The process would be more involved with longer and denser hair. Firstly, make sure that your hair is damp before applying the product. To get a perfect slick back haircut, you need to use both a hairdryer and a comb at the same time. The hairdryer needs to be set up at the lowest setting. You use your hairdryer while trailing the comb slightly toward the side. If you want your haircut to stay longer, style it from front to back. 

Things will come with a complication when you want to create a slick back haircut on curly follicles. Make your hair damp to have a brush run through your hair and remember to trace it with a blowdryer. Don’t forget to regularly spray your hair with sea-salt spray to maintain the texture, then leave it for natural dryness. Once everything is ready, slick your hair back using your fingers, now you get a perfect slick back hairstyle. 

Things may fail, you know. In this case, nothing better than visiting the barber.

Then this is time for a pretty shiny slick back haircut with pomade. For years, it has also maintained a reputation by the steady hold. We have 2 types of pomade for different purposes: oil-based pomade for more shine and stronger hold and water-based pomade for the ease of rinsing out. 


Sounds like a product from your teenage, right? Teenagers prefer this a lot due to its low price but when they achieve adulthood, it is often left behind.

Hairspray also comes with no difference.
