What Hair Styling Products Should Men Use?

Hold, shine, sleek, volume or texture – whatever look you’re wanting to achieve our range of Wahl hair styling products can create them all.


Purpose: Style & Mould

Puttee, similar to a wax, is thick, which is good if you want to shape your hair. It will add a bit of bulk, thickening your hair up and provide it body and lift at the roots. It also adds a subtle shine for healthy looking hair!

Our Men’s hair puttee is easy to build into a strong and controlled but flexible finish, so if you like to move your hair around, or want to be able to comb yours through, puttee is ideal hair styling product for you!

Putty works well on all hair lengths and types of hair, however, performs best on shorter hairstyles that are fine to add texture without as much shine as wax.

Which Hair Styling Product? - Puttee


Purpose: Define & Texture

Hair Klay is a dryer and stiffer texture when compared to a regular hair wax and that is what gives the product its hold and matte finish. Is also enables you to create structure or messy shapes with hair.

For men with thinner hair, clay can add more volume, especially when applied to damp hair before blow-drying. Klay is more specialized towards those who want an extreme amount of volume with a more matte and textured finish. It is ideal for those who want more body and to enhance the appearance of thicker looking head of hair.

Klay is ideal for anyone with short to medium length hair who needs a lot of hold but doesn’t want any shine. It’s great for creating messy looks that will stay in place throughout the day.

Which Hair Styling Product? - Klay


Purpose: Sculpt & Maximum Hold

Gumma creates long-lasting and extreme hold for longer and thicker hair types.

Hair gum is extremely versatile and ideal for creating and sculpting any style. You can texturise, separate or smooth and it is also ideal for scrunching into curls.

This hair styling product enables you to manipulate your hair in any direction creating yan extreme style which leaves a matt finish without the stickiness.

Gumma works great on longer length hairstyles to sculpt and shape with no shine. Gum works great on thick hair since less product is needed to shape and hold the style.

Purpose: Texture & Body

Hair Fibre is one of the most workable hair styling products. It offers flexible hold for remoulding individual textured shapes.

Its thick, dried out wax texture may come off in small chunks and for that reason it can’t be combed through your hair. To relax the product, work into the palms of your hands and then run it through your hair.

You can achieve the “bedhead” look thanks to its texturising capabilities and matte finish. Fibre is best used for spiking or texture, not so much the sleek, wet look other styling products create.

Men with short to medium length hairstyles who want to add natural-looking texture with no shine should use fibre. It works particularly well on thick hair.

Styling Product Usage Tips:

  1. Don’t use too much. Start with a small amount of product and add more as you go. To ensure the products is usable, rub it between your palms or fingers to warm it up. This will allow it to spread through the hair easier.
  2. Carefully rake it through all your hair. Take your time and use your fingers to ensure the product is evenly distributed through the hair to avoid clumps of product.
  3. Experiment with different products. Test and trial different products and figure out what works best with your hair. After all, its just a product and washes out!
