Top: Medium Length
HOW TO: This style is perfect for men because it is easy to do, and it is very masculine with an attractive texture. Use a blow dryer to blow your hair upwards and shape it into a quiff for the foundation of the style hold. Rub a small amount of hair gel into your hand and work it into your hair all the way from the top to the roots. Use your finger tips to comb through from front to back to roughen and shapen it up on the top and sides. Lightly pat your hair down behind the fringes letting them stay forward, and pat the sides down. Then you are done!
HOW TO: This one is pretty easy to describe. Make it wild and clean in a way that brings order out of chaos. Use enough hair gel to do the job, don’t be skimpy. Work the gel in so it covers the entire strand of hair from tip to root. Then style it the way you like.
HOW TO: Use a blow dryer to shape the front of your hair upward, and at the same time blow the sides downward. Use a little styling gel to cover the hair from the tip to the root, and then mold the shape into a pyramid with your fingers in the front and top of the hair. Now just bring down the sides of your hair, and you have it!
HOW TO: Use a blow dryer to shape your hair downward and to the side for the basic style of your hair. Use a decent amount of gel, apply it to the entire hair from tip to root, and style it swept to the side so it flows. On one side, keep the hair flowing down and add a slight part of the hair on top. Then on the other side, gently shape the hair so it flows with the front. And now you have a textured fringe.
Front: Short / Medium
HOW TO: Make sure your hair product eliminates frizz because that is something you do not want with a side parted style. Use a little bit of gel but not too much. Work it down into the roots, but don’t overdo it because you will end up with crispy hair. Flow the front of your hair to one side, and push the other side back. This will create the basic side part. Use a comb where the part is to pull down and create a nice sharp part line. Any hair below the line gets combed down, and any hair above the line gets combed up and to the side. And you are now side parted.
HOW TO: Remember the side parted hairstyle because all those comments apply here, too. For this style, you will have to have a medium length of hair. Use your fingers to create a center part near your forehead and don’t worry about making it perfect. Take a decent amount of hair gel and push your hair a little bit upward and sideways with a wide-toothed comb.
HOW TO: All you have to do is tell your hairdresser to make your sides fade into the top. This hairstyle is simple and straight-forward. The top is kept short, and the sides are kept even shorter that the top. You can add short side burns to this style as an option.
