Hair Styling Tips

Use a shampoo with quality ingredients.


Esquire Grooming’s “The Shampoo” is formulated with the proper balance of ingredients to cleanse your hair without removing essential oils from it. Usually shampooing once per day, or every-other-day will suffice. If your hair is very dirty or you use heavy styling products, you’ll want to lather, rinse and repeat.

Apply a proper hair conditioner.


Conditioning your hair after shampooing will help keep it manageable, and in most cases, help make it appear thicker. “The Conditioner” from Esquire Grooming rinses clean and will leave hair feeling and looking healthy. Allow the conditioner to remain in your hair for 2 minutes, then rinse it out completely and thoroughly. Limp hair usually occurs when a shampoo or conditioner is not rinsed well from the hair. For longer hair (3” or longer) use a conditioner every time you shampoo. For shorter hair, every other time is perfect.

Use a hair tonic when going two days between cleansing and conditioning.


A hair tonic, such as Pinaud Clubman’s “Eau De Portugal” will freshen-up your hair and scalp between cleansing cycles. Purchase Pinaud’s Hair Tonic at The Groom Room.

Use the correct styling product for the correct look you’re wanting to achieve.


Not all products are a one-size-fits-all-hairstyles kind of thing. Hair length, texture, density, and shape will determine what styling product is right for you. Consult with our stylists and barbers, and they’ll explain which styling products are perfect for you.

Use a hair gel when you shape your hair with a blow-dryer and brush.


Esquire Grooming’s “Firm Hold Gel” or “Textured Gel” will create a solid shape and hold when blow-drying your hair.

Don’t overdo it.

Hair_Product_ Amount

Applying too much grooming product or applying it incorrectly isn’t the
way to go. If you’re using a finishing product, apply a nickel-size amount, from the back of your hair toward the front. Finishing products such as waxes, pomades, clays, or pastes, should be applied to dry hair.

Buy a real comb... and use it.


Using a comb to push and shape your hair into place, has never gone out of style. A comb is THE tool if you want to wear a side-part, or if you want to wear it up and away from the face.

Apply a grooming spray (hairspray).


After you’ve styled your hair into shape, and you want it to remain that way, Esquire Grooming’s “Grooming Spray” will keep it there and still stay flexible. Their Grooming Spray also makes a fantastic blow-dry lotion (sprayed into damp hair before blow-drying it into shape).
