Pomade is a hair styling product used to create hairstyles or smooth hair. It is not intended to be a long-lasting hair fix, but it can be used with other products to look amazing all day. Water-based lipstick is easier to rinse off and does not leave the greasy feeling of hair like when using an oily product.
Method 1 of 3: Applying lipstick
Step 1. Wash and dry your hair
This product adheres better to clean, dry hair.
Step 2. Soften the lipstick by heating it with a hair dryer for a few seconds
Especially when using thick lipstick, it is hard and does not spread well on the palms.
Step 3. Apply a small drop of the product to your palms and spread evenly over them
It is better to add as needed than to apply too much.
Step 4. Apply lipstick to your hair
Following the previous step, add if you are missing.
Method 2 of 3: Modeling short hair with lipstick
Step 1. Use lipstick to create texture or spikes
Rub the product evenly into the part of the hair you want to style. Start at the roots and use your fingers to form an image.
Step 2. Create a sleek hairstyle with a fine-toothed comb
You can also smooth your hair without using a comb. Apply more lipstick to keep the hair in place.
Step 3. Smooth your hair to the sides, while using your fingertips, apply light pressure to flatten it
Method 3 of 3: Modeling Long Hair with Lipstick
Step 1. Use lipstick to create a sleek ponytail, apply a small amount to the ends and top of your hair while tucking it into the back of your head
Step 2. Tie a smooth bun using lipstick, rubbing it into your hair and gathering it at the back of your head
Twist the tail into a tourniquet and fasten with hairpins. If any strands fall out, spread them with a product to fix.
Step 3. Make curls by hand by applying lipstick to your hair, starting from the middle of the length to the ends
This method works well for people with curly hair who live in humid climates where the curls are disheveled.
Step 4. Separate and accentuate the layers by applying lipstick to the ends of your hair
This can be done with your fingertips, rubbing in the product and parting the edges to show the structure.
