- 1). Spray your hair with heat protector when you get out of the shower.
- 2). Blow-dry your hair by holding the dryer 6 inches from your hair and putting it on medium heat. Start drying at the roots and work your hair down your hair. While wet hair is casual, it is also unprofessional. If you have dry or damaged hair, use a towel to dry your hair and then let it air-dry.
- 3). Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of hair-smoothing cream into your hand and work it through your hair from the roots to the tips. This will keep your hair from getting frizzy throughout the day.
- 4). Brush your hair out with a wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles. Part your hair on one side or the other with the comb. Middle parts are less professional and may make you look too young for your work environment.
- 5). Secure your hair into a low ponytail with a clip or ponytail holder. This look is casual and professional.
- 1). Towel-dry your hair when you get out of the shower. Most men have short-enough hair that they don't need to use a blow dryer, but do use one if your hair is on the longer side.
- 2). Squeeze a dime-sized amount of gel into your hand and work it through your hair with your fingers.
- 3). Use your fingers to shape your hair into the style you prefer. Avoid totally slicked-back looks, which are more formal. Try parting on one side and laying the hair flat. You can also make your hair spiky, if it is short enough.
