Choose a suitable style.

The key to easy maintenance? It all starts in the barber chair. If you know you’re not going to be a frequent visitor to the barbershop, ask your barber to give you a cut that requires less maintenance. This usually involves a longer cut, as it’s less obvious when it grows out. Use this to your advantage and play around with the style using gels and waxes.
