Asian hair usually falls on the fine or super straight end of the spectrum, so achieving hairstyles like this can seem tricky, but it can be done. To recreate the look, use a pomade on dry hair to give your style hold and control. Smooth AXE Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade through your hair to slick it back. Next, use a fine-toothed comb to remove any excess and to evenly distribute the product throughout hair. Finally, use the tail of your comb to lift your top section at the root to create your pomp, and you’re done!
