Bieber showed off his hair flip at a fan meet and greet in Germany on Friday, April 5th. MODERN asked Rodrick Samuels, owner of Profile Barber Institute and Andis Educator how to achieve a similar look on your clients. He recommends using the Andis Maven. "This look is a very cool cut for summer months. I predict to see it all over the place!" says Samuels.


STEP 1: Take a horizontal subsection from the back parting at the nape about 1-inch thick. Use a #2 guard and clipper out at a 45-degree angle.

STEP 2: Using the same #2, shave out these sections. Connect the lower back shaved section with these ones, utilizing a classic men's barbering shape (in a C shape around the ear).

STEP 3: Style with a light pomade or holding spray for texture and defintion.
