Cut and Style a Faux Hawk with Pomade Cream

Learn how to cut and style a Faux Hawk with pomade cream. This is a great hairstyle for anyone with hair that grows forward and to the center. This particular model also has an extremely difficult hairline to taper out so a few different barbering techniques are necessary such as clipper over comb and scissor over comb.

Start on the top using the barber shear over comb technique. Slightly round the corners leaving the back long enough to lay down. Use the clipper over comb technique on the sides and back before fading. Fade the 3 ¾ blade down to a 3 ½ blade. Keep the fade below the temples. Use a downward clipper motion on the hairline cutting against the grain. Use the clipper and scissor over comb techniques to complete the tapered neckline. Outline the haircut with a t-outliner without leaving a hard line on the back of the neck by using an upward shaving motion pulling the clipper away before you get to the hairline.

For the style start by applying a drop Zorian Of New York firm hold gel. Our gel is a specialty blend of gel and pomade that 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, to the center, and then up in front. This will mold the hair into place and give fine hair a thicker and fuller look and feel. Finish the style by applying our Zorian Of New York Grooming Cream. Start by taking a full fingertip amount of product out of the jar and completely emulsifying into the palms of your hands. Our grooming cream will give the hair a medium shine and hold that will keep the style all day. It is infused with coconut and lavender oils which moisturize the hair and scalp and also contain essential vitamins to help to keep your hair healthy and strong.  Apply to the hair by pushing forward on the top layer, then to the center, and finally the front to the back down to the roots. Finish by pushing the hair back down with your hands and up in the front while creating texture with your fingertips. The grooming cream is an extremely versatile product that will not harden up but still give a nice hold. Best of all it will rinse out with ease leaving absolutely no leftover residue.
