Quick Takes On Each Of Our Products
A little info about our men's hairstyling products. We know choosing a hair product isn't easy, but hopefully with the above hair tool and our hair advice tips below and on the site you should have all the info you need to make a solid choice.
TIP: There's no right or wrong answer, you just have to choose the hair product that fits your hair needs most. Sometimes testing out a few products is all it takes to find the right one, or even cocktailing a couple of products together!
Generally, there are 3 key things to consider when choosing a hair product:
- Hairstyle - the hair style you desire (or have) and your hair length will really help determine what type of product you are looking for based on the below characteristics of shine and hold.
- Shine - Shine level tells you how much your hair will look shiny or glossy. On the other end, when we say matte, that means the product will absorb the light and therefore make your hair have zero shine.
- Hold - tells you the holding strength of the product. Some products will provide a super strong hold so your hair won't move at all, while others will provide a light hold for more flexibility.
You can see our hair charts here that explain visually each of our products shine and hold level.
Our Men's Hairstyling Products
SALT is our natural sea salt spray for men that will rock your hair world. If you've never used a salt spray, it is time to start and this is the one to grab. It's amazing! SALT sea salt spray adds instant thickness, volume, texture, and a light hold. SALT is generally used as a pre-styler, meaning you tag-team with any of our other styling aids first. You can use it solo of course too, and SALT is great for bed head. Trust us, SALT is a gamechanger.
Clay is a bit more versatile and creamier than most clays. It provides a strong hold with low shine that is typical of most clays. Clay adds incredible thickness and body and ours is lightweight too.
Paste is probably our most versatile product as it can honestly be used for any hair style. It provides incredible texture without being stiff, greasy, or flaky. It provides middle of the road hold and shine, but there's nothing average about this styling aid. It's a rockstar.
Cream is perfect for men who simply need a light hold and don't really want to look like they are using too much hair product. Our cream is great for eliminating frizz and flyaways without adding the greasiness or stiffness you will find in waxes or gels. Hair cream also helps with some light conditioning and is a good option for men with thinning or fine hair who don't like the weight of a pomade or gel.
Pomade is a true classic pomade that provides medium hold with a ton of shine and control. Generally, pomades are great if you want your hair in a neat, slick manner. If you're using a comb, there is a good chance you might want to try our pomade. Ours is water-soluable making it easy to wash out too. If you're looking to slick your hair over or back, want a wet or shiny, soft hair texture, grab Pomade!
Power Pomade is our Pomade on 'roids... takes everything that Pomade does to the next level. So, if you want some serious hold and shine with that same Pomade feel, don't fight the power, grab it.
GELous is our high hold and high shine gel superstar. Gel is one of the most common hair styling proudcts for men. If you're looking for the slick-backed look with high-shine, a gel is a great way to go.
FREEZE Hairspray is perfect for the finishing touches to any hairstyle to lock it in place all day long. You can use it solo or in tandem with any of our other men's hairstyling products. Just a few sprays of FREEZE an we like to say, set it and forget it. So true. FREEZE also adds a bit of texture, volume, and shine as well.
That's it. A lot of choices. We know. So, if you still have questions, feel free to reach out to us. Don't forget to check out our grooming and hair advice section which is filled with videos, tips, advice, and articles so you can achieve Bueno Hair!
