Best Products for Men’s Fringe Hairstyles
If you’re working with a haircut that focuses on the fringe itself make sure you do the right styling moves. There’s no point spending money on a haircut and then ruining it with cheap hair-care products. So even though you may not want to spend a fortune on hair care, try to invest only in some key pieces, such as:
Hair Wax and Clay
Wax and clay will easily add hold and texture to your short hairstyle. These two are also an amazing solution even if you are working on long straight fringe which demands some volume & definition. However, never use too much product.
Thin or straight hair probably needs some lighter coating with wax, whereas coarse hair will need something a bit more matte in order to stay in place. You can rub this product through your fringe and wait for it to air-dry while browsing through your Instagram.
Hair Pomade and Lotion
Hair pomade and hair lotion can do wonders on less layered haircuts. These two products easily fight frizz while giving you a lighter amount of hold (great for thin haircuts). You can re-use the product on a daily basis since it is so thin & lightweight that it won’t make your hair super greasy.
