Get a Different Hair Style When You Want with a Hair Gel for Men

Men of today are as conscious as women when it comes to their overall appearance. Perhaps, you’ve seen several colleagues or acquaintance today who are sporting different hairstyles or who appear as fashion forward as their female counterparts. Keeping themselves prim and proper are not what men of today would rather maintain. In a society where looks say a lot about the person, any man would do anything that will make him to be more acceptable. Achieving great looks is a lot easier today, however. With the right product and adequate knowledge in the proper use of the product, anyone can make a total transformation of themselves without even having to be in the salon every single day. If you are one of those who would like to have a different hairstyle every now and then or would like to keep how your hair looks longer in the day, you can get a different hairstyle when you want with a hair gel for men.

Styling Gel for Men

Why Would You Need a Hair Gel?

This product is specially formulated to allow your hair to be styled as you would like it to. There are different types of hairstyling products and hair gels are one of those that are most widely used is the hair gel for men as they provide a better hold. This styling product gives a perfect hold for any type of hair and you will be amazed how you can keep your hairstyle, even if it is quite windy, when you have some of any good quality styling gel for men applied on your hair.

It is made to be of translucent color and usually thinner in consistency than other hair styling products, such as pomades or waxes. However, they can also be considered “lightweight” or “heavyweight” depending on its hold. Unlike these products, however, gels harden on the hair and leaves a stiff yet shiny, wet look. Since it is alcohol-free, you won’t have to worry of having flakes once the product dries off on your hair after some time. Hair gels are also easier to wash out. If you have thin or thinning hair, a lightweight gel will work best for you. On the other hand, a heavyweight formulation will be necessary for those with thick or curly/wavy hair.

When it comes to projecting a great image, it is not just about the clothes and shoes that you wear, nor the look on your face. Your total appeal will also depend on whether your hair complements your face or not. It is interesting to note how a simple change in your hairstyle will make a lot of difference to your overall appearance. Just think of how you feel when you got out of the salon or the barber shop. Does not the experience give a boost to your confidence? (more…)

“Collision of Contradiction”: Mixing Materials

If there are two things I live for in a line, it’s texture and detail (accent on the “e”). Givenchy’s Fall 2012 couture collection gives us just that. From the intricately hand embroidered floor-length cape to the sheared mink dress and cashmere skirts. You know Riccardo Tisci wasn’t playing any games when he designed the halter neck gown, complete with a built in cape, embroidered with sequin both on the outside and inside (Realness!).  Heavily influenced, by a very earthy, native, and even gypsy vibe, this line makes brown the new black. The embroidery detail are like leaves sprinkled across the abundance of mother earth, or in this case, mother material. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Where am I ever going to wear a dress/cape lined with sequin or a fringed leather cape embellished with tracery?” (I say wear it anywhere, but I digress.) More importantly, this fall couture line is about mixing materials, playing with texture, and really using the plethora of materials that the fall permits (everything from fur to leather to cashmere to sequin to chiffon to cotton). Adding a touch of glamour, mixing materials serves up an evil side order of grandeur. So as you bundle up, mix it up!  Get into the line below!

If I just had to choose, and I mean had to, this would be my favorite! Just tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor.

Chronicles of a Closet Raider: Mom Edition

Ever feel like your closest is giving you an ole tired heard-it-all-before tease? Well before you go out and buy new clothes, consider my secret addiction—closet raiding. The beauty of having a big family is the more closets you can raid (there are six of us!). I’ll raid everyone’s closet from my 5’2’’ sister to my 6’2’’ brother (If you’re reading this, well, surprise! You’re clothes may be in my room as we speak lol). Anyway, closet raiding is a great way to both mold the styles of others into your own unique style and give you a fresh perspective on our own closet. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen a shirt in my brother’s closet that reminded me of a similar item in my own closet; just knowing how he wears it inspires me to explore different ways I can wear it. Once, I turned a baggy denim button down one of my brothers gave me a while back (that was almost collecting dust in my closet, might I add) into a sort of wrapped mid-drift top that also wrapped around my belt loops like suspenders; but I’ll save that story for another day. Yesterday, I was raiding my mom’s closet for headgear and found this snatching black church hat! (It worked out perfectly because my hair was not prepared for the world at the moment.) I coupled the hat with a black flared leg jumper with a deep-v back that I found on one of my thrifting adventures. I accessorized it with a vintage gold medallion stretch belt, a gold arm bracelet, vintage crystal earrings, a crystal wrapped ring, and electric blue Aldo heels. I normally don’t do all black, I actually lean more towards brown, but I enjoyed the look. Get into it below! It features my older sister. (Yep, she’s older than me lol.) She has such a youthful soul.
