    If you want a style along the lines of what you posted, just ask them to put in a part (usually lined up around the middle of the eyebrow on the side it's on) and leave it long on top but clean on the sides. Just ask them what they'd suggest as far as how short to go and how to shape it up through the sides for your head shape or just do some more searching and find what you think would work. At my barber shop it's tough to get them to leave it longer on top than they usually do when I get a skin fade while I'm trying to grow it out, it's just how they cut medium length hair I guess, it's always a good shape and proportion though so it works.

    I used to have somewhat of an undercut that was pretty long on top for a while just over a year ago or so. Used to get my haircut at this lady I knows house, she worked at a salon and had a nice setup in her basement at home too, for me it's always seemed that she/women in general cut long hair and messy styles better and barber shops are better for simple clean cuts of short to medium length, especially if clippers are involved. I've been trying to get this style back for a while but I've been getting the sides buzzed to a skin fade and I like to take it back down every 2 weeks and the barber shop always trims the top when they do the fade to make it work so it doesn't get much longer than it was by the next time.

    When I had this I would ask her to leave like 2-3 inches on top and then the sides were about a 3-5 clipper length or so. I think she did some layering and other shit for texture that the barbers usually don't, one time one dude gave me trouble for asking him to point cut it to add texture, he did it for me but it's just not what they usually do there, and that's why I think it's good to find a lady you know or some shit to cut certain styles over going to a barber shop.

    Here's some pictures of the old cut I had over a length of time. The only one that isn't from over a year ago is the bottom one and that's a grown out fade I had just a few months back.

    What I tried to explain is that, yes, some variation of the long parted top cut will work for you, just ask whoever cuts your hair what would work best for your head for a style along those lines. Just about any hair style can be adjusted for any person, at least I'd think so to some extent.

    it should work great!

    as for the whirl, little bit of product and holding it down in place while u blow dry should tame the beast.

    The company I work for (Thermafuse, in salon only) has an awesome product called tac and another called Formatte, both are amazing for control and definition.

    Have anyone used Baxter Of California product? I'm thinking of getting the clay pomade and daily moisturizer. And how does the clay pomade compare to Uppercut clay pomade?

    I also got a big whirl right where the parting ends by the top / back of my head. Just leave a little more length up top and you'll most be fine. Whirls only cause me problem when the hair is cut very short, making the hair around the whirl poof out. Keep some more length and the weight of the hair will do its job.

    I'd also say that the haircut would look better if it wasn't as aggressive and short. I like to keep my top around 3" with the bangs just a bit longer and make the sides gradually taper to very short around the ears. Keeping more length makes the haircut a lot less risky, since it doesn't expose your head shape as much. You can always make adjustments next time you get it cut.

    heh, this is exactly what i usually do. im tempted to get it super short on the sides because it looks cool when it connects to beard.

    Ok.
    I think super short sides work best if you've got thick wavy, curly or any kind of movement in your hair that presses it down on the scalp. My hair is not very thick and is completely straight with no movement at all, so when I cut it very short on the sides the hairs tend to stand right out. Not a very good look since you can see through the hairs and in to the scalp.

    Anyone have any hair style suggestions for guys with widows peaks? I'm looking for something professional (no mullets or mohawks).

    Soo i've let my hair grow out for awhile now and it's pretty long but it's really un manageable (even after getting rid of the dry problem). I wanna keep it long but I need some suggestions. I was thinking pretty much getting it short on the sides (not buzz, just scissors) and back but long on top (especially the bangs, large forehead :p) but idk how it will look with my wavy thick hair. I was considering getting them to thin it with thinning shears but idk how it would look considering a do have a larger forehead. No picture, but just remember thick and wavy lol.

    Oval face. Maybe keep the top length the same and go buzz cut short on the sides and back. Drastic change

    Hey. Now I have had the same haircut for quite a while now and I have a particular one I like. I have this picture and I was hoping you kind people could possibly advice me on how to possibly do this step by step. Before I give the link I will say that my hair is quite thin and straight with slight wave or curves at the end, very much like his in the picture and I would also like to point out his hair looks some what thick unlike mine and how would I then get the same look as someone with thick hair.

    please include, products needed, order in which steps I do first, The length I should have on my hair in detail and any kind of particular tools to do so eg, comb, brush, straightner etc

    Cheers Gus :)
