Not many guys are into the idea of being one of those guys who spend hours in the bathroom getting ready. Luckily, there are steps you can take that will get you looking great without tying up your schedule. A few tips:
Let your barber or hair stylist suggest cuts that suit the shape of your face and will work with your hair’s texture. Be honest about how much time you intend to spend daily doing your hair. Don’t let him give you a cut that requires fixing with gel or pomade if you aren’t going to use it.
Maintain the cut once you have it. A hair cut starts getting shapeless after about six weeks, sometimes less. Going for a trim every so often keeps it looking neat and polished.
Pick out the right shampoo for your hair. You don’t need fancy or expensive salon shampoos. A decent drug store brand should be fine. Most people can use shampoo for normal hair. If your hair is dry, pick up a moisturizing shampoo. However, this sort of shampoo will weigh your hair down if it is normal or oily. If you have oily hair, pick up a deep cleaning shampoo. Only use a dime-sized drop when you wash your hair.
Conditioner is necessary, too. Conditioner makes your hair smoother and less prone to frizzing or flyaways in dry weather. You can try a shampoo and conditioner combo, but many will weigh your hair down and make it look flat.
Don’t fear styling products. Gel helps your hair keep its shape and keeps it looking neat and clean. Pomade can add some texture to thin hair. When using these products, massage them between your hands before applying to hair.
Refresh your style every so often. Picking up a tube of gel to try out a new style doesn’t make you a metrosexual. Switching from a parted style to a no-part one or another change can feel refreshing and can take years off your face. Your Russian bride will love the effort you put into looking your best for her.
