    Easy Slick Back - How To Cut
    The Pompadour, or Pomp for short, is a hairstyle that has proven to be timeless since its conception in the 1700’s. The Pomp’s styling principles have always remained the same, and it has become a popular men’s hairstyle in recent times. Barbers of today combine the Pomp’s original styling technique with short back and sides, to create what is now known as the Easy Slick Back. This look can be styled in various ways, but it is most commonly worn high, with hair slicked back from the fringe area to the back of the head. The Pomp element brings height and definition to this style, whilst the slick back gives it a refined and sleek finish. How To Cut An Easy Slick Back

  5. Modern Textured Quiff With Fade - How To Cut
    Modern Textured Quiff With Fade - How To Cut
    Generally regarded as a hybrid style, the quiff takes inspiration from more traditional 1950’s styles like the pompadour, the flat top and in some instances the mohawk. The quiff by simple definition is hair lifted upwards and backward from the forehead. As the style evolved over the years the length on the top of the head was counterbalanced with a short fade around the base of the head. In this particular example of the quiff features a short length of textured hair throughout the top section giving the hair a spiky finish. Easy to style and maintain, the Textured Quiff is a go to style for many none fuss groomers. How To Cut A Modern Textured Quiff with Fade
