How to Style: Hair

4fa921bcc41a810ebaede0b7cd389b15Want this look? Not too sure which product to use? Do you have thick hair or thin Hair?

This look can be achieved with slight waved or straight hair.  Use two fingertips with of wax or hair paste to achieve this dry, messy style. Place the paste/wax on the palm of your hand and warm it up creating heat to easily apply. Then work through dry hair from ends to roots. Make sure you have enough in you hair but not too much that it starts clumping.  Use your hands to apply to your hair to style, do not use a comb, and place as desired, rubbing palms back and forth on hair.

Inspired Style: David James Gandy



Meet the Male Model who has been seen as the face of Dolce and Gabbana and has a last name that rhymes with Dandy. This gentleman’s name is David James Gandy. He is a favorite role model of ours. This United Kingdom native, not only has style and swag as a dapper gentleman but a man with morals and values that exudes. The ladies take one look and go crazy. At his interview with Vogue UK tells us,” He also wants to promote great dressing for men that, he says, “shouldn’t be difficult”. “Men are still quite scared of the connotations of looking gay, even in 2010,” he says. “But dressing well can be easy. You don’t have to buy a suit from the most expensive labels – you can pick one up from Zara or Marks & Spencer and for an extra £20 or £30 you could have it tailored to fit you perfectly – and nothing really looks better than a tailored suit. And because we’re limited to jeans, T-shirts and suits, it’s important to be confident with accessories to look good.”

He is a favorite to many. Check out more of him here: David James Gandy

We stopped by the Pomades headquarters and had a great time viewing all the different hair care products they carry. Pomades imports new and unique brands from all over the world. We had a great time sitting down and asking the creative genius some questions.

Where is Pomades Located?

Orange County, CA

When did you start this brand? launched in mid-2002

When did you realize you wanted to do this?

I checked Facebook one day and one of my friends said something like, “Anyone know where I can copy some pomade?” and a light went off that there aren’t too many options that are quick and easy.

What are some of your favorite brands?

It’s hard to choose because we carry a lot of brands, but one of our first was Geo F Trumper Blue Hair Pomade.

Where can readers buy your product?

They can view and purchase our products on Also check out and

What do you believe makes a quality Pomade?

It’s about what it does for you. It’s got to make you look good, smell good and feel good.

What advice do you have for Pomade users?

Experiment with different hairstyles and pomades. You may currently like one style or pomade, but we recommend giving some other ones a try. Also, mixing them into a little cocktail also works so if you like the hold of one, and the scent of another – throw them together!

Where can readers find out more about you and your work?

You can visit us at or stop by our office in Costa Mesa, CA. We’ll be happy to meet you and pass along some pomade samples.
