Women change their hair hundreds of times throughout their lifetime, so men, why not do the same and experiment with different looks? Get rid of that old do' you've been sporting for years and try something different this winter, with American Crew.
Below, lead hairstylist for American Crew Australia, Phoenix Thomson, shows guys easy ways to update their locks.
Look 1 - Modern day comb over
1. For a smooth shape with a plenty of hold, prep the hair with American Crew Firm Hold Gel and allow to dry naturally
2. If you need it to dry faster, help it along with some heat and a small flat paddle brush
3. Brush the hair in the direction it moves naturally and use the blow drier at the front for an element of lift at the hairline
Look 2 - Rockabilly edge
1. For a shape that defies gravity, apply American Crew Firm Hold Gel liberally to damp hair
2. Using a dryer and your hands, lift the hair at the roots to get the height needed to re-create this shape
3. Then grab large amounts of hair in your hands and squeeze it as the dryer adds heat to cement the movement on the ends
4. Rub a small amount of American Crew Fiber into your hands and use this on the ends of the hair, for hold and a matte finish
Top tips from American Crew All Star Phoenix Thomson:
1. For a beachy finish on hair, run American Crew Light Hold Gel through damp hair, shake it out and allow to dry for a 'just out of the ocean' texture
2. If it's a groomed finish you want, put a 50 cent piece amount of gel onto damp hair. Comb your part in and dry for a smooth finish with a small paddle brush. It will give you a great foundation for your finishing product. American Crew Pomade is a favourite for high shine!
3. Drying in American Crew Superglue will give you a high hold, high shine wind-defying shape that will last all day. Always apply a small amount to wet hair and use your fingers or a small denman brush and use the hairdryer to lock in the height and form you want to create.
4. Always finish off with a dust of American Crew Boost Powder if you want to add more texture and definition
