And once the look is complete, we recommend suggesting a cleaner-looking shave to keep the attention on his hair. Here’s how to make the look come to life.

HOW-TO STEPS

1

Create a horseshoe parting at the top of the head following the partial ridge. Next, create a guideline in the center back holding the hair at a 90-degree angle.

 

2

Cut the hair following a traveling guide from the center back to behind the ear.

 

3

Repeat on the other side and in the back, keeping your hands palm-to-palm.

 

4

Connect the temple area to the guideline behind the ear to create increased length.

 

5

Connect the top middle part to the length below the crown area to create a stationary guide. Cut using gradation for a soft perimeter.

 

6

Using a stationary guide from the crown, connect to the front perimeter.

 

7

Cut the perimeter at the sides and nape.

8

Detail the perimeter with The Esquire Five Piece Trimmer.

 

9

Apply The Esquire Texture Gel for hold.

10

Finish styling/drying the hair with The Esquire Brush Dryer.
