    Was experimenting over the weekend and realized that a good amount of cheap loreal studio gel + hairspray can create a quiff that holds all day.

    is there a particular reason why you like them?

    Is there a difference between 2T and 4T? (other than 155mm and 158mm)

    Getting ready to order 2 since I left my other two combes in ny.

    How long do you have the top? I want to do the same thing since my bangs/Cowlick work perfect for this. Thanks!

    I like them because they are hand cut. I also prefer larger combs, not pocket ones.

    I'll try to measure tonight but probably 4-5 inches on the top. I am still growing the top out...might be tempted to try the undercut once the top is long enough.

    I walked about a mile to get to the place that sells them, that is about the only "gym" I ever see.

    Nice, but too much product imo. Use something more matte.

    could be the pomade, but like PB said earlier if you run your fingers through as the day goes on it doesnt look like there is that much product in it...I also think that picture is making it look like I use more then I really do. Or I didnt blow dry it enough that day.

    Don't blow dry it. Just towel dry. I would also grow the top out slightly and grow more of a "crown" as the hair people call it in the back.

    I feel like blowdrying it is actually making my hair more straight and I am rubbing my fingers through it with the hand not holding the dryer...then I put a small amount of fiber where my part is to keep it down. Yea I am still trying to grow the top out more...but the guy did a decent job with my hair, better then I thought after leaving the place. I like how its growing in the last 2 weeks. Those pics were from friday so the hair cut was basically a week before them.

    Its still a work in progress I will try towel drying it though and see how that works. I only have the dryer on low when I am doing it.

    You should blow dry it after you put in product. Put it on low and on hot. Imo it fuses the product with the hair and creates more a hold. You'll notice most good stylists in salons/shoots do this.
