First start with a great cut. Whether your prefer a clipper cut or a scissor cut, find a stylist that will listen to what you want and help you choose a style that is compatible with your face shape and lifestyle. Next use professional quality products. Again your stylist can help you with recommendations for the style you want to create. Armed with a great cut and superior products you’re ready to start styling.
One of the most popular looks is a faux hawk. This is basically a short cut that is longer on the top of your head than on the sides. Wash your hair and towel dry it. Apply a dime size amount of gel to your hands and rub them together to loosen up the gel. Run your hands through the top of your hair and pull it up. Use your fingers to get the hair on your crown to stand up and pull it forward.
Another popular look is to take some wax or pomade and slick back the sides while pulling the top of your hair forward. If you want a sleek look use gel all over and then comb your hair back. Once the gel dries you will get a wet look that will stay in place. If you prefer a messy but chic look, wash your hair and towel dry it. Use mousse on the roots and blow dry your hair using your fingers to style it. Apply a small amount of paste and piece it out with your fingertips. The ultimate in easy care is the buzz cut. Simply have your stylist use her clippers and ask her to use a #2 or #3 guide all over. Ask her to edge your hair to give you a polished look that is very hot right now.
