For a lot of guys, a short cut is a license to do what basically consists of nothing with their hair, especially if curls are involved. This is because leaving it to its own devices tends to be a lot easier than wrestling with a fine-tooth comb and a whole host of different products. But, if you can get enough hold from one product, you can do something with it.

It's all about asserting a little control over the hair to give it a more polished finish for something like a job interview, a formal occasion... or anything where you're not necessarily going to get away with the whole scruffy thing.

Your hair, your way

All you really have to do is use a small amount of gum to add some definition to the natural wave and smooth down any rogue tufts.

Step one: Start by warming a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands.

Step two: Run it through the top of your hair then apply a little more to the sides and back of your hair and smooth them down firmly.

Step three: Use your fingers to shape the hair on top, adding more gum if needed.
