Holiday Hairstyles from the Stylist

Tis’ the season! It’s holiday party time. And our favorite questions are here too, like, what to wear, how to style your hair and which French wine you should bring? Well, today I will be sharing with you two hairstyles that are appropriate for the season, and few tips from someone who knows a thing or two more than I do about hair.

Rogaine invited me to meet with Celebrity Stylist, Benjamin Thigpen, whose work has graced the glossy pages of GQ, Departures and more, in addition to doing hair for the Patriot’s wide receiver, Julian Edelman, and Stranger Things’ Joe Keery. I was lucky enough to take the hot seat to find out how I should style my hair this holiday season!

We stopped by the Blind Barber where Benjamin gave me a little trim and shared his tips and tricks for my next holiday soirée. I’m sharing below two styles, one on the more polished and sophisticated side while the other is more on the wild and messy side.

Clean and Polished

My first look is the more modest and reserved look for the fellas that are planning on wearing something more than casual, like a nice velvet tuxedo jacket layered over a turtleneck sweater. You can never go wrong with the “I’m a good Jewish boy” look.

A Tip from Ben: If you’re going to go for a more clean and polished look then definitely grow out your beard and have a little scruff so the contrast will stand out.

Messy & Rugged

The other look, which is the one I personally prefer out of the two is the messy and rugged style. If you choose to dress up or dress down, this hairstyle essentially can be paired with anything you choose to wear.

A Tip from Ben: If you want to go rugged, but not too rugged, keep your hair messy, but make sure to keep your facial hair trimmed or even shaven off.

4 Easy tips for better hair this Holiday:

  1. Use heat (or blow dry your hair) with very little product (like pomade) for a natural bedhead look.
  2. Ben suggests to use a volumizing mousse to help make your thinning hair look fuller. Its a good trick to hide some of the empty areas, hence why Ben used the volumizing mousse to really get the hair strands to expand when the heat was applied.
  3. Don’t be afraid of change, but also don’t go overboard right before the holiday season. Stick to something that you like, however, if you want to try something different and bold I would suggest testing it out weeks before the holidays just in case you don’t like it and won’t be stuck with it. You’ll have the chance to grow it out before the holiday celebrations.
  4. Rogaine can be used with any styling products so it doesn’t interfere with your look or styling routines. For those who have thinning hair, or think their hair is thinning, give Men’s Rogaine Foam a try.

Thanks again to Rogaine for hooking up this styling session! For those of you who have thinning hair, or think you might be thinning, give Rogaine Foam a try. It can be used with any styling products so you can pull off any look you want. Find it on Amazon!

The One Thing You Need to Trim Your Beard

Shaver- iStubble by Conair

Fact: I didn’t know how to trim my own beard up until recent *insert embarrassed emoji face*. It’s way easier than it looks, but between being a afraid to make a mistake, and not having the time to learn, I  would always go to the barber to get my weekly beard trim. I’ve had my facial hair for about two years, and usually trim it down to a 1.5 or 2 once a week. I recently started using the new iStubble by Conair, which has a unique floating contouring head that allows you to choose the desired length without having to switch any of the heads, like an ordinary buzzer. The floating head technology flexibly contours over the face, jawline, and neck for the most precise trimming ever.

This holiday season I’m partnering with Conair to give you a chance to win one Conair’s iStubble. Head over to my instagram to learn how to enter. It’s easy, I promise.

Getting Groomed with Panasonic during #NYFW

I always find myself  running around during #NYFW, svitzing because of the humidity and of course being conscious of my flat hair due to the weather condition. So, naturally, when Panasonic invited me over to their beauty bar there was no way I was missing out on an opportunity to get groomed and ready for the shows. At that time I was introduced to the Panasonic ER-GB80 beard trimmer. For the past year I’ve been growing my beard, and have been seeking for the perfect gadget to trim it. (I’ve always ended up completely shaving off my beard since I never knew  how to properly use a shaver.  So for the last few months I have been going to barber shops to get it trimmed *embarrassed emoji face*) BUT, now I’m really excited about this device since it has everything I need, and the chances of messing up is real slim. With 39 adjustable length settings, precise cutting technology and easy maintenance = clean trimmed beard = happy Moti.
