This is for the man who runs a 5K before heading to a black-tie event. You know who we are talking about. He’s always on the go and he is always looking his best.

HOW-TO STEPS

1

After the hair has been shampooed and dried, use the Esquire Clipper with the #1 comb attachment and the lever closed. Create a medium fade in the temple area with a C-stroke motion.

2

When completed, open the lever and continue to fade upward 1/4-inch continuing with the C-stroke motion.

3

Next, replace the #1 guard with the #2 guard attachment and fade upward another 1/4-inch, continuing with the same C-stroke motion.

4

Using scissors, trim the top area to finger length. For added texture use thinning shears throughout the top area.

5

Using the Esquire Trimmer with the T-Blade attachment, shape the neckline and groom ear hairs using a corner technique.

6

Continue Step 5.

7

To begin styling, apply a small amount of the Esquire Shaper for a strong hold and low shine. Distribute evenly.

8

Using the Esquire Hand Brush Dryer, dry the top section smooth while creating some texture.
