Step 1

Freshen your scalp.

Keep hydrated in this sweltering heat with Suave Men 2-in-1 Ocean Charge Shampoo + Conditioner. Its menthol formula leaves a nice cooling sensation that not only feels refreshing, but also helps fight dandruff.

Step 2

Give hair some volume.

Use a small, rounded brush to brush your hair back while blowdrying it. This way, you start off with more volume. Your hair then becomes nice and fluffy—perfect for styling!

Step 3

Make those Korean waves.

Part your hair into left and right sections, with more strands on one side for an asymmetrical look. Take a small section of your hair, and roll it backward with your small rounded brush while blowdrying it. Create Korean waves by repeating this on all sections of your hair. 

#HairHack: apply styling putty on your hair to make the waves last longer. Try using Dove Men+Care Control Gel
