Sculpt and Shape: Mastering Hair Clay and Paste

Posted by Customer Service on

Hair clay and hair paste are two distinct yet versatile products in the world of hair styling. Hair clay, provides a strong hold and matte finish, making it perfect for achieving a structured, natural-looking style. On the other hand, hair paste offers a less intense hold, allowing for more flexibility and re-styling throughout the day, with a typically softer and more natural finish. Whether you're seeking a firm, sculpted look or a casual, tousled style, hair clay and paste offer effective solutions to meet your needs.

1. Scoop out the product: Using the back of your thumbnail, remove a pea-sized amount of hair clay or paste and place it in the palm of your hand. Adjust the amount based on the length and thickness of your hair.

2. Melt the product: Rub your palms together to warm and melt the clay or paste, transforming it into a more spreadable and manageable consistency.

3. Apply to damp or dry hair: Depending on your desired finish, apply the product to damp hair for a wet-look finish or to dry hair for a natural look with less definition. Remember that hair paste will have a less strong hold compared to hair clay.

4. Work the product into your hair: Use your fingertips to distribute the clay or paste evenly throughout your hair, focusing on the areas where you want the most hold and definition. Make sure to work the product from the roots to the tips for a consistent application.

5. Style your hair: Shape your hair into the desired style using your fingertips, adding more clay or paste if needed for increased hold and control. Keep in mind that hair paste will provide a more flexible hold, while hair clay offers a stronger hold.

6. Use a comb for a polished look (optional): For a combed-through, finished look, use a comb to gently brush your hair into place. This can help to distribute the product more evenly and create a more polished appearance.

By following these steps, you can effectively use hair clay or paste to style your hair, achieving a wide range of looks from natural and casual to more defined and structured styles. Keep in mind that the paste will have a less strong hold compared to the clay.
