Oh Man: Medium-Hold Hair Gels for Dapper Dudes

Just look at Leonardo DiCaprio, all smart and dapper. His dirty blond hair is brushed back and firmly held back in place, yet it still looks soft enough to run your fingers through ... wake up Bella! (Sorry about that little daydream, I was long gone in Leo-land for a sec.)

This photo from the 11th Hour premiere last week got me thinking of all my favorite medium-hold hair gels for men. Take a peek at this post so that the next time your guy asks you what to buy, you'll be prepared!

Frederic Fekkai Hair Gel for Men ($18.50) is a medium-hold hair gel that also provides texture, definition and shape to long or short hair. It smells great (I actually love it too, even though it's for guys) and it leaves hair shiny, soft and manageable.

For two more medium-hold hair gels for men,

Aveda Brilliant Retexturizing Gel ($5.50) is a great product for guys with medium to coarse hair who want some help with styling, but are also looking for something that allows hair to stay soft and shiny. It's made from nourishing plant proteins like aloe, calendula and chamomile—but no alcohol, so it won't have any kind of a drying effect. Love it!

Kiehl's Just-Out-Of-The-Shower Hair Gel ($13.50) is a unisex gel for all hair types that creates a wet look. It leaves hair shiny and manageable, and it won't ever dry and leave little white flakes in your hair. It is enriched with sunflower, sesame, and soy, so it smells wonderful!
