The cut

First things first. It all starts with a cut that makes use of only the finest barbering techniques, so choose wisely when it comes to your barber. Here are the steps to follow in order to reach a flawless result.

In order to achieve a shiny finish in a natural way, start by asking your barber to cut the sides over comb (or fingers) rather than using clippers. This will also assure a clean-looking result.

Proceed with cutting the hair and leaving about 4 inches over the crown and at the front, as this particular style is known for being a lot heavier on top.

To preserve the look’s classic character, make sure the shape of where the sides and top meet is trimmed square.

Seeing how an all dark hair-do would look more quiff-y, proceed in breaking up your new cut by adding contrast via some natural looking highlights. While not mandatory, this step gifts the haircut with an entirely new dimension.

The styling of this haircut should be fairly easy to handle and it can be resumed to the following steps.

If your hair is straight and soft, start by using a hairdryer to blow dry it backwards off the face.
By working a little bit of wax onto your hands, rub it through the top section of hair moving it around until finding the style that fits you best. Tip: Avoid gels with this specific style as they will quickly dry out.
For an easy and successful approach, style this cut by slicking back the hair and adding a rough side part, using the same wax or a paste product.
