4. High-Fashion Edgy Quiff

We know this look isn’t something you’d wear on your average day, but isn’t it slick? We love this fashion-forward look even if you only bust it out on special occasions. To get this level of shine without making your hair harden into a helmet, use a gel or high-shine pomade, like Axe Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade all over the top of your hair. Then comb the sides upwards and direct the center downwards towards your neck to complete the look.
