If you’ve been wondering how to nail an epic slick back using Uppercut Deluxe Monster Hold, you’re in the right place.

As part of our How to: Grooming series, this guide will give you all the information you need in order to achieve a great, classic style in your own time. These step-by-step image will give you all the detail you need to get the most from your hair cut, as well as letting you get the best from your Uppercut Deluxe products.

Before you even think about putting product through your hair, take some time to make sure you have the right style and that your hair is cut well by your barber. Ask your barber to cut a symmetrical style, going high and tight with a short blade clipper.

Also make sure you get a good fade into the longer section on the top – make sure you leave enough length on the top, so that you have enough hair left over to actually slick back something. There is nothing worse than seeing a slick back with short hairs poking through.
