HOW TO'S

 

A COMB-OVER

Comb-Over Requirements:

While the length of hair on the sides and neckline can vary, a classic comb-over shouldn't get too short: Start with a #2 or #3 buzzer setting and work up to a #3 or #4 on top. Work with your hair's natural shape to determine where you should part it. A comb-over is ideal for various hair types, such as, thick/thin, light/dark, short/long or straight/curly as the idea is to have your hair falling neatly to a desired direction.

How to Style a Comb-Over/Side Part:

1. Start with clean, towel-dried hair. 
2. Use a blow dryer on high heat for longer hair if you want added volume. 
3. Take a dime-sized amount of hair product for a looser, casual look. Work the product into your hair, beginning at the roots and starting from the back of the head. 
4. For a clean part, run a comb lengthwise from the back of the head to your forehead, then separate the hair. For a messier part, just separate with your fingers.

 

FOR LONG HAIR

Requirements for Medium-Length Hair

This is similar to the side-part haircut (a very slight difference in length between sides and top) but considerably longer—roughly 10 inches on the sides, and 12 inches up top. 
• Ensure that the back doesn’t get too long, otherwise you’re risking a mullet. 
• Ask your stylist to work some layers into the cut—this will give more depth and movement to your look.

How to Style Medium-Length Hair

1. Start with clean, towel-dried hair. 
2. Using a blow dryer, put you head down and begin directing air upwards to the scalp until fully dry. 
3. Use a brush to take down any unwanted volume on the top on sides. 
4. If you have wavy hair, work in a matte hair styling product to get some separation. 
5. If you have straight hair, try some leave-in conditioner from the root to the tip when hair is still damp.

 

FOR SHORT HAIR

Creating different looks can be challenging when you have short hair, but if your hair is longer than a buzz cut, it's still long enough to style. The styling products you use, the direction in which you comb your hair, and the way you dry your locks all play a big role in creating the finished look. Take a small amount of hair product, (around the size of a nickel or a dime) rub well between your hands until you feel it's emulsified. Work with the hair starting at the top side of your part. Continue arranging it in this manner until you reach the opposite side of the crown, at a point roughly mirroring the placement of your part Work through the hair so that the hair strands are evenly coated. Use your fingers to liven up the texture and blow dry cold to lock in the messy look.
