Getting "professional" looking hair from shoulder length curly hair for men?

I'm looking to present a more professional image.

Currently, my 3B hair is ~shoulder length, and it's the longest I've ever had it. I'm quite new to long hair, so I'm not sure what to do with it.

I've been doing the CG method for ~1 year, so it looks fine left alone, but just not "professional".

Any suggestions as to what I can do to my hair to make it look more "professional", as well as how to do it? (CG methods would be appreciated)

I'm guessing you want results that leave it really defined, soft, and shiny. I'm not saying that it's not possible, but there's a reason that people use hair models for hair product ads.

I think to get a good idea of techniques you can use, you should go to youtube and check out the devacurl, jessicurl, hair rules, and ouidad videos. They seem to feature a lot of curly people that have hair in your type.

Also make sure you have a gentle shampoo, moisturizing conditioner/oils, and a good gel. I personally use Ouidad's climate control heat and humidity gel. It has good hold, but it's watery and slippery. I can spread it throughout my hair without a problem and I have fine, kinky/curly, 3c hair. If the gel gets too hard, I can always take an oil and "scrunch out the crunch". Ouidad's expensive, so the gel is the only thing I willingly bought. It's good, but herbal essences gels are similar to it and cheaper.

imho the only way for a man with long hair to have a professional look is to pull it back into a ponytail with no fly-aways... sort of a slicked back look. It not only looks more professional but sexy too. You see it on TV all the time.

You can wear it down on your off time. I happen to love long curly hair on men.
