The right shampoo is important

According to, men need to consider their hair type before selecting the right shampoos. Guys with oily hair need shampoos that clarify, while guys with dry hair need emollient shampoos that add precious moisture.

There are tons of hot shampoo brands for guys at an array of price points. Popular brands that offer superb formulas include Aesop, Dove Men+ Care and American Crew.

Conditioner is worth the extra step

Oscar Blandi is a hairstylist to the stars and he believes that guys should condition after every shampoo. In his opinion, conditioner helps to keep hair looking good over the long term, so don’t skip this important step. For best results, stay away from two-in-one shampoo/conditioner products and focus on finding a conditioner that is an ideal match for your hair type. Das Boom Industries, Jack Black and Verb make effective conditioners for guys. A pro tip is to bring a comb into the shower with you and comb your preferred conditioner through your wet hair, just to make sure that it’s evenly distributed. Leave the conditioner on for a few minutes while you scrub your body. Then, rinse and go.

Get a superb cut and style it properly

When you’re sitting in the barber’s chair, or relaxing in a chic salon, be sure to ask your stylist for advice about the best haircut for you. Good stylists know that the shape of the client’s face, along with his hair type and personal styler, are factor which determine what will look the best. According to, hot styles of the moment include fades, tapers, faux hawks, quiffs and crops. The pretty boy buzz cut is also on everyone’s style radar.
