Clean Slick Back – Hairstyle information:
What to ask for in the barbershop: Ask your barber to scissor cut the back and sides, leaving a medium length fade around the edges. Make sure you leave plenty of length across the top, with the hair length getting slightly shorter from front to back of the head
Explain that you like to wear your style controlled on top and controlled at the sides, but don’t like your hair clippered or taken too close.
Ideal hair type: Good for all fine-medium types. Not great if you have a receding hair line.
Styled with: Uppercut Deluxe Pomade, Uppercut Deluxe Tortoiseshell Comb
How to recreate at home: Start with wet hair. Using a hair dryer and a brush, dry your hair wet hair into the shape of your finished style. Take a generous scoop of Uppercut Deluxe Pomade and spread evenly across both hands – fingers and palms. Start by using open hands to smooth product through your top section, working from front to back. Use your palms to smooth your sides into shape. Make sure you avoid any product smears, or get too carried away with how much you apply.
Once product has been applied, use an Uppercut Deluxe comb to set your style into shape. Start by combing from the centre of your forehead, backwards. Move from this centre position to the side of your head, working section by section until you have completed one half of your head. Move back to the centre section and repeat on the other side of your head.
Make sure not to apply too much pressure to save from flattening your top section. Finally, tend to any loose flyaway hairs with your hand.
