How to Style a 60/40 Hairstyle


Welcome back, everyone! In today's blog post, I'm going to share a step-by-step tutorial on how to style a trendy 60/40 hairstyle. This sleek and versatile look is perfect for both casual and formal occasions and requires just two essential products. As always, the products I'll be using are linked in the description below, so let's dive into the process without further ado.

Step 1 - Pre-Styling with Sea Salt Spray:

The first product I'll be using to create this stylish look is the Poseidon Sea Salt Spray. This will serve as a pre-styler, helping us achieve volume and texture in our hair, so it doesn't appear flat and lifeless.

  • Apply the sea salt spray generously all over your hair, ensuring even coverage.
  • Focus on the top of your head, as this is where you want to achieve volume and texture.

Step 2 - Finding the Parting:

Finding the correct parting for your 60/40 hairstyle is essential. It's typically located around the side, and it might be easier to determine if you use a comb, but don't worry if you don't have one on hand.

Step 3 - Styling with Grooming Clay:

The second product you'll need is the Poseidon Grooming Clay. It's crucial to apply this while your hair is still wet for optimal results.

  • Take a small amount of grooming clay (about the size of a pea) and rub it between your fingers until it's barely visible.
  • Distribute the product evenly throughout your hair, just like you did with the sea salt spray.
  • Redefine your parting if necessary and then let your hair air dry. If you prefer a more natural look, you can skip using a hair dryer.

Step 4 - Finishing Touch:

Once your hair is dry, it's time to add the finishing touch to your 60/40 hairstyle.

  • Take a bit more grooming clay, slightly more than you used earlier, and rub it into your fingers.
  • Apply the product evenly around your head for a sleek and polished finish.

Step 5 - The Final Look:

And there you have it, the final look! This 60/40 hairstyle is incredibly versatile and requires minimal effort. It's an ideal choice for both formal and casual occasions, making it a popular trend in 2023.
