Yes, guys really do care about what their hair looks like and these waxes, pomades, pastes and clays will help you achieve your best hairdo ever.
Say goodbye to that crunchy wet look that gel usually turns your hair into. And say goodbye to those white flakes when the gel dries out too! Today it’s all about workable hair wax and pomades in a variety of textures and packaging. Some men like a traditional wax stick, while others want more of that little circular container so you can scoop out a little product with your finger and rub it around in the palm of your hand to warm it up before adding to your hair. Either way, we love a wax-pomade mix because it’ll help you keep your hair styled and in place without weighing it down and turning into that 90’s helmet we’re all still trying to get over. Shop some of the best hair wax and pomade brands for men (so far) this year.
