Hair Styling Products

Mousses, gels, and hair pomades or waxes can add volume and shine to your hair as well as keep it in place.

Remember that too much product can achieve undesirable results (helmet hair, anyone?) Alexandre Chouery, creative director at the Fekkai Greenwich Salon in Connecticut, says, "A little product goes a long way."

Chouery offers some additional product tips:

  • Mousse is best for fine or thin hair. Apply it to damp hair at the roots only.
  • A gel is best for medium to thick hair. Apply a gel from the back to the front and comb it through.
  • Apply pomade to the ends of hair -- never to the roots -- because it will weigh hair down.
