It won't look right. If you comb your hair to the side it's going to draw attention to that extremely large widows peak. It's just going to read I'm balding regardless if you are or not.

Funny that Gosling's haircut in CSL is mentioned because I've had this hair cut for a couple months now. I really, really like it. Easy to maintain, but looks good and I get compliments on it. If you're not sure if you could pull it off, talk to your stylist and they can help you out.

that's what I was thinking and afraid of. Really not sure what would look good with my hairline. it's incredibly frustrating. :(

 

patrick gave me some ideas, but i'm still not sure.

Your hair line is very similar to Jude Law. You may be capable of styling your hair like his youthful self but also search his 2012 hair style to see where it is now. Maybe you can style some where between.

Lately I have been getting my haircut with clippers (#2) on the sides and back, and scissor trimming the top to a moderate length.  As far as styling goes, I either sport a messy spike/fauxhawk for casual occasions/everyday and then for more formal events I part it.  I'm looking to grow my hair out, and wear a long style (close to shoulder length).  How can I achieve this without looking like a slob on the way to long hair?  I haven't had long hair since I was a freshman in high school, and when I did it was a terrible, forward-brushed shag. facepalm.gif

 

I just really don't know what to as far as maintenance cuts goes.  I have really thick, coarse hair that gets wavy when it gets longer.  It has a tendency to get poofy and I'd rather avoid this if possible.

If you want to pull off longer hair right, just go along the lines of a Keith Urban. As far as maintenance cuts, I'd talk that over with a stylist.

I'm unsure if I want to go that long, and I don't really like bangs.  I was thinking more of a pushed back look.  My hair is more like this when it gets long:

 

 

 

700

 

I'm going to try to get this length and then decide if I want to go longer or maintain.  I've had short hair for so long now.  I've had times where I decided to grow it out, but for whatever reason I always changed my mind and went back to my comfort zone.

Angelus should really be in this thread.

Hi all, first post here on SF.

 

Looking for some advice, input, ideas, brainstorming, etc. for what to do with my hair.

 

I currently get it cut about once every month, short on the sides and back, textured and styled on top. I don't mind the look but I've had it for so long I want to try something slightly different. My gf loves long hair on guys so I'm debating growing it out but I haven't done that since I was about 10 so I have no idea what it's going to look like. One thing to note is that my hair is EXTREMELY straight, to a point of annoyance. I have a hard time getting it to fold over at all when I try to sport the combed back, textured look. It's so straight it just grows from my crown straight down and I'm not sure what it will do if I try to grow it out.

 

Also does anyone think I could achieve either of these styles with my poker straight hair?

 

700

 

with maybe this as the in between stage style?

 

 

700

I have seen black guys use pomade, but I think I will have to use a lot to keep my hair down a bit.

try layrite, works on wavy hair perfect.

Beeswax based product doesn't work good on wavy or curly hair. It makes it more so. You need something that dries, not just coats the hair.

i have wavy hair and layrite works great when i do the wall st slick back. granted your hair has to be a little damp when applying.
post #523 of 1190
Then your hair must be finer than mine and cals.
post #524 of 1190
its pretty dense, i have to use a fair amount of product to get it to sit right, where in nyc do you get your hair cut?
post #525 of 1190
I use a guy who travels around. For me it will look good for about 3 minutes, than it will curl up.
