When it comes to grooming their hair, men often feel they’ve got the short end of the stick. But there’s so much you can do with your style, simply by working with what you’ve got.
Terence the dynamic stylist and owner of Terenzo International Hairdressing Professionals shares his styling tips.
‘The trend at the moment is most definitely steered towards a more groomed vintage gentlemen’s cut that can work for most hair types and textures,’ Terence says. ‘Something that is easy to style which also compliments most wardrobes.’
If you’ve got…
Thinning and/or fine hair
Terence’s tip: ‘Often men would grow their hair longer thinking that it will look fuller. However, if you cut your hair in a shorter style it will definitely appear thicker and fuller. For thinning hair Redken has an amazing range called IntraForce. It is formulated with a targeted combination of zinc PCA, aminexil and arginine that works synergistically to help promote density and delay avoidable hair loss. Another great product for men with fine or thinning hair is Densify Texturising Shampoo by Redken.’
Long and thick hair
Terence’s tip: ‘Try a more textured style that has the flexibility to be scraped back and is more sophisticated or just texturised. It should be left to dry naturally for a more relaxed look. Apply Get Groomed by Redken for Men after shampooing – towel dry your hair and rub a coin-size of the product through your hair and style.
Terence’s tip: ‘We recommend a Brazilian Blowout. This treatment can control the curl and reduce frizziness. Once the treatment has been done, you will have to invest in the Brazilian Blowout Acai Hair Care products, developed for the unique purpose of extending the life of the treatment.’
Terence’s tip: ‘Invest in a MIzani Relaxer followed by a Brazilian Blowout a week later to ensure silky smooth hair that can be cut and styled in more of a variety of styles.’
Terence’s tip: ‘A shorter hairstyle will ensure for more UV exposure to the scalp that can help with dandruff prone hair. You should avoid tying hair up if you have a longer style. Scalp Relief from Redken helps to eliminate and combat dandruff and its symptoms while gently cleansing the hair – the scalp is clarified and relieved while hair is shiny, light and airy.’
Terence’s tip: ‘If your hair is excessively oily, the shorter the haircut the better. Use Scalp Relief – Oil Detox by Redken. Apply a dollop of the shampoo on dry hair and emulsify with very little water. This will help soak up the oil. Then shampoo again and style.’
