What’s the One Product Every Guy Should Own?

Every guy should own a good shampoo and conditioner, which will depend on your hair type. Your stylist can direct you to the right ones for you.

As for styling products, this also will depend on what your hair is like and the look you want to achieve.

If you have thick or medium hair, a pomade or a paste is a must-have. Depending on the look you want to create, a pomade or paste will control or maximize the hair you have, whether it’s extra thick or not so much. A little goes a long way. Sexy Hair Molding Paste and American Crew Pomade are two of our favorites.

Avoid using heavy products on thinner hair. It can make it appear weighed down. Mousse is a great product to create a little extra volume. We recommend Biolage Whipped Mousse.
