There will always come a time where men have to clean after themselves; get rid of their unkempt rugged look and go for a clean suave appearance. Events, such as formal social gatherings, are the best times where they can exert a little bit of effort in grooming themselves. Just as it is important for them to exert effort in picking their formal clothing during formal events, same goes in exerting effort in grooming themselves; especially their hairstyle.
The hair also makes the man look good; and not the clothes only. A well styled hair paired with a dashing outfit would make a man really good-looking. Whether your hair is short or medium-length, there is always a hairstyle that suits you and your outfit.
One of the easiest hairstyle you can do, if you have short hair, is just making it smooth and slick. Men that have cropped cuts can generally pull this style off. All you have to do is apply a little bit of gel on your hair and gently brush the sides down and back. A slightly lift at the front part of your hair gives it a more rugged look. You’ll definitely look posh if you wear this hairstyle with tuxedo suits.
However, if you’re not a big fan of using too much hair products, then embrace the natural appearance without having your hair looking messy. So, to achieve this “natural” look all day, use a small amount of light mousse before brushing your locks in place. This way, your hair would look neat without much given effort.
On the other hand, if you have medium-length hair and you want to style it to have a tidier look on your important event, then you can either sweep it back or part it at the side. If you opt on sweeping your hair back, you’ll be portraying a more rugged exterior; while if you part your hair at the side, you’ll look more refined. However, if you have a large forehead, then avoid styling your hair at the side for it will further enhance the largeness of your forehead.
Styling your hair swept back is a bit time consuming. You need a good styling cream, paddle brush, hairspray and a blow-dryer to achieve a rugged look. All you have to do is brush the styling cream through your hair and then blow-dry on high heat while lifting your hair from the roots to the back using a paddle brush. Finish the style by spraying your hair with a good hairspray to give it a stronger hold and blasting it quickly with a cold blow-dryer.
Lastly, if you really want to look slick and classic in your formal event, then try parting your hair at the side. This kind of hairstyle goes well with any dressy events or important business meetings. This hairstyle is easy to pull off if you have the right hair products – fine or medium-toothed comb and pomade. Start by pouring a small amount of pomade through your hair. Afterwards sharply part your hair using the pick end of your comb. Finish it off by slicking your hair down and slightly create a lift in the front, adding volume.
