I have a little Mitch Men's Steady Grip hair gel. How to use it? Towel dry the hair. I just sprayed it down with a little bit of water. So it should be towel dried, fresh out of the shower. And there's two ways of doing it. One is straightforward and simple. A little, like a fifty cent piece. Because he has a lot of hair. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair you can use up to a nickel, a quarter, or a fifty cent piece a dollar.

So you want to distribute it evenly. Again, throughout the hair, you want to cover every area. All the hair. The sideburn area, in behind the ear. You want to go up on it and down on it. You just don't want to coat the top, and then all underneath doesn't have it. So I would say the most important thing about using hair gel is distributing it evenly throughout the hair. And then, depending on the style that you want, either you're going to leave it dry natural. Like this. And it's going to have its own little pokey, kind of bedhead look.

Or, what I prefer gel for, is a more groomed look. ... And then what you can do, is you can after you get it placed to where you want it, you can spot do some places. Like if you find it's coming up to a there, and you want to slightly push down, you can take a little bit of gel and add it to spots.

So this is going into that. Little bit more classic mad man look. And you can either take your fingers in the back and DA it, or you can make it come down square around the neck. ... Yeah. Awesome. That's like having a classic. If you want a little tight, that's more a Prada suit wearing, very together. And then my preference is always no. Not really.
