A GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS
In a world as diverse as today, the possibilities are endless. Especially when it comes to choosing what hair styling product to use. Cream, clay or pomade? I asked myself this question a lot when I started to style my hair, even to this day, I still get confused as to what each one does and why I should use them.
Scaramouche & Fandango have got you covered when it comes to hair. They have a selection of high quality styling products that will give you any style you could imagine. To get a different look, you need to turn to a specific product. Hopefully I can shed some light on the benefits of each type.
A cream hair product is probably one of the newest additions to the market. If you’re looking for an effortless look, a styling cream is the way to go. Generally, they tend to be lighter and help to tame those pesky little flyaways. They can either be used as a pre-styler or a finisher, but leave your hair looking like their isn’t any product in it. Styling creams work well with pretty much all hair types.
Top Tip: Finish your style with hairspray to hold it in place, whilst maintaining the effortless look.
A styling clay is perfect if you’re looking for a textured matte look. They’re great for the ‘fresh out of bed’ look and tend to be workable throughout the day. If you want a messy, tousled style, clay is the way to go. They tend to work better with curly or wavy hair, but would look good on straight styles too.
Top Tip: Warm the product in your hands first to ensure it covers the hair evenly. Start from the roots and move to the tips for more volume and texture.
The classic hair product! Pomade has been around for centuries, in one form or another. They have a waxy texture and come in both water-based and oil-based styles. The aim of pomade is to give you a wet look style, without the crunch and flakiness of a gel. Perfect if you’re looking for a sleek style.
Top Tip: Add pomade just before your hair is completely dry. It helps to hold the style in place and controls frizz.
