jessica here :) today i’m going to be going over cutting a LONGER HAIRSTYLE for MEN. these haircuts have been a trend for a while now and they aren’t going anywhere. stars like JOHN STAMOS, JOHNNY DEPP, and BRADLEY COOPER flaunt this type of hairstyle. this trend doesn't look like it’s going out of style any time soon!
today, i’m going to keep it simple by making the sides and back short while keeping the length on top. from there you can adjust your OVER DIRECTION and your FINGER ANGLES to leave more or less length on the sides and/ or the top.
first, i’m going to take a ‘HORSE SHOE’ section from the PARIETAL RIDGE upwards and clip it away. next, starting at the front (by the hairline), i’m going to take a DIAGONAL BACK PARTING.
now, i’m going to pull that hair toward myself, PERPENDICULAR to the part and cut it to the desired LENGTH.
then, i will take the next section and COMB it into the PREVIOUS SECTION and use my previous section as my GUIDE.
i’m going to COMB the hair HORIZONTALLY and make sure there is a SLIGHT INCREASE in LENGTH.
i'm going to continue using diagonal back partings and use the same guide for my length as im cutting towards the nape.
PRO TIP: you can adjust your finger angles to leave more or less length at the nape.
now for the center back of the head. i am going to take a vertical parting and use the length at the occipital bone as the guide and cut straight up (basically you are layering the hair).
continue this with the adjacent sections. over direct each new section into the previous to maintain length on the corners of their head. continue this until the new sections no longer reach.
PRO TIP: over directing the hair here is very important! what makes this haircut more "masculine" than a short cut for women is how square it looks. without the corners, the shape is no longer a square, it becomes more round.
now for the top! i comb down the ‘HORSESHOE’ section that i had clipped away earlier. i will start cutting this section by the HAIRLINE. using a HORIZONTAL PARTING, i will comb the hair straight up and cut the hair “SQUARE” to my desired length (equal length from left to right).
time to connect the ‘HORSESHOE’ to the BOTTOM of the head. taking VERTICAL sections, comb the hair straight up and out and notch out any corners that you find. i’ll continue this all the way around the head.
here is the finished cut! it looks BEAUTIFUL. we can still see some of the gray PEEKING through, which is perfect.
to finish up the style we are going to use nvenn’s ‘texture’ whipping paste. take a few dabs with your fingers and pull the product through the hair before combing back. this ultra WEIGHTLESS molding hair paste gives hair a matte finish with exceptional hold.
