The slick back will suit guys with straight long hair although wavey hair can also be style like a slick back but will need to be straightened for a better hold. Firstly, start by washing hair with a shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo will wash out any residue left from products and remove excess oil and buildup, which is the last thing you need when doing a slick back. The conditioner will add moisture to the hair allowing for more control and versatility which is needed for a slick back.
Products to style with
We recommend you use a pomade weather its water based or oil based does not really matter, each has its own positives and negatives. A great Pomade to use is Uppercut Deluxe Pomade. It’s a well-known Pomade brand and one of their products from their product line. This product has a sweet vanilla aroma with a firm hold and easy to wash out. An all-around great product.
The slick back can be worn on any occasion whether it’s a formal event or not. That’s why its so great!
The French crops is another one of these hairstyles that have always been seen on guys all year round no matter which year. The French crop is a short back and side with a medium fade. It suits most hair types, straight, curly, afro or coarse hair. The top will need to a bit short and the fringe kept a little longer.
How to style?
Its also easy to style, it's not really meant for neat hairstyles, it works great with messy hairstyles without much effort needed in the morning. Products such as waxes or clays with medium to low hold will be great. The sides will need to be faded every 2 to 3 weeks to allow the fade to show.

The buzz cut can be adapted to the different face shapes, so go to a professional barber. They will cut your hair the right size which suits you and your face. Men with a smaller face may suit shorter sides whereas men with a bigger face may not so leave it to the professionals.
Even though we recommend not using any products on a buzz cut a molding crème will be great to mold your hair as short hair can be stubborn and prone to frizziness therefore this product will help. Remembering that a little really does go along way with short hair.
