At this point, men around the world aren’t strangers to undercut hair. In fact, we’re waging that you, your friends—heck, even your neighborhood barista—have probably all had a version of it at some point in the last two years. No doubt: It’s a look that has swag in spades and, bonus, isn’t all that hard to style either… provided you’ve got the goods. See below for our step-by-step tutorial for how to style undercut hair, and don’t forget to click on the video:
Tutorial: Furious Undercut Hair with Simone
Blow-dry your hair with a brush.
Use a vent brush (you know, one with those open slats) for easy drying and to help infuse volume and body at the root of your hair. This is especially true if you’ve just showered (and if so, we love the extra-clean freshness hair gets after a rinse with AXE Phoenix 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner).
Rub some pomade between hands.
Take a small finger-swipe or dime-sized drop of pomade, like AXE Signature Smooth Look: Shine Pomade, and rub between your palms. This warms the product up and makes it apply more evenly.
Rake it back.
Lightly smooth hair back with fingers for a slick, yet still semi-casual finish. Don’t overthink it: Use the tips of your fingers for a slightly rake-y, tousled look.
