The cut: Ask your stylist for a combination clipper/scissor cut. The sides and back are extremely tight, graduating from 0″ to 1/8″ at the crown. The top can be point cut about 1/4″ to give texture and flexibility.
Styling: Shampoo and conditioner, towel dry hair and apply American Crew Pomade — yes, it does make a difference, especially with such short hair!

Whether you are home, in a meeting or at a barbecue, this fashion-forward look requires minimal styling. It’s perfect for hair with a slight wave or curl, as the top utilizes texture for volume and interest.
The cut: Ask your stylist for a tight clipper cut to the back and sides. The top should be scissor/razor cut to about 1″ in length. The amount of texture cut in depends upon your own hair’s curl or wave; the combination creates the volume, shape, and lasting style.
Styling: After a shampoo and conditioning with a cleansing shampoo, towel dry hair and apply a small amount of Baxter of California Clay pomade on the top of your hair for volume and texture. Shape, let dry, and you have a groomed look with plenty of character.
This next cut is a modern update of the classic “Flat Top and Fenders.”
This look is a bit adventurous and very individual; you won’t see it on everyone, yet its classic roots and great shape makes it a cut to consider. This style works best with straight or slightly wavy hair, as the cut relies on the texture of your hair to give it its shape and crispness. This built in texturizing also aides in carefree styling, a great time saver that ensures a polished finish.
