    I guess I have what you'd call a typical, side-part haircut, tapered on the sides and back with a few inches left on top. I've had them use only scissors before, but this time she used clippers on the sides and back, and scissors on the top. For those of you with similar cuts, what clipper guard # do you usually go with? She used a #6 around the sides and back, and then scissor cut the top, and it seems to be pretty reasonable. Just curious.

    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.

    does none of those things really, just makes it greasy looking, its what the straight haired greasers used back in the day, i have wavy / curly hair as well and i use it during the humid summer months in nyc when i don't want the snoop jew fro look.

    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.
