It might be easy to forget that Pixie Salon carries men’s products. Yes, we do men’s hair! That’s why we want to take some time to highlight great products and services for men.
We do offer men’s haircuts, using both scissors and/or clippers. These haircuts can range from thirty to forty-five minutes depending on the client’s hair and desired look.
So, after you get your haircut, how soon should you book your next appointment? Well, hair grows about 1/2 inch a month. Therefore, with shorter hair cuts, it’s a good plan to be in the salon every 4 weeks to maintain the style.
If there is a solid shape with a longer men’s cut, the grow out is more manageable and could be anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Going longer in between cuts doesn’t mean you don’t have to do some grooming. This is when taking advantage of our neck trimming service comes into play.
We know that beards became a trend during quarantine. With nowhere to go, why not try growing out that beard? At Pixie, we’d love to help style that facial hair for a more refined and clean look. We’ll trim down the sideburns, angle to the back of the ear, and curve it to fit the adam’s apple.
Much like a bang trim for our ladies, beard trims become a complimentary service for returning clients between visits. Some of our clients come in every two weeks to clean up the neck area and trim their beard.
Hair Color and Gray Blending
Getting your hair colored isn’t just for the ladies! For managing grays, a color service is ideal to keep the hair blended, stylish, and healthy. Using blending techniques with Wella’s semi-permanent hair color keeps that solid shoe polish look at bay! Gray blending is a good way to not have a solid regrowth line and achieves a more natural growout.
This is your basic men’s haircut that is neat and tidy around the ears, hairline, and neck with a side part and enough length to be styled with a tonic or pomade when desired. The basic layer lays nicely with or without product.
Low fades are actually quite versatile because they can be tailored to suit your desired look. It’s a cut that is understated yet stylish. It’s a quick and easy look to style. The fade allows it to grow in naturally.
This haircut is for those who want an eye-catching look. A disconnected undercut has shaved sides with a longer length on the top. To style the longer hair on top, the Reuzel Hair Tonic is one of the best options. The tonic cleanses the hair without completely stripping the hair of its natural oil. It allows the hair to be restyled without piling on more pomade.
A disconnected undercut is a cut that is complimented by a strong beard. If you decide to sport a beard with this cut, you can come in for the complimentary beard trims at Pixie to keep up that fresh, clean look.
Named after Julius Caesar himself, this cut is believed to be tied to power. The look is a short length with small, horizontal fringe in the front. To make this look even more stylish, you can add a fade.
For those with medium hair length, this is a nice option because it’s casual for at home and outings with friends but can by styled for work. It is great for any age to look sophisticated yet edgy.
Pixie Salon actually deemed this the “Quarantine Groomed Cut.” The French top, has shorter sides with a longer length on top. Cleaning up the sides and trimming and cutting through the top gives the hair a stylish shape. This cut is perfect for using a pomade or tonic to make it look elegantly disheveled.
Reuzel Finest Pomade
The Reuzel Finest Pomade is used for dry styling and gives a flexible hold. Finishing a men’s haircut with pomade adds a nice matte finish. While this product does hold the hair in place for styling, it still allows clients to run their fingers through the hair and play around with the look. This is great for touching up the style throughout the day.
When looking to purchase Reuzel’s finest pomade, keep in mind that the colors indicate the various types of holds and shine. Red and Blue cases are high shine while white is a matte finish. If you want very light hold, use the light blue. For a strong hold, opt for the pink or regular blue case. If you ever have questions about the type of finish and hold, ask your stylist which is best for your hair during your appointment.
Reuzel Grooming Tonic
This tonic can be used for both wet and dry styling. It gives natural feeling hold for all hair types. The grooming tonic is perfect for blow-drying because it will protect the hair from heat
Applying Reuzel Grooming Tonic before blow-drying gives the hair a light hold, and allows your stylist to cut through a finished look.
Additionally, the grooming tonic is a useful tool to breakdown any product buildup on the hair if you want to skip a wash. It dilutes that buildup while still allowing grip for further styling.
In addition to the above Reuzel styling products, we also have Reuzel Daily shampoo, 3 in 1 TeeTrea shampoo and daily conditioner.
The best way to try a product without committing to the full size is by getting travel size products, which Pixie also carries. These are also great gifts.
