Tight sides with a long top provide sleek body with a flexible crest that can look edgy or polished, depending on styling. Shorter lengths around the sides provide leanness and strength, giving masculine tailoring to looser lengths on top. For the guy who likes options, this shape will provide maximum versatility. Wear this cut sleek and smooth, sculpted into a pompadour, swept into a grungy tumble, or hanging loose.
Step 1: To get the most elegant version of this style stay clear of clippers, a scissor or razor cut will allow for more individualized sculpting that accounts for cowlicks, growth patterns and changes in density. Ask for a precisely tapered shape around the edges, but on top go for soft, textured ends which will lend the shape maximum versatility.

Step 2: Get some products. For the full range of styling options, you’ll need grooming crème, pomade, wax, and dry shampoo. Apply hair crème for a sleek, low volume finish; use pomade for retro gloss; texture paste will give a grungy, piecy look; dry shampoo adds a matte tousled effect.

Step 3: Apply product roots to ends working from the crown of the head out to the sides and then through the front. Create separation and definition with fingertips; don’t use your palms.
