Using your fingers, lift your top section from your fringe backwards
Using an Uppercut Deluxe Comb, start by lifting your fringe section and combing backwards.
Next, comb your sides into place and form your parting
Finally, use your hands to smooth your style into shape and tend to any loose hairs

About The Textured Side Part
Adding texture to a hairstyle is often a good thing. From the style icons of the 50’s and 60’s through to the modern gent, texturizing hairstyles is nothing new. It is however something that takes considerable skill and effort to keep it looking good all day long. Contrary to popular belief, making a textured style look good and effortless actually requires considerable thought. Whether you’re looking to modernize a classic style or set your own direction, make sure you start with a hair cut that allows you the versatility to choose.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that its all down to the product you use – its way more than that, starting off with the very foundations of the cut you get at the barbershop. Your barber will understand this, so make sure to explain when you’re getting a trim that you like to wear your hair slicked or textured – or a combination of all of these.
Once you’re happy with the basics of your style, Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight is a great and extremely versatile product. Its ideal for textured, messy styles, offering just enough hold and grip to keep shorter hair held in place. Its finish is low shine and matte, while being water based for that no-fuss wash out straight after use.
Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight is a classic and easy to use product. It grips as you apply it through your hair, giving more hold as you work it through.
