Hairstyle: The Forward Fringe

You’ll Need: Dove Men + Care Sculpting Paste, a blow dryer

This hairstyle is fly on thick hair, as the bangs are full and easy to style. However, if you have thin hair, no problem: Just add some texture with styling spray and use a blow dryer for volume. One easy tip to style your ’do is to blow dry your hair in the direction it grows. Rake Dove Men + Care Sculpting Paste through wet hair to create texture. Use your fingers to plump and heighten the roots.

Hairstyle: Curly and Wavy Layers

You’ll Need: Axe Natural Look: Softening Cream, a flat iron

On short, long or medium-length hair get a natural-looking curly or wavy hairstyle by raking Axe Natural Look: Softening Cream through wet hair. With this hairstyle, layers make the look. If you don’t already have a set of layers, ask your stylist or barber to create shorter layers at the crown of your head. Asian hair falls on the sleek and straight end of the spectrum, so don’t be afraid to whip out a flat iron. Yes… a flat iron. Many Asian men employ hairstyling tools to achieve the look they’re after. Bump the ends of the layers with the iron and use your fingers to muss it up.

Hairstyle: Pop-star spikes

You’ll Need: Axe Spiked-Up Look: Styling Putty

Channel those famous K-Pop stars with this hot and spiky hairstyle. On wet hair, blow-dry your hair forward or into the direction you prefer. Use a flat iron and pull the hair forward then upward for a messy, piecey yet cool finish. Work a styling product like Axe Spiked-Up Look: Styling Putty through your hair to keep your messy style in place. Ready to sign some autographs?

Hairstyle: Colored hair

You’ll Need: Dove Men + Care Fresh and Clean Fortifying Shampoo + Conditioner

Blonde or blue or maybe even pink? Whichever hue you choose, dyeing your hair is up to you and your mood. Many Asian men love to change the color of their hair quite often. But do know that on dark hair—which Asians have—the hair must almost always be bleached first to obtain the hair color you want. Give it some thought before making a drastic change. When you’re ready, make sure to keep your hair’s overall strength intact with a wash and care system like Dove Men + Care Fresh and Clean Fortifying 2 In 1 Shampoo + Conditioner.

Hairstyle: Long Layered Haircut

You’ll Need: Axe Signature Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade

To get that lived-in look on your long layered haircut, make sure the proportions are right. The tail should be piecey and flow against the back of your neck, but not look like a mullet (not that we don’t love a modern mullet!). And the crown should be short, while the layers that frame your hairline should be longer to create shape and dimension. To style, brush through your layers to get rid of any tangles and rake through some styling pomade like Axe Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade for a clean-cut look. Focus product on the roots of your hair for volume.
