This haircut is the perfect mix of ‘done but undone’. It’s low maintenance and has loads of texture and movement.
- Keep it short at the back and longer at the front.
- Plenty of length at the front to play with.
- The barber doesn’t need to use much product for styling.
- Keep it natural if you wish.
- Robert has very thick hair on the sides but it is lighter on the top. So, he tends to keep it long at the front as he is a little nervous about his receding hairline.
- After washing Robert’s hair, Dani created the base structure of the style by doing a traditional scissor cut. She then used the clippers on a grade 4 to work around the scissor cut.
- Dani tapered the back from a 4 down to a 1, working down the back of the head to the nape of the neck. This created a really clean, smooth and gradual taper.
- Detailers were then used to tidy and sharpen up the sides.
- Moving to the top of the head, Dani used a cut-throat razor to take some of the weight out of the hair. She really focussed the razor right on the ends of the hair.
- Taking out some of the weight on the top allowed the hair to be more easily connected.
- To finish the cut, Dani used foils to remove all the hair and stubble off the base of the neck.
- She also used detailers to clean up the beard line on the cheeks.
- Moving into styling, and whilst the hair was still damp, Dani used Label M’s Grooming Cream, working it into the hair by scrunching it with her hands.
- She then dried the hair, pushing it back, and finished drying it by using a diffuser on the hair dryer. A diffuser helped to build volume into Robert’s finer hair – especially at the front.
- She then used Johnny’s Chop Shop Sports Social to shape and define the hair. This is a fibre product and provides a flexible hold. It is also humidity resistant.
- To finish Robert’s look, Dani used a light hairspray – focussing on the ends.
