Shopping in Downtown Vancouver Jon Hamm Style

Since Mad Men has been on hiatus, Jon Hamm has been busy shooting films like Sucker Punch in Vancouver and hosting Saturday Night Live (Hamm got rave reviews for his second appearance on SNL, especially his sketch as Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown).

Although we may be able to forgive him for predicting US hockey gold over Team Canada, we still can’t wait to see the beardless Don Draper when Mad Men comes back to air later this year. A premiere date for the fourth season of Mad Men has yet to be announced.

Classic Hair for Men

3 Nov

AXE Shine Pomade, Smooth Look

When it comes to men’s hairstyles, everything old is new again.

With series like Mad Men influencing fashion trends, more men are following the lead of Manhattan ad execs like Don Draper who likely spent as much time slicking their hair back as his various wives did teasing their bouffant.

Styling Tips for the Classic Look

Typically, most styling products work best on dry or almost dry hair. However, you’ll want to wet you hair for this look because the pomade will lock in the moisture.

Diane Schmidtke, a Los Angeles-based freelance men’s stylist with clients like George Clooney, Jake Gyllenhaal and Matt Damon, recommends using AXE Shine Pomade to get the classic look for her clients on film sets and photo shoots:

  1. After washing your hair, take a finger tip amount of the pomade and distribute it evenly through the hair from front to back and back to front (you can always use more product, if necessary).
  2. Using a comb, create a side part (which is a key to this look) in a straight line from the front of the head to the crown.
  3. Take another fingertip amount of the shine pomade, rub it vigorously between your hands, and lightly go over the finished style to ensure it stays in place all day whether you’re cutting deals in the boardroom or sipping martinis with clients.
