Well I have no idea what you look like.

So I'm going to give the old generic, tried and trusted, side parting. It never goes out of style, and suits all face shapes.

2-4 inches on top depending on how easy your hair is to manage.
Blended up from a 0.5/1.

When I worked in a shop our rate was £8.50/$12

My brother got me work in the TV and film industry, as he works for channel 4. So I'm on the hair team on various channel 4 shows and occasionally bigger studios.


Apologise and give them their money back was the usual protocol. Of course we had to have liability insurance if anything else went wrong.


I am white, and yes I can cut black hair.


I was here a few months ago and I created an infographic.


Use your mutuality. You're getting your hair cut, she's cutting your hair. Start the conversation from their. It's a very laid back atmosphere in most cases and you can just have a laugh. Try to be funny. Don't be afraid to make fun of yourself.

I'm not sure what you mean by assistant, maybe she's just a volunteer sweeping and stuff looking for a way into the business. If so, request that she cut your hair.

Your hair looks very manageable so you can do a whole range of things with it.
But the whole justin bieber phase has long passed so I agree with the "less hair" in your face.

I actually think you would suit a swept back look. Cut it a little shorter than in your pic.
Then grab some pomade and sweep it all back and give it an off centre parting. Use your fingers for separation and texture.

Something similar to my pic related, but more texture.


I don't think any less of them. There's not much that can be done.

All hair genetics are passed down from the men on your mother side.


>Believing no poo has any worthwhile benefits


When did I go?

I've been lurking, anon.


Very hard to tell from the picture but your hair looks very curly.
Eccentric curly styles are hard to pull of. But you could always go for it. If not you can try chemical relaxation on your hair.

I've never done hollyoaks.

I just google searched it. You need very fine hair and a fringe.
If your hair is thicker, grab some thinning scissors, twist your hair and take 2/3 snips, do this all the way round.

Then get a matte clay and brush the front of your hair up, either fingers or brush.

Honestly, coconut products are the essentials. Anything else is not needed for great hair.


Hitler youth is just an undercut.
That's what you need to ask for.

No poo may work in some cases, but a lot of the time, the shitty hygiene that comes with it causes a lot of problems. Acne being one of them.


Hair grows 0.5" a month

You're looking at around 2-3 years.


Pic related. But grow it a bit longer on the sides, but not by much.


Come off the no poo. You're doing yourself no favours as their is no decent way of removing product like that.


It varies from person to person.

How can I keep my hair not parting in the middle? Whenever I try to pull out the look in the picture, it looks picture perfect right after the make up session but rather soon (30min) the hair will weight down and have that ridiculous parting in the middle I can't fix anymore by hand so I swipe it all to other side.

I normally blowdry my hair and use the hairbond moulder product, I guess it's some sort of wax, doesn't hold it all in place. I really really dislike hairspray but I've still tried it with no avail. Was I simply too gentle with it?

Your hair is very thick my friend.

2" on top
Grade 2/3 on sides.
Mess it up.


First off, confidence my friend.
There are people a million times worse. You're not that bad.

Pic related.
Take it to that length and play around with it to see what works.


Short back and sides
2-4" on top
Messy quiff or just any messy look with that length.

Use a matte hair product.
You'll be sweating a lot during your workouts and the matte look will help to combat your hair looking sweaty/greasy

alright barberfag, I could really use some help. I haven't managed to find a single decent barber near me, and at best can probably only vaguely emulate a picture'd haircut. None of them would be able to actually assist me in choosing a more specific style.
I like the direction my haircut is in now but it's very obviously just grown out from a buzzcut (which it was) so I guess what I'm asking is what kind of style could I go for that would maintain the current aesthetic but actually look somewhat decent. And the restriction being that it needs to be do-able by a mediocre-at-best barber

In general, if you have longer hair, I find it's easier to use at least two products: one to build the basic hold and texture you want and then another to finish. You can start with a softer creme to hold your hair into the shape you want and then finish with a styling produce that's thicker like a paste or whatnot and use that to do more precise styling.

I'm a 20 year old Asian guy who unfortunately has Male Pattern Baldness, with the 2a balding pattern. I still have hair but it's significantly thinning in the frontal and centre areas but very thick on the sides. Is there anything I can do?

inb4 shave it all off - I'm only 20! I want to look my age if that's possible. What do you recommend?

Be reborn with better genes

I have pretty good genes otherwise. I bodybuild, attend Harvard, and have a 100k job offer when I graduate. But my hair is something that has been bothering me.

Well, yeah. You're hair is probably dirty as fuck. I just use shampoo and conditioner every 4-5 days. Always rinse the hair with water to at least get some shit out.

>All hair genetics are passed down from the men on your mother side.

Seems I'm in luck then, both my uncles have good hair, my grandpa died at 54 with hair, my father was bald, I'm 27 and my hair seems healthy.

Are there cases of genetics fucking up this theory of the mother's side?

I'm in exactly the same situation; 21 and still no signs of impending baldness, all hairstylists comment on how incredibly thick my hair is; I'm hoping for the best...
