Styling made easy

1/ Build texture

If you find that your hair becomes stubbornly flat every now and then, try adding some texture to help revive it. Tousling your hair for added movement will stop it from seeming magnetized to your scalp thus elevating your whole style.

What to do: Apply pomade to dry or damp hair then muss it like you've never mussed anything before. Shape with your hands, then twist and tousle individual pieces to add more texture.

2/ Use your blowdryer

Though you may only reach for your dryer when it's really cold out, it can actually make a world of difference when creating quiffs and pomps. The heat works with your product of choice to set your style, lifting the hair at the root and giving it longer-lasting hold.

What to do: Apply some wax to damp hair, then dry it while lifting the hair on top with a comb.
