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.
