What it is:Pomade is skyrocketing in sales in the men’s hair world – and for good reason. Pomade is essentially you’re all-in-one, versatile, go-to hair styling product that will never go out of style, for any look. It gives medium-high hold and shine that works best on short-medium hairstyles. We’re loving Barberstation’s old school themed pomade – and they even make travel sizes so you can style on the go!
What it is: Beard Balm was designed to moisturize and tame your facial hair at the same time, giving a soft and maintained look. Not only does it moisturize your beard, but it also moisturizes the skin underneath as well. A must have in the facial hair game.
What it is: Cream provides the most natural look, and a little bit of cream goes a long way adding lustre and shine making your hair look full and healthy. This product is perfect for wavy, curly, and longer locks – best used as a grooming product on wet hair to eliminate frizz. Compared to stiff & heavy products, cream adds a light finish and texture to your flow!
What it is: Tonic Water is the answer to all your after-shave struggles. Use this stuff right after you shave, power through the tingly sensation, and you’ll be left with smooth skin, free from red bumps and nicks. How does it work? Tonic water closes your pores after you shave, making sure that no dirt or bacteria enters your pores afterwards which prevents breakouts and it also works to heal any shaving wounds or nicks that happened during your shave-sesh. All that, and the scent is killer.
What it is: Clay can be used in the same way as any other firm hold matte product. It’s used best for achieving messy hairdos with almost any type of hair. Clay can also work to add thickness to thin hair. A great way to define and texturize hair without adding any shine.
What it is: Moisturizing Shave Cream that allows you to get a close shave without nicking or irritating your skin. Best for normal-to-dry skin, this acts as a shaving cream and moisturizer in one tube. It’s 2018, time to step our skincare game up.
What it is: Wax is a versatile product that can help you achieve any look from bed-head to more controlled. It’s great for short to mid-length hair and provides non-greasy long-lasting style that can be touched up and reshaped throughout the day without getting your hands sticky.
What it is: Gel is best for thick hair or to attain most old-school looks. It’s primary function is to keep hair in place but it also acts to make hair look shiny. Opt for gel if you want a lasting look from morning to night because gel will deliver exactly that!
