There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Not sure which hair product is right for you? Why not consider the following hair styling products for men and women:
Often used to describe hair care products that aren’t gel or fibre-based, you’ll love the feel of hair pomade. The styling pomade products in Sephora give hair a moldable texture, perfect for short styles. If you’re trying to be Don Draper, pomades are a good place to start. Pomades deliver unparalleled shine and luster (but you can find them in matte finishes, too), and allow for flexible, buildable styling with light-to-medium hold. Great for hair that’s naturally on the drier side, use pomade for slicked-back looks, quiffs and pompadours. How to use pomade? It’s best to start with a small dollop and add as required - simply run it through hair with your fingers and set the look you want. Choose a matte pomade if you’re hoping for a shine-free finish. Depending on how much shine and hold you want, you can apply pomade to dry or wet hair. Simply warm up a small amount of products between your palms, and work through hair—adding more if greater hold is needed.
Depending on your hair type and the look you hope to achieve, there are a variety of hair waxes to choose from in Sephora. From hair waxes for fine hair to products designed for afro hair, you’re sure to find something to meet your needs. Even if you have no idea how to apply hair wax, the simple instructions will equip you to achieve a look you’ll love. With more hold than a typical pomade and less of a ‘greasy’ feel, hair wax is ideal for more oily hair types. Wax products dry out after applied, locking your style and texture in place with medium-to-high hold, making them ideal for more expressive, highly textured styles like spiky hair. To apply, do the same as above with the pomade, but always apply to dry hair, not wet, and try not to overload your hair with product.
The absolute strongest hold comes from hair gel—we’re talking rock solid here. Where pomade and wax just won’t hold up, gel is your best option. Hair gel is your one-stop for perfectly-styled, soft hair. The weightful formula glides onto hair and dries in seconds for an effortless, tousled look. Lemon zest, black amber and coconut are some of the nourishing ingredients in the Sephora hair gels! Try lighter gels if you have finer hair, firmer holds for an iron grip on thick, unruly locks. To apply, rub a small (and we mean small) amount between fingers and run through damp hair. Remember, a little bit goes a long way. Despite it’s maximum holding powers, gel does wash out easily so you never have to go to bed with that crunchy feel.
Nourishing clay is the perfect product to keep hair in place without drying it out or clogging it with chemicals. Many of the Sephora hair clays are enriched with keratin and sunflower seed extract for a natural layer of UV protection to guard against dryness and colour-fading. Opt for a product with avocado extract to smooth and deep-condition the hair while styling it into place.
Hair Texture Paste
Suffer from thin hair? Many customers find that they notice grease build up faster and therefore require a product that battles excess oils and gives their hair a texture boost. Hair texture paste is the ultimate hair care product to achieve volumised, grease-free locks. Argan Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil replenish moisture for a healthy, thicker look.
Whatever you’re looking for—high-shine and flexible hold or hair that won’t budge an inch, rain or shine— Sephora has the best hair styling products for all hair types. Shop online for you best groomed self yet!
