This is different from the plastered down Mad Men style or the ubiquitous gravity-defying pomp – it’s the tousled, perfectly imperfect sweet spot in between. Think the easy style of a guy who quickly swept his bangs off his forehead, but then had it fall into the perfect selfie-ready coif!
HOW TO PULL IT OFF
To get this style’s floppy, pliant quality, your hair will need to be fairly fine. If it is, tell our barbers to cut to about half an inch on the sides and leave at least four inches on top.
HOW TO STYLE IT
After showering and towel-drying your hair, rub a quarter-size dollop of hair cream between your palms. With your fingers, pull your hair sideways and backward from its natural part. You can also use a leave-in conditioner, or even hand lotion in a pinch.
The top should feel long enough that it could potentially get sloppy but be styled right back with a push of the fingers.
