MFH says

Leonardo DiCaprio, is that you? 90s hair at its best – thick, full and slicked back.

Work with retaining the density on the corners for a truly retro style.

  • Scissor cut.
  • Leave plenty of length in the front, to be able to slick back.
  • To start with, the top and sides are isolated.
  • The haircut starts at the back of the head with the hair elevated at 90 degrees to the head and cut square.
  • The same technique is also used through the sides.
  • To cut the top, vertical sections are taken through the curvature of the head and also cut square.
  • The fringe is only trimmed so as to maintain the length when it is pushed back.
  • A deep point cutting is used to finish off cut – this adds texture and removes any unnecessary weight in the hair.
  • A round brush can be used whilst drying the hair to smooth out the hair.
  • Styling products like Kevin Murphy Undressed or Bumble and bumble Semisumo will a shine and soft hold.
