GQ (Australia) - - THE GQ GROOM GUIDE - WORDS DAVID SMIEDT

TIDY

Sit­ting some­where be­tween a brush cut and con­ser­va­tive ’50s style, this is the ul­ti­mate low-main­te­nance op­tion. GO-TO PROD­UCTS: KMS Cal­i­for­nia ‘Moist Re­pair Sham­poo’, $28.95 (300ml); KMS Cal­i­for­nia ‘Silk Sheen Con­di­tioner’, $28.95 (250ml); Nak ‘In Shape Shap­ing Paste’, $24.95 (90g) TIP: When it comes to styling prod­ucts, a blob the size of a five-cent piece is all that’s re­quired for this hair length.

SLICK Mad Men

may be over but Don Draper’s style is peren­nial. The clas­sic short back and sides with a ra­zor­sharp side part will never let you down. GO-TO PROD­UCT: For the well-bal­anced blend of shine and hold ideal for this retro style, try Mitch ‘Bar­ber’s Clas­sic Mod­er­ate Hold/high Shine Po­made’, $29.90 (85g) TIP: Rub the prod­uct well be­tween your hands to en­sure even dis­tri­bu­tion.

MOD­ERN

Think Ivy League prep on hol­i­day – a bit more length to play with up top and sub­tle blend­ing to the sides and back. GO-TO PROD­UCT: Aveda Men ‘Pure-for­mance Liq­uid Po­made’, $39.95 (200ml) TIP: Con­trary to pop­u­lar belief, longer hair doesn’t au­to­mat­i­cally re­quire more prod­uct – a dol­lop the size of a 50c coin will pro­vide all the light­weight con­trol re­quired, with just a touch of shine.

RUGGED

With a bit of ex­tra length through the top, back and sides, the em­pha­sis here is on matte tex­ture and a swept-back fin­ish. GO-TO PROD­UCT: For a mod­ern style that looks well-groomed with­out be­ing too ‘done’, try Toni & Guy ‘Men Messy Salt Spray’, $15.99 (200ml) TIP: Ap­ply the prod­uct to damp hair from root to tip and blast for a minute with a hair dryer to set in place.
