If you’re looking to grow as a hairstylist on social media, then one of the first things you’ll likely do is start posting pictures of your clients on social media. Not only does this show off your work to other potential clients, but also it can remind your client of the great experience they had with you. If you’re looking to boost your social media presence, then here are five styling products that tend to bring amazing results.
1. Strong Hairspray
A strong hairspray is a great way to keep your hair looking as beautiful as ever for hours. It can also help you keep unique hairstyles in place for long enough to take a picture; if you tend toward couture hairstyles that are meant for the runway, then a strong hairspray is definitely a must-have for picture-taking.
2. Texturizing Spray
A texturizing spray allows you to get more hold out of a style. Especially if you’re working with pin-straight hair, that hair might be a bit more slippery and have a hard time holding a specific style. If you spray the hair with a texturizing spray before you style it, then you’ll be able to create the style you’re looking for more effectively.
3. Hair Oil
Hair oil is a great way to make hair look shiny, sleek, and healthy. Especially if you’re dealing with hair that looks a little dull or brittle on camera, a small amount of hair oil can be exactly what you need to turn that hair into a beautifully healthy style. Plus, you can pair it in your makeup ensemble with dry shampoo to absorb excess oil from oily hair.
4. Pomade or Hair Wax
Hair wax or pomade can be a unique way to create a semi-permanent color on your hair or to allow your hair to retain a specific style. Similar to hairspray, it keeps the hair in place, but it can also create a “wet look” that can be very desirable on social media. The visible difference between hair with and hair without pomade is a great addition to your social media posts.
5. Volumizing Spray
Finally, it’s also a good idea to use volumizing spray. Volumizing spray can help when you’re dealing with very thin hair or hair that otherwise doesn’t have a lot of its own volume. This spray allows you to build volume on top of thin hair, making it easy for you to create a style that stands on its own even if you’d usually need a very thick head of hair for it.
