique in their own way so they need to find a product and way of styling their hair that would best bring out their personality. The product line we use in our salon, Bumble & Bumble, has and continues to have large success with our clients. They offer a wide range of products to from creams, pomades, wax, sprays, and mousse. Different products will give you a different look, which is why we recommend trying out many different types to see what works with your hair and what doesn’t. This article would become too long if I had to recommend a product for every persons situation! Rather, this is more of a general guide of understanding what you can be able to do with your hair to be able to achieve the best hairstyle for yourself.
It is also important to have a good understanding of the brand. A type of hair product, such as gel or a styling cream, will have different effects on your hair and create different looks, simply because their formulated differently. As the old saying goes, “Not all hair products are created equally.” (salon humor). Since I live in Boston, almost every other business is a hair salon (maybe that’s too far fetched!) and the line of products they carry say a lot about them. The best hair salons in Boston, or any other city, will use the best line of products. You may have to pay a few extra dollars for a great hair product, but its the same for a nice car or house.
That is about it for this article. The next part is to just go out there and experiment on your hair to find the best look for yourself. Stay tuned for other posts on best hairstyles, haircuts and colors and more!
