Straight Hair styling (16)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-30 03:13 ID:LtG7aXG8

I want to straighten my hair and try something like a jrock look. What would I need? My hair is right now sort of wavy, so I was thinking, flat iron, and hair wax? What is the best flat iron and wax to use? Plus, should I consider rebonding?

Thanks

Personally I use a hair straightener and also horse mane shampoo. Not sure about the brand of the iron because but im pretty sure it reads black and decker. As for the wax the brand is called Shellac wax you can find it as most craft stores. BTW OP why the jrock look? J-jazz is starting be the in thing in Japan now.

I keep my hair short for that same reason. Also, it looks a lot neater, so girls will see me as taking pride in my appearance. At the moment I don't just shave it all over i have short back and sides and kinda longer spiky on top, seems to work well for me. Also, if I just shave my own head it never looks as good as if you have a barber do it because they can trime the sides a bit shorter and get a good razored outline behind your ears etc.

"Flat iron" and "guy" in the same sentence screams metro. My suggestion is to choose a low maintenance hairstyle. ie: One that naturally suits you. J-rock can look hot, but most of the time guys go overboard with the hair-defying-gravity thing. Keep in mind that too much product in a guy's hair is not an attractive look.

The majority of times....neat > messy.

one of those conair straighteners, not sure what they're called, but they're red and dry as well as straighten. 40 bucks, but worth it, not really for the drying mechanism, but the straightening mechanism is a dream. my hair is thick as heck, and it straightens it in ten minutes or less.

as for the jrock look, lots of hairspray. point it up and run your fingers thorough your hair upwards as you're doing it. After the spray is completely dry, blowdry it upwards.

On the topic of hair; being partly Arab, I have really thick, and kind of curly hair.

Except it's not really naturally curly, it just grows and bends in all directions. I've tried a lot of things, and pretty much given up on having it straight, but how do I make it stay shiny and remove the shit-ton of stray hairs?

I have a sort of mini-afro now, but I don't really like the way it looks.

I'd like to have somewhat like one of these:

But I have no idea how to get it 'neat' and collected enough for the first one, or nice and shiny for the second one, without stray hairs.

It sort of looks like this now:

Except shorter, blacker and a little bit more afro-ish.

You think short hair makes it seem like you take more pride in your appearance, but what it really does is to show off that you are too lazy to maintain long hair.

On the other hand there are other reasons not to maintain long hair. Like $200 visits to the hairdresser. Although that's because I'm bleaching it...

Personally, I've never had any luck with wax, except to get a clumpy, messy look. If you want J-rock spikes, I suggest soft-spiking over hard spiking. Basically, after straightening your hair, you moisten it again and massage a tiny bit of hair cement over the roots of your hair. Although I say "tiny bit", you'll need to apply some to the roots of all the hair you wish to spike, so you'll end up using a bit. At this point, you should be able to shake your head and have volume everywhere. If your hair is short enough (3-4") this should be enough to spike it completely. If it's longer, you'll need to tease it up using a comb and hairspray. For some reason, the effectiveness of the hair cement can be improved by sleeping on your hair... It's more poofy the next morning.

I should use hair cement? I read somewhere about something being popular called "movable rubber" or something like that.. I was wondering if anybody had any experience with it. I am also thinking of growing my hair longer and having it down, I'll try and find a picture which is sort of what I like.

Not OP, but I have a similar question. My hair has always been longer than most guys and right now I'm contemplating what to do with it. I may let it go a few more inches so I have room to work with. The question I have is should I go to a stylist and have them do something with it, rather than just a typical hair cutting place? Most of the time I can get away without even having to do either since long hair isn't much work. I'm clueless.

I wonder how much a stylist would cost
