Hair Styles (26)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-01-20 06:09 ID:G9y3YCWH

I've been doing some research on ways to style my hair since I got an invite to a facebook group on jrocker style hair. I started to grow out my hair this summer and last month I tried using wax after seeing a gatsby video.

A lot of people say hair-irons are essential, but I don't think my hair is long enough to get its full benifit.

Any styling tips?

Are you Asian? If you are not and are trying to imitate the styles of j-rocker hair it will be harder since the texture is different.

I would suggest both a hair iron and a straightening balm. I recommend Frederick Fekkai "straight away" balm. It can be purchased at Sephora or other high end department stores for about $17.50. I think an iron will work on shorter lengths of hair as long as it is very flat.

After you have straightened the hair, style it as you want with the balm and it should hold up through humid weather depending on how stubborn your hair is.

As for good irons, a flat iron by T3 is great and worth the investment. It can also be found at Sephora. If you do not have a Sephora store, there is

yep I got azn hair. So much potential, but I'm kinda lost here. I tried doing what the guys in the commercial did with the wax this morning, but it went wrong, horribly horribly wrong.

I'm really used to using gel, so styling with wax is a bit hard for me.

I think one prob that caused this morning's accident is that my hair is almosed buzzed on the sides. Any specific things I should ask my barber to do next time I'm there?

I'd like to know some tips on how to get azn hairstyles myself, and I'm like the topic creator, I'm a gel person and never had much experience outside of it, recently grew out my hair over the summer, got it to look alright after wearing beanies/caps by keepin my hair flat with it.

But sitting flat on the head is plain and boring, so yea, any hairtips would be really of help, and thanx to >>2 for the hair-product recommendation.

The both of you need to experiment a little more outside of hair gel! Gel can only do so much. Just start playing with different products and look for j-rocker styles with shorter styles. Die from Dir en Grey had shorter hair for a while so you should see what he had done with his hair for ideas or be really creative and make up your own j-rock inspired hair.

I have never tried myself since I do not have the hair and I would look plain silly, but those that have it should work with the locks they have got!

I never wear caps or hats cuz they never look quite right. I'd like to find the perfect hat, but in the meantime, my hair is all I got.

I know gel can only do so much, and I'm trying to expriment just like you said.

is there any way to get azn style hair if your not asian? say if your hair is not curly but a bit wavy, what would you use to get it straight?

8 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-01-30 05:27 ID:/CLtZ51z

Flat-iron. No way around it.

9 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-01-30 14:09 ID:5sUPLQ88

how long does your hair have to be to flat iron it?

10 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-01-30 14:09 ID:5sUPLQ88

and how do you do it properly?

11 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-01-31 14:38 ID:0gttgs4X


It can be any lenth as long as it goes in the damn straitener.

Just try it, if it doesnt work have a shower. Water washes out straitened hair.

well i gave up on the hair iron besides it burns your hair. Cool hair is very hard to acomplish, when i had short hair i burned my head and after a shower i was in a hurry and my hair kinda burnt and turned orange just dont under estimate a hair iron. its such a drag and for lazy people like me, no way. i cut my own hair just try whatever rows your boat.

If you are going to flat iron your hair:

  1. Get a CERAMIC flat iron. They aren't so expensive anymore.
  2. Remember to condition your hair.
  3. Untangle your hair beforehand. So that # 4 is easier to manage.
  4. Let the iron go smoothly through your hair, at an even pace, and not too slowly. If you linger too long, you risk burning. If you linger to long in sections, you're likely to get some damage in localised areas which will create weak points which become the most likely points of failure should excess stress be applied.

blinks Hmm, engineering class caught up with me.

And use good hair products, not crap.

anyone know a site that displays j-rocker hairsytles and shows you how to make it?

18 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-06-01 20:16 ID:VKtbo3H1

I'm not azn or japanese but I can usually get my hair to do cool styles without ironing it. I have a flat iron but almost never use it these days. Blow dry it the right way and u may not need an iron. And pick a wax that suits your hair texture. Work wax in from the bottom out (don't start on top of your head or at the tips of your hair). Tease your hair for volume and lightly comb the top to make it look smooth.

Recommended products:

Waxes and pastes:
American Crew - wax
Aveda Control Paste - sort of a firm pomade
Bed Head Headbanger (TIGI) - spray-in wax
Aquage paste

Lux Super Rich Conditioner
Bed Head Moisture Maniac
Aussie Deep Conditioning Masque

And flat irons? I bought a ceramic one that I use often (and have undamaged hair, despite it being colored) for $35 at Sally Beauty Supply.

What's the difference between those wax and pomades? I hesitate to pick one on an impulse by since they seem to go for 12-15 $.

A pomade is a bit more pliable than a wax. Softer and lighter, I suppose, and can blend with other products. So if you want to do a really radical hairstyle that you hope to hold all day, I'd suggest going for a wax or hairspray rather than a pomade, which is better for just adding some texture.

I have relatively thick hair and waxes often hold a lot better. The Aquage paste, although it's expensive, is a great product. Oh yeah. And it smells REALLY fucking good.

I've been using gatsby wax, 3 kinds. I used to use it pretty effectively with shorter hair, but since I've grown it out more, I'm having less and less control with it. Not sure if it's the wax, applying technique, cut, or other factors.

Need help.

I could use my sis' ceramic iron, just find it hard by myself using a mirror.

Hairspray is my best friend. Aerosol. It's your best friend and worst enemy (well, for the environment) but it works THE BEST. Trust me on this, I'm a makeup and wig major in Theatre Design and Production. Always spray underneath the hair, not on top. You'll get that nasty heavy look if you spray it directly onto the spikes or whatever you're doing with your hair. When finshed styling, gently mist it all around your head at about a on foot radius. That'll help hold the hair in place. Teasing can also help but you always want to do it under the layers wehere it won't be seen.

If you wanna go for the spiky JRock/anime style, it really helps when you have a good cut for the purpose. Most Asians who want to achieve that look get a lot of layers, sometimes kind of choppy or shaggy. I know a lot of hairstylist use razors to get that look. Using this can thin your hair out a bit, which makes it easier to spike up and separate. I watched a video that said hair about between about 6 cm to 12 cm is easy to spike without being too short.

If you don't go to an Asian hairstylist [or even if you do] it's best to bring in pictures of what you want and explain how you want your hair cut in detail.

Also, you can always look up tutorials and information on other sites and whatnot.

Besides Gatsby wax, I like to use G2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray and OSIS Thrill fiber gum/wax
