As the snow begins to melt, the spring season brings crisp air and a fresh new array of hairstyles for men. It’s time to shed the hard-head, slicked-back style you’ve been sporting all winter and focus on achieving a more relaxed look. From a natural tousle to a texturized finish, learn how to easily craft the latest looks of the spring season.
Better Bed Head: Now, relaxed hair does not mean bed head. Getting a stylized, yet shaggy look requires the right product to tame your hair while still giving it a natural feel. 18.21, Clay offers a unique hybrid of wax and clay that gives your hair a matte finish and high hold. This combo thickens hair, absorbs oil, and amplifies texture. The styling clay is a triple threat as it works to create an undone, yet natural finish. It can even be applied to second day hair for added lift and texture— your ultimate fix when you’re in a no-shower kind of rush. And the best part? The Clay features a unique aromatic experience of sweet tobacco, which is easily the most lust-worthy scent of the spring season.
Rise and Shine: If you’re looking to sharpen your hair game with some sleek definition, then try using Paste. 18.21 uses a pliable molding compound with a satin finish and medium hold; it gives you all the hold of the clay but also incorporates shine for a more sophisticated look. This whipped, water soluble formula provides fullness, flexible molding, and lightweight moisture. Paste amplifies texture and takes your hair from “boring” to bold with body. It’s also easy to use— simply use a small amount of paste and distribute throughout your hair (wet or dry) with your fingers. For extra volume, apply evenly to wet hair and use a blow dryer to perfect your style. This quick styling tip will amp-up your spring style and take your hair to a whole new height. And, of course, it features 18.21’s signature sweet tobacco scent.
Spring Spice: Can’t get enough of the sweet tobacco? Lucky you, 18.21 offers an entire bottle of the intoxicating scent. The Sweet Tobacco Spirits embodies a nostalgic, yet modern essence that is sure to turn the heads of any dame— yours or your friends’. It features notes of citrus, spicy saffron, seer vanilla, fine wine, and powdery musk. Better than any spring shower or floral bloom, the ladies will definitely be fighting over you and not the bouquet.
No more boring hair that’s hidden under beanies and baseball caps. 18.21 Man Made will make you look good and smell even sweeter. Spring isn’t just for the ladies anymore, it’s for the ladies’ man.
