As far as short hairstyles go, this one is a bit higher maintenance, but it’s worth it. The biggest issue is just keeping the volume in the front.

To achieve the cut, go shorter on the sides with layered length on top. To style it, comb pomade back from the forehead. Then, blow dry the hair back and up in order to create some height. Once it’s dry, use your fingers and a bit more product to give it separation.

To achieve this cut, try Esquire Grooming's Five Piece Trimmer set which provides power, precision, control and versatility. Interchange any of the five grooming blades for a well-groomed look around the tightest curves and toughest crevices.

To best achieve this style, try Esquire Grooming's Pomade – it helps redefine your client’s hairstyle by creating a sleek and polished look. It provides light-hold, medium-shine and it's water soluble.
