      Have your stylist cut your hair that is a bit longer on top if you have straight hair. If you have more of a wave to your hair, ask your stylist to cut the hair a bit shorter on top.

      Wash your hair. Comb it into the slicked-back look you are going for while it's still wet. If you choose to go without a part, pull the comb through the hair from the forehead to the back of the head, so it is all facing in one direction. If you opt for a part, part your hair and comb the hair away from the part, towards the back of your head. Let the hair air-dry.

      Use an organic or natural pomade product for the hair to keep it in place. Rub a quarter-sized amount of the pomade between your hands to warm it up so it is pliable.

      Apply the pomade to your hair by running your fingers from the forehead, through the hair to the back of your head.
