    It's the Don Draper meets Hitler youth undercut. Don't worry - I've got the same haircut. I have them use only scissors, since I like to keep the sides a little longer, rather than super close cropped. But if you're going to go to a salon where they only use scissors, go to a good one. I've been going to Vidal Sassoon for years, and I can only recommend the crispness of the cut.

    Ooops...sorry for the multiple posts. Not sure what happened there.

    Anyway, it seems like if they only use scissors, sometime the sides and back aren't quite as neat as I'd like. The #6 leaves a bit on around the sides/back, and if they can blend the top in with scissors, it seems pretty decent. Sort of like the style of Tom Cruise in Top Gun...just a typical men's side part, or maybe like Nathan Fillion on Castle (but a little shorter on top).

    Where did you get the leather jacket?

    details on the belt? I have a NF version of what you have on but I am no longer fond of the "aging" aspect.

    I would like for my hair to stay "damp" throught the day, does anyone know of a product I can use to create this effect? I would like for it to lay a little more flat in some areas. I am using a stay in conditioner but it gets dry after about 6 hours, I do not want my hair to be hard either. Here are the pictures of me wearing the headband, let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks.

    Does it make your hair hard?

    Does it weigh your hair down?

    I don't need more volume lol, looking for something to keep it from poof-ing as well.

    Not sure how it would work on curly hair, but pomade would probably give you the shiny, wet look. The American Crew stuff is supposed to be pretty good.

    Personally, I'd lose the headband.

    i've been trying this whole not washing my hair with shampoo very often thing and i'm liking it so far. for you guys who work out though, do you still only wash it with shampoo once or twice a week? my hair can get pretty sweaty working out, seems like i should still be washing it post workout?

    I run and I do not shampoo my hair everyday. I do it once every week, sometimes every other week. Conditioner does a good job of cleaning your hair in my opinion.

    Can someone recommend a stay in conditioner that will keep my hair moist all day, weigh it down a bit, and not make my hair hard.

    is there a particular product that you are referring too?

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

    For those of you that use hair wax (gel, clay, whatever), do you wash it out before bed? So in total you shampoo your hair twice a day? Such a nuisance and I'm sure it's not good for your hair. But neither would leaving it in... what to do

    I use clay and hairspray lately and just brush my hair in the evening. Definitely helps for the hairspray and I think for the clay, too, but most likely it's just psychological. I guess you could rinse your hair, it should remove a lot, even without soap. Then dry your hair with a towel (and you'll remove even more of the wax/gel/whatevz).
