Street style is one of the best sources of men's hair inspiration. Whether you're looking for something right on-trend, a timeless classic or a combination of the two, you're basically guaranteed to find it. Recently, this slick undercut style caught our attention and we think it's an edgy look worth investing in.
Undercuts are big business right now, enjoying a definite 'moment' in the limelight. It's a versatile look that allows you to make your face appear longer – thanks to the length on top – and leaves plenty of scope for adding height while showcasing your natural texture. The only strike against it is the fact you have to keep the sides and back perfectly trimmed, which means regular appointments with your stylist.
With the balance firmly tipped in favor of this style, you might be wondering how you could pull off a slick version of it yourself, just like the guy in the photo opposite.
How to style
For starters, you need to keep a lot of length on top with the sides kept at buzz cut level.
Once the cut has been taken care of, apply some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty evenly throughout the top section of your hair. Add more as you go until you have a good amount of hold, then run a comb from one side to the other to smooth it into place. You want to pomp to skim your hairline, giving the style some added height. To really boost volume, use a hairdyer to lift the hair at the root then apply a little more putty and shape with your hands.
What do you think? Could this be your new go-to style?
