5 Styling Products for Men with Long Hair

Any guy who manages to grow some decent long hair deserves some kudos. Not only does it take forever, but you also have to go through a couple of months of looking like a hobo before it gets to a ‘I just got off my surfboard, and I’m suited up to for a kick ass job’ length. Though most men can usually get away with using a comb, there’s sometimes a need to tame manes with a bit more than just water. Here are our recommendations for the top 5 styling products for men with long hair.

Nak – Surf Styler
A mate of mine has a sickeningly awesome head of hair and he always looks as though he’s been to the beach. Knowingly being from Melbourne he hasn’t touched the sea since summer, so upon enquiry I learned his secret: Nak – Surf Styler. This light texturizing spray is made for ease and a bit of volume too.  (WWW)


Kevin Murphy UN.DRESSED
UN.DRESSED by Kevin Murphy is a product that promises a lot, but also delivers. It defines wavy longer hair being perfect for curls and waves. When you hit it with a hair dryer it gives you plenty of volume and hold while still feeling soft enough for someone else to run their fingers through. (WWW)


Jack Black – Sleek Finish Texture Cream
The worst thing you can do to long hair is to slap it down with a rock hard gel. Unless the Lego or helmet look is what you’re in to, we’d recommend trying Jack Black – Sleek Finish Texture Cream. Giving you the sheen and texture you want as well as smoothing away frizz, this crème is soft and easy to use plus as it also conditions dry or coarse hair. (Price: $17.00 BUY)


Grant’s Golden Brand Pomade: Medium Blend
Grants Golden Brand Pomade: Medium Blend is slowly becoming a cult hair styling product (if such a thing exists). Grants is synonymous for helping create awesome Greaser and Rockabilly styles and the Medium blend with its more pliable formula means you can change your style throughout the day. Like the Fonz says “Aaaaeeeyyy!” (Price: $23.00 BUY)


Redken – Polish Up Pomade
There’s times when a man needs to be a gentleman e.g. a date, a job interview, a court appearance. It’s for those times and many others that a smart and sophisticated hair style can help complete a positive first impression. Redken Polish Up Pomade gives long hair a healthy shine without the weight and can take you from straight out of bed to a slick side part in no time. (WWW)
