But—if you want to go for a sleek style (think Eleven from Stranger Things), then grab Garnier’s Fructis Men’s Liquid Stylers. You get some on your hands, rub them together and then run them through your hair towards the back. It’ll give you the perfect sleek/wet look. This styling product leaves hair looking and feeling great. The putty, pomade, and cream come in a new liquid formula. It’s wax-free which means that the formula glides on even and easily with no sticky residue. You’ll effortlessly style your hair, get the perfect amount of hair and have clean-feeling hair that is soft with no waxy coating.
