How To Get The Slicked Back Undercut

To get a slicked back undercut, you’ll need at least 3 to 5 inches of hair on top of your head. When visiting your local barbershop, you’ll want to ask for an undercut or faded undercut on the sides with a long layered top. You can even request a line up around the temples and forehead for a sharper look.

Furthermore, because the slicked back haircut is a very easy and versatile hairstyle, you’ll be able to style the cut with almost any hair type or texture with the exception of curly hair. This means that the slick back works great with thick, thin, straight or even wavy hair.

Ultimately, the best part about any slicked back undercut hairstyle is that it is incredibly simple to style. Because the sides are so short, the only part that needs styling is the long hair on top.

How To Style Slicked Back Hair

When styling slicked back hair, it is important to have a high-quality pomade and comb or brush. The type of hair pomade you choose depends on whether you want a strong or medium hold and a high shine or matte finish. For wavy or thick hair, we recommend a strong-hold pomade and for a textured, natural finish, you should buy a matte styling product.

How To Style The Slicked Back Undercut

For the best way to get your hair slicked back:

  1. Start with slightly damp hair after a shower.
  2. Using a finger or two, scoop out a small amount of pomade. Rub between your hands and evenly apply throughout your hair. Start with less if you want a textured style as you can always add more product later for a shiny, sleek finish.
  3. Using a comb or brush, start to comb your hair back. Start at your forehead and use long, smooth strokes all the way to the back of the head.

At this point, you can decide on a classic or modern slick back. The classic slick back is modeled after the 1950’s greaser hairstyles with a flat, strong hold, and high shine finish. The modern slicked back undercut allows for more volume and a slightly messy, textured finish. To get the modern look, just use your fingers to continue to style your hair back.
