Men’s Classic Back And Sides With Long Length On Top

4.0 4 Star

Back to my best? I’ll let you decide! Short back and sides with a longer top. It couldn’t get any more classic.

MFH says

It was time for a change. New year, new me… or however it goes. To be honest, I just wanted to get my face back and to be able to experiment with hair products on YouTube again!

It feels really great to have the back and sides a lot shorter, whilst keeping a really classic shape. Ben has done a solid job again!

  • The easiest thing to do is to take in your phone with this Hairstyle Directory listing.
  • Ask for a ‘square graduation’ with the top left long. This is a square cut.
  • The length has been taken from sides and back.
  • On top, the length has been kept. Over-directing the cut on top has given more length at the front of the hair, and made it sliggtyly shorter at the back.
  • The perimeter (sides, around ears) has been – lightly – detailed to add more edge
  • Work a little thickening (or texture) spray into damp hair.
  • Use a hair dryer on a medium heat and fast speed to start to work the shape into the hair.
    • Use the heel of the hand to push the sides back.
    • Use the fingers to lift the hair on top to add volume.
  • Once dry, work a little clay into the hair – back to front and then front to back.
  • Work in texture and volume, especially on the top.
  • If you like, set with a little hairspray or wear it loose and natural.
