    Starts at probably about a 2 at the shortest, blending up to a 4, then at its longest around 5 inches. Looking forward to keeping the sides at those lengths, and having like 10 inches up top.

    My whole regime is pretty simple. I have longish hair (it falls in front of my eyes at times), and I go to the gym a lot, so I can't get away with not showering. But I only use cold water on my hair, and shampoo once every week or two. I like how full it looks, and when I let it go a little too long without a shower, I tend to get a lot of compliments.

    Thanks. Need to let my hair grow out some more, right now it's too long for any "short" styles and not long enough to do much else except throw in some wax and just let it fall.


    Check out some male model blogs for hair inspiration. Tumblr is good for this.

    Anyone here shampoo regularly? I shampoo everyday (humid country + hair products = unhealthy if not rinsed out) and recently switched to a sulfate-free, tea-tree based shampoo (giovanni triple treat).

    Kinda wierd that it doesn't lather, but my hair was more voluminous, stiffer (and also drier) the morning after.

    I used to use Nisim biofactor.

    Any recs?

    Hommeheaven is good.

    How do you like the Hairbond Distorter?
    Have you tried their other products and if so, how does it differ?

    Have both Moulder and Distorter liked them both.

    Both are similar, Distorter has less hold but a more natural matte dry finish. Moulder has a strong holder with a nice light natural shine.

    Moulder is better if you want a single product, but I like to mix and match. Distorter however is better for messier looks bc its more flexible.


    P.S. I should be buying Shaper soon:

    Strongest hold! Maybe should be awesome for slick-back styles.

    The thing with wax and clay is that it is stupid hard when working with it to get into hair and IME everything gets stuck to your hair if you do not wash your hair daily with shampoo.

    TBH I do like wax and clay, then something like B&B sumotech, and followed lastly by water soluble pomade. However, as I said, the former 2 are just really high maintenance and I feel like it thins and drys out my hair even more.

    Just got a hair cut, a bit drastic but I think it'll look real good once the sides grow out in a couple weeks.

    Yeah, it will look better in two weeks or so. Been there myself.

    I think it pretty much always looks better with a smoother fade starting lower on the sides, like Flame's haircut. That way, the upper width balances out the jawline and makes your face look slimmer. Still, it should be cut very short right around the ears.

    This doesn't apply to that slick comb back style Bows, Art and the asian model above has.
