Hair wax for boys - what brand and how to apply?

My 6 yr old wants to have his blond hair gelled for his school disco tomorrow. I'm not keen on this as a look generally but I'm prepared to give it a go as a one off. However I'm not sure how to go about it.

I'm thinking that wax would be better than gel on blond hair but don't know anything about brands and how to apply. Can anyone give me any tips?

Fudge shaper. Rub a little between fingers and gently apply to indovodual locks of hair, twisting the ends together in a rolling motion as you pull upwards. This is for a bit of definition/texture, not spikes.

I watched a funny programme on this. A comedy sketch I think.
Pritt stick came out top with Vaseline a close 2nd!
But seriously, my OH uses black and white
I have a DD only so no experience other than this.

Matt paste (eg Beach Matt) is good. I hate that glossy gelled look.
Small amount warmed in palm of hands then gently pulled through to define strands, surfer style.

Have bought some matt paste which I'm going to apply very moderately. Hope he doesn't look too silly! Thanks for the help.
