Styling your hair takes time and skill, which is why most of us go with a quick brush-your-fingers-through-your-hair routine instead. However, styled-up hair is worth getting right for special occasions at least (and won’t hurt on the dance floor or at a board meeting either). Whether you’re just trying to tame your hair, or if you’re going all-out with a Mohawk or David Beckham-inspired quiff, using the right hair styling product will simplify the process and help your hard work last for longer.
Here, our recommendations:
Protect your hair from heat damage by spritzing on a heat protector spray like TRESemmé Heat Defense Styling Spray, R65, before using a hairdryer or electric styling tool.
Keep your spikes/ Mohawk/ cow-lick in place with a good quality hair gel such as Revlon Flex Flexi Gentle Hold Styling Gel, R26.95.
Sculpt your style to perfection with a good quality sculpting product. We recommend Davines Mat Forming Ground for Wizards, R259.
Get rid of unwanted fluffiness (from freshly washed hair or your pillow) with VO5 Extreme Style RoughItUp Putty, R42, and enjoy hold and texture all day long!
Want the ultimate long-lasting hold? Then you need a strong hair wax to keep your creation in place. Try Tigi BedHead Hard To Get, R141, for the best in hair wax.
