Learn how to style a Faux Hawk with gel and hair cream for a workable finish that can be reshaped without losing it’s hold through out the day. Start by applying a drop Zorian Of New York firm hold gel. Our specialty blend firm hold gel is alcohol free and contains aloe vera to keep your skin and hair moisturized while avoiding flaking.

Before and after the class stop by booth number 210 for live cutting demonstrations, product specials, and to meet Greg and some of his team members.
In this barber video tutorial learn how to cut and style short men’s clipper cut. Begin by cutting the top with the barber shear over comb technique. For thick hair follow up with the thinning shear over comb technique. Next, fade the sides with a 3 ½ metal blade down to a 1 ½ blade. Keep the fade below the temples. Touch up the blend with the clipper over comb technique using a 1 ½ blade for a more blended cut. Fade out the neckline with an adjustable clipper starting in the longest setting down to the shortest and finish off with an outliner.
Style the hair forward with a slight flip up in the front. Start by applying a drop Zorian Of New York firm hold gel. Our gel is a specialty blend gel is alcohol free and contains aloe vera to keep your skin and hair moisturized while avoiding flaking. Using a hair dryer dry the hair forward and then up in front. This will mold the hair into place.
Next, use the Zorian of New York Shaping paste which is very easy to work with. It emulsifies like a cream without clumping in your hands or your hair and has a very strong hold. The Zorian of New York shaping paste is also infused with the powerful antioxidant vitamin E which helps to keep your hair and scalp healthy. It also contains rosemary which will keep your hair and scalp moisturized. Emulsify a full fingertip portion in your hands. Rub throughout the hair by pushing it forward and then back getting the product down to the roots for extra hold. Finally, push the hair back down forward and push up in the front with a little bit of a messy texture look.
The Comb over with hard part is the most popular haircut in the barbering world today. I have been in the industry as a service provider and educator for over two decades and it is always interesting and fun to keep up with the changes on the classic haircuts. This particular cut when I started was referred to as a regular boy’s haircut. Now with the modern/retro twist (this is actually a 1920’s style) the name has changed and so have some of the techniques. Such as when I started no one would ever think of taking a straight razor and shave in the part area. Also, pomades were just starting to get popular but most haircuts were styled with gel, hair spray, or a combination of the two.
In this video you will learn many different barbering techniques including: barber shear over comb, thinning shear over comb, fading, blending, and straight razor shaving. You will also learn the finer points on the hand dexterity necessary for these techniques. In other words: how to hold the comb, shears, clippers, and straight razor properly allowing for the correct posture as well as optimum finished results.
For this particular haircut we have combined three different styles into one: a side part, an ivy league, and a hard part. The side part is self-explanatory. A classic young man’s haircut. The Ivy League takes it a step further. We cut the crown off and blend it to the top making it much easier to style. Works especially well for young children with difficult cowlicks and just want to get up and go. Lastly, the hard part. We first cut in the part with the trimmer and follow up with the straight razor. In this case we used our Zorian Of New York Shave Gel to get a nice clean line. It is a thick transparent gel infused with aloe vera and shea butter to form a protective barrier between the skin and razor and allow for ultimate comfort without razor burn.
Finally, to complete the finish product comes the styling portion. Very few short haircuts look good without spending some time styling and using one or two products. To get the perfect finished looked we created the shape by blowing drying the hair into place with a small amount of our Zorian Of New York firm hold gel. This will give the straight hair some body and mold difficult hair into place. Lastly, we apply the Zorian Of New York water soluble classic pomade for a high shine which will make the hard part stand out even more and give the hair a strong hold that will last all day. It is very important that the hair is completely dry when the pomade is applied. If the hair is slightly damp it will dilute the product and will not firm up and give the hair a firm hold.
