Crested hairstyles have come back into fashion since Donald Draper put on the look of Mad Men. While many hairdressers refuse to call it a comb and instead designate the cut as a side piece, the men’s comb has become very popular over the haircut, as celebrities, hipsters, and day-to-day professionals all use the hairstyle that was once reserved for balding or thin-haired Men (eg Donald Trump) have changed the cool, modern look of today. Long, short or faded, comb attachments are versatile enough for all men. Let’s take a closer look at this classic, sideways curved style.
Men’s comb over haircuts
If you have not found a nice comb that fits your style, you may not have searched enough. Comb styles are very different so that men can really make their haircut their own. For example, you can choose between an undercut or a taper fade on the sides. The short sides and the long hair at the top provide a sharp, but cool contrast that catches the eye.
Likewise, you can emphasize the side with which you comb your hair with a hard part. Or maybe you prefer some volume to your look and want a prickly end on top. The point is – you can cut this as you want and it will still look super hot.
How to get a comb over haircut
To get a haircut over comb, tell your hairdresser you want to start cresting your hair on the side. You may want to have an overlap where the sides are tapered and the hair at the top is long, or you can choose a more conservative, office-proof look and ask for short sides and an even longer top. The fade-comb-over can be as short as shaved pages or rejuvenated.
While the low-fade combo seems to be a common variation, the guys really have a choice of tapes – low, mid, high or skin. These options offer versatility for other types of combs and hairstyles – short or medium length.
How to make a comb over
To make a comb, you must decide whether you want a clean or loose comb. The neat look will give you a hard part and need a pomade to get that shiny, wet-looking finish; while the loose hairstyle provides more volume when fitted with a hair dryer and a matte hair product.
Styling A comb over
To style the comb, follow these steps
1. Apply your styling product throughout your hair. We recommend pomade, wax or putty for a textured finish.
2. Then comb all your hair forward to find the natural part in your hair.
3. Now use this natural part to comb your hair on the sides and comb the rest.
Remember that your hair does not have to be combed straight to the side; You can comb it diagonally backwards or spice up your hair in the front to create a small boost.
