Label.m Sculpting Pomade
You can’t go wrong with the brand that has been appointed as the official haircare sponsor at London Fashion Week for 15 years.
Label.m is a haircare line developed by Toni & Guy for professional hairdressers. Their water-based sculpting pomade provides a shine finish, suitable for those who are looking at creating hairstyles with a slight tinge of glint.
For those who are unaware, the word, ‘pomade’ is derived from the similar sounding word in French, ‘pommade’, also known as ointment. Pomade has a waxy and slippery texture. Unlike hair gel which is wet and sticky, pomade is more manageable and easier to wash off. They are either water or oil-based.
The product provides a firm hold, so you don’t have to worry about having to restyle your hair when you’re out and about. Be it the comb-back look or the neat and cuffed hairstyle, Label.m’s sculpting pomade is the product to create the hairdo you want.
Check out this video on how to use the product to style your hair.
Label.m Sculpting Pomade is available at Shopee.
Gatsby Moving Rubber – Spiky Edge
Who can forget the famous commercial with Takuya Kimura twirling his hair and spinning around in front of the camera? A perpetual favourite among men, this Japanese brand has been in the market for the longest time and still going strong.
For those who are looking at creating a mohawk or spiky look, Gatsby’s Moving Rubber Spiky Edge is the one for you. Providing the strongest hold out of the entire Moving Rubber series, Spiky Edge is suitable for men with short hair lengths.
All you need is to apply about a 20-cent coin size worth of wax on your hair, cross over your fingers and lift the hair from your roots to achieve the spiky look.
Pro-tip: It’s highly advisable not to use a comb to brush the hair wax out or let the hair wax sit in your hair for too many days. The best thing to do is to wash it off with water and shampoo when you reach home.
Gatsby Moving Rubber Spiky Edge is available at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies.
Uppercut Deluxe – Matte Clay
Clay might sound intimidating as it’s usually associated with the material used for floors tiles. These days, it’s also used in hair styling products and face masks too.
Hair styling products with clay formulation generally feels thick and stiff. To apply onto your hair, use a bit of friction between your fingertips to break the clay into smaller bits.
Uppercut Deluxe’s Matte Clay is suitable for any hair length to create the hairstyle you want. It provides a matte look, so you don’t need to worry about your hair looking like a wet shaggy dog.
Apply a small amount of product to the fringe area using your fingertips. Thereafter, spread the clay to the back of your head and also throughout your hair.
Uppercut Deluxe’s Matte Clay is available at The Panic Room.
Amby Hex Spiky Gel
Before pomade and clay were invented, gel was the go-to product for men. This styling product is suitable for those who prefer a wet look.
Easy to wash off and provides firm holding power, Amby Hex’s Spiky Gel allows you to create your perfect hairdo without having to worry that your mane looks too greasy.
Amby Hex’s Spiky Gel is available at selected supermarkets and pharmacies.
Schwarzkopf OSIS+ Session Extreme Hold Hairspray
Hair spray is generally recommended if you feel a tad bit worried about your hair being ruined when you’re outdoors. It provides that extra protection to the product you’ve applied onto your hair. It also comes in handy when you’re looking to create some volume for your hair.
Like the name suggests, Schwarzkopf’s OSIS+ hairspray provides an extremely lasting hold for your hair. Not only does it dry quickly upon spraying, it’s also non-sticky. Give this a spray about 30cm away from your hair after you’re done styling.
Schwarzkopf OSIS Session Extreme Hold Hairspray is available at all leading e-commerce sites.
There you have it, the best hair styling products you’d possibly need to create that wow look to impress the socks off people.
