concerning the ever sought-after top knot:

is it possible to grow a proper one from this:

263

I always tell myself I'm not going to trim the sides, but I can't stand the messiness. The top has been growing since February and I cut the sides myself a couple weeks ago. Probably 3.5" on top and around a #2 on the sides.

Hi, just ordered a puck of American Crew Fiber.

I have short, fine and slightly wavy hair.

I have been reading mixed reviews about Fiber: having strong hold, weak hold, to be put in damp hair, or dry hair.

Can anyone with hair like me share how it has been working for you?

Thanks

You should let the sides grow out a little, go to a hairstylist and let her trim the sides with scissors instead of you using clippers. It will look better. IMO, I am not a hairstylist and do not have a vast knowledge of hair styles and products but that's what I would do.

Is using leave in conditioner similar to just putting something like groom and clean or vitalis?

I'm thinking these..

Should I stick to gel/ wax? That lush seems like a good rec! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

There is no one product for everybody. It depends on how your hair is naturally and ultimately what you want it to do.

If you have wavy, course hair and you want it straight stay away from creams, oils, waxes and anything that is too flexible. You will need something that dries and stays hard to keep it in place. I find that, creams, oils and wax work well if you have very straight hair. Remeber curls of any kind love moisture. I find that my hair respons better to products when I don't use conditioner and such. Dry is good if you want wavy hair more manageable.

Patrick,

I presume your hair is naturally wavy?

I've been letting my hair grow out on top and I'm now approaching the length that I can accomplish a full on pompadour if I wish. But what I really want is a look essentially like yours for most days (a little looser, more casual). Unfortunately my hair has ZERO natural wave. So I'm looking for ways to add it if possible.

I agree with you that using a top quality sylist is essential. A great haircut should not be difficult to maintain. Vidal Sassoon was the master of the style being in the cut itself - not in the styling afterwards. My guy is good - but not Sassoon trained. angry.gif

I've been experimenting with SumoTech - not bad - but will give 'The Big Tease' a try. I like the ingredient list.

Anybody recommend a stylist in or near midtown Atlanta that can really rock a good pomp cut?

Looks like the "undercut" haircut but with longer sides.

Currently tho my hair is as short as mr. Clooney's on my avatar but will grow it out since summer is one in my part of the world.

My hair stylist also says that the brylcreem I was using was only for curly haired people..

You have pretty awesome hair already, iirc. I do have very, very, wavy coarse hair and the product I use is something that pulls it straight and dries it in place without looking like gel. LUSH products are great because they are all natural, if you want to go that route I recommend the "Dirty" hair cream. I think anything with some beeswax, or oil rich will give your hair more definition. Remember curls love moisture, so the more moisture the more definition. Also I would recommend American Crew Grooming cream. Awesome stuff, unfortunately my hair is just too wavy for it.

You're Asian. Asian hair is like a blank canvas, you can do anything with it.

anyone have suggestions for someone with curly hair? I am tired of not having a consistent hair style.

Japanese straightening.
post #492 of 1082
I assume that is similar to the chemical straightening with keratin? I have been told that will damage my hair and it will need to be done every 3 months or so. Ideally I could wake up in the morning and spend no more than 5 min. on my hair.

I am looking for a professional style, if that helps.

Sounds kind of high-maintenance... Just ask a question.

I just wanted to see what people think I should do with my hair as far as a cut and taking care of it. It's pretty dry/dead looking and my hairline is weird/receding(?). shog[1].gif
