One of the great things about short hair is that it's so easy to style. You can throw on a hat or tie your hair up in a ponytail, and you're done. But sometimes, men want something different, like texture or volume. Texturizing products can be used on short hair to give it some extra oomph and make your look stand out—but they're not always easy to use correctly! If you don't get the application right, you could end up with an unruly mess of flyaway strands. So before you put any product near your scalp, take these steps for a nice textured haircut:
Start With A Clean Head Of Hair
If you have short hair and want to texturize it, the first step is to wash your hair thoroughly. It's best to use a shampoo designed specifically for men. Avoid using conditioner when washing your hair because it keeps it from drying properly and makes it more difficult for you to style later on.
After washing your head of short-cropped locks, dry off any excess water with a towel before applying any product or styling tools. This will prevent damage to your scalp and allow the rest of the styling process to go smoothly without tangles or snags getting in the way later on down the line!
After drying off with a towel (and combing through any tangles), use an electric hairdryer on medium heat until all moisture has been removed from each strand as well as possible—this may take some time depending on how much styling gel was used during this step so don't rush things too much here; when done correctly though this part should only take about 5 minutes.
Comb Through A Small Amount Of Styling Product
In this step, you'll apply a small amount of styling product to the hair. You can do so using your fingers or a comb/brush/blow-dryer. The key here is to work in small sections and not use too much styling product at once. If you start with too much product on your hands or comb, it won't be easy to distribute evenly throughout the hair.
Create Volume By Flipping Your Hair Up At The Roots
To create volume and height, use a round brush to flip hair up at the roots. If you're using a comb, hold it in one hand while you flip some strands up with your other hand. Gently pull your hands away from each other as you bring them close together so the hair flips up correctly. To keep all the pieces of hair in place, use a hairdryer without heat on low speed and direct it at them until they're dehydrated. Once that happens, remove any product buildup by running your fingers through it gently—don't force it! This will also help prevent future frizzing problems if you've got thick locks. Lastly (and most importantly), apply texturizing spray onto damp strands making sure all areas have been covered evenly before styling them again using either an elastic band or bobby pins if need be - follow this step closely because this is where all those lovely natural waves will come from :)
Practice Correct Product Application
When to use a product is as important as how you apply it. A product can't help you achieve the style you want if it isn't being used properly. The same goes for products that are supposed to give a particular effect, such as texture or hold—if you aren't using them correctly, they won't work. To get the most out of your products and to avoid wasting money on them, make sure that:
- You're only applying products where needed (for example, not putting styling cream in your hair just because it's on sale).
- You're applying products in small amounts, so nothing builds up too much on any one area of hair (this causes stiffness).
We hope this guide has helped you better understand how to texturize short men's hairstyles. Texturizing is a great way to add dimension and texture to your hair, but it's important not to overdo it!
