It’s great that his thick, curly hair is able to hold a lot of texture and show disconnection in some areas without him looking like he doesn’t care. He cares about the style and flow of his hair. However, the messy, gritty styling complements the rest of his outfit better than a shorter cut that requires more attention.

A good haircut is the last piece of your image that unites you. That’s what I believe. It can be both practical and visually appealing.

Because he is currently growing out his hair, we decided to cut it medium-length. Graduation was used to gain weight along the sides, while maintaining a strong vertical shape that isn’t too round. Then I used point cutting for texture. It can be difficult to grow long hair without making your head look bigger and more round. This is why it’s important to keep your sides well shaped to avoid that awkward phase everyone talks about.

The awkward phase refers to hair that is too long, too heavy, too long, or too short. Although it doesn’t look great down, it won’t be long enough to create a ponytail. It is real and it hurts. It’s important to see someone who can properly shape and trim your hair when you reach that stage. Otherwise, you’ll end up at Target looking for cheap clippers that will buzz your head and ruin your long hair. We can help you get through this awkward phase.

How to request a medium-length haircut

If your hair is longer than usual and you wish to achieve a look like this one, tell your barber that you would like more structure and length. You can tell them that you would like your hair to be swept back at the sides. Remember natural growth patterns, as well as the thickness, density, texture and color of hair. Your barber will ensure that the haircut you choose matches your hair style, hair texture, and bone structure.

This can sometimes mean that the look of someone else may not be the right one for you. However, your barber will ensure that the cut you get is just right for you. Let your Barber know that you prefer the edges to be soft and natural. Also, let them know if you will be styling your hair.

How to style your hair

This one is easy with Pomade or Beard Oil. You can’t forget your beautiful beard! Before styling hair with a blow dryer, apply a little clay and then added another layer of clay to hold it in place. Focus the airflow on the direction that you want your hair to flow when blow drying it. You can control the hair with a brush. After you have applied the Matte Clay to the ends, you can adjust the position of the sides and the interlaces.
