Hey, grooms and brooms! Trying to figure out what to do with your hair on your wedding day? We’re here to help.

Whether you want hold or flexibility, something cost efficient or a bit of a splurge, we have the product for you.



Much more foamy than any of its other counter parts, mousse will wrap around your hair and add a ton of thickness. Not quite as stiff as gel, but not quite as pliable as wax.

Use on: thinner or finer hair.

Best for: adding shine and volume (without the sticky mess)

Our Favorites:

Vitalis Maximum Hold Mousse, $2.20

Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler, $12.29

L’Oreal Paris Vive for Men Thickening & Grooming Foam, $15.99



Once you gel your hair, it will not move. If you know the style you want, gel will get you there. You won’t have to touch your hair the rest of the day. Even in a hurricane.

Use on: stubborn or disobedient hair.

Best for: very styled looks, all-day hold and high shine.

Our Favorites:

Suave Professionals Firm Hold Styling Gel, $2.88

Tigi Bedhead for Men Powerplay Gel, $10.51

Zirh International Hold Sculpting Gel, $17.99



A soft, creamy, non-greasy hair product. It’s great for adding texture and hold without making the hair look too greasy.

Use on: thick and curly hair (but works on all hair types)

Best for: achieving a messy look or natural look

Our Favorites:

American Crew Pomade, $10.79

(Malin+Goetz) Hair Pomade, $20

Geo. F. Trumper Hair Pomade, $28.95



Though not as soft as pomade, it’s a new and excellent men’s product. Wax is the king of versatility; it can hold pretty well, but can be infinitely reworked throughout the day.

Use on: straight and slightly wavy hair (wax clumps in curly hair)

Best for: everything from the bed-headed look to a structured, coiffed style

Our Favorites:

Redken for Men Maneuver Working Wax, $11.50

MEN-Ü Grooming Wax, $14.99

Bumble and Bumble Sumowax, $27
