How I Do My Hair This Summer
Hair and grooming is an important part of men’s style. While you can’t or don’t really want to wear heels to emphasize your height, or wear makeup to contour your face, grooming becomes an essential and only way to make your face stand out. Thanks to my ethnicity and genes, my brother and I barely get any hair on our faces, not to mention beards. As a result, hair becomes my main focus in styling as it’s the only way to elongate my face a little and make me slightly taller.
Today, I am introducing a hair wax called Slush Fund by Bill Jealousy, one I bought at my barber for $16 dollars. It’s a decent price for a little can of wax that can last for around 5 months for someone like me who does his hair often.
Applying is easy! I usually blow dry my hair to part 1/3 of the volume to my left while parting the rest to my right. I try to blow dry all my hair backwards, suave!
Next, the secret comes (or maybe not). I comb through the hair with my wet hands, making it just slightly damp but not too wet. I make sure I wet the sides and the back end as well. This way, you get to distribute the wax more evenly later and have the wet look as if you are using gel. The reason I prefer wax over gel is that it doesn’t make your hair as hard, so that you can still style it throughout the day. Wax also gives your hair a duller surface that you won’t look like you are ready to work on wall street.
Lastly, I wet my hands again and take a dub of wax to rub on the center of my palm. Make sure that you rub thoroughly or else chunks of wax will not dry on your hair. I distribute it evenly on my hair and on the sides while trying not to make it too wet so that it doesn’t get soaked and flat.
Lastly, I highly recommend this hair wax for its flexibility with water and its duration throughout the day. I tested it under strong wind and heat in the past few days and it has held my hair on the same look until late at night. It’s texture is between a shiny gel and a dull wax, giving you all you might be looking for – a natural, stylish and non-sticky look.
