Hey men! Tired with your own, limp and lifeless hair? Want a fun hairstyle that gets you noticed and admired by the ladies? Learn how to texturize your hair with these easy steps.
Texturing is the layering of hair to provide a multidimensional look and feel. Flat hair is not cool. Think of messy/casual hair, but with enough control and hold that it isn’t flopping in your eyes and making you look like a shaggy sheep dog. Hair with texture means there’s some “grip” to it; it’s the perfect kind of hairstyle that gets the attention of women. Don’t you want to give women the excuse to play with your hair?
The permanent way to add texture to hair is with a perm. Or if that is too extreme for you, you can employ these semi-permanent tricks to give your hair some lift. You don’t need to be a stylist to give your hair texture.
Here’s how to texturize hair- the easy way.
- For quick way to create lots of texture, look for men’s styling products with the appealing names such as ”hair wax”, “texture putty” and “molding putty.” Don’t worry, these highly available in grocery stores and drug stores. These products have the consistency of goo and should be used sparingly to avoid giving yourself the dreaded helmet-hair look. Take a small dab on fingers, then run it through small chunks of hair, or use it to muss up hair. Use small amounts to add some interesting anti-gravity, hair lifting looks. Lucky for you, this putty rinses out with your next shower, so you can quickly get rid of undesired results and start all over again.
- If you have a wife, girlfriend or willing female friend who is handy with a razor, enlist her help in cutting your hair. Here’s how to texturize your hair with just a razor: have your accomplice twist sections of your hair (gently!) and come in with the razor to lift up. She can choose large chunks of hair or smaller chunks, wherever she likes all over your hair. The idea of twisting and cutting is to introduce variation in your hair, and with that will come texture. Be careful, though, this technique works better with dense, thick, curly hair.
- You might choose to go to professional salon to achieve the right textured hairstyle. One of the latest trends is to wear hair longer, with bangs, in longer layers that have lots of texture, especially at the perimeter of the hairline. The idea is to give it the “I just woke up but my hair looks cool” messy appearance. Your stylist may be the best expert in giving you advice on how to texturize your hair, especially if you’re not used to so much self-pampering.
For men who are worried about thinning hair, learning how to texurize hair can be a way to hide the thinning a bit. Special hair texturizers coat the cuticle and add some thickness to hair. Your hair is no longer fine but has some body.
