Long Hair Styling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Note: I'm not asking for anyone's opinion on my hair, how you feel about it etc. I am just looking for advice, so let's stick to that subject. Long hair can be discussed somewhere else.
I have long hair and I'm trying to do something a little different with it.
I'm wanting to try to slick my hair back, since I feel it can give me a more professional look, especially when tied up.
I was inspired by Triple H (Let's not talk about wrestling either), and I've attached some pictures, both in a ponytail and let loose.
I've tried to comb and brush my hair back, but it won't stay in the position, and it just goes out to the side again, with the split in the middle.
Does anyone know how I can achieve the slicked back look for my hair? Do I need to use any products? (I'm assuming "maybe" since it seems to stay that way when his hair is wet)
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated, or perhaps you could redirect me to somewhere else that could help me out.
Thanks in advance everyone :)
BTW. we have the same kind of hair, so the issue is not that mine is "curlier" or "finer", or anything like that

You are going to need to use product.  Me, I like Bumble&Bumble Sumotech (https://www.amazon.com/Bumble-Sumo-Tech-1-5-Ounce-Jar/dp/B000BIUGTQ).  Also, long hair is not just "Long".  It's cut and styled that way.  You probably need to a hair stylist to get it done right.  You can't just simply grow it out.

Thanks. I get what you mean, in terms of product.
My hair is a little longer than his hair on the pictures, and I  have a "split" in the middle, which I suppose is what "normally" happens. (Hope you're following me)
The issue for me is getting rid of that, or "moving" it. Could you perhaps elaborate on that? Could I do that myself, or would I have someone else do it?
