In this easy-to-follow guide, we’ll go over some quick and easy styles for men with fine hair, ensuring you’ll find a style that is right for you. With some in-depth and behind the scenes tips from ‘Arie Blades’ from ‘Hall of Fades Barbershop”, we’ll help you get those locks looking their best.
If you want these styles and you have fine hair, then this is how we recommend achieving the look.
A relaxed look
How to style: Start with towel-dried hair and apply a small amount of Matte Cream to the tips of your hair. Using your fingers, manipulate the hair in the general direction you want your hair to sit.
Barber Tip: Using a hair dryer on medium heat, blow your hair in the general direction you want it to go. This will set the hair in the direction you want, while giving it a completely natural look.
A look you can restyle all day
How to style: Apply a dime-sized amount of Styling Cream to fingers and work thoroughly into your palms. Apply to dry hair and distribute evenly across the hair, from root to tips. Create texture and volume by using your fingers to pull and scrunch different areas, paying particular attention to the hairs on the top of your head.
Barber Tip: To create added volume to your hair before applying product, use a hair dryer and direct the air flow up and back.
A classic look
How to style: Apply Shine Pomade into dry hair and use a comb to create a defined part and slick the hair back into place.
Barber Tip: For added shine, dampen your hands with water and work into hair after you’ve applied the Shine Pomade.
All day volume
How to style: Take a small amount of Thickening Paste and apply to wet hair. Using your fingers, create separation and texture by pulling hair upwards and/or scrunching the hair. Let hair to dry into shape.
Barber Tip: Once you have your finished look, lock into place by applying a small amount of the same product. The high hold with low shine, will give you a natural, full and textured look that lasts all day.
