its not really greasy, just a little damp still. when it's dry it's pretty matte.
I think the fit's great and I think the hair works, you just need some other product if you're going for that look.
I'm guessing you're using one of those old school pomades? Those work great for strict and classic masculine hairstyles, like your usual comb back. Shine or grease works best if the style is somewhat tidy, otherwise it might just look like you haven't washed the hair for a week.
For messier styles you need something drier, rougher and more natural looking that adds texture. It need to be more matte to balance it out.
Look into clays, putties and pastes if you're interested.
