Jerika Vliet-Glass, stylist at Jude's Barbershop Grand Haven, Michigan, submitted to MODERN this classic 1920s-inspired men's hairstyle with a customized side-part. "This style is a great example of fading hair and disconnection of the top and sides," says Vliet-Glass. "To get the slicked back look, I used pomade, but you can also use a water-based wax for hold."
