    Never had a buzz before -- would it really work for me? I like the idea a lot but my hairline is sort of high so I'm not sure. Would definitely be a change.

    I do like the one in the vid -- the tight sides and bit longer top is a cool look, kinda like mine but...better, I guess. Along those same lines I also like this, like a high and tight sort of cut:

    Could always go in the other direction, too, and grow it a bit for a longer "short" style, maybe like this one?

    Is this kind of look only achievable with a certain hair type? More specifically, what is done to the top of the head? (not front)

    Your hair has to be quite thick to begin with. You won't get the volume unless you've got a lot of hair on top.

    Then product to make it stand up.

    That stuff looks too hard, a wax or light clay might be a better alternative. The runway pic still has an airiness and movement to it, the youtube video is a shell/sculpture

    I can get my hair to look like that from the front with wax and hairspray, but if I try to spike up the top part it just looks like a porcupine with spikes going everywhere. Maybe a result of too much use of the thinning scissors?

    Try removing or toning down the hairspray and then just smearing the wax into your palms and running your hands through your bangs? That or the wax you're using just has too much hold. It would take caking it on to get my wax to create spikes

    Been trying to figure out what to do with my hair. I grew it out to do a side part and I'm not sure if I should keep it or cut it. I was thinking about styling it like the 2nd pic that Nations linked but have had problems getting it to stay. What hair styles work best with my face shape? Any advice or tips appreciated. Thanks.

    /\ The pics of you in the green shirt - your hair looks pretty good. I'd keep it like that.

    Thanks willpower. That was from when I first started growing my hair out. I actually thought it looked like a mess. Haha.

    Been using aveda grooming clay and finding the hold not that great.

    Any opinions on hairbond moulder or Hanz de fuko products?

    If not, might just go with B&B Sumowax.

    Hey, my hair is very fine and somewhat oily. My hair tends to, I dunno how to describe it, clump together and rest on top of each other, so I can see a lot of scalp at the front of my head. Can anyone recommend any shampoos and conditioners that would be good? Thanks!

    Sigh. I'm noticing a few more errant white hairs on the sides lately. My already light brown hair is looking lighter the last few weeks, but I *think* it's just from being in the sun a lot more. I hope, anyway. My dad started going gray in his 20's but everyone else in my family kept their hair naturally free of noticeable gray hair much later than that.

    I suppose it's better than losing hair, but hell, I'm 26. I'm not ready to be distinguished looking.

    Buy the 4 piece full kit from living proof http://www.livingproof.com/full/ Watch the videos on the website on how to use the thickening cream.
    Hey man, look at Steve Martin :) If you decide to conceal it, always go lighter. Get blond shades of coloring if you feel the need, it'll blend in naturally with your light brown hair. It can look good, but it'll also be something you'll have to keep up with every few weeks in order to touch up the gray roots. Always use tint brushes to apply the dye: [​IMG]
