We created this look for Ryan in the style of Zac Stenmark’s runway look for Calvin Klein Collection, menswear Fall 2012. Ryan’s hair is very thick with a slight wave so we had to leave it long enough on top to achieve the slicked back style.
Lee tapered out the back and sides freehand using clipper-over-comb with a steep graduation. The top was only slightly trimmed and checked through to keep the length and the neckline was tapered out reasonably short.
It was graduated quite steeply on the sides to retain some weight around the crown in order to hold the style in place. Lee thinned the hair on top all the way through to avoid the curl in Ryan’s hair creating too much height.
After Ryan’s cut, his hair was blow dried without height or body. We finished the style by adding a side part and using Lock, Stock & Barrel’s Gooch Hair Gum to give it that slicked back look!
