Applying hair spray to men’s hair
With the right hair spray from your favourite brand in hand, it’s time to get down to business and apply it correctly.
These simple steps will help you achieve the perfect hold and avoid any unwanted stiffness or stickiness:
- Prepare your hair by blow-drying it and styling it as desired with a small amount of water or product.
- Hold the hairspray bottle about 10-12 inches away from your head, this will ensure an even distribution without weighing down your hair.
- Spray the hairspray in a continuous motion, starting from the roots and working your way towards the ends of your hair. This will help lock in the style and give you a natural-looking hold.
- For extra hold, spray some hairspray onto your fingertips and gently run them through your hair to define any flyaways or add more texture.
- Let the hairspray dry completely before touching your hair to avoid any frizz or mess.
Our tips for using hair spray for men’s hair
- To avoid getting a stiff or unnatural look, always opt for a flexible hold formula and use it sparingly. You can always add more if needed.
- Don’t apply too much product in one go. Build up the hold gradually by spraying and waiting a few seconds before adding more.
- If your hair tends to get greasy easily, opt for a water-based or alcohol-free hairspray to avoid any build-up on your scalp.
- For a natural-looking hold that lasts all day, use a light mist of hairspray on your hairbrush and run it through your hair for an even distribution.
- Don’t forget to wash out the hairspray at the end of the day to avoid build-up and keep your scalp healthy.
