Hair on Sleek


Hair products for men have become a bit more confusing since the Brylcreeme days. So what products work for you? Thicker hair and messy hairstyles can handle pomades and waxes. For thinner hair, lighter and dryer products work best, like clay, texture sprays, and powders. 

R+CO
Wall St. Strong Hold Gel
($29 / 5 oz)

Take it to the street. This super shine gel gives your hair strong, long-lasting hold, no matter if you’re slicking it back like Gekko or pomping it up like Elvis.

Oribe
Star Glow Styling Wax
($42 / 2.5 oz)

This unique gel-wax formula allows you to create a texture that shines. Slick back your hair, add glossy smoothness to waves, or charm flyaways with (non-greasy) brilliance and medium hold.

Tousled Texture


For finer haired gents, try these products to boost volume and density! Dry shampoos aren’t just for the ladies anymore. Sprays are easy to use and keep your hands tidy. 

Shu Uemura
Clay Definer
($42 / 2.45 oz)

This is a pomade that defines, adds texture, and leaves hair silky with a matte finish. It’s perfect for multiple styles: molding unexpected looks or creating a more controlled, smooth finish.

R+CO
Death Valley Dry Shampoo
($35 / 6.3 oz)

This is the quickest way to add texture and volume. Think of it as an all-in-one dry shampoo and buildable hair texturizer spray. Try layering it on top of a texturizing paste for maximum volume. 

Wise
Dopp Kit Bundle
($165)

The environment-friendly brand Wise gives you all-natural personal care to keep you and our environment clean! Using 80% less plastic, the reusable refillable containers combine with masculine sleek designs, making this a wise choice.

Looking Sharp


When form and function are key, these sleek tools will get you on your way to looking your best, in style. If clever design and maximum results are what you’re after, these are your new must-haves. 

 

Dyson
Supersonic Hair Dryer
($499.99)

The Supersonic is a new kind of hairdryer that incorporates fast-drying technology. Regulated by an intelligent microprocessor, this hair dryer delivers precise, high-velocity airflow while preventing heat damage and protecting your natural shine.

Gillette
Fusion Pro Shield Razor
($29.99)

This is the best a man can get, now in a matte black with a chrome sleek design. Elevate your shaving experience while keeping your bathroom design on point. The box includes a razor, razor stand, and one five-blade cartridge. 

 

Smooth Operator


Dr. Dennis Gross’ iconic renewing peel with a two-minute treatment time and no recovery time is a safe, at-home alternative to peels. It powerfully and gently rejuvenates while controlling acid levels, keeping the skin balanced, smooth, and radiant.

Alpha Beta
Universal Daily Peel
($110 / 35 treatments) at Sephora

This is a pomade that defines, adds texture, and leaves hair silky with a matte finish. It’s perfect for multiple styles: molding unexpected looks or creating a more controlled, smooth finish.

Neck & Décolletage
