Remember those suave Hollywood actors from the 1920s who made quite a presence on screen? They even had long, torrid love affairs with the age old beauties of that era. They were mavericks at a time when TV was still in black and white – men who knew what they wanted, knew what kind of look they could wear best and knew how to make their presence felt. It really was a fascinating time.
Today, you can bring back that era and even sport the haircut that lorded at the time. Presenting – the Slick Back, the cut that was sported by business moguls, public figures and, yes, even the Hollywood mavericks in the 1920s. The Slick Back haircut is versatile and can actually suit any age – from young boys to adults.
The Slick Back is essentially a classic short back and sides with highlighted side parting. No use of razors. Just scissored all over. The top is longer and then styled into a cool quiff. This classic men’s haircut works best with finer hair but those with curly hair can still rock this look – just use the proper hair products that can tame down the waves. Ideally, aqua-based pomades should be used for that sleek and shine finish. You can also set the top with hair spray. Don’t forget to use a wide tooth comb to get those line effects.
