How To Style a Slicked Back Hair Cut with Pomade

In this video tutorial learn how to style a slicked back hair cut with pomade. This many times is the missing step for most men when styling their hair. To get that just out of the barbershop or salon look the hair needs to be styled correctly and the proper amount of the best type of product used. As a barber for almost 3 decades now I hear many times after finishing with a client the phrase “I will never get my hair to look like this.” My response if you follow my styling instructions it will look the same every time. Just takes a little effort.

How To Style a Slicked Back Hair Cut with Pomade:

1. Towel dry the hair thoroughly to remove the excess water.

2. Use a blow dryer. The brush and the blow dryer must move together to be effective. Using a nozzle will direct the heat for best results.

3. Dry the hair straight back on the top and sides and to the center in the back. Roll the brush on top to get a little bit of lift. The hair will naturally flatten out when applying the product so this will help the to avoid the final style looking to flat.

4. Apply the pomade. In this case we are using our Zorian of New York water soluble pomade. It is important that the hair is completely dry so it will not dilute the product at all and lessen the hold.

5. Use an ample amount of product and apply first with your fingertips on the top and sides to get the hair down to the scalp. Then take the palms of your hands and press down on the sides so it doesn’t look to puffy.

6. Use a comb first to comb the product through the hair. Next, use a vent brush to loosen up the hair but keep the slicked look. The wider the teeth the more it will separate the hair which is a personal preference.

 

 

Barbering Demonstrations at IBS New York

Barbering Demonstration at IBS New York

I had the honor of teaching 2 barbering demonstrations at IBS New York . It was a great experience meeting so many people in my home state. Many of whom I have met through my online subscription, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. I also had the pleasure to see many familiar faces that have attended hands on classes at my barbershops.

The first class I taught was titled “Classic Barbering 101”. See the class description below:

Learn the differences and stunning similarities between classic and modern barbering. Find out how the tools, techniques, and haircuts have changed as well as stayed the same. Watch third generation barber Greg Zorian demonstrate a haircut using techniques and styles from the “good old days” as well as today.  Leave this class with a better understanding of the history of our industry as well as what a barber means to his/her community.

The next class I taught was titled “How To Cut and Style the Perfect Pomp”. See the class description below:

Learn the many barbering techniques necessary to create a perfectly balanced pompadour. Using a mix of scissor over comb, clipper over comb, straight razor sculpting, fading, and blending techniques Greg will walk you through the step by step process to completing this popular haircut. You will also learn the styling techniques and products necessary to make your pompadour stand out in a crowd.

I would highly recommend attending both of the International Beauty Shows held in New York City and Las Vegas. The education department does an outstanding job of hiring the best educators in the hair industry. After sitting in on many of my colleague’s classes including technical, business, and motivational I came away inspired and more motivated than ever to get back to work building my  barbershops, seminar company, and product company.

Children’s Hard Part Haircut Styled with Pomade

The hard part is a very popular hairstyle for all ages. The video below demonstrates the children’s hair part haircut styled with pomade.

1. For best results start by applying a very small amount of Zorian of New York firm hold gel to the hair while it is slightly damp.

2. Rub the gel thoroughly through the hair down to the roots.

3. Use a hair dryer to dry the hair straight forward, to the side, and then back. This will create the shape.

4. Next, apply the water soluble  Zorian of New York Classic Pomade. Emulsify completely in your hands and then apply through your hair.

5. Comb the hair forward, to the side, and the up and back in the front. This will create the classic hard part look that will stay in place with a high shine all day.

For a looser look use a wide tooth comb or pick. For a tighter cleaner look use a comb with the teeth close together and comb the hair again the same as before after the wide tooth comb or pick is used.

The Ivy League Haircut For Children

The Ivy League haircut for children is a great hairstyle for those kids who have a circular growth pattern around their head with the hair in the crown  always wanting to stand up. The idea is that we clipper the crown area  to the same length as the sides and back and blend into the top and front. Especially with a circular growth pattern the hair lays down nicely and combs to the side easily. This style will grow out evenly and is easy for the child or parents to brush in the morning.

The following video tutorial demonstrates how to cut and style this very popular haircut for young boys.

1. Cut over the crown with a number 3 clipper guard or blade.

2. Fade up to the top with the number 3 clipper guard or blade.

3. Finish the sides and the back with a number 2  clipper guard or blade.

4. Outline the haircut by tapering with an adjustable haircut and finish with an outliner.

5. Blend the top with the clipper over comb technique leaving the hair longer towards the front.

6. Use the scissor over comb technique to touch up the front leaving it long enough to comb to the side and flip up in the front if desired.

7. Style with Zorian Of New York grooming cream for a medium hold and medium shine that will last all day. The grooming cream is infused with all natural ingredients of coconut oil and lavender oil to keep the hair and scalp moisturized with a healthy shine. The product will rinse out with ease without any leftover residue.
