    Hi everyone,
    This is my first post, so hope I've attached the picture correctly. I'd appreciate any input on how to achieve this hairstyle, both in type of cut to request and type of product/styling to give it this look. Thanks for your feedback!

    ^Bring that photo into the barber shop, best bet. And I've been using pomade/fiber to style and hair spray to hold.

    I'm beginning to remember why I went two years without a cut, it's barely been two weeks and I already need a trim.

    Any thoughts on what I should do with my hair?

    I apologize for the awful quality pictures of my awful hair (I didn't shower today, exam time) and my ugly mug.

    I have no idea what to do with my hair. I basically just shower, towel dry, and that's that.

    Umm guys, get hairstyles that fit your style and look. You will not look like Pitt or Clooney just because you get a shitty haircut that sort of but not really looks like theirs.

    On another less acerbic note, I find that my hair looks best with my natural oils aka dirty hair. I shampoo about twice in 10 days.

    How would I go about re-creating this hairstyle?

    What kind of face shape is required for this? I don't even know how to qualify mine.

    Take the picture to whoever cuts your hair.

    Guys,it's best to find a ugly guy with the hair cut you want to use for an example because it can only go up from there.

    Truth x 1000.

    Any hairstyle will look good on a model. That's why they use models. Put some effort into identifying what hairstyle will look good on you...factors include face shape, hairline (notice how most models have a perfect hairline?), bone structure, etc.

    Merry x-mas! I have four questions:
    What is this hairstyle called?
    Would you suggest it on someone with a rounder face?
    And should I go to a barber or a salon to get it?
    What do I tell the person to do? (i.e. layering, styling etc.)
    Thank you and happy holidays!

    its a classic short back and sides. if you have normal or finer hair, you could go to a barber and you'll be fine. if you have thicker or more difficult texture, i'd go to an experienced stylist bc they should know different techniques to make your hair look like the picture even if your hair isn't the same texture as the guy in the picture - like different texturizing techniques to make things lay down correctly.

    Ok, This hair is very simple it looks like finger length on sides and back and about 3 - 4 inches up top. I would use a nice wax product (I like Bed Head for men Matte Separation Workable Wax) And a nice hairspray, use a light amount that way it stays but isn't rock hard. Im a stylist and its a pretty common cut. Sometimes its all in the style rather than the cut.

    Post a pic of your face if not take the pic to a stylist that you trust and know will tell you the truth.

    This hair cut is a simple mens cut and inch to inch and half on the sides and back about 4 - 5 inches on top. The I style my hair like this but its a little shorter right now. I use and good quality mens wax and if you want it to stay all day a good quality hairspray. Not too much spray.
