Inspired by the 1920s and 1930s when hairstyles were simple, understated, classy and fashionable - think Great Gatsby style. The ‘Undercut’ or ‘Slicked back’ is probably the most sophisticated of this era where men would ask for the traditional "short back and sides" but keep length on the top. The key thing for this hairstyle is for the sides not to be blended with the top layers, the name ‘undercut’ indicates there needs to be definition between the two. The Slick Back is ideal as it keeps your hair off your face and requires very little styling. All you need is a wet look product with a strong hold and you're set! To get this look, ask your barber for a tight fade on the back and sides to create a strong contrast. You want the top layers to be longer so that you can ‘slick them back’ with product.
To style, look for volumizing products with a strong hold. American Crew Superglue is an excellent choice and will lock in your style. TiGi Hard Head is another great product that will lift your style. Simply run the product from the front to the back and sculpt the bangs into place.
