Expert-Approved Men’s Styling Tips
By Keune | April 16th, 2021
Men’s styling has significantly evolved in recent years. Embracing natural texture and various lengths, men take chances with their look while also learning how to style with tips from the experts effectively. Giving stylists and clients a little inspiration just in time for Father’s Day, we’re detailing a few of our favorite Keune-approved hair tips and product picks.
Understanding Hair Type
Before any haircut, the client should discuss their hair type and texture. If he usually wears his hair on the shorter side, it can be hard to know what their natural texture looks like and how it may behave. Understanding this allows the stylist and client to develop a plan for a brand new style — one that may even involve extra length!
Conditioner Is Key
While there is nothing wrong with a 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner option, using a specialized shampoo and conditioner allows for optimum results. Naturally, the shampoo cleanses while the conditioner conditions. These two separate functions are why it is essential to separate the two. Additionally, clients can customize their needs by doing so. For example, 1922 by J.M. Keune offers multiple options, such as Refreshing Shampoo + Essential Conditioner or Purifying Shampoo + Refreshing Conditioner.
If your client is opting to grow out their hair, be sure to explain the importance of incorporating a conditioner into their routine. This addition can aid in their styling and the overall health of their hair as it grows.
Detoxing Is Essential
From scalp health to style-ability, ensuring the scalp and hair are thoroughly cleansed positively enhances your look. Shorter hair tends to use creams, waxes, pomades, and gels to get their style to stay in place. If not properly cleaned, this can cause product build-up leading to dull strands and a congested scalp over time. Working 1922 by J.M. Keune Deep Cleansing Shampoo into any routine ensures excess oil, impurities, or product build-up. It washes these away to leave behind a healthy scalp and more vital, moisturized, thicker hair.
Work With Your Texture
As with any style — aim to work with texture, not against it. Natural texture is such a beautiful expression of a person’s character, and with the right cut, style, and the right products, anyone can make their’s shine. From learning to wield a blow-dryer to testing various products, expert advice is critical, and practice makes perfect. One of Keune’s favorite ways to harness individual texture is through styling products.
