    Hello everybody, this is my first post here so, I'm sorry if it's in the wrong place. I'm 21 years old and live in Brazil. I'm growing my hair for 1 year and 9 months. I have a straight hair but it's very thick and full (sorry my bad english). About 2 weeks ago I wanted to change my hairstyle and starting looking for a new hairstyle to wear. I found some undercuts that I liked but I'm afraid to cut, after all, It takes me almost 2 years to grow my hair. Somebody has any suggestion of what should I do with my hair? Thanks all.

    Your hair looks fine. I don't like undercuts with long hair. There was a guy a few posts ago who did it and wants to grow it back out.

    Seems to work well with your style. I'm not a fan of the samurai look, but down it looks cool.

    @PhilippeLopes that looks good man I suggest a little longer on the sides and back though If you wanna keep some length, have them taper fade it also, and if you or anyone is interested I recently started a new YouTube channel just for hairstyles and products if you'd like tips and tricks on how to get healthy hair and products to use and stuff like that haha thanks guys! https://m.youtube.com/user/alexhawk761

    Looking for some advice. I have thick, straight hair that I wear in a short side part (pic for reference). It tends to get greasy and messy quickly, so looking for:

    • A shampoo that can cut through build-up (without murdering my scalp)
    • A cream that I can use for styling

    I'm currently using Aveda Grooming Clay, which I like because it leaves a relatively sheen-free, natural appearance. However, it lacks a bit in the hold department (a stray breeze renders me disheveled), and it seems to make my hair pretty greasy and limp by the end of the day. I assume both the shampoo and molding clay share blame for the excess grease and weight, but any insight and advice would be great. Thanks much.

    Have you tried blow drying your hair into place beforehand? I no longer style my hair, but when I did, Gatsby was always one of my go to brands. Try the purple or pink one. Grey if you manage to find it. These three leave a matte finish so it looks natural. Tip on cleaning it off before bed: Apply conditioner to hair first.

    Hairbond moulder and shaper are also options you may want to try. Always look for videos on Youtube beforehand to see if demonstrations of the product are available.

    edit: You might also want to apply product more close to the scalp for better hold.

    Interesting. Looks like there are plenty of eBay sellers offering the grey "Moving Rubber" Gatsby wax. For $10 might as well give it a shot. I appreciate the advice.

    I generally avoid blow-drying as it usually lends too much volume, making me look like I'm wearing a helmet.

    Hi all,

    First post in this thread so apologies if this has been asked/answered quite a few times.

    Looking for styling tips (both in method and product). Have relatively thick Asian hair, that use to be longer and styled in a pomp. Used a variety of pomades including Layrite, Suavecito, and Imperial Barber. Decided a change was in order and shortened my hair.. it's now approx. 2 inches on the top, sides still quite short.

    One of the things I disliked about the pomades were their high shine. With the shorter hair now, I kind of want the natural, 'wake up get out of bed but have nice hair still' look, and would prefer a product that could help achieve that. Can anyone recommend some? Was looking into the Layrite Cement Clay as an option. Some tips on how to apply the product/order or washing/product/drying etc etc would be helpful too.

    Thanks!

    I have been growing my hair out for the past year or so, and it's ~9-10". I have medical school interviews coming up, and need something on the more conservative side. I have tried the comb over, but it just does not work with my face (At least, IMO). I posted some pictures of my face and my current hair below. Any advice/suggestions would be great!

    Shorter like Trump's sons might be adequate, presuming interviewers either don't make the association or don't dislike the father. Not as much product as they use, however, please.

    What do you think of Davines Moulding Clay so far? My tin of Bed Head Separation wax is about to finish up and I just ordered this as an upgrade.

    I really like it so far. Much better than the Sebastian Craft Clay--but FYI I've got no other clays to compare it to. Good hold, matte finish. Smell is vanilla+bubble gum, but not that much sillage. Definitely smells better than that rancy-ish smell of Sebastian's clay. :satisfied:
