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 HairThis 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 Hair1. 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.
