Short, textured and totally low maintenance. An easy option for guys who want a contemporary look but don’t have the time for overly complicated styling.
- This style is all about texture and volume.
- Keep more weight and length in the sides.
- Scissor cut.
- Use a point cutting technique, as well as twist cutting, to create texture – do not use thinning scissors.
- After shampooing and conditioning the hair, Anthony sectioned the sides of the hair from the top.
- James’ style is all about texture and volume, so Anthony kept more length and weight on the sides – really showing what can be done with a scissor cut.
- Starting with the back and sides, Anthony dusted off some of the length, to even it out before point-cutting into it to build texture.
- He didn’t take much off the top, but he did sweep front to back – with a technique known as overdirecting – to leave more length in the front.
- It was then onto the detail – point cutting around the ears and edges.
- This was also done on the weight line just so it didn’t look too heavy.
- This next bit is impressive – using a twist cutting method, the hair is literally twisted and almost frayed by using the open blade of the scissors. As the hair disperses it gives a textured, choppy effect to the style, whilst still maintaining the length.
- If you’ve got thick and coarse hair, this could really work for you.
- Anthony dried James’s hair by just using a hairdryer and his hands.
- Once it was dried and the initial texture was in, Anthony used Hanz De Fuko’s best selling hybrid clay/wax, Claymation. This is also one of my favourite products from the brand.
- This is a matte product that has a strong hold and is great to accentuate the natural texture of your hair.
- He used the product to really add definition to the style – especially around the crown, which had been kept longer in length.
- And to lock in the style, Anthony finished with Hanz De Fuko Style Lock hairspray. An extreme hold product that mists on but can be brushed out.
