Even classically stylish guys need to focus on grooming. While we here at OTC central don’t have a major personal care regimen, per se, we do need good stuff for our hair. And thanks to our friends at Birch Box, we now have a new favorite hair styling brand, Hanz de Fuko, which is currently being sold exclusively through Birchbox.com.
We checked out their Pomade, Spongewax, and Quicksand products and found all three to be outstanding, each in their own way. The great thing about these products is that they can help style your hair whether wet or dry and do so with a natural look. It’s this quick and effective styling that has received some pretty glowing coverage from the likes of Esquire, QG, and Details. So, whether you are going for something highly styled, a la David Beckham (a regular user), or you pull the I-don’t-do-the-style-thing-I-just-have-cool-hair, bit, this brand has you covered.
Here is a little bit about the three products we tried out through Birch Box. Our everyday go-to choice is Quicksand. It’s particularly light, holds well, and looks perfectly natural.
Hanz de Fuko Modify Pomade
A lightweight, modern pomade that’s great for a slicked back but never greasy look. This medium-hold formula is water soluble which means less grease with a softer feel, still giving your hair smoothness and definition.
Hanz de Fuko Spongewax
This is a firm-hold hair styler for everything from perfect “bedhead” to a put-together pompadour. This lightweight, water soluble wax, made with organic ingredients and natural plant extracts, thickens and adds fullness while still allowing you to sculpt your hair.
Hanz de Fuko Quicksand
An oil-absorbing styler to get that back-from-the-beach look. This medium-hold hair product is one part styling wax, one part dry shampoo. This gritty formula contains a soft granular rock similar to pumice that sucks up excess oil and adds lots of texture.
