Boys - we’ve got you covered. Covered in hair gel and foam that is. Face shapes vary, and everyone has a different one. Choosing a hairstyle that can complement your face shape can change your outlook on a day-to-day basis, providing confidence and personal expression. Hair styling products such as gels and hair foams can help you achieve new hairdos with a spritz or a squeeze. Don’t be limited by what you think your hair has to offer - mix it up with our collection of hair gel and hair foam for men.
The main difference between hair gel and foam is that where foam is used for volume and more temporary clump-free hold, gel applies a strong, long-lasting stiff hold. Hair mousses and foams contain oils and polymers that have a moisturising effect on the hair, so it appears shinier. Polymers stick to the hair strands which supplies volume and smoothing agents to control frizz.
Suitable for most hair types, hair foam is perfect for soft-hold volume. Those with short hair might be more suited to hair gel. A jelly-like texture, hair gel contains polymers and emulsifiers to maintain a long-lasting hold even in water. Hair gel hardens after application, so will only complement certain hairstyles, producing white fragments if disturbed in the hair by combing.
Hair gels for men are more suited to those with shorter hair as it has a stronger hold than hair foam. Adding hair gel to long hair can make it look stiff. Hair foam can also offer volume to thinning hair, especially those targeted at this issue - we recommend Paul Mitchell Anti-Thinning Root Lift Foam. The end result will vary according to the colour and texture of the hair, so feel free to experiment with different hair products to develop your own killer look. To help you on your hairstyle journey we’ve brought together products from hair care specialists such as L’Oreal Professionnel, Redken and Paul Mitchell.
