Finding the Right Hair Product That Works with Your Hair

Here at 1924 Fine Men’s Salon, we want to help you find the hairstyle that’s just perfect for you. This doesn’t just include giving you a fashionable haircut here at our Barrington men’s hair styling barbershop, but also recommending which hair products to use to keep your hair looking great on a daily basis. If you haven’t already been familiarized with hair products, you may be overwhelmed at the number of options that you have to choose from. No need to worry though! We’ll be glad to go over some of the main types of hair products and give you a quick rundown as to when each one is most helpful. 

Hair Gels

If you want to hold your hair down and create a wet look, using a gel would be your best option. Since they come in different types, they’re effective at holding down either fine or thick hair. Additionally, they can be used on both dry and wet hair.


By using hairspray, you’ll add more volume to your hair as well as have more control over it. It’s vital for keeping an unruly hairstyle in place, but just make sure not to overuse it; it can end up weighing your hair down.


Pomades are used to give a shiny and wet look to your hair. If you have a short, sleek, or texturized hairstyle, a pomade may be for you. Unfortunately, they may not be as suitable for those who have fine hair.

Hair Creams

If you have frizzy or flyaway hair, you may want to try using creams. They’ll keep your hair down and it won’t even look like you have any product in your hair at all. It’s best for those who want to stay discreet about their product usage.


Muds will give a person the most control possible over their hair. It can give texture to short, disheveled styles and it can give separation to longer styles as well.
