After you spoil your male clients with 18.21 Man Made Grooming items, you’ll want to try them on your female clients. 

The full haircare line includes Man Made Wash, Styling Clay, Paste, Pomade, and Hairspray — all made just for men, yet just as desirable for women. 

Unforgettable Fragrance: The custom blended aroma of Sweet Tobacco Spirits that will transport your clients to a Prohibition Era jazz lounge. The blend of nearly 40 essential oils has notes of tobacco, citrus, vanilla, saffron and musk.

Hairstyle Evolution: Social and cultural evolution defined the 1920s for women and hairstyles followed suit.  With the women’s suffrage movement and the right to vote, women continued to show their independence through fashion and hair. Long Victorian locks were a thing of the past, with short bobs, crops, and shingled hair becoming the latest hairstyles. Many salons did not approve of this rebellious streak and refused to serve women wanting these styles, so they began frequenting barbershops. 

Romantic finger waves and bangs provided a sweet and demure touch to the new cropped styles. Headpieces provided a feminine touch with feathers, jewels and flowers. Strong fashionable women remembered from this era include Josephine Baker, Marlene Dietrich, Claudette Colbert, Greta Garbo, and Coco Chanel.

Unique Haircare: 18.21 uses packaging inspired by vintage whiskey flasks and early 1900s beer cans. The 18.21 Man Made Wash, bottled in a vintage whiskey flask is a combination shampoo, conditioner, and body wash that cleanses hair and skin without harsh surfactants or parabens. It conditions with jojoba esters and macadamia glycerides, while quinoa gives strength and weightless moisture, repairing the hair with every use.  Styling products include Styling Clay, which is a hybrid of wax and clay with a true matte finish. 

Volcanic ash absorbs oil and the whipped water soluble formula doesn’t need warming before application, thus creating a thick, piecey, undone look. The 18.21 Styling Paste is a soft whipped compound with a satin finish providing moisture with pliability.

The Styling Pomade is a flexible product that can be used as a soft gel, put into wet hair for a sexy slicked back look without a crunchy finish or on dry hair to create retro finger waves. The Premium Hairspray is a finishing spray with fast drying and flexible hold, with packaging inspired by vintage beer cans from the early 1900s.
