Styleguide: Slickback

What is a slickback?

The slickback haircut remains one of the most popular hairstyles for men. With a modern slicked back haircut, men combine a low or high fade with long hair on top to create a stylish and bold hairstyle.

Does a slickback suit you?

A slickback haircut is one that will look good regardless of your face shape. With a slickback, it does not matter whether you have a round, square, diamond-shaped or elongated face. The slickback will give you a soft, yet tough look. Some hair types - such as thick and coarse hair - are less suitable for the slickback haircut. Do you have thinner hair that is easy to comb in one direction? Then you are lucky!
