Upgrade Green: A Solid Coif

by Myron Mariano

Find the right hairstyle for you
I don’t remember the last time I wore a cap—not because I dislike headgear, but because I prefer styling my hair. There’s something about the act that I find essential to my daily routine, so much a part of the style statement that I aim to show. Oftentimes, I even feel naked stepping out without product on.
Now, you may not be as obsessive as me when it comes to how you do your ‘do, but you can’t deny the fact that at some point, you’re going to have to deal with that pile on your crown. Whether you have to do so on a daily basis or only when you dust off your Sunday suit, finding a hairstyle that suits you best is important.

Short
Hair that’s most suited for the corporate world benefits the most from a product that keeps your locks in place until you clock out at 5:00 p.m. Start with a small amount (and we mean small—you want hold but not stiffness) of gel on towel-dried hair, and use either a comb or your fingers to shape your desired style. Try Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock Ginseng Biotin Hair Gel ($9.95)

Medium
A modern, no-fuss pompadour suits hair of this length. Start with a quarter-size dollop of hair cream, such as Aveda’s Pure-formance Grooming Cream ($24). Rub this against your palms and work the product through the hair’s entire length. Slowly part most of your hair sideways to form the tousle.

Long
A relaxed, carefree style reminiscent of a beach town will look great on you. Twist a dime-sized amount of OGX’s Moroccan Surf Paste ($7.99) on your hair, and let it flow naturally.

For Off-Duty Days
During stay-in weekends, give your hair a break from the week’s stresses. DermOrganic’s Leave-In Treatment ($25) repairs, protects, and moisturizes with certified Argan oil of Morocco.
