Volume makes it more modern.
Work-appropriate hair usually falls into either one of two categories: safe or routine (or both). The latest trends, which admittedly can be really inspirational, can also sometimes be tricky to integrate into our day-to-day office hair looks. Which is why at All Things Hair, we love styles that aim to put a modern spin on classics, such as a blown out combover haircut.
We realized that there are still some male readers out there who have yet to master hairstyling with a blowdryer (it sure took us awhile too). This being the case, we’ve put together a clear, concise tutorial to help you get more volumized versions of your everyday looks, starting with the combover.
This version of the combover haircut is just like the original slicked side fade, but carries a tad more lift at the crown. It’s mainly achieved via the help of a blowdryer, and results in a look that’s polished and corporate, yet also hip and youthful-looking—words we’re pretty sure you’d never have associated with a combover haircut, like, ever.
