How to Apply Hair Wax to Get A Slick Look

Are you one of the fortunate few whose hair stays exactly as you want it to? Do you never have hair out of place? If so, you don’t need hair wax. On the other hand, if you are like the vast majority of men around the world hair wax will do the work of taming your lock for you!


What Is Hair Wax?

Hair wax may be just the thing to tame that flyaway cowlick or hold that wave in place. You can use it to move your hair forward, backward, to the side, or to spike it. If applied correctly, you can even create the appearance of a fuller head of hair.

The great thing about using wax on hair is that you have almost limitless styling uses. Although most waxes don’t leave your hair stiff as gel does, there are some that leave your hair stiffer than others. Wax also adds a different luster from most any other kind of hair product on the market.

There are different types of hair wax. Some are dry for a matte-type look. You can find wax creams, volumizing gel-waxes, waxes for fine hair, waxes for thick hair, waxes for stiff hair, and more. There are even spray waxes available.


How to Apply Hair Wax

Hair wax is a great way to style your hair without making it overly stiff the way most gels do. Why don’t you want your spiked hair too stiff?

There is nothing worse than spending the evening getting your date into a romantic mood, then poking her in the eye with the points of the gel-enhanced mini samurai swords atop your head when you try to cuddle.

Although wax can add a lusty sheen, most guys don’t want the Severus Snape slicked-back hair look. If you glob excessive wax on, that is exactly what you will get.

Hair wax usually looks best when you use barely enough to keep your hair positioned just the way you want it. Put a little wax on the tips of your fingers, or on an applicator stick, and run it through your hair to shape bangs, spikes, waves, and curls.

In the case of wax, less is usually more. Unless you are planning to head outdoors during a category 5 hurricane, you only need a dab here and there, or lightly and evenly spread throughout your hair.

When applying hair wax, run the wax through your hair uniformly so you don’t end up with clumps. Blobs of wax positioned haphazardly about the head are neither attractive nor enticing.

If anything, either your date will be repulsed by what she sees, or laugh with her girlfriends about it the next day. One thing she will be sure not to do is to run her fingers through your hair—that is, of course, unless she has a wet wipe handy.

  3. What I do is apply a light coat of hairspray first, then use only a little bit of wax. Just enough to get it all through your hair and stlye it how you want. Then use hairspray on top of that. Keeps my hair the way I want it all day long. It also takes away any greasy look or feel from certain types of wax. Hope this helps you.

  4. I agree, a little bit of hairspray will hold your style when you use wax.
