Fashion trends come and go, as do hairstyles and haircuts. The slick haircut was a popular look in the '60s, and it is gradually returning but with a few modern modifications. Male celebrities and models can be seen sporting this stylish and chic hairstyle.
The Slick Back
This type of haircut can be styled in various ways depending on the type of hair that you have. For straight hair, cut the hair short at the sides and back, but leave the top a little longer to allow it to be easily styled and slicked back using a gel or similar hairstyling product. For wavy hair, trim the top a little to control the wave so that styling it will come easier. This type of haircut is not recommended for men with curly hair.
The fringe haircut comes in a variety of cuts and styles: the wet, swept and curly fringe. This haircut is ideal for any hair type. This haircut allows you to cut your fringe, also called bangs, depending on your preferred length. The sides and back should be cropped short. To style a fringe haircut, you can either have the fringe swept a little to one side of your forehead or cut the fringe into layers then sweep it in front covering your entire forehead.
The crew cut is considered to be a practical hairstyle for the modern man. To get this cut, shave the sides and back of your hair. Then, cut the top and crown part of your hair to about half an inch. To style this type of hair, apply gel or any hairstyling product on the top where the hair is longer.
Another haircut that is slick and fashionable is the textured haircut. The back and sides of the hair is cut very short. A razor or shears are used to give the top a textured layer. This haircut may take a lot of time to style. This haircut is ideal for men who have coarse hair. This is best styled when the hair is damp. Rub gel or styling wax in the hair, then style it in whatever way you want.
