All the products you should be using for your hairstyle and length

When the weather begins to change, a new hair story surfaces.

While trends come and go, there are certain lengths and styles that will forever remain in our rosters. That being said, our rather unusual climate as of late has convinced us to ditch our relaxed wash-and-go routine for a more pro-product routine.

We’re talking about inviting a layered approach to gels, oils and the like into our daily grind. These helpful hair tools will not only ensure your heavily-textured bob stays put, but that your strands will stay soft and smooth for those pending dinner plans come evening.

If you’re looking to add the right product for your length, we’ve got you covered. Nix any bottle that has been lurking in your vanity for over six months and spring for something fresher. These newer names boast innovations that are built to combat climate change, environmental damage and more. Your hair doesn’t need to be coated in gel for it to stay put, and we’ve found a few enticing options to prove our point.

Check out our library of products for each length.

Think girl crush Halsey for this particular chop. If you’re currently rocking this short look, then you definitely already have a few pomades in your product rotation. Luckily, we’re keen on testing out the latest and greatest, and we’ve stumbled upon this short-hair hero.

Product: Sally Hershberger 24K Vanity Hair Shaping Balm ($32,

Why it works: This dry wax is built to shape and smooth your strands, all the while taming your flyaways. And while a dry wax sounds heavy, it’s anything but that. This formula was created with a sleek style in mind, and is ideal for finishing your signature look. Simply flip your head, style, and go.

Our bob of the year award definitely goes to Taylor Swift. While her pageant-worthy strands will always have a permanent place in our hearts, she’s definitely owning her textured cut as of late. If you’re committed to getting this chop, or you’re already sashaying down the streets with this bold look, we salute you. So in order to ensure each and every strand stays put, we’ve tracked down the one product that you definitely need to work into your post-shower routine.

Product: H&M Texture Styler ($13,

Why it works: A bob should be built on the foundation of textures and layers, most simply to avoid that unfortunate mushroom shape. This mattifying and moisturizing styler is medium-hold, and helps to keep your shape with a newfound ease. Fragranced with essential oils and infused with organic beeswax and coconut oil, this certified organic vanity charmer is the perfect product to work in between your palms.

Chloe Grace Moretz is a bonafide Hollywood hair chameleon, but one of our favourite lengths on this resident “It” girl has got to be her collarbone-grazing chop. While it might not work for every face shape, we love this look for its ability to add structure and the appearance of length. And for this particular chop, we recommend a product that has the ability to hold, all the while allowing for the hair to fall perfectly without even trying.

Product: Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Quinoa Frizz Control Gel ($26,

Why it works: For this length, a light to medium hold product should be the consistency you’re looking for. While you need to ensure your style stays put, the length also begs for a bit of movement. This particular product adds softness and shine, and seals the hair cuticle with its Rice amino acids and tomato fruit ferment. If you’re looking to banish frizz and protect against environmental damage look no further. This product does not need to be washed out, and can be left in your strands for added strength and elasticity. Bonus, this product is also free of silicones, gluten, and any artificial dyes. It also happens to be cruelty-free and is safe to use on chemically treated, relaxed, and keratin-treated strands.

Hailee Steinfeld is our poster girl for perfect medium-length locks. While this style is definitely a popular go-to among young Hollywood, we’re also loving it for the summer. Let your inner Ariel shine this sunny season, and master those steal-the-show worthy mermaid locks.

Product: Ouai Wave Spray ($32,

Why it works: Keeping long strands intact is definitely a balancing act. For those effortless waves, you’ll want to invest in a weightless mist that offers that chic and undone look you’re going for. Avoiding heavy pomades and gels will ensure your strands look like they’re infused with salt water and not cement. This particular product has added rice protein for hold and body without any of that early 90’s crunch. Simply mist this white musk, Italian lemon and amber scented product into your hair post-shower, and voilà!

Our current hairspiration Gigi Hadid has been known to sport those supermodel waves like it’s nobody’s business. And if you want that Victoria’s Secret worthy bounce, you definitely need to opt for a multi-tasking hero product. We tracked down a product that gives you that beach bounce, but that also happens to be infused with hair helping ingredients.

Product: Alterna Haircare Bamboo Beach BB Beach Balm for Hair ($30,

Why it works: Since your strands are long, you’re going to want to prime and protect them from the elements. This five-in-one multitasker addresses all of your concerns and more. From hydrating your hair, to fighting frizz and warding off those UV rays, your strands will never look sleeker. This product can be used on all types of hair as a primer or singular styling product. Bonus, this sublime smelling product is infused with Tahitian coconut and bamboo extract for that resilient runway hair you’re after.
