Styling Tips: the Undercut

The first article about the Undercut was, for me somewhat surprising, very popular with many readers and I got a lot of questions & suggestions sent. Reason enough to give the topic a few words again and to go into detail.

Before that, I would like to refer to the hairstyle guerilla for men, which contains other interesting, stylish hairstyles for the modern man. Just click on the photo below and you’ll land directly with the currently fashionable hair styles.

In the first article, I talked about the origins and history of the Undercuts, but also how different youth cultures undercut the Undercut. Here at GRANTHAMGUIDES you can get more fashion hairstyles. I also showed pictures of myself and how I myself wear the undercut. Then I received some e-mails, in which readers wanted to know from me which styling routine I use for my natural undercut. So I would like to introduce you today which products I use and how you get a similar result.

Undercut Volume Is Here Trump

“Front short and long back”. -Today it is called “on the sides short and up long”

The undercut is characterized by the fact that there is a contrast between the “narrow” sides and the voluminous “upper hair”. Not everyone has naturally full, powerful and voluminous hair. For the hair’s length exceeds a certain degree, the hair no longer stands by itself, and is pressed flat by its weight. Now you could shorten the upper coat, of course, so that the hair stands by itself, or you can use modern styling products to counter this effect.

Styling For The Undercut

I am using products from AMERICAN CREW, these have proved to me in the daily application and I am highly satisfied with it, but it should also be any other “volume powder” or “light gel” from other manufacturers suitable.

Products used

Important for the perfect styling of the undercut are once freshly washed hair. After washing, the hair should only be dried briefly with a towel and then thoroughly combed.

First, we take care of the basis for a voluminous appearance of the hair. To do this, repeat steps 2-4x:

With a comb, into your still damp hair, pull a crest and spread a small amount of the “boost powder” along the apex on the scalp.Spread the powder with a finger on the scalp. This ensures that your hair starts from the root, is “repelled” by other hair and thus creates volume. I myself need three vertexes (left, right, center) to get an optimal result. However, this can vary from user to user and hair type to hair type.

As a second step, I take the “Light Hold Styling Cream”  and work it into the still damp hair. This later provides for a light definition of the hair and keeps the volume powder in check. Then we take the hair dryer / hair dryer and dry our hair on low level. For this we take strands of strands with your fingers and pull them in the direction in which they are to fall later. Especially on the sides one should be careful and the strands always pull towards the middle, otherwise the hair “break out” in the dry condition and fall down at the side.

Finishing The Undercut

One should not dry the hair with the hair dryer up to the last, but only in form. Drive with your hands through the hair and form a natural look together with the residual moisture. The residual moisture may then still dry naturally. If you are too generous with the volume powder, or want to have a little less volume, you can now again define the hair with a light wax and remove the volume.

On hairspray, I renounce completely, since individual strands can move quietly something and if necessary a short handle through the hair again everything right.

The best thing about the application and the products used is that they leave no visible traces and unfold their effect for several days.This keeps the volume for 2-3 days and by the natural greasing of your hair you get enough definition to be able to dispense with further products. I’ve been using this styling routine for more than half a year for my undercut and am thrilled.

The volume powder and the work associated with it may seem a bit daunting at first, but if you have got used to it, and have gathered some experience, everything is easier than you think. I need only about 5 minutes, until my hair sit perfectly!

If someone was inspired by this article to try out this styling routine, I would love to share your experiences with me in the comments! Otherwise, you can also use the “Like” button if you liked the article.

The product used is the Lock Stock & Barrel Pucka Grooming Cream 60g.
