Whether you have short hair, bangs or a pixie cut – there is always one hair product that will enhance your haircut. Keep reading for the ultimate cheat sheet to help you find the best styling product for your haircut.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A SHORT HAIRCUT:
Pure Artist Pick: Volumizing Hair Mousse
“It’s all about proportion when it comes to short hair,” explains Pureology artist Michelle Patton. “Short cuts can easily start to look wide on the bottom, so you want to balance that out with some height at the root.” The easiest way to get that height? A volumizing mousse such as Style + Protect On The Rise Root-Lifting Mousse. Massage a quarter-size dollop of the hair mousse into your roots (on damp hair, before blow-drying) to add lift and fullness to your short hair.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A MEDIUM HAIRCUT:
Pure Artist Pick: Beach Waves Spray
You’ll want some texture to create visual interest and prevent the overall style from looking too boxy or heavy, especially if your medium length hair is blunt, notes Patton. Her pick: Style + Protect Beach Waves Sugar Spray, a beach waves spray created with sugar cane which works well on wet or dry hair. “It adds fullness and breaks up the cut a bit,” she says.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A PIXIE CUT:
Pure Artist Pick: Texturizing Hair Paste
Today’s modern take on the classic style is all about texture and piece-ness, making the single best styling product for a pixie a texturizing hair paste, Patton tells us. Unlike many other formulas that can tend to veer towards dry, crunchy, or sticky (no, thank you) the Style + Protect Mess It Up Texture Paste is made with shea butter to both moisturize and smooth frizz. With a medium hold, it will keep your style in place, yet is still flexible enough to be brushable and workable.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR BANGS:
Pure Artist Pick: Oil-Absorbing Dry Shampoo
If you have a haircut with bangs, sure, you could wash and restyle them daily, but who has time for that? Instead, Patton suggests keeping an oil-absorbing dry shampoo at the ready such as Style + Protect Refresh & Go Dry Shampoo. Mist it on the underside of the bangs—the part that touches your skin—then lightly work through with your fingertips.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A BOB HAIRCUT:
Pure Artist Pick: Smoothing Hair Serum
Enter the Style + Protect Shine Bright Taming Serum, a unique hair cream to serum formula that fights frizz and adds mega-watt shine for a sleek and smooth style. “Rub a dime-size amount between your palms to emulsify it, then work it through your hair, starting at the ends, and stopping about two inches away from the root,” advises Patton.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A LAYERED HAIRCUT:
Pure Artist Pick: : Texturizing Spray
Enhance and play-up long layers with the Style + Protect Wind-Tossed Texture Finishing Spray Spray, a dry texturizing spray which Patton says also adds a little bit of hold and control. Spritz liberally through clean, dry hair, then work it through with your fingertips for a tousled texture that will make your layers stand out.
BEST STYLING PRODUCT FOR A CURLY HAIRCUT:
Pure Artist Pick: Beach Waves Spray
A beach waves spray may not be the go-to choice for curly hair, but Patton says it’s a great styling product for curly hair to revive ringlets: “It’s a great second day refresher because it reactivates the curl just enough, while also taming flyaways,” she explains. Spray two pumps of the Style + Protect Beach Waves Sugar Spray on each side of your hair, then hit with a diffuser for a minute for smooth and fresh curls.
